Travel tip: pack the nocs.

I remember travelling as a kid and watching with envy if I noticed any adults around me carried a set of binoculars. Black or army surplus green chipped metal. Often carried in rigid leather shoulder satchels. It seemed a far more common occurrence than is generally seen today. These days, it’s all about the photograph. […]

Simple iPad wall mount for your campervan.

At the end of full travel day Kelly, Juno and I quite enjoy settling down for a little bedtime Netflix. You know….in bed. We could simply play a movie through Ripley’s TV but it is situated way up front, a little too far away to watch comfortably from the boudoir. Until now we have been […]

I have continued to use Instagram (which is owned by Facebook) and […]

But personal grooming narcissism has a cost. Recently Kelly and I have been taking inventory of all our plastic waste generation in an […]

The hidden iPhone app you don’t even know you need.

Perhaps you already know about this, but I just found out about a hidden setting on the iPhone that is super useful. The setting is called Magnifier. It turns the iPhone camera into a pretty nifty magnifying glass. To turn it on do this: Goto Settings. Goto General Goto Accessibility (on iOS 13 I believe […]

How to fold your stuff.

One of my jobs today was to bring in the washing. Simple. Since retiring I have totally rebelled against unnecessary ironing (which I hate). So I like to get my T-shirts fresh off the washing line and fold & stack them neatly. In my opinion, this leaves them totally un-crumpled enough for wearing proudly without […]
