The Controversial Quiz

Who’d have thought that running a quiz would be so eventful? I’ve been running quizzes for more years than I can remember. From only 1 player in a local pub to crowds of over a hundred. Pubs, clubs, wooden sheds and  coach trips. One or two charity quizzes but mainly just fun nights for a few beers. This time around I wanted to do something … Continue reading The Controversial Quiz

Cinram World Cup

I’m not much of a sportsman. Being a bit fat and blind in my left eye doesn’t help. But I do try! When I worked at Cinram we had a couple of football trips to France. The first trip coincided with the world cup in 1998. Training sessions were arranged and I managed to avoid all of them. I talked a good game mind you … Continue reading Cinram World Cup

Walton Colts were the side the good players played for. I was 5th or 6th choice for the Hawks. One Saturday I was told I was in the side. There must have been an outbreak of … Continue reading My Sporting Achievements

World Record Holder?

I once was a world record holder. Yes you read it right. Me who has never set the world alight was the best in the world at something. I bet you’re guessing what feat I excelled at and many of you will assume it’s an eating world record. Most pies in 3 minutes or baked beans with a cocktail stick. You’d all be wrong. I … Continue reading World Record Holder?
