Golf’s my new hobby
Welcome back everybody, this is Miles again. I’m here for my next instalment. Read more
It’s good to have a hobby
Recently I had a bit of a realization, I don’t really have any hobbies. A lot of people will pick up their new favourite book when they’re at a bit of a loose end or have a bit of free time on their hands. I’ve never really been a reader so this isn’t something I’d choose to do. I do like to watch the latest TV series if there’s one that particularly takes my fancy and I’m always keeping up to date with the latest movies coming out at the Cinema. I’m not sure you can really call those hobbies and they’re not exactly the most active of pastimes. I’ve got so many friends and family members who seem to have at least one kind of hobby that is a little bit more interesting than being glued in front of a TV. My Uncle builds model trains, my friend goes fishing up North most weekends, my nan likes to knit and my brother plays football. Read more
Hi folks. I’m back with another blog post. Again it’s going to be about a retro toy that is still mega popular today. Everyone I know must have had a go, and probably failed! It is of course the Rubik’s Cube. I was quite surprised to find out it was only released in the mid 70s, I thought it was much older than that. Anyway, it is still very popular nearly 40 years after release and is on of the most popular toys/puzzles in the world.
Segway’s continue to separate opinion, with them being seen as a “marmite” brand; you either love them or hate them. They have definitely become more popular, but will they ever reach truly global status? Already they are used in a lot of airports in the world, particularly in Asia and seem to do a good job of transporting people around very busy places, at speed if necessary. They are also used in theme parks in America, with some towns in the USA offering “Segway Tours”. Will we ever see them dominating towns and cities though? Only time will tell I suppose. They are marketed (and rightly so) as a green and zero-emission form of transport, which is obviously very good for the environment. They are also quoted as being able to reach a speed of over 12mph.
Miles here guys. It’s a sunny but cold day so I’m indoors with my son and a lot of Lego! He’s nodded off so I’m now sat at my laptop. As my son and I both love the plastic bricky stuff, this first post is going to be about Lego.
Big kid alert! My name in Miles and this is a big intro to my new very new blog about anything to do with hobbies and games. I like to keep myself entertained so I have got a lot to talk about! I’ll be back soon with my first post, so keep your eyes peeled!
