CHUCK THE DISC....

Today in The UK, saw the start of something new in the motoring industry.. The Tax disc which has been stuck on our vehicle windscreens & motor bike frames for years, will be forever gone from the bottom left hand corner.. I for one will not miss trying to tear around those damn perforations of the disc, well I didn't anyway as I always gave it to 'Er Indoors' to do as she has the patience to do such tasks see mun!
Anyway, apparently the Folks of The UK tried to use the brand spanking new system of renewing car tax today but the DVLA website wouldn't play along.. OOppppppsssssss

IRRITATING LITTLE......

OK, just a small rant while I'm 'trying to go to sleep' in my hotel room here in warrington at 23:40hrs..
What is it with you knob-heads(meaning both sexes!) who like to make it clear they've just got back into the hotel room....
Eh, the rest of us are trying to go to sleep but hey, feel free to wake the whole damn county up by slamming ya bloody room doors shut!!!!
There, Goodnight...

RUGBY MUSINGS..

Long Live The Legend..

ON THE ROAD..

Well landed in Warrington last night about 2000hrs after a 4 hour drive on the M50, M5 & M6.. Bloody hell, what a journey from traffic queues due to average speed cameras which seem to go on forever, to the usual suspects(not all driving BMW's) cutting up others etc etc..
BUT I did have to stay home and wait until Mr Donald from Wales Won The Ryder Cup mindew..

Anyway, the Holiday Inn is where I'm spending my life until Thursday evening, well actually, hotel-training centre-hotel.. Hello Warrington!
First day a mind numbing day long course concerning all things legal about all things legal to do with the course I am undertaking(Can't reveal what it is due to the nature of the work) which ended at 1700hrs with an assessment examination.. Glad to say I passed with just one point under the full 100%... Ah well eh..
Now there's only another 3 days to go before another & final assessment examination on Thursday and then I can head on back down the long & winding roads to the Green Green Grass Of HOME! 
Oh and just a thought in my head but..
Do you Idiots who go speeding past on a motorway, actually know what an AVERAGE SPEED CAMERA does..... The Clue is in the title of what it is.... DUH

PHOTO COVERAGE..

If you have an event or if you are in a music/drama group or a company that requires a photo-shoot, then get in touch with NCR Photography Folks..

I can also be followed on Twitter & on Facebook..

VALLEYS FACE ..... PRESENTS


SAD TIMES BUT...

This week I will be in Warrington until Thursday and then I will be covering at the Shared Service Centre for my ol' Colleague & Friend Tony Boswell who is on holiday... 
For purposes which I cannot reveal on here, it will be the very last time that I will be at the SSC Ever! (Not for anything I have done too, I think !)
It'll be sad on the Friday when I will be leaving, as over the nearly 5 years that I have been at the SSC in some form, I have made lots of Friends and have learned a hell of a lot about the ways & workings of government business and the facilities industry... What I have learnt, I have already taken it into my current workings and hopefully I can take 'things' into the future, wherever that may take me...
I'll be saying my Farewells to those of you who I have come close to and to those of you who have just arrived and I'll be paying the odd visit, if I'm allowed to by the management...
Will Definitely miss my Partner LAWRENCE ANTHONY BOSWELL though.. Those of you from the Newport area, may know him well, as he's an ex Councillor, who is responsible for Newport becoming a City?! 
I Wish You All at the SSC The Very Best For The Future WhatEver That May Be...
See you all in a weeks time Folks...

SPECS APPEAL...

Visited the good folks at Specsavers in Ebbw Vale this afternoon after having made an appointment(last visited in 2007!) to let the pros take a peek at the ol' blue eyes.. Head aches 'n' the occasional blurry vision has been making an appearance and so me thought to get it sorted!
Not disastrous news, as I just need specs for reading, so it's good news in that my photography won't be effected! Picking them up from the store next Saturday morning then.. 
On my 49th Birthday! 
Ah well.... 

FINAL DAY OF FESTIVAL....

Tomorrow is the Final Day of 
The 2014 BNIB Brynmawr Festival folks.. 
Pop along to the Town & especially the park which is along Warwick Road by the Brynmawr Bowls Club.. 
There'll be stalls and entertainment for all the family..

HOWZATT... TOO HIGH

Well Done to the lads who decided to take the game of cricket to a whole new level.. Literally, as they played on Mount Kilimanjaro.. Apparently they had issues with breathing and the match had to be abandoned due to cloud cover! Bit like playing in certain parts of the UK then...
click here to go to the story on the BBC website Folks..

SHUT UP, UP & AWAY....

So it has been decided then that the airlines of the World have agreed to let people use their cellphones on flights...
For goodness sake mun, the last thing we need when on a plane, looking forward to a holiday or going to work, is someone blurting out at the top of their voice(cause that's what lots of people do, instead of talking normally, they seem to want to let everyone know what they are talking about & who too!) or having to sit next to some pathetic twat who is on shitebook, telling everyone(well those who actually give a ****!) what, when, where & why they are doing 24/7..... How about they sit them somewhere where they are with other sad pathetic twats who feel the need to do the same thing.. Or even, only have a plane for those who want to do that....

THE MIGHTY WHITES..

Good Luck to The Lads tomorrow as LEEDS UNITED travel to Brentford, kicking off at 1500hrs.. It's the first game for our new Coach(not manager-going down the European route!) Darko Milanic so maybe, just maybe we can keep this winning streak going...
