I have to say, I am gradually seeing the appeal of Harry’s Harley. No performance anxiety, no need to try to ride fast – just sit back and soak up the scenery, chugging along and waving at people. Though I have to say, I don’t normally get many waves from Harley riders – why is [Read full post…]
Maybe if I’m becoming an old fart, I should chop the SM-T in for something more old-fart appropriate. What should that be?

We thought he’d recovered, but he’d [Read full post…]
I’ve just been looking at the price of the Stena Ferry to Ireland. It’s way more reasonable than I’d expected. I wonder if I can fit in some time off and whisk The Fair Lady Scully over there for a short break, before I go to Spain with the boys? After all, I’m sure she [Read full post…]
