Christmas Day dinner chez moi. Roast rib of beef and a brussel sprout free dinner.
After a very busy week at Tesco preparing whole salmon and a few mirror carp (Friday 23rd was especially busy) I had an early night on Christmas Eve after watching a Westworld on DVD. Starring Yul Bryner as the dangerous robot cowboy, the film was like the ...

The trails of putting on a pair of jeans when you get older
I have been to make this short video for a while. In fact every time I struggle to stand upright putting on any pair of trousers. Recently I have taken to wearing shorts. It makes life so much easier and I usually get them on the right way round. When I am ...

Casting company thought of me to audition for Captain James T Kirk lookalike.
Apparently my details are a perfect match to play Captain James T Kirk (the 1960s telly version) lookalike. A well known casting company say this in a recent email, so I must believe them. Qualities: I am a man. I have a chin. My funny shaped head would sui...

Theatre Etiquette; how theatres could deal with annoying punters.
Etiquette is something that needs to be learnt and it seems that many people visiting the theatre (perhaps for the first time) have little idea how to behave and think they are sitting in front of their over large telly or at the cinema. Some people can be ...

Top nine most uncomfortable ways to sleep with the cat.
I don't own cats myself but I do cat sit for my neighbour and the two cats, Mr Harris and Madame Soufie, like nothing better than a cosy sleep over. This involves the cat/s sneaking upstairs and positioning themselves on my bed whilst I attempt to sleep. "I...

Is your day getting more and more like Groundhog Day?
I think my working days
are turning more and more like Groundhog Day. Lots of people say that
but hear me out woodchuck-chuckers. I wake up at 5.59am. Suffer the
rigours of an unpredictable shower. More and more the song “ I Got
You Babe” haunts my early mo...

The attraction of a German Christmas Market in Nottingham 2016.
Suddenly the key is word is 'German' at most Christmas Markets and with Nottingham's (better than usual) Christmas Market and attractions this year we seem to have a plethora of stalls that associate themselves with something Germanic. In my mind that is no...

Those cats eat me out of house and home!
First of all I will say that I was never ever influenced by the 1960s film title That Darned Cat! starring the very manly Rock Hudson and possibly a hot to trot vampish female like the lusty sex goddess Doris Day. I haven't looked this up but it is amusing ...

Return visit to the first place I ever cooked a meal: on a pile of rocks in Derbyshire!
Nostalgia is like learning to reverse a car: it is all about looking back. On Monday last I went back to my teenage years favourite haunt. No, not a derelict Yoof Centre in the middle of Chaddesden (a big housing estate near Derby) but rather a beautiful Sc...
