That Filling Station Cafe letter  Posted on 04/16/2014
Another photo of an “is this real?” letter, like that Bic one (which wasn’t). This time, allegedly as a reply from a cafe owner to the Lake District National Park. Yes, it’s pretty funny anyway, but if you deliver...

Quota Wheel  Posted on 04/12/2014
Nice meal out at Sevruga on the Waterfront last night. This the view on the way back to the car. The Wheel has now become a permanent and popular attraction at the V&A – almost one of those things that everyone must do on a...
