Lunch or Lawn Chair?

One of the reasons I like working out at the gym (doesn’t that sound cool) instead of at home is because of the camaraderie. And the great thing about the camaraderie is the fact that it will stay that way. I’m never going to become bosom pals with anyone. Once I leave the fitness room I leave them...

‘You’re Lucky to Live here’

The declaration startled me. I was wheeling a wheelbarrow along my neighbour’s side of our fence, looking for Virginia creeper tendrils. The creeper itself is a boon in summer time as it gives both families privacy, but it has to be scanned constantly, especially on our neighbour’s side, as they... Sign in to see full entry.

“Gout? You must be joking!”

“Not at my tender age it isn’t, apart from which, gout is a rich man’s problem and church mice can’t possibly catch it.” I had a mental image of an old squire being pushed along by a nursemaid in his bath chair, foot elevated and his big toe a throbbing, pulsing crimson. It was 10 o’clock on a... Sign in to see full entry.

IS IT M-O-U-L-D, M-O-L-D, or V-O-M-I-T?

I only ask because of yesterday’s shambolic auction. It was the August holiday and because something else must happen on a holiday apart from the utter pleasure of lounging, swilling ice-cold beer and nodding off, there was an August holiday auction. Ell needed to attend and I decided to keep her... Sign in to see full entry.

Hi John What’s new?

Nothing much happening over here in Canada-land except the earthquake……that stopped you in your tracks didn’t it? Remember I told you about the gentle earthquake that took away my earthquake virginity; the one where I was lying in bed reading a good book? The left side of the bed rose up and then...

I’m assuming you wrote this poem Andy, as it was in between the pages of the July Practical Car Classics you sent – the one with the Cortina Estate on the cover. I love all the old cars and especially the photographs of the 1950’s and 1960’s UK main streets. Ell and I have a great time going ‘I’ve... Sign in to see full entry.

….to the United States of America. The U.S.A. is a fascinating, innovative country that we can see from our front porch – and get to in 30 minutes. The fireworks for Independence Day started late last night, and we were lucky enough to be able to see them from the self same porch. We will be over... Sign in to see full entry.

….to all Canadians, each and every one of whom knows how lucky they are to live in such a free country. 33 million people in the second largest country in the world? Perhaps that’s why everybody is so friendly; they don’t know when they might get a chance to talk to another human being? Sign in to see full entry.

A Miracle Gas Pedal Repair

The gas pedal in the Sunfire has been acting up for a few months. It takes half a second, if not more, for the car to move after pressing the pedal. Not only that, it takes off like a small 2000 ultra-silver rocket, frightening me and the drivers in front of me. In car parks I hold my breath as I... Sign in to see full entry.

A Rant about the Government’s answer to 3 mowed down cyclists

Over a month ago a driver of a vehicle drove into a group of cyclists, killing three of them and injuring another three. The cyclists were on a charity run and I think the driver was on his way home after work. There was no alcohol involved. What was involved was a problem that affects every driver...
