Being held up on the Underground with no data proved quite exciting. Can anyone beat that?!

Lumiere London. I love outside art installations. I hope this becomes an annual event. The Durham version looked better though.

Six years of requests and still no option to show end times in Google Calendar's month view.  Sad times.

Out of all +Google​ products #Calendar is their worst in terms of basic features (as you say 'Event End Times' views and a decent month/next 3 week view, etc) and I will also add +Google Photos​ to this, because since it detached from +Google+​ and they stopped supporting #Picasa it's just missing so much 😑

A collection of hair-raising beards... 
I originally saw the National Beard and Mustache Championships in the local news paper in Vegas, where I currently live. I had missed the 2012 Championship

A very traditional old pub tucked away round the back of the Charlotte Street Hotel and Rathbone Hotel. Peaceful at the weekends, but a lot more hectic on weeknights in the summer owing to the large number of offices nearby. The pub is trying to be upscale with a high end dining menu upstairs, but the whole building is very much overdue a deep clean if it wants to be upscale. Still, the staff are quite friendly and there's a good vibe and some random ales on offer, so it's worth a visit.

Combining good coffee and light food with a steadily rotating selection of art on the walls. Art and coffee? Curators Coffee? Get it? Get it? Very droll. Chortle. The coffee is pretty good. Not the best coffee I've had in the area, but not far from it. You'll make the most out of a visit here by asking about the special beans they have and what they'd recommend. I normally go for a Flat White but after a conversation with the friendly barista he convinced me to try a filter coffee made with one of their single origin beans. It was a great choice and a more enjoyable flavour experience. The artwork on the walls is well-executed. There's a wide variety along a couple of overarching themes, so lots to look at and challenge your tastes. They make for good conversation topics. There's additional seating downstairs, which is very handy as upstairs gets cramped in the afternoons.

I've been going to Littleheath for 30 years and very little has changed, which isn't a bad thing necessarily. It's a smallish garden centre with a decent aquatics department and a fair outdoor plant area. There's also a decent café that does jacket potatoes, salads, quiches and tarts. There's basically everything you need for basic home landscaping and gardening, plus some gifts, homeware, and basic interior design stuff, mostly in the 'kitsch' camp. The staff are mostly very friendly and it's much less stressful than bigger, busier garden centres in the region.

A beautiful piece of art and technology with a wonderful / gruesome legend behind it. Get here at sunrise to avoid the crowds, and watch your pockets - the distraction of the clock chiming is the perfect opportunity for thieves. The tower is well worth the climb to the top - the views are exquisite. Again, either go at sunrise or sunset to avoid the crowds and also get the best light.

A standard example of the Hilton group's corporate/budget level chain. This Doubletree looks much nicer on the inside than it does from the street. The rooms are average with good firm beds. The corridors can be a bit hot, especially in the summer, and the air conditioning can be quite loud, but otherwise it's fine. The breakfast is typically overpriced for this type of hotel but slightly better than the average in terms of food options and quality.

The go-to place for DJ equipment in London. The shop is tiny but they cram a lot of stuff in, and the equipment ranges from bedroom-DJ level up to pretty high end. They can order custom stuff if you want them to. There's also the ability to hire stuff if you need it. The service is excellent and the staff are very personable. They look after regular customers. It would be ace if the place was a bit bigger but in central London it's hard to ask for more.

A lovely little spa with friendly staff and a good range of treatments. A very light, clean and airy space with plenty of treatment rooms, and a peaceful atmosphere. Treatments include manicures, pedicures, massages, facials, hair removal, body scrubs etc. They book up quickly so make sure you call them to book in advance - if you just drop in you're likely to be disappointed, especially at the weekend. I've had a couple of treatments here and will definitely be returning again in the future.
