October 5, 2011

So, the time of year is once again approaching when many men and women,boys and girls will be exchanging gifts for Christmas. Yes, between friends and family we will be exchanging copious amounts of games consols, games,bikes,toy cars and inevitibly this year : Iphone/pads.

This is a fine custom and tradition and one that i have most certainly benefited from over my 26years.

There is however, a further present – the office/school present.

My Best man Speech

October 5, 2011

Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen – I do use the term ‘gentlemen’ loosely, as I’ve heard that some of you here today are actually Celtic supporters.

Let me first say that the bridesmaids look absolutely smashing today – Gemma and Danielle, and only rightly outshone by our bride, Linzi. I’m sure you’ll agree with me gentlemen, today is a sad day for single men, as another beauty leaves the available list, and ladies, I’m sure you’ll agree that today’s passing by without  as much as a ripple.

Themes……

October 5, 2011

May aswell start a blog as you mean to go on, with a gripe.

I have heard of  the wordpress website for a long time. I was often humoured by the obvious fact that it is littered with academics each purposing their own view with extensive background knowledge in a subject.

Well, i do not have such knowledge and nor do i care to back up my often abrasive or factually evasive rants.

Things rile me, sometimes- and often – this can be something remarkably simple.

My first problem: signing up to wordpress only to realise that the background ‘themes’ on offer are about as exciting as the academic lecturing that bore me start my own blog in the first place.

‘Blogging’. Interesting word, one that i can only presume was developed within my lifetime and one that should surely insinuate some form of opinion from the author if not personal experience.  Not mearly a regurgetation of textbook quotes by subject matter.
