Too Much Time On Your Hands..?

Visitors to this blog may be aware I'm something of a Doctor Who fan. Though it seems at least I can't be described as a fanatic, unlike this person from Queensland Australia, featured in this article from the UK newspaper The Daily Mail.  

OK, so maybe I'm just a little envious LOL.

Mumbai Calling

Don't you just hate those annoying unsolicited sales phone calls that seem to plague our lives?

I mean most days when I get back from the office, there's usually at least one missed overseas call on my home phone. I don't get that many sales calls that originate in the UK since I registered with the Telephone Preference Service but those clever girls and boys in those pesky marketing companies have worked that if they subcontract the work to international subsidiaries or partners, they are not subject to UK law and there's not a thing we can do about it. Grrrr. 

Anyway today- in a rare occurrence- the caller actually left a message. Oddly it went like this (to be said with an Indian accent): "Customer speaking, message leaving... customer speaking, message leaving... customer speaking, message leaving." Click, end of call.

Can anyone care to explain LOL?

A Bit Of House Keeping

As of the end of this month Webshots will in effect be closing. There's been some sort of change in ownership and the new model will be a paid site, with only invited guests able to view images. Needless to say I'm afraid that means my ceramic and other images will shortly disappear.

If in the next few months I find a suitable alternative public home for my pictures, you will be the first to know. Just so you know.

It's not much fun when the cold sea comes over the top of your Wellington boots. Or is it LOL?
