down to earth

With a bump. After two weeks of lovely amazing holiday in Kenya including a Safari, I’m back in the realm of Albion and feeling the after holiday come down in a big horrible way.

I took over 3,000 photos, of which I’ve no doubt about 2950 will go straight in the bin. Here’s a photo of the Alps from 33,000 feet to get things started; full post to follow.

Bye for now!

vroom beep yay!

Let’s face it, this summer was crap, depsite the met office promising us what they called a “barbeque summer”. So I’ve decided to do my bit for global warming, and bought myself a car with a 4.6 litre V8 engine. It makes so many C02s that it’s actually closer to a plane than a car.

Obviously this is a joke – I don’t hate the environment and I don’t want to kill seals and dolphins (well, maybe seals – with their shifty eyes and sneaky ways, they can’t be trusted).

I do however only do about 3 miles a year in my car, so I’m actually polluting less than all you folks in your Toyota Pious and Honda Insights – and certainly less than the Rainbow Warrior chucking out carcinogens from it’s massive diesel engines. Oh, and I’ve got another car – not because I need one – but simply because I want one, and I can have one. It’s old, and gets really bad fuel economy too – but I only do about 1 mile a year in that one.

HA! In your face greenpeace, I’m more environmentally friendly than you are!

Something bigger… And much, much badder. Or more bad if you prefer correct English.
