What a totally stupid & moronic suggestion.

Good to see that the Consumer Association (that great publisher) is looking out for people - not.
Their Chairman is advising folks to use LayAway to help in these difficult times.
For those unclear - this means that each week you go to Land of Leather or Adams and give them a few bob. When you've enough bobs handed over you can buy that new couch or the Communion clothes. 
Our wonderful consumer champions seem to have missed the obvious flaw - when you turn up to Land of Leather or Adams you'll find that they are gone and as an unsecured creditor so is your money. Needless to say the CAI suggest you clarify matters eg ask the retailer "are you going to go bust in a few weeks ?". We all know what answer you'll get.
Sheesh.  What a shower.

Bloody Typical

The City Council puts down special conduit blocks and a contractor replaces them with concrete in Winthrop Street

I would like to thank my manager, barber.....

Well Holy God ! I've just found out that I've been nominated for Best Photo Blog. Quite a shock really - didn't think my loyal readers were into that sort of thing (taking the mickey etc etc.). Still now I get to put up this big logo on a posting.

Why does Waterstones close early on Friday ?

The title says it all really.
Into town this evening to raid M&S "Dine for 2" (the largish chicken easily does the family) and wandered up to Waterstones for a browse and a book. 
It was 17:55 and in I wandered to be told that they were closing. 
Closing at 18:00 on a Friday ? I couldn't believe it - Zavvi were open (complete with death-rattle), Argos were open (complete with new catalogue), HMV were open, CPW & Meteor were open as were Easons and a host of others. 
Do people not buy books on Friday nights anymore ?
