The British Empire (well what’s left)

The British Empire at its zenith was a place where the sun never set and it ruled over a quarter of the world’s population. At the moment the remnants of the empire are focusing on other matters. Dad and I are mulling over stockpiling, but then again that is less time in the Waters Green [...]

Macclesfield taxis

Right, let us get onto more chat about the taxi service in Macclesfield! Two of the major firms, namely Macclesfield Radio Cars and Silvertown, repeatedly let the side down when it comes to delivering a good service, well for that matter a taxi service in Macclesfield that actually turns up a) on time, or b) [...]

Macclesfield Radio Cars and Silvertown

A new toy, a flat tyre, Cobley ingenuity.

On driving Dad’s car back from the town centre I heard a starange noise, on pulling over, I discovered a flat back left tyre. Off to Halfords for a compressor, which is digital and very good – super fast, and plugs into the lighter. Tyre filled up, unplugged the compressor and all the air flowed [...]

Fourth rant of the day…

And another thing, when I was in the Ibis hotel in Leeds recently I paid for Orange wifi – all the French conspiring together. And whilst reliable and super fast (nice work you frogs) I was somewhat annoyed at the fact that the bloody login details did not turn up via SMS until the next [...]
