Europe…

Q. How does the Italian Army advertise it’s surplus weapons for sale??   A. Never Fired, Once Dropped.   Saw this little titbit in the Daily Mirror today as I was waiting for my hair cut. It made me gwaff, so I thought I’d share it. But it’s got me thinking…   I like Europe. … Continue reading

Next Journey??

Well, the relvolving door of being a MT in LTSB is about to start swinging again… however, I’m managed to engineer a position of complete control on my destiny within the Bank for the next two placements.

Back on the Trains…

Thunder & Suits…

Interesting day… well not really… but anyways… I’ll start at the beginning. Saturday was bit of a lazy day spent in front of the TV flicking between the Tennis, Live8 & anything else on that was moderately interesting.   It has been a while since I watched tennis, but the speed & ferocity which the mens game … Continue reading
