82. True Story.

I want to tell you a tale, possibly a short one, but true none the less. It is about the time I played for Newcastle United. Being a lifelong Ipswich Town fan of course I would have loved to have played for them, but things never work out that way. And as Sir Bobby RobsonContinue reading “82. True Story.”

81. New Years and Paperbags

Eat, Drink and be merry my friends. tis the season to be jolly. And also the season to say to every Mayan you meet “Liar, Liar, pants on Fire.” This year has been highly unproductive and I have wasted a lot of time doing very little. I have drunk many beers, eaten many, many chickenContinue reading “81. New Years and Paperbags”

80. Detroit 2 – Pics From Above. And others.

I’ve written about Detroit before but I thought I’d share with you a few pics I took. My Mum and my Sister just come over for a visit and so we had a nose around the city. We decided to take a tour of the Renascence Center.  On the tour they tell you all the interesting factsContinue reading “80. Detroit 2 – Pics From Above. And others.”

79. American-English

A year ago I started this blog with no expectations. I just wanted to write about nothing and make people laugh at some silly stuff. I’ve been amazed how well it has been received and love all the great comments. I’ve read back over the first couple of posts I made a few years agoContinue reading “79. American-English”

74. The Tale of the Missing Glasses

Before I go on with the Tale of the Missing Glasses I would like to mention a few things. First of all, within the next few days my blog will pass the 10,000 hits mark which amazes me totally.  When I started writing it was just to grumble on about wasted youth and all theContinue reading “74. The Tale of the Missing Glasses”

73. Piracy, TV and Dreams.

I was going to write a nice long piece about going shopping at supermarkets, but quite frankly it bored the hell out of me. So I scrapped that for now. I tried, honest I did to finish it, but it just wasn’t going anywhere.So it was time to move on and write about something else. WhichContinue reading “73. Piracy, TV and Dreams.”

71. Hurrumph, or How I became a Grumpy Old Git.

I don’t know why I started to think about this today, but wishing for things, or wanting things that you never get seemed to pop into my head. Theres been a lot of things I’ve wanted and never gotten. But as you get older these things get less, though more focused on certain things. LetsContinue reading “71. Hurrumph, or How I became a Grumpy Old Git.”

60. Skool Daze.

It has been a busy week out on the soccer fields so finding the time to write has been tough this week. But here we are, at it again. And I have to say it is great to have regular readers, it almost makes me feel like that woman from that Julia/Julie movie.  So toContinue reading “60. Skool Daze.”

51. Evolution

Welcome to the world as we know it. Take the time this Easter weekend to smell the daffodils and then mow them accidentals because the grass needs cutting. It may come as a bit of a shocker to some of you, but I am not a religious man. I have my opinions and if you want toContinue reading “51. Evolution”

48. Have A Nice Day.

I am your average Englishman. I like my beer, love my football, pick faults with everything and think I have all the answers. My teeth are bad, but that’s just me. I think Americans have worse teeth than the Brits.  I love tradition, hate change, and can be grouchy at the flick of a switch.Continue reading “48. Have A Nice Day.”
