My car insurance is up for renewal next month and while I’m happy with my current provider, a new company called Blue Insurance, has been a bit of a talking point recently. I first heard of them when I heard one of their representatives on the radio. They sounded like a forward thinking company that
“And how long have you been working here?” was the comment from smart alec Tony in work :-D Touché Yes, that IS my day job but this domain was one from my personal inventory. I’ve always liked domains. I’ve regularly bought them but rarely sold any of my own. Actually, I’ve NEVER sold one
We keep hearing that the problem with .com is that all the “good”, aka short, names are gone. In a marketplace that has limited “stock”, being the holder of such domains is great. But does this apply to the new gTLDS ? Yes, having coupon.codes or golf.clubs in your portfolio would be great but is
This morning I posted a photo on Twitter of a lego minifig, attached to my desk’s sideboard using Sugru. It’s something that I saw recently, and just copied :-D The reason for this post isn’t so much to rave about the 2 products, which i really like, but more to do with the ripple effect that one tweet can have.

Series 11 is out and about and I’ve been collecting the odd minifig :-) Carrying on from my series 10 posts, I’ll be creating posts on the dot codes for each minifigs at regular intervals. To make things even easier, I’ll post links to each individual minifg post below. The Scarecrow
Lego Series 10 Tomahawk warrior The lego Series 10 dot codes Tomahawk warrior is pretty cool. Apart form the expected paintwork, he has 2 nice features. The obvious one is the tomahawk, which is made of hard plastic but the blade part is actually a softer rubber. The other is his mohawk, which is
The lego series 10 baseball guy is, well, a baseball guy :-) He has a cap and his mitt and that’s pretty much it. Together with the motorcycle mechanic, he’s probably one of the mifigs I like the least. The baseball mitt is quite cool but other than that, he’s not super impressive, BUT
The lego series 10 motorcycle mechanic is pretty much to stereotype :-) From the moustache, red bandana and tattoo, to the jeans, chains and patch, it’s all there.
