Park to the Future

In the future, there will be fewer vehicles on the roads. That, combined with the fact that many of those vehicles will be non-privately owned self-driving pods, means the need for car parks as we know it will decline. Those are my projections, anyway. If I’m right about this, then the question should eventually arise …

Second Hand Car

I’m buying a second hand car that is still under its new car warranty. The people I’m buying it from are elderly and can no longer drive, so I’m purchasing it for an absolute bargain. Honestly the price is so cheap that when I drive it away, I’ll probably feel like I stole it. I …

A Chef’s Opinion

Being a professional chef for the last twenty years, has made me very critical of the quality of the food I serve and the food that gets served to me. It’s in my nature. Anyone who is somewhat good at their profession would be hyper aware of their work and the work of their competitors. …

Dean Pad Deluxe

Finally, my time has come: I’m getting a private office. This is what I’ve been working for all these years. Forget the professional accolades, the awards and the personal satisfaction of achievement – it’s all about finally being able to dictate the finer points of my workspace. Now it’s simply a matter of figuring out …
