As I write this Jacqui (the mother of ouldjr – another shameless plug) is meeting a lady to have a chat about Amway . So what do you all think? Is Amway a good thing or is it bad? I’d be interested in your comments in two areas; The products themselves The methods they use […]
An excellent link courtesy of jjostm which highlights the arcane perils (not) of Dungeons and Dragons. But seriously, I’m in 2 minds about fantasy role-playing. I spent years of my life in D&D (I’m a purist – AD&D didn’t do it for me) and don’t think that I was affected at all. Having said that […]
Well, I wouldn’t have believed it but someone has actually taken offence and started trolling on my additional journal, ouldjr!!! I thought it would be enlightening to point you towards it. So check it out here.
What can I say? It was awesome!!! We went to watch yesterday morning and thoroughly enjoyed it. The vistas were breathtaking. The battles were huge!!! The story was not tweaked too badly…. But first, why do we go and watch these films? This summarises brilliantly the dichotomy in our house. Actually, Jacqui liked the story […]
It is on!!!! Tomorrow morning we go to watch the Return of the King. We geared up for this event with a pizza-supported session yesterday evening with a good friend and the DVD of Two Towers. Watch this space for feedback.

The ban is, of course, wider than headscarves (that’s a perculiarly prominent issue in France), it is proposed to extend to items such as Jewish […]
So, we’ve had an interesting morning. The movers were here and we got everything packed. Ended up being over 200ft^3 but a good price. We can thoroughly recommend them. So the flat is much barer now. We’ll be looking for someone to rent it now. I’m writing to you on our new laptop, a cheap […]
Yeek, what am I going to do? According to this England are drawn against Austria in the World Cup 2006 qualification. Now, my parents are English and Austrian and I have both kits. As the local here would say, “what to do???!!!!! Plus we get to whup both Wales and Northern Ireland too….
A review with a difference. I don’t want to particulaly go into the ins and outs of how good Michael Caine (British = always good) or Toby McGuire were. Instead I want to share a few thoughts of what this movie (and, of course, the book that it was based upon) are trying to tell […]
