Moan About Moans

This doesn’t all mean that I devote my life to moaning… But it does mean I will pursue officials and large entities and pressure them into explaining why they are such a ‘waste of space’. That’s what it comes down to. ‘They’ are effectively as impotent and sitting in the carriage of a runaway train just like the rest of us. I’ll never win against Google or TripAdvisor, the pavements of Penarth will never be ripped up and replaced because I ask for this to be done, the Welsh Government will not stop wasting your money…

Elon Musk

I do not want to live in a world of micro wave energy. I think 5G is a step too far and certainly this global space network is something that we have not been consulted about. Elon Musk is not a visionary. He’s an ego driven futurist who’s business has been, for some reason, consistently supported by the US Government (conspiracy theorists please note) who wants us all to live in ‘his’ future.

TripAdvisor 2

TripAdvisor is a disgrace… I tried for months to have a negative review posted on Cardiff Sea Safaris account but Trip Advisor believe that a business delivering mostly walks in the Brecon Beacons is a ‘direct competitor’ to a boat hire company in Cardiff and so disallowed my review. TripAdvisor allow me to review a cafe in Cardiff but not a cafe in Pontneddfechan – and they won’t tell me why as their algorithms and protocols are ‘proprietary’…

Cardiff Sea Safaris

This company let us down badly and then we assume complained to Trip Advisor when we gave them a one star review and because we are a business Trip Advisor took the review down for fear that Wales Outdoors, a walking business, is a competitor of Cardiff Sea Safaris, a boat hire company. So, we thought we’d blog the details instead.

Google

Like the other monster business’ that dominate our lives, google, it is plain to see, has no care for or empathy with their clients. And their clients are us. Once we truly understand that the likes of fb and google and twitter are cash making machines then we are able to step back a little and wonder at the power that these entities wield.

The National Trust

I have a beef with the National Trust. Several in fact. And so I never pay for parking at their locations and I am not a member, and I never will be. I don’t think, but don’t quote me on it, that their charging is enforceable and to date I have not received a parking fine notification.

The Pavements of Penarth…

A few years back I moved to Penarth, to live outside of Cardiff city centre, near to the international pool where I have a membership for use of the pool, yoga classes and health suit and also to have better security for my vehicles, Cardiff having become like living in ‘The Purge’. I took up longboarding around the bay, from the pool into town and going for the occasional run.
