Lack of Updates!?

Alright, so the sudden flurry of posts at the start of the month soon died out! Lol!

But why the sudden activity, and then nothing?

I was going to try and start posting more often, not long posts, just short ones, little snippets of information and short stories about nothing in particular.

Well, I had two in mind, but as always, I just never got around to it! Lol!

Not much has happened, the only two things that I can think of is that my girlfriends oldest brother became a dad, they called him Liam and he was born on the 6th of August.

The other is that I have started working on a new site style, and seeing as I have a week off I haven’t touched it! Lol!

It’s in the same style as the current style, but I’m going to rearrange where the sub menu’s appear, and the layout of posts and comments. This will mainly affect the blog side of my site, but I might bring some of the changes into other areas of my site.

New Phone!!!

I’ve got a new phone! It’s not the best or the latest, but it doesn’t need to be, I only text and make the occasional call.

It’s got bluetooth, FM radio, music player and a camera, four more things than my last one did! Lol!

It’s the Samsung E250, it is a slide action phone with a nice big clear screen on it, at least bigger than my old one! Lol!

But I’m not to sure about the keypad, it’s recessed inside the phone and is hidden when the phone is closed. This makes the keypad small, especially for typing texts!

It’s still new, so I’m still getting use to it!

Speed Camera’s

The other day when I saw a car drive straight through the red light on a pedestrian crossing, I had a brain wave!

Why not put speed camera’s on every traffic light, and pedestrian controlled light’s!?

My reasoning is thus:

  1. They will prevent more accidents occurring from drivers jumping red lights.
  2. They well cause less accidents from drivers suddenly slowing down when they spot a speed camera.
  3. They might probably generate more money!

Of course, with the numbers needed to cover every traffic light the money generated would be less per camera than it currently is.

Yes, this is the crazy kind of thoughts that run through my head!

Failed MOT!

My car went in for its MOT in Monday, and failed!

It failed on two things:

  1. The offside constant velocity joint gaiter is split
  2. And the nearside MacPherson strut has excessive movement

There was also an advisory saying that the offside MacPherson strut has slight movement.

Luckily she passed the emissions!

I’ve now got 10 days to get the faults fixed and take the car back in for a free retest.

Kung Fu Panda

* * * Spoiler Alert! * * *

We managed to get to the cinema in time at 20:25, but the queues were long and we thought we would miss the beginning!

Luckily when we got the front of the queue the film hadn’t started, even though it was 20 minutes after the advertised start time!

Most of the people there was to see Mamma Mia, the previous viewing sold out, so some of them had come back. When we got to the front one of the staff came out and said that that viewing of Mamma Mia was now sold out!

Back to Kung Fu Panda…

You know those old Kung Fu films? With those seemingly impossible moves?
Yeah? Well this film has loads of them although animated though!

The story is about a lazy panda, named Po, that accidentally becomes the chosen “Dragon Warrior”. Despite having no real life experience of Kung Fu, Master Shifu must find a way to train Po and make him a Kung Fu Master

He must then fight Tai Lung, a snow leopard.

I’ve read reviews about Kung Fu Panda, saying that with the big names doing the voices in the film, we don’t get to see (hear?) them often. For example, Jackie Chan is the voice of Monkey, but I don’t remember ever hearing Monkey speak!

It’s a funny film, great for kids, but also for the adults.
