You may find that shopkeepers are predominantly of Asian origin in the UK, I do, and it seems that wherever I go shopkeepers are Asian.
Let me make it quite clear now, I don’t give a flying shit but, state that fact to certain cluster fucks and they will try to stamp you down and call you a racist. By saying shopkeepers are mostly Asian and that in the South of England the same shopkeepers are more pleasant than the shopkeepers in the north, I am a…

Sunday

Some pictures of Baggeridge and Himley, cycled a route around the parks this Sunday. It was freezing. True to form I fell off..... twice.... no pain, just covered in mud. A guy asked if I was Ok, I thought no one had seen me, DOH! Took the pics today for the blog, so I can look back when I'm in the south.
