A day at Wicksteed Park!

Wicksteed park isn't your usual "Theme Park". It's not got the fast rides that you might find at other places in the UK, but for me Wicksteed holds a very special place in our family history. With my grandmother growing up in the town of Kettering, Wicksteed was very much part of her childhood. As I grew up in Cambridge, Kettering wasn't a million miles away for the school holidays. Thus when my cousins used to come to stay we got bundled into the back of the car and taken to Wicksteed for a day out with my Grandparents. Wicksteed Park was founded by Charles Wicksteed. He set up Charles Wicksteed & Co. Ltd in 1876, which produced items such as…

Indy 500 Race Day 2019

So I've dreamt from an early age about going to the Indianapolis 500.

It was 1994 and I was 14, my Mother thought that was the place to get suit's from. Ever since that day I've never bought a suit from the place again. It's just that M and S are just, well you know, yes that. You can't really sum them up as a luxury designer brand. It's that sort of thing like the Ronseal add. It does what it say's on the tin. This was my same view about the Volkswagen Golf. Volkswagen's famous 1987 advert of the woman leaving her husband with the tag line…

Review of Bulldog Skincare for Men

Since the turn of 2017 I've made the promise to try and take more care of myself. It's not easy on the road all the time to stay in good shape or try not to look tired and worn out all the time. I've also been trying to make sure that I look after my skin as well as part of this deal. I spend a lot of time in dark, and sometimes dirty airless places and that can have a knock on to how my skin looks. This is where Bulldog skin care comes in. I have tried and tested a number of the more prominent "brands" of skin care in my time, but never felt that they carried…

Ford Ka+ Test Drive

The Ford Ka+ is the new Supermini from Ford. Although the original Ka was launchd back in the mid 90’s the market segment has moved on a long way from the small 3 door models that rivalled supermarket trollies. Not only as customers have we come to expect better standards of quality in our motorcars, but as the cars have been getting bigger so has the market with more players from the likes of Kia, Hyundai and even the Dacia’s of this world coming in with commendable contenders. Read my thoughts below on my recent Ford Ka+ test drive.
