Why is my running blog all about wine and animals?

I wonder if you can help me?  I have come to a realisation that my running blog features much animal madness and wine yet little running.  So, today, because I haven’t been running for a whole week, and therefore have no running anecdotes to offer, it seems I have a burning desire to turn my attention to […]

Beware Paypal – the evil lovechild of Wine and the Devil

There is a hidden lurking danger out there.  You need to be aware.  Paypal is a threat and I am writing this to protect you. I don’t want you to suffer in the same way as I have. Last weekend, I had dinner with a glass of wine (OK, possibly two or three)* and it transpires, […]
