Musings on Paris

In Uncategorized by superdrewby3 Comments

My second full day in Paris has been particuarly busy with visits to most of the major museums and tourist attractions.

So far I have been ignored, walked away from, shoved …

I am now in the legendary city of Paris home of The Louvre, Palais de Versailles and so far the rudest service staff I have met in years! But before I talk about Paris I wanted to talk about Oulu. Waiting for my flight to leave for Oulu Airport I looked at the Departures board and it did make me …

It’s been a pretty laid back couple of days up here in Oulu, Northern Finland. It’s such a small area city (about 120,000 people) and the lifestyle is very much different to what I am used to.

Technical Challenges

In Uncategorized by superdrewby1 Comment

My main web host has been upgrading their servers the last couple of days which meant that this and other sites all went down or went ‘wonky’. I really hate it when people or businesses do not provide the service for which you either pay for or are expecting. I am a real stickler for people ‘doing the right thing’, …
