  • Had a beer last night and asked my pal at breakfast if he had any paracetamol. He said he had Nurofen, but I can’t take those as get a reaction to ibroprufen. My phone is charging back in the room.

    after breakfast go back to the room, later on I pick up my phone and look at Facebook. First thing on my timeline is an advert for Nurofen. 
    Alexa/Siri is always listening (has to in case its name is called). 
    It sits on the wifi network, probably has your phone on the same network. 
    2 + 2 =  3.9999

    George Orwell looking very smug behind the pearly gates I reckon.

    That's no coincidence ;)



    I'm only half joking here. I'm not a big believer in conspiracy theories, because most of them are total junk spread by nutters, but I've more than half a belief that the devices we use every day are regularly used by others for more than we might like them to be. My son told me a story about a mate of his who made a personal fortune because he won some sort of marketing contract with Gym Shark. I'd never heard of this company before, and frankly I have zero interest in them. Within hours of him telling me I was getting bombarded with ads for them. 

  • Said on here before about a Messenger voice call I had with someone about a new chain for one of my chainsaws. Had chainsaw chain ads and sharpening tool ads coming up more or less straight away on the Facebook news feed

    Actually, just realised you must be right. I had my Garmin watch on which I suppose is connected to my phone. So no coincidence at all, just another example of how f***ed up our ties to technology are and the impact it can have on our lives.

    Yup - That's the long and the short of it.
  • Was playing The Wheel board game last week with my son. He’s 11, autistic and doesn’t know any of the answers to the questions. But he loves spinning the wheel so that’s what we do. 

    Game was going on forever so I made the decision I was going to start pretending to read the question cards but make up the question in my head that I knew he’d know the answer to. 

    Decide the next question I was going to ask ‘who sang Uptown Funk’ as I know that would be the only music question he’d know the answer to. I turn the card over and the question on the card  was ‘who had a hit single with the song Uptown Funk’. 

    Literally fell off my chair. Honestly couldn’t believe it. 


    Superb … love it

  • Sadly my uncle died this week. Today I emailed the funeral director to give him the address for the wake. It's out in the sticks, so I thought I'd use what3words. To check, I tried putting the three words into Google Maps, but I didn't use the proper link, just the three words on their own. Unsurprisingly, Google wasn't up to managing my incompetent request and instead searched for a business using the last of the three words, which happened to be 'pythons'. It returned a pet shop which just happens to be on the same street that my uncle grew up on. This is 15 miles away from me and nearly 300 miles away from my uncle's wake.
