Quotes From Newsfeeds Saturday 1 April 2016

Tony May

Thinking about Ronnie Corbett I think his legacy could teach a lot of people today a thing or two about how to live their lives. Ronnie was never one to take offence when someone made fun of his height, indeed he often would go as far as to instigate a joke at his own expense. How gloriously liberating it must have been Continue reading Quotes From Newsfeeds Saturday 1 April 2016

The Simple Things In Life Are Best

By Tony May

Having been left some money by my Nan and with plenty of operational and space problems to deal with on my existing machine, I took the plunge recently and invested in a new laptop. Now, I am as technophobic as they come and so, on the advice of friends, have always stuck to Mac computers.

Imagine If You Will A Local Hovercraft Service

By Tony May

Pictures By Andrew Popkin

The sound of the sea lapping gently at the shore, a warm, sunny day in Hastings, blue skies overhead and the piercing cry of seagulls invading your senses. Camera in one hand, sunglasses in the other and with arms outstretched for balance you are creeping gingerly across the pebbles on the beach at St leonards towards a Hovercraft ‘parked’ on the sand near the waters edge… Continue reading Imagine If You Will A Local Hovercraft Service

Remembering Woolies

BY TONY MAY

The recent news that long-established Electrical Retailers, ‘Comet’ are to go into administration has had quite an effect on me. Always one to spend a fair amount of my time thinking of the past anyway, to see again the same tragic circumstances occurring, which, five years ago (yes, it has been that long already!) led to the closure of the beloved ‘Woolworths’ chain has made me very sad indeed.
