    Most of this blog has a design bias but in this section there are thoughts, ideas and stuff that is related specifically to graphic design.
  • ...and you can eat and drink what you like!
    The moment I see a jogger smiling, I'll considerate it.

    Joan Rivers

    That's what I used to think but at the age of 46 my wife convinced me that running would be good for me. 4 months later I was running the New York Marathon. 
  • Do vegetarians eat Animal Crackers?
    As a young boy I remember everyone in our house could cook. My Mum always baked cakes and biscuits on Mondays and Cheese and Onion Pie on Fridays and my Dad always cooked Christmas Dinner. I grew up on Sheep's Head Broth, Cow Heel Pie, Lancashire Hotpot and Bury Market Black Puddings eaten on the hoof, hot from a boiling cauldron, slathered with English Mustard and a generous sprinkle of salt.

  • Words by people who's actions inspire me.
    An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.

  • Have you heard the one about...
    Humour is a funny thing. I miss the days when in the pub, a mate would say "Have you heard the one about..." Email is the new pub. Here you'll find things that made me chuckle. Some from emails, some from real-life.
  • It's all a matter of taste
    You've either got or you haven't got style. If you got it, you stand out a mile. A flower's not a flower if it's wilted, A hat's not a hat till it's tilted. You either got or you haven't got class. How it draws the applause of the masses.
