The Power Of Teh Internets!

Amazing - totally, truly, fucking unbelievably amazing!   I casually clicked on a topic tonight, to view the last post by 'Politician'. In his post, he linked to a Guernsey forum. Nothing too unusual with that as a rule but I lived there for 8 years and despite my best efforts, I had yet to find an active forum over there to get in touch with people I used to know.   Anyway, I clicked the link and had a look around and a particular part of the forum caught my eye so naturally, I clicked it a

Wired

Right, I'm sick of not getting enough sleep. It doesn't matter what time I go to bed or what I do, I just can't get a decent nights kip. It has been suggested to me by another forum member that I need to re-set my body clock by skipping a nights sleep so, tonight that is what I will do. I've stayed up all night before, but then gone to bed in the morning so I've not quite managed it yet.Hopefully it'll work. Got a pretty busy day tomorrow with one thing and another so I should hopefully be reall

Understanding

I've had this tonight with several people and I'm not sure if it is me or them.In conversation on MSN and in threads on the forum, I've just not understood what others have been saying and, in trying to get my point of view across to them, they've not understood me.This may well be a lack of understanding of the English language on their part or maybe I'm just not quite right tonight.Anyway, I've read and re-read all of the threads and my MSN logs and I think I've explained myself pretty well to

Are We Alone - Part Deux

Following on from the 'Are we alone' post made earlier, it struck me that at times, I and for that matter others are alone on this forum (and, no doubt many others across the globe). You know that point, when no-one else that is a registered poster (or a regular poster for that matter) during the early hours of the morning when all seems quiet and you pretty much have the place to yourself (but in reality, you don't, because you are being watched, by the army of 'guests' that lurk out there).I r

Are We Alone?

I've asked myself this question many, many times and I would like to think that we are not. What I mean by this (if you haven't worked it out already) is are there other inhabited worlds out there? If so, are they as advanced as us, more advanced or less so?Who are they, where are they and will we ever know for sure in our lifetime?I'm fascinated by this, I really want to know the answer.I wonder if we ever will?

2005 - Happy New Year

Well, I've not posted anything in here for a bit so I thought I'd use the new year as an opportunity to post some news.I'm expecting a busy January, having been off work for 12 days, I'll be expecting a rush when I get back on the 6th. Following on from my 'Ghosts from the past' post, I've had another person from my past pop up recently, she'll be over twice in January as her bank is re-locating here from Guernsey and she's helping with the changeover. We'll be out for the odd beer or two and ma

Ghosts From The Past.......

Well not exactly but I had rather a shock today when an old friend who no longer resides on the island strolled into the shop. I guess it's been around 2½ years since I've seen him and it was a real breath of fresh air to do so, if a little spooky. I went for a smoke after he'd left and reflected on our conversation and a whole heap of really great memories came flooding back. I really miss those days, when nothing really mattered much and life was just about having a bloody good time and a laug

Late Night Shopping (a Rant)

Well, working in retail (in Ramsey) I have made the effort to open on the designated dates for the 3 years that I've had my shop in Parliament Street. To date, I've not exactly been wowed by the crowds during this time and I'm beginning to wonder if there is any point to it. I'm sure there are a few shops that do very well during this time but I bet there's a heck of a lot more that don't. I don't really mind working the extra hours (was a 13 hour shift yesterday though) but I do mind the fact t

Funnies

I'm sure I'm not alone in wishing I had a camera to hand to catch all of those funny moments that happen in life. Well today, I managed to do just that afer vowing to always have my camera to hand after missing too many of them.To set the story, I was glancing out of the window at work and noticed an ambulance parked outside (not that unusual I guess, it's often parked up in Parliament Street. What made it different this time was the fact that a fixed penalty ticket had been attached to the wind

Brrrrrrrrr (continued!)

Hmmm, hitting it doesn't seem to help either. Who ya gonna call? My trusty boiler engineer will be paying me a visit sometime next week methinks

Brrrrrrrrrr

It's cold tonight, more so because my boiler refuses to fire up for more than 10 seconds!Its been playing up for the last week or so and I thought I had the problem licked (the wind blows the pilot light out when it is coming from a certain direction) but, having totally secured the outlet from the wind from all 4 directions tonight (utilising various bits of garden furniture and the wheelie bin!), it still isn't working and I'm fecking freezing! I hope it's working in the morning because I real

Tunes

Still listening to the Deep Heat albums tonight, they started something on the music forum the other night, that's for sure. It's amazing how you seem to forget the music you grew up with but it's nice to look back on it every once in a while. I'm currently without a sound system at home so my options are somewhat limited. I can play CD's and listen to mp3's on my pc but if I want to listen to a cassette (of which I have hundreds) my only option is to play them in the car or, listen to them on a

Open Sesame

Ooo look, a new toy for me to play with.I've never had a blog before but I have enjoyed reading many others over the years.I don't really have much of an idea as to what I'll post here but I'll try not to make it too dull.That'll do for now anyway, I've broken my duck so to speak.
