Hi-vis horse?

BoldBelvoir Observation 1 Comment

Well, I know I was drunk at the time, but I did see a police horse wearing a yellow dayglow vest in town last night, even if nobody else saw it. Which just goes to prove the point in my previous post about everybody and his dog wearing them nowadays. And just to prove a point, here’s the dog. Now, …

Another observation about television land. Have you noticed, almost without exception, every time a computer screen is featured in a film or drama, it bleeps and whistles like R2D2 on friggin’ acid? Query: Bleeeeeeeeep blip blip blip dooooooooop! Zoom in: dit dit dit dit dit bweeeeeeeeb! Locked on target: Bloooop bloooop bloooop! Gimme a friggin’ break! Computers don’t do that. …

Well, I must have been a happy bunny for the last few weeks, as I haven’t posted for a while. But today was a dark, dark day for me. Note the date: 26th August. Today I heard the first mention of a new series of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. It was on the Breakfast news this morning, although quite what it …

I’m out of work at the moment and every time the little lady walks out the door on her way to work I must admit that I do feel little pangs of guilt (now and then). So, yesterday I decided I’d better do my bit and make an effort to help around the house. I’d do the vacuuming and dusting. …

Now here’s one that’s been bugging me for years. Perhaps someone out there knows the answer. If so PLEEEEASE post a comment!

There has been a recent report by scientists about the alarming drop in the number of the bee population. The reason for the demise of bee colonies, they say, is unexplained.

What’s happened to fruit?

BoldBelvoir Observation Leave a Comment

I was walking past the market yesterday and was enticed by all the lovely displays of fruit. Now, I don’t buy much fruit any more because it’s generally shit. But this looked so good, I succumbed to the appetising display of colours – reds and yellows and pinks and greens, orange and purples and blues – thank you Cilla. I …
