We race on the Saturday (ranked last, probably will come last !) but that leaves Sunday free to look round the show.

As we do the racing as part of the attractions camping and entry is a fiver for the family... result !

If Pandora is too much trouble to connect too then Last.Fm is an okay second choice...

Soon to be made available on the xbox 360 !...

Have a click on the below to have a listen !

How did we ever cope before !

Eggs !

Big chunk !

I lost a chunk of tooth from the back of my mouth a little while ago.

I finally got to see an NHS dentist today who ended up spending an hour drilling out all the gunk, removing the nerve then filling the huge hole after.

£46.50 ... I can't imagine how much that would have cost private !.

I can now drink cold drinks again without going "ouch" !.

Beta Testing !

Yay !... I have finally got into a beta test programme ! ... for, of all things, satnav on my mobile phone !.

My phone comes with GPS built in to geo tag photos ... this can also be used for satnav / location services, and although I have Navman and AmaZe installed neither work to be of any use (at all !).

In fact even as a geo tagging device its pretty rubbish, its no iPhone !.

So, I am testing a product supplied by they currently make satnav for blackberry devices, but are now trying more "basic" mobile phones.

So far I can say it actually works with my phone !.... it stopped working on the way to Blockbuster.. but on the way home it was fine...

I'll let you know if its worth the money soon (well, it is for me, I get it free as a tester !).

£900 ! Are people mad ! are now selling the new iPhone 3GS for £900...

£900 ! what ! for a phone ! ...

I can buy a 32" 1080p HD LCDTV for £399
Slap a Acer Revo PC on the back for £170

Have a holiday ... {The Gambia Experience has just slashed a massive £307 OFF a seven-night 4-star holiday to The Gambia, so you'll now pay just £299 per person, including flights!}

And still have £30 spare for a curry and beer for that price !...

Thats 4 reasons why I will never buy an iPhone !
