This is important as leaving any later will cut into valuable drinking time. So she phones me tonight and says she's just booked...

    Parent Text App: How to text your children...

    I'm intrigued by this for a variety of reasons... I don't have children, but spend all day every day communicating with young people. Texting is a powerful force and so often communication takes place between parents and their children in this way. Indeed, even at 27 often I will text my own...

    Convert a mate to SUFC

    I am really quite pleased with myself that I have converted a mate from a 'Gooner' to a Southend fan. Now this has taken a lot of patience and guile, but it can be done.

    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...

  17. You're Hired, You're Fired

    Quite apart from the fact that my credit rating is lower than Montserrat's position in the FIFA rankings, I wouldn't want a mastercard due to my utter contempt for their current advertising campaign. Kids want PS3s, Prada phones, £300 plimsolls, so parents work their arses off and take on a...
