The Daily Teaser — 1-10-2014

Right, I’m vaguely rushed, this morning!

I’ve got my daily job-search, at the local job-centre, at half nine.

I’ve got to get the Weekly Teaser posts up.

And the family’s all off out, tonight: celebrating my kid sister’s birthday, catching a live streaming event broadcast by a certain Mr Stephen Fry … 

We’d better get a move on …

The Daily Teaser — 30-9-2014

Bloody hell, it only get’s worse … !

Remember, yesterday, I told you there’d been a stabbing in Brentwood … ?

Just off the High Street, in fact.

That was the least of it.

Turns out it wasn’t the only thing that happened.

It turns out a young woman was raped, late on Saturday night: late enough that it was actually Sunday morning.

I’m an ex-barman: as you may or may not know.   And most of the pub managers I worked for … ?   Were very encouraging about getting us staff to phone cabs for women going home on their own, on a late night.

One or two were insistent.

Now, I know that Friday and Saturday nights are cabbies busiest evenings.   Especially at pub closing time.

But I can’t help but think had the victim put in a cab home, it wouldn’t’ve happened.

As a result … ?   As a result, I’m going to ask you a favour: if you’re one of my female readers, and living in Brentwood.

Get a cab home, if you’re going out this weekend.

The Daily Teaser — 29-9-2014: The Sweeney … !

Bloody HELL … !

You don’t often seen that in Brentwood … !

Seemingly, at 7pm, on Saturday night, there was a stabbing just off Brentwood High Street: on the Junction of Tower Hill and Sir Francis Way.

The victim died of his injuries: which included a stab wound to the heart.

An 18 year-old man has since been arrested on suspicion of murder.

All of this taking place near where a friend of mine lived, which is just a little bit worrying.

The Daily Teaser — 28-9-2014: Dr Fleming, I Presume … ?

Drat … 

And double drat … 

With an upside … 

Um … 

I’d better start making sense, hadn’t I … ?

Well … For starters, I’m out of milk until payday.

I can manage without: but, boy, do I miss it in tea.

The upside to the morning … ?   Is the fact my Apple TV’s now updated itself.

Quite what happened there, I don’t know.   Saying that … ?   I DID know I used the thing’s Network testing features: then tried updating it.

The test had a few glitches.   But there subsequent update … went through with no problems.

I’ve no problems with that.

I’m just wondering what on Earth happened there.

Dr Who — Episode 6: The Caretaker

Oh, now wait a minute … !

Tonight’s episode of Dr Who … ?

That’s what I CALL an episode of Dr Who … !

No, really … !!

Whoa, whoa … 

I think I’d better do some explaining, hadn’t I … ?

Yes … 

I think I’d better.
