This is a review I wrote a while back, but I have now updated it (October 2008) - it's a long one so be warned.

Workington and how I came to live there.... Review with images

Watch batteries & repairs Review with images

AdvantagesSave money, do a better job, easy to do

DisadvantagesNot advised on expensive watches

"This review hasn’t just been created for the reason of saving money but more on avoiding being ripped off from an industry not usually known for this. A number of years ago my wife gave me as a present a lovely Citizen watch, it was a chronograph style with a moon phase feature, stop watch & alarm. The alarm was particularly helpful as I travelled a lot & it saved me carrying a travel clock. Around six months after the guarantee expired the watch ..." Read review

Pete Waterman: Explain that, Richard Dawkins

AdvantagesHe's not as dangerous as Phil Spector (allegedly)

DisadvantagesHe's nowhere near as good. Definitely.

"Permit me a 50th review indulgence. I did have something else prepared, but on reflection 'prepared' wasn't really the word.

When Chelli met Ossie... Review with images

AdvantagesThe opportunity to praise a legend for the last time.

DisadvantagesSo sad to see the big man go.

"...least, Stood Peter Osgood. Ossie epitomised everything that was fashionable in South-West London in those heady days, and the Kings Road set turned up in their thousands to see the great man play. I was fortunate enough to see Ossie play twice in his last season at Stamford Bridge before club politics saw him shipped out to Southampton. And he was everything I'd dreamed him to be. An awesome centre forward with immense strength, Ossie was also ..." Read review

What A Year, My Year On Ciao!

AdvantagesI think i've given some good advice

DisadvantagesI still think my writings awful

"...away cost us pretty much everything we had come accustomed to, we came home to a year of being absolutely penniless. But in October 2005 I found Ciao, believe me or not through the discovery of Ciao I fell into a chain of good luck that continues to this day ........ Touch wood (hitting head)! Lucky from a certain point of view, unlucky from another; please read on and take heed. October 2005 While doing a days filming in London where I stood ..." Read review
