Tomorrow is Adam and Joe day!

When this blog returned last month, a reader asked me if the impending return of Adam and Joe to our radio sets was the best thing that has ever happened to me. Well, it’s not quite the best news I have ever heard. But nevertheless, tomorrow is exciting. Adam and Joe return tomorrow morning at […]

How I watch F1 (Hungary 2010 spec)

I will discuss the events of the Hungarian Grand Prix soon. But today I decided to take a photograph of the way I watch F1. It has been a while since I have photographed it. The last time was probably early last year, soon after coverage switched to the BBC. With recent changes to the […]

Two contrasting diets

One of the stories that emerged during the recent Olympic Games was the extraordinary diet of Michael Phelps who won eight Olympic gold medals this year. The swimmer takes in an incredible 12,000 calories per day. Here is his intake for the day: Breakfast Three fried egg sandwiches topped with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions […]

Junk thinking

I saw this on television yesterday but couldn’t find anything about it online — although the video is here. Now Robert Sharp has directed me to a couple of pages on this issue. It seems as though the regulations surrounding advertising junk food are about to be tightened further. Yesterday adverts for junk food were […]

Tasty but inoffensive crisps

Unlike some people, I am not a fat bastard. But for me, a day is not complete without a packet of crisps. Or two. Or three. At work a few months ago I was talking to the representative from Walkers Crisps. He told me that Cheddar Cheese flavour was being discontinued along with Spicy Chilli […]

There are some adverts running at the moment that jar with me a bit. The charity World Vision is advertising for sponsors. Nothing wrong with that of course. And the adverts are hardly going to be works of creative genius either. It’s pretty much what you would expect from that sort of advert. But there […]

My lifestyle choice vindicated by the top story in the news

I have spent most of the day saying, “I told you so!” to my mother. I cannot bloody stand Morrisons. While I’m aware that the cause of the latest chapter of E. Coli O157 Scottish edition has not yet been confirmed as Morrisons, it is not looking too good for them. I had never heard […]

Congratulations to Nestlé

For the Smarties egg. This is brilliant. You get loads of different spin-off mini chocolate eggs these days. Most of them can’t hold a candle to the original Creme Eggs. But the Smarties egg is just brilliant. It’s got a really nice inside that’s a bit like how a Milky Way used to be before […]

INFLUENCE!

Just over a week after I complained about a story on Good Morning Scotland about a service station just outside Glasgow, this morning in exactly the same slot they did a story about something which feels quite local to me (we just need somebody from Aberdeen to complain about its irrelevance now). It was about […]
