I think this is excellent. It's exactly what so many other things should have been and possibly the answer to a lot of issues.


There's nothing I like more...

...than questionable research that attempts to justify my buying decisions.

Oi Dave! Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back by Easter....

I need say no more. After the debacle of series 8 I hope they get it right this time.

Me and my Web Log (or should that be my Web Log and I)

Hello everyone. It's been a while since I have posted anything here.

I was a little unsure what a blog was so did a little research - ahem, when I say research I don't mean busting out the ladders to the attic in a vein attempt to dig out my Cwmbran Library card. (what a poor excuse for a library)

What I do infact mean is this - I Wiki'd the term 'blog' - description below. Anyway arriving at the point of this little narative - I have no excuse not to write more on 'our' social networking website. I am either sitting infront of or have access to a computer feeding into the www more or less 18 hours a day.

I may have to break with tradition and try and introduce a cunning and relevant way to include some sort of graph into my online commentary of life. 2009 = seeing friends, staying in touch & getting out more. I will be in touch.

My starter for 10. I have a challenge. How far can YOU get...?

A blog (a contraction of the term "Web log") is a Web site, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order.

Stag Do Update


Due to the combined economic and time pressures of having to organise a wedding in 7 weeks, and general unavailability of people to go hillwalking I have decided to change my plans.

I am now planning to visit Snowdon in early April - probably the weekend of the 3rd, all are welcome for a bit of camping and mountains, maybe even some cakes...

If anyone would like to have a few a drinks before the wedding I was thinking of doing something relaxed on the 7th February. Can interested parties please let me know if they would be, well, interested.


Eggwan undergoing maintenance

Bear with my through some theme changes and whatnot over the next few days -- I am doing Stuff to the site.


Posted on Shlock today.

One of the best 16 minutes I have spent. Period

Who is the Stig?

As in the second, and current white suited Stig?

A friend* has recently pointed to this report by the HSE into Hammond's crash.

The report lists one Ben Collins as someone, "who worked closely with Top Gear as a high performance driver and consultant".

I wonder....

Another One Bites the Dust

Oooh, I'm writing a blog!

As you may or may not be aware I'm getting married on Valentines Day and as a precursor will be having a stag do the weekend of the 24th of January, all Eggwanners are welcome at the stag do which will take place at a cottage in the Brecon Beacons and will involve a couple of nights away with walking and beer, possibly together for the adrenalin-junkies among you. Cost is likely to be around £30 per person per night for the cottage (less the more of us there are).

If anyone is interested in sharing one of my last weekends of freedom please reply to this blog post, alternatively you can contact the best man (in the loosest sense of the term), Dave on 07914 839769 or

Over and out.
