A lobster walks into a bar. The landlord sees him, and shouts above the crowd: "Hey, you. Out. You're barred." The lobster replies: "Eh? Why? What have I done?" The landlord responds: "You come in 'ere, givin' it all that..." This was described to me as the best visual joke ever for radio. It's (more...)

As a discerning TV viewer, I'm a big fan of Game of Thrones. It could have been so different, though. Mrs Simms recorded the first season on series link, but we put off starting watching for weeks thinking that maybe we'd just delete it, and only gave the first episode a try when we were running (more...)

As you'll know, I'm rarely one to get angry. Irritated, yes. Narked, sometimes. Annoyed frequently. But when you're the sole male representative in a household of four (the other three being a former vegetarian and two teenage girls), you learn to let many of those potential flash points simply wash (more...)

I was rudely awakened in the small hours of this morning by the persistent 'peep' of a smoke alarm. Not one of those terrifying 'get out of the house, NOW' moments I'm happy to report, with an alarm shrilly sounding its warning and alerting me to fire. No, this was a single 'peep' at random (more...)

In what I'm going to describe as a guerilla information systems swoop, I sneaked into the office over the Christmas break and installed a new telecoms suite. I use the term telecoms suite rather than just telephone, because my new system does so much more than the old telephone. Not only does it (more...)

Probably like many, I vaguely remember the launch of the Rosetta mission some ten years ago with its goal to land a probe on a comet.

In the last couple of years at the cinema, I've seen remakes of Total Recall, Godzilla, Carrie and The Day The Earth Stood Still, not to mention reboots of Spiderman and Superman - all of which I'd argue were totally unnecessary. Now they've brought the remake syndrome to (more...)
