Just take it easy, man.

I’m not really a religious person at all, but I do believe that you should “take it easy, man”. To much stress for no reason we all need to chill a bit more. That is where Dudeism comes in nice… Continue Reading →

National clean up

The only think that IRA and other terrorist groups have ever managed to do in the UK. Is the removable of our street bins, there I have said it. Which unfortunately means that people just drop their garage wherever they… Continue Reading →

Computer updates

There is some truth in this cartoon from stickycomics.com. Ubuntu: can be rather annoying too if you have set it to check for update everyday. Though if you turn that off, Ubuntu will not scream at you and nag you… Continue Reading →

TMC’s Guide to Defusing Road Rage

I have more tales of (other people’s) road rage than you could possibly imagine. There’s a new one every day. Yesterday there were two, both moderately upsetting. But I’m not going to tell you what happened, because it’ll just make… Continue Reading →

SEN NIN a Japanese Teppanyaki & Sushi Restaurant

We had a brilliant evening out last Thursday in very good company. The place we went to eat didn’t ruin our fantastic evening, but wasn’t the best experience we have had eating out. It was great to see plenty of… Continue Reading →

Even cyclists need a refresher

The other day I was a passenger in a car, not something that often happens as I tend to cycle everywhere. What got me to put ‘pen to paper’ was the way the driver overtook a cyclist and the driver’s… Continue Reading →

My reply to the age old debate on a car forum

For the record, I’m a regular cyclist, I cycle most days in and around London doing journeys between 2 and 30 miles. Some days I will go out for rides upto 150 miles. I do stop at reds, I use… Continue Reading →

SillyDriver IV

We were on our last leg of our great trip up north. Cycling back from the station and had just endured the H##L that is SW6 when the football is on. Why the heck the council let people park on… Continue Reading →
