Our little girl, Fleur, is three years old today. Found abandoned in a walled garden with a dead sibling and a severely broken leg she is another one of our failures to foster! Having spent three weeks nursing her back to health with either Sands or I in the apartment with her at all times [...]
Dusky (or I should say Me RT – Roof Top) is 2 years old today. By far the most laid back of the cats he gets on with everybody, but has a new best friend these days in Kasper. They spend a lot of time fighting and playing, and are often found curled up asleep [...]
Wow, our first cat is 7 years old today! Moreno without a shadow of a doubt shaped the way our life is today, and is still very much Number 1 in this house. Despite all the changes that have happened to his world since he was the only cat (5 other cats and currently Teo) [...]
Can’t help wondering how many people of my generation know who Andre Cassagnes was, despite the fact that many will have played for hours as children with his iconic toy invented in the late 50′s: the Etch A Sketch Andre has died at the age of 86 and whilst reading this sad news I couldn’t [...]
Happy New Year. I send you these greetings once again from the elevated position of ‘being on the Wagon’! Once more it will be a dry January for me: the 27th year in a row I haven’t drank alcohol in January. As for the title of this post: Yes: exercise! Walk couple times a day, [...]
This is an interesting article with some good advice for those looking to take their pets abroad on holiday with them by car.
Up until recently I had both the 2001 Fat Boy and the 2002 Road King Classic here in Spain, so was fortunate to have them set up as solo (Fat Boy) and two up (Road King Classic. Personally I think the two bikes look best set up this way, but check out the photos below [...]
Just fitted the new Brawler Solo Seat to the Road King Classic, took all of ten minutes and looks great. Haven’t had a chance to try it out yet as bit wet and am tired from the last UK ALStrays Transport so going to save that pleasure until tomorrow. Huge thanks to all at Stoke [...]
Searching online recently for a bluetooth motorbike helmet I cam across a company called The Helmet Place who sell a V-can Flip Up Bluetooth Helmet for £149.99 Having now had the opportunity to use said helmet I am very impressed. Great price obviously and while style is a matter of taste I love the look [...]

The new iPad screen is amazing! The clarity is impressive to say the least. Just restoring the backup of my old one to the new one so more later but am very very impressed with the screen so far.
I see that Apple are now showing delays of two to three weeks in the US, although the early orders should still arrive on the 16th March, and stores are due to start selling them on that day as well. Not sure how that will go down though! I imagine that if you went to [...]
Pardon the pun but LMAO at this one! “A Scottish man has been given an extra stretch inside after prison officials found him trying to smuggle both a mobile phone and its charger into prison up his bottom. Christopher Hughes was facing a nine-year sojourn in the Big House for stabbing four people outside a [...]
Suspect this will be on interest to many a blogger. A proposed new model of media regulation for Australia says that bloggers who posts receive just 41 page impressions a day could be forced to apologise to anyone they wrong on their blog and to issue corrections.
Yesterday evening, the EU lawmakers European Parliament and the Council of Ministers managed to broker a deal that will allow mobile phone, smart phone and tablet users to enjoy much lower costs when using their devices abroad. The deal came after some hard discussions between the two institutions. The citizens’ initiative “Europeans for Fair Roaming” [...]
Finally found time to watch The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey last night. I was amazed when I first heard that Jackson had managed to turn the book into a trilogy of three hour films, with my initial reaction being that they must have more stuffing than a Turkey at Christmas. Having watched it last night [...]
Like an angel from the heavens, an “angel” investor is a person or group that provides funding for various reasons. Usually, the reason is to invest in a small start-up company, and the funds are usually traded for a stake in the company. As start-up companies become more and more popular, angel investors have begun [...]
It has been a while since I have done a review of an application for the Mac. Correction it has been a really long time thinking about it. There is only one reason for this, and that is the simple fact that I had all the applications I needed, didn’t have a need or desire [...]

These dogs are brutally murdered at the end of hunting season in Spain. Thousands of them are abandoned, many are hung from trees, thrown down wells, shot, poisoned. Hunters overbreed these dogs in atrocious conditions, feeding them moldy bread, and keeping them in dark, cold surroundings. Thus far, the Spanish government has turned a blind [...]
