    Being 65 is cool!

    I was sent this today by another oldie mate from the Colonies. I thought it worth sharing. I am over 65 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ***-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds...

    I'm not sure if this is available anywhere on British TV, but I've downloaded and watched the first six episodes of the new A&E series, Steven Seagal: Lawman. The show follows Seagal on his beat as a deputy sheriff in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, a beat he has walked for 20 years now. We see...

    Pandora Radio

    Does anyone listen to Pandora Radio which plays songs based on what it predicts you will like? I use it at work (note you will need to use a proxy if you haven't got a US based IP address - google for instructions) and it predicts some pretty good stuff with only the occasional horror show (REO...

    Has anyone seen them live before? I went to see them last night at the o2 arena and I have to say they put on an amazing show. Great live music, great performers and the stage display was out of this world. Snow Patrol have never been one of my favourite bands but that gig blew me away how...

    The 'Stan

    First of all, I'm writing this from my perspective of the last six months, I'm no hero, but plenty of my collegues are. Hopefully no one will think I'm writing this is order to show off, or to earn rep. Indeed, please don't rep me for this at all. I realise I'm probably not the only serviceman...

    Anyone who is currently serving and has served in the past should be able to identify with many of these certain 'traits'; sadly I do! You know you've been Defence institutionalised (made military) when... You use target indication to point out hot chicks. You use the term 'chicks' You...
