Heavy Traffic!

I am now back at work and my feet are firmly on the ground, I've just been to see my beloved football team Southampton play awfully against Leicester City and lose 2-0! Normal service has resumed.
One thing that strikes you when you come home from a wonderful holiday in New Zealand, is just how crowded the UK is,driving to and from work in Southampton is mad! So much traffic and everyone is trying to get there yesterday! 'Slow down people'! We only get one life, so perhaps we should all take a look at it and try to realise that we all need to slow down a little and take in whats around us.
Remember, your a long time dead!

Take a look at my website at  and find out about New Zealand

 Well I've just arrived back after a month in New Zealand, wow! what a place!  One thing that kept me in touch with my roots was the CD 'Star Tiger, Star Ariel' by Southampton Band Delays'. If you want to listen to an amazing CD then you won't go wrong with this one.
Over the years much of there music has been used as backing for TV Documentaries and currently the track 'Hold Fire' is being used on MasterChef. But the band is much better than that, they are easily the finest band in Southampton if not in the UK, do yourself a favour and listen to this CD!
