Exhausting

Bloody mad isn't it?  At times of increased awareness (read: acceptance) that there IS such a thing as Global warming, and that car exhausts aren't exactly helping matters - new motors sold recently all seem to sport exaggerated / stylised, extra-large exhausts pipe endy-thingies - in sort of space vehicle type shapes, so you can stylishly proclaim to all just how much crap you're spewing out as you drive to Tescos.  Bloody weird.

No matter if you have an older, smaller engined car - just chuck an after-market wide-bore exhaust on, AND IT'LL SOUND LIKE A FERRARI! - fabulous.
Young (and not so young) twerps can blip their throttle pedals up and down the HMO's thin streets at one-in-the-morning for chrissakes - believing for all their worth that it doesn't make their little car sound THOROUGHLY INADEQUATE.

I don't understand, I really don't.

Cold snap


Blimmey the weather babes have been excited - every damned weather report for the past week has been peppered with dark mutterings, heavy expressions and superlatives - all   about the upcoming cold spell (April 25/26 - 2017).

It's almost as if they feel finally justified in their roles - in their lives - they are, at last, the NEWS they always wanted to be.

Eh?  Didn't we all get told this about forty years ago?

Christmas, Slade and the killer ear-worm

Somehow, to me, Slade's 'So here it is, Merry Christmas' (no doubt the title is less threatening than this) seems to speak of absolutely everything that Christmas, to me, ISN'T.

I don't know about you - but I reckon flip-phones are going to make a come-back
