Are satnavs making us dumb?


Back when I first learned to drive, it all used to be so complicated whenever you went on a long journey.  First of all, you’d have to really plan out your route, find a road atlas, sit down, write down the directions, and hope for the best as far as traffic was concerned.  I remember […]

1400 miles because of inertia

the the

I like many people, suffer from inertia, procrastination, and sometimes I just simply find it very difficult to sit down and get things started. So when I heard that the lead singer from a band which I have followed from childhood, Matt Johnson of “The The”, had released a new movie, called The Inertia Variations, I […]

Am I Too Late?


These days I very rarely watch live television instead I tend to favor things like Netflix and Amazon Prime. However, on Saturday afternoon I decided to switch on the TV to see what was on. Wow! What a load of rubbish. Over 30 channels of crap, no wonder Amazon Prime and Netflix are doing so […]

Ferraris, McLarens and Millionaires

Yesterday, I showed my car at the Beaulieu supercar show. This was my first ever visit to a car show or car museum, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect.  My car ended up being placed next to a big line of Ferraris, McLarens, and Lamborghinis, and I spent most of the day answering […]

What Do You Do For A Living

As you probably know, a couple of months ago I purchased a brand-new Tesla model S electric car. I picked it up from the showroom and drove it home. When I got home I carefully backed it into the driveway and got out of the car. One of my neighbours was watching and walked over […]

The Dyslexic Hacker


OMG, imagine the best rollercoaster ride combined with your favourite video game, you’re still not even close to the feeling of flying a helicopter… Two weeks ago I was sitting in the pilot seat flying a helicopter for the first time. What an amazing feeling!! I was flying along the sandy beaches of the south […]

Helicopter Insurance?


I was looking through a very unused part of a cupboard the other day and came across a few books from my childhood, and one of them reminded me a bit of one of the reasons I got into marketing.You see, I’ve always had a fascination with how things work.   Even as a child I […]

The Accident


Last Thursday I went on my first continental road trip in my new Tesla. My plan was to take the Channel Tunnel to France and then drive the remaining 300 miles to the house(s) in Normandie. My plan was to see how well the Tesla supercharger network worked in France. Dave was a bit sceptical […]

A Call For Help

Oh crap !! What to do ? I am in a strange country, in a town I don’t know – Phoenix, Arizona I am on my own. It’s 10pm. I have lost my mobile phone. I have no idea where I am. I have no idea where I am staying either, so can’t get back […]

Time For A United Rant

The United Airlines saga is just a total mess from start-to-finish, and it’s really difficult to know where to start in unpicking the sorry saga. I have flown United (from New York to New Orleans) and yes they really do pack them in, they have to be the most Easy-Jet like US carrier there is. […]
