Spotted this in the paper whilst waiting for food the other day. Made me chuckle given it was in a Cambridge Newspaper. I guess next week will be ‘Plot to turn Hitler into a Liberal Democrat’…

Finally found this on YouTube as I often describe to people the concept of the Cambridge spoiled child with the dumb parents who dote after them…  

Spotted this the other week at Cambridge station: Platform hosts ? Kind of sounds like some sort of sex trade !

Spotted this in a magazine yesterday and noticed that bars are selling it: So the people who make Stella are now doing Cider. I can just imagine the novelty factor on Friday nights combining Stella Lager and Stella Cider. I wonder what the name will be – beaten snake ?

Lots of upcoming travel. I’ve realised I’m not going to be in the UK much over the next few months. Still, should keep the stress level down, save for the times having to travel through UK airports. The Virgin flight has changed to 2hrs later now (much better than 2hrs earlier once which was a [...]
