Route 66 Illinois (Part 1)

Route 66 Illinois and the city of Chicago is the official start to the route. Not only is the "official" start sign it's also the state I think with the most things to do. From the city of Chicago that we loved, through to places like Pontiac (yes the home of Pontiac), the State capitol of Springfield, Joliet and Wilmington. If you are doing the more traditional route of East to West (like we started our journey). You'll get the sense of the whole trip starting and the enjoyment that's to come. There is so much history on this part of the route, you'll struggle at times to know when to stop and start! Because there is SO much in…

What cars are in my dream garage for less than £10k

So I wrote a post about a month ago about what cars would be in my dream garage. You can read that post here. I had a number of people message me and say that I should do a post on my dream garage but with a upper price limit of only £10,000. Whilst these perhaps might not be the dream dream garage cars it's also perhaps more realistic and achievable garage. In pulling this list together I've found cars on Auto Trader website up to the value of £10,000. I fully understand that this is time sensitive and you are perhaps reading this and you wouldn't be able to find the same sort of car for the same price…

Lay-Z-Spa Rio Hot Tub Review

When the start of Covid/Corona virus started to become apparent that we could be facing a long time in "shut down" we started to make plans about what we might want to get us through the next few months. In came some bikes as part of the social distancing measures, along with a PS4 for me. My other half for months had badgered me that we should get a hot tub for home. I made the excuse that I didn't want to get one whilst we lived in rented home as it would be difficult to move. That was until we saw the Lay-Z-Spa Rio Hot Tub at a local super market. Now this had been the hit of last…

Chastise (The Dambusters raid) – Max Hastings Book Review

A fantastic book on the famous 1943 Dambusters raid. As someone who knows this amazing war event based on the film. This book goes a long way to give that film a more rounded view. The view of the film is that it was skill and the best pilots that got them through the raid but in fact it was much more a case of luck that gave them the success they had. The film dictates that Guy Gibson (who was the Squadron Leader of 617 - the Squadron better known as the Dambusters) selected the crews for the mission drawing on the best pilots that the RAF had to offer - but this book goes a long way to…

Watermans Grow Me

As I've been getting older I've been more conscious about trying to look after myself more. This comes both in the way of diet, personal trainer and fitness, and also things like my skin care with the use of Bulldog products. More recently I've now moved to using Watermans Grow Me Shampoo and Conditioner as well. In my late 30's I had started to notice that my hair had both started to thin and also recced. I really had no fuss about turning grey that didn't bother me - but I know that I didn't want to go bald! It's probably not something that I could control I thought (bar expensive surgery) - but I was determined to see what…
