What I Hate About The Victoria Plumb Adverts

I am sure many of you have seen the series of Victoria Plumb adverts over the last few months. Well to be quite honest they bug the living crap out of me, for many reasons! But there is a running theme with them. This is the first one... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytyNlzsu7tw Yes, the advert is rather cheesy, [...]

Transport Costs

Very little to do with double glazing this one but I think this is a post we will all have an opinion on! The cost of transport is rising way beyond what can be called normal and reasonable. A good friend of mine was looking to come up from London to talk about business and [...]

>The Media Are Not Helping

>Fuel Prices On The Rise Again

>The start of the week saw Scottish Power announce that it was raising it's gas prices by a staggering 19% and electricity by a further 10% by August this year. It begs the question; why are we paying so much for gas when there is so much of it around? It's not in the same [...]

>Strange Time Of Year

>We are about to enter a part of the year like no other. The Easter Bank Holidays.Easter is the only time of year where the working weeks become so disorganised and skewed for everybody involved.

>Over £10 Billion To Repair Potholes

>This is a real pet hate of mine, as it probably is with all road users, but pot holes really are a pain in the backside!The problem is that to repair the 2.2million+ potholes around the country, it's going to cost £10.7 billion! Money that our councils have said they simply don't have.The potholes have [...]

>Blazing A New Trail

>Have you ever sat down in contemplation, looked at your life where you are right now, and thought: I think I need a fresh start somewhere else?That's where I am right now.
