Pub v Supermarket

A lot as been said about the on going fued between your local pub and supermarket.
On one hand the pub is a great place to meet up with mates, have a few or more beers and catch up on all the goings on in peoples lives. Now there is no smoking allowed in pubs, I really enjoy going. Your clothes don't smell if cigarette smoke and your lungs are the same health has when you started the evening. Plus the smug feeling you get seeing all the smokers outside rules.
Just lately supermarkets have been upsetting the apple cart, I think the biggest threat to pubs is the uber cheap beer in the supermarkets. Yesterday I bought four one pint cans of Stella Artois 4 for £2.99. If I had bought these in my local it would have nearly £12. Add onto this the enevitable kebab at the end of the night and you've just done nearly £20, or to put it another way, you've saved £17....
My personal choice is the pub, the getting out of the house and meeting up with mates and having the crack will take alot of beating.

Today at work I witnessed a serious fight between a Director and a sales manager! I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
Weapons used included a calor bottle, spirit level and a dog. Luckily things stopped just before things got totally out of hand and someone was seriously hurt or worse.

Oh well, let's see what happens tomorrow?

iPhone 2 months on

I've been using my new iPhone 3Gs for two months now. All I can say is that it's the best phone I've ever used.
It's quick easy interface make it easy to use and the app store makes downloading different applications a doddle.
A down side is the battery life, a normal days use will use a full charge and typing a number whilst on the phone is impossible.
Overall, I'll give the iPhone 9.5/10....

Thailand back in the news

As I write this blog, blood is literally being spilt in the streets of Bangkok. Not through the armed struggle of certain political groups or another military coup, but by red shirt demonstrators giving their blood and then having it poured at the gates of the Goverment building. This is to show that whilst the goverment doesn't have blood on its hands [Yet] it will have blood on its feet!!!

Seems a bit mad to me, but the day I understand the Thai mentality is now beyond my grasp.

The million man march by the red shirts as turned into the 100000 man camp out. I'm not sure they are going to gain anything. I'm not even sure why i'm writing about it any more, nothing I say will ever have any bearance on the bull shit going on.

All I know is, the baht is now only worth 48baht to the pound and no longer offers a good place to go on holiday any more.

Yes, i'm still here

I know, I know its been a few months since I last posted.

The main reason has been lack of moral, i've been very busy at work and in all fairness this blog as taken a back seat.

Things are slowly getting back in shape and so i'll start trying to post a bit more frequently.
