Even God gets bored

When I first saw the headline of an article in a recent edition of the weekend Times, I had to check that it wasn’t the 1st of April. The author of the article explained that according to his Holiness, the Pope, God is ‘bored’ with rote-learnt prayers that are endlessley recited by congregations across the […]

A true SUV

On Sunday 10 December we said goodbye to our faithful 2007 Nissan X-Trail, which we part-exchanged for a Subaru Forester. We’re delighted with the Forester, but wanted to take a moment to reflect on the vehicle that our family has owbed for 6 years and during which time we have coverd over 70,000 miles. When […]

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was designed by the Eurocrats to help protect the privacy of all its citizens, which must be a good thing, right? But, like so many of the directives that have emerged […]

Service charge rip-off

We went out to dinner with friends recently and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. I had decided to drive so I was stone-cold sober when it came to paying the bill. But, as sober as I was I did not see the 10% service charge that had been automatically included. So, of course we gave […]
