A big thank you to everyone who reads my blog, everyone who has liked my posts and everyone who comments!
I know I haven’t been too active recently, it seems that funny old thing called life can get in the way sometimes, but I haven’t forgotten about you or about this blog! Hopefully with the nights drawing in and the weather getting worse I should have a little bit more indoor-time to contribute to the blog, time will tell.

 

 

Trump is president

So, it looks like Donald Trump did it, he’s now officially the president of the US.

 

I’m more left-leaning than the typical American and so would have preferred Clinton (although choosing between those two is like choosing which venereal disease is best), but I don’t live in the US so it’s not a massive issue to me.
I don’t really know what he has in store for the US and the rest of the world, but if nothing else it should be ‘interesting’.

Time will tell.

Why I don’t believe Electric Vehicles are the future

I have an unpopular opinion, and that opinion is that electric vehicles (EVs) are not the future and they aren’t as good as people make them out to be.

It is claimed that EVs are better than typical combustion vehicles as they save you money on fuel while being kinder to the environment, both points I find debatable.

Ralph: 12/10/2016

It’s been a while since my last Ralph post so thought I would upload a photo!

He’s been great recently, we travelled down to Devon to see the family and he came with us. He slept quietly through the 5-hour drive on the way down and the way back! Colour me impressed! The time before last he was a pain so I’m glad he’s mellowed out a bit!
