Run Run Run

You'll know I've never ran far in my life, but recently now on a fitness drive and gradually increasing the running.. In fact this is run was pretty good.. I'm (trying) to do the half Robin Hood Marathon in September. Not only will the training get me fit but we can raise some more money for Childrens Brain Tumour Research too -

Two Brands Better than One?

I just found this site from a google, looking for a courier for something. Decent enough site. Turns out when I get to the end its actually Royal Mail / Parcel Force directly. Cool. Good prices and no middle man.

Similarly, did you know is acutally Jessops in disguise? They'll not let on, only a search throughs them up as the same address. Amazing difference in prices between high street, and They are more than happy to take your money mind with the high street option!

Remember those Telephone Dishes

I just remembered about the great telephone system where you got a small dish on the side of your house and 2 telephone lines for alot less money that BT... Took me a while to remember the name of the service but it was Ionica. "Our revolutionary telephone system uses digital radiowaves"... They ran out of money and closed down years ago.

Their website is long gone, but the waybackmachine had a cached copy...
