The Reasons... they hurt
Latest estate agent madness: "You can't go to see the house that is for sale because you are selling a house" Cock biting fucktards.

There Exists a Requirement for Information
We lost the house bidding war. A nice place on Flower St that had sitting tenants who would leave in July. All good we thought. We had the highest bid after 6 days of to and fro with emotional spreadsheets and counting pennies down the back of the sofa. Bea...

Miltons Paradise Not Even There to Begin With
A little pano while we try to get SWMBOAW back to full health. Quick trip to Milton Country Park dodging dog shit and suicidal individuals. Someone had dumped a loaf of white sliced in the pool and it sat there unwanted by the birds. A new bench had appeare...

There Will Be Blood
I'm fascinated by how I can turn from a rational human being into a crazed maniac wishing all sorts of plagues on another unknown human being. A new house is needed. We can fit in this one. We being Myself, SWMBO and MiL. Add a two year old girl with a fier...

+Google Wallet  Wallet identity verification email reads just like spam. You want me to send scans of all the identifying documents needed by an identity thief. Really bright. Really really useful.
Why not make it a pop up/notification when you actually use your wallet or at least make it a failure triggered by user action so they see it is genuine - not make it look like an email from Mr Joseph Umwange from Nigeria.

Enter Cruft Force 7
SWMBO is using a dual core PC and a dual core laptop. Neither bad, neither top of the range but all capable of running pristine Windows 7 installs. Pristine. Windows. After 3 years each of them is showing signs of decrepitude. The desktop - normally the las...

Lunch or food, food or lunch
An invite was resent to me today, from a friend. For lunch, to catch up and discuss stuff. When I say 'sent to me' I mean 'sent to me and five others all on the CC list, one of whom I'm on bare speaking terms with, one I dislike, one I like and two people I...

DMC-GM-1 - a strange love affair
A strange love affair indeed. It has so much going for it - small, one may say perfectly formed. Yet in so human a way - flawed fatally. The White Balance button -  hit by my thumb pad more often than I would ever intentionally hit it. The Viewfinder - well...

It may not be a perfect reproduction of an American Diner (it's a mix of East cost, West coast and Gulf state cuisine), but it's pretty darned good. Went with family (including a rather cantankerous 2 year old) and the staff were very pleasant and handled the difficulty of pram and all the junk that it entails. All the lunch staff were very young but were very mature & professional. Service was quick but not rushed. The sides are ENORMOUS. I repeat. ENORMOUS. I have never seen a single portion of onion rings looking like the a children’s stacking ring toy - it was that large. The sweet potato fries were excellent and the burger was very well constructed - not greasy and exceptionally tasty - well balanced flavours. Paying the bill was easy - no waiting, no over insistent attempts to get a dessert order.

Quiet - possibly the only cafe I found in my visit to San Francisco where I could hear myself think. Coffee pretty good - I need to acclimatise my palate to the heavier roast that SF natives seem to like. Pastries to die for - the Chocolate & Almond croissant was an entire meal in its own right - very flaky & crisp - gentle flavour.

A middle of the road, not too expensive underground barn serving pork products with beer. Nothing to write home about. Impersonal service but if not too busy the food arrives so fast it can be useful if you are in a hurry.

Like check-in in the third world. Only 2 security queues that exit directly into an enforced visit to duty free. The gates have enough queueing space for 40 people so queues at gates wind through shops and restaurants.

Very lively Mexican themed restaurant. Food is European-Mexican - Mexican dishes with spices moderated to European taste (but you can order 'muy picante' to bring the chilli levels back up to normal at no extra cost). Portion sizes are satisfyingly large and are quite cheap. Starter to share is very good value. Wish there was more guacamole in the servings. Service was quite fast even for a group of 12.

Wanted to get away from the fried pork and potato dumpling and it didn't disappoint. Great starter of Fire Cup (a very filling bread bowl filled with goulash) would have been enough if I had been any less hungry. Main of fried Zander was excellent and is a must if you have eaten too much meat and need a different taste. Service was very good and the room is quiet - ideal to get away from the noise and relax with food and drink.

Great food. Had foie gras selection to share starter, lamb with olive risotto main and roast figs for dessert. Wine was excellent. To top it all, we went with a baby and the waiters and waitresses helped to keep her calm. Service above and beyond the norm and food that made a great impression. A wonderful discovery for a Monday night. Hope to return soon.
