The Adventures of Trevor and his Disappearing Man-Boobs (Part 2) How a dog food ad changed everything..
Trevor is my mate and he's struggling with excess body fat in the thoracic cavity. There is a medical name for this condition: Man-boobs. He's tried eating less and moving more - what his doctor said - but to no avail. Both strategies have resulted in an end-game of...read more
Every January I inevitably get a 'Oh-Shite' call. The pre-requisites for an 'Oh-Site' call is that it usually comes from someone in my circle of mid-50 year old mates; they've looked a bit too long in their mirror and there's a new years resolution begging... Phone...read more

I've just come back from the doctor after a 7 minute consultation regarding my annual blood test. I'm so mad I feel like punching the living crap out of my son's comfort cushion, Kevin (yes he has a name for it!). Why am I mad? Because I feel ripped off, short changed...read more
I'm not a huge fan of alcohol. Anyone reading my blogs for some time will already know this. Do I enjoy a dinner of steak and beer after a full day mowing the lawn in the height of summer? You better believe it. Can I sit in a beer garden with a bunch of mates and...read more
