I've been wondering what to do with the incredible number of LinkedIn connection requests I get. And I wrote a thing about it...

Was just looking at the new #OpenData  maps on Ordinance Survey's website. Really good stuff. So good that I wrote a blog about it!

Very good offer on Asus tablets over at Amazon UK. If you've got an old slow tablet, you can trade it in for £50 - making a budget quad-core, 8" HD ASUS tablet just £70!

Do you have a mobile phone contract that is based in Europe? Please could you fill in this quick, three question survey for me on SMS/text messages and voice calls?

Thanks!

If you wouldn't do the same if you were there, it's no exaggeration to say that you have no soul and your life is a meaningless waste.

I've worked with Michael at Greenland Studio on a few projects - primarily graphic design - and it has always been a pleasure. He takes the time to understand the brief, he listens and he has always produces excellent results. I would not hesitate to recommend Greenland Studio - in fact, I often do!

I've been coming to Kelly's in Roman Road since I was tiny when my Nan used to bring me. I remember going in and sitting on the same tables, sliding down the benches with the big railing things at the back and watching the people come in from the market and the man come from the back, holding a tray of pies above his head or a massive pot of mash or liquor and shouting 'mind your backs!' - not that there was any space to move because it was always packed! Then watching the people eating their jellied eels or pie and mash - looking in awe at the ones that were brave enough to use the chilli vinegar! There is nowhere like it in the world and very few that have remained so unspoilt over all those years. The food, the welcome, it's all the same that it's always been - just as you'd want it to be. On a cold day, you almost feel like the place is giving you a hug - it's just an incredible place. It's difficult to explain to anyone that isn't from the area and, to an extent, you just have to trust me when I say that it works. The deal is you get a pie (or two - two's better!) which is a really good beef mince pie with brilliant pastry, mash (or double mash - double mash is better!) which is proper mash freshly made, liquor (I don't know if you can get double liquor - I've never asked - but I don't see how that'd fit on the plate!) which is a sort of parsley sauce which doesn't taste like other parsley sauces and you then put salt and vinegar on it. To me, it needs to be washed down with an orange squash that you get in a plastic sealed cup (I've had it that way for almost 40 years and you ain't changing me now!). It is simply the best thing you're ever going to eat. I see from the menu that they now do things like chicken pie and even a vegetarian pie. Now, I don't really approve of that kind of modern malarky but I suppose if it keeps the vegetarians and the chicketarians happy, then so be it. They also do desserts - which I'm sure are good but (1) how could you fit in a dessert after double pie and double mash and (2) they didn't do it in my day so I can't! Sorry! But I've been increasingly thinking that I need to try the crumble and custard... maybe next time! They also do cans of fizzy drinks - but it's still the cup of squash for me! The other traditional food they do is jellied eels - and actually Kelly's started out as a jellied eel place. Until recently, I'd not tried eel - jellied or otherwise - and the bottom line is that, while I would probably have them here, the problem for me is that I couldn't not have the pie and mash - so I can't! There are other places that do pie and mash. So I'm told... actually I went in one in Romford once. It was alright, I suppose, but it wasn't proper pie and mash and it wasn't from Kelly's in Roman Road. Anyway, in addition to having the best food, they also have the nicest people working there - consistently over the past almost 40 years. Sometimes you see the same faces, sometimes new and the thing they have in common is a smile (even when it's busy and hot) and, if you get a chance to chat, an acknowledgement that they're working somewhere really quite special - somewhere that means a lot more to people than 'just' a plate of pie and mash or eels. My round trip to Kelly's used to be 430 miles. It's now over 1500 miles but I wouldn't begrudge a minute of it! I can't remember a single trip to London that I've made that hasn't had a trip to Kelly's shoehorned into the schedule somehow. And I can't imagine that I will ever not go there. I hope it never changes... ...I'm hungry now!!

If you remember when department stores were already old fashioned and the staff were there to serve you as a customer, be helpful, give good advice and not try to sell you an extended warranty, then you will feel at home at Austins. A proper, genuine, no-pressure, high quality, great value and old fashioned (in a good way) department store with service so superb that it just underlines how bad service is everywhere else. Go to a 'normal' high street shop and see all the tricks they use to get you to buy things. Then go to Austins and you'll realise they do none of that. The place defies gravity! Simply superb with the sort of loyal customer base that you only get from taking care of customers and not ripping them off. What can I say? Austins is how shops should be. And even better.
