MAY  13 THU 

Jezz and I went to Brighton for the first time since the pandemic. We had lunch in Kooks it could well be the best beefburger ever. Shopped around in the lanes and spent a bit in the shops at St. James's Street.

Jezz and I spent a few hours with Nik at hers, keeping her company as she recovers from her operation. We had lunch, fresh rolls and corned beef and tea and cake.

Jezz came home from work with a massive thank you gift. It's the Bosch Aquatak 135 Pressure Washer.

 APR  18 SUN 

Jezz and I had our second jab of the COVID vaccine. We then got our cards stamped and I laminated them when we got home. I keep mine in my wallet, next to my driving licence... not sure I'll use it but it's there now, in case I need to.

 APR  14 WED 

I think we've got a close as we can to replicating the taste and texture of the local baker's Florentine cakes. We make a slab and break it up and call them Florentine Shards.

My beautiful friend, Tim, turned up again today and jet-washed my car. A total surprise... what a love! I seriously love him.

My lovely sister, Michéle, treated me to some of my favourite tea bags; Taylors of Harrogate Yorkshire Tea and 32 Cadbury's Star Bars. Thank you so much.

12 November 1924 - 12 April 2008 "The biggest loss in my life that is, and always will be... my dear father. He continues to live on inside of me: with his laughter in my mind and his love in my heart. Broken and lost, I spend the never-ending task of picking up the pieces... and re-living some of my most cherished memories that have Dad in them." ~ Wayne


A page dedicated to those who have been near and dear to me and that have passed on. 


This page has links to almost all of the mini-videos that I have created over the years. Some are humorous, some nostalgic or feature a partocular event and some are in memory of a loved one.


A controversial page dedicated to men with a certain attraction as they go about their day. As well as my own contributions, many photos that appear are submitted by fans of the page.


This page is all about the cars that I have either had the privilege to drive or ones that I have owned or co-owned. Some of the photos are of the actual car but of the ones where I didn't take a photo at the time: I have had some fun trying to find one that best matches the car.


Here's a page of photos created from using an iPhone app that started a trend of photo editing in comic strip style, just for a laff.

RECOMMENDALTONS has its own recommendations page: if there's a business you're after, then have a look to see if we used the same line of work from someone... if they were fab, they'll be on this page!



We would like to remind our infrequent visitors of the "Previous Quotes" page. Some folk have contributed to over the years without even knowing it! The Previous Quotes page is all about wacky, hysterical, inappropriate and even beautiful statements that have been said by mostly those near and dear.
