One does not simply...

​Sean Bean has a lot to answer for.

Family Meeting

​Let's do the usual.  First motion - that we never have these meetings again.  Put forward by...me and seconded by?  Anyone?  No?  Yes?  Come on, just this once, please? No?  No-one?  Ok, motion denied.  We'll continue......more


Train Ride

​I recently went by train to New York to beat the traffic but inadvertently opened myself up to mankind.  I usually like mankind, but mankind on a train is different.  This is mankind that can't open a car door or is refused a Driver's Licence because they are too ugly......more


Interviewing

​Try this one - describe a situation you've had at work or school that made you angry and why did it make you angry?  Yes, er...other than this interview.  Are you feeling angry now?......more


​BarkerBites' musings and collected 'best bits' for the Expat is..."The Wag"

The daunting life of an Expat; feeds 'clipped' for the expat's enjoyment; shameless endorsements - it's all here.  Full of interesting morsels to chew over, like the Sunday roast down at the Ferret and Weasel: steamy, over-cooked and piled high, but surprisingly digestible.  So, take a peak and prove your old Primary School teacher wrong: go ahead - read! (inside your head and without using your finger).

Brake Lights. No, seriously - brake lights.

​In the land of riches and plenty it appears that we've found a bastion of moderation as if the designers in Detroit, with pudgy palms and rounded shoulders raised couldn't possibly.......more


Pharmaceutical Disclaimer

​Pharmaceutical companies - just the phrase alone makes your sphincter clench, but apparently their products can also have the same effect......more


Handkerchiefs - OMG they're perfect!

​Given that Mum did all the clothes washing by hand and tissues were far too frivolous to spend her house-keeping on, I'm guessing there were times that Dad paraded along the beach with a pile of snot on his head......more

Lessons from a hairy man

​He was a dead car moving machine.  He probably didn't even need his tow truck - he could have done it with his bare hands (actually his hands were hairy too - on both sides)......more

Car Trouble

​You've moved abroad, taken the plunge and unless you're as nimble on your feet as Mo Farah you're going to need a car to get around - but be careful what you buy.  I wasn't and my car hates me......more


Office Memos

​The Company advisory memo incorrectly replaced the word "down" with the word "up"...the inhabitants of all six floors were left wondering what the repercussions of not dressing up would be and just how far their office neighbours would go to impress on dress-up Friday......more

A Happy Drunk

​I used to be a six, now I'm a four.  Actually a long time ago I used to be an eight - but that was way back in my college days.  Almost everybody swaggered around back then saying they were a seven or an eight - and I don't mean seven namby pamby ones.......more
