Use your vote to Protest. Vote… Tory?

April 1, 2015

It’s been over a month since my last post, because things have been rather busy. I will get round, at some point, to getting back on here.

Today, however, I have a remarkable message for voters in Aldridge-Brownhills.

Vote Tory.

3 hours 51 minutes 11 seconds

Today I completed my first half marathon.

tl:dr I did sports. Equal parts exhausted; astonished; smug as.

Out this afternoon with one of the boys and we spotted some serious training action on the railway by Tesco in Walsall.

Giving it a Tri

February 6, 2015

Walsall’s Slowest Triathlete is back in the saddle. After the wonderful fun of last year’s Walsall Triathlon they’re back this July 12th, and entries are now open.

I should imagine those who are most interested already know, but if it’s something you fancy you can apply here.

And for the record, here’s what I’ll be trying to beat:


Snow Champions Needed

January 20, 2015

I’m a Snow Champion. Walsall Council have funding in place to support 250 local people who will undertake to clear sections of pavement outside their house for the general benefit of the local community.

I'm not being funny about this, but I live in Aldridge. There are an awful lot of people who are a bit older than me and shouldn't be expected to be out and about if conditions are poor underfoot. I live very close to a senior school with hundreds of pupils walking past my front door daily. I live close to a convenience store with a high footfall. It appears I need to do my bit.

Many thanks to Paul Leighton for organising and equipping me. I'm only sorry there appears to be a shortage of volunteers.

This is your chance to get involved. Follow the link at the top of the page to find out more and volunteer to serve.

With snow forecast, it’ll be my pleasure to clear it as fast as snow off a council-issue shovel.


Gamification of Fitness

January 2, 2015

The people at Strava really know their target audience. I’m not even that athletic, and I’m already getting out on the road trying to set myself some records.

Check your change and receipt

January 1, 2015

After a big shop today we loaded up the car and came home with a very expensive shop. A quick look at the receipt reveals why: one 99p item put through as 99 items.

99 of an item at 99p (one line on the receipt) gives you a cost of £98.01 Read the rest of this entry »
