The Blackpool Tower "Experience"

Blackpool Tower Title

Sometimes, you just run out of excuses. It's a fact of life that you can only put of some things for so long, then you eventually have to suck it up and actually face the truth. As abhorrent as it may be to you, the inevitable will catch up with you; you're going to have to go to Blackpool.

Nintendo 3DS Review

3DS Banner

Okay... So, I love gaming, but one thing I'm a real sucker for is a new gaming platform. So I rounded up my old DS's and sold them, did a bit of freelance email server work, saved a few pennies and traded in a huge stockpile of junk and bought a 3DS.

I've been disparaging about Nintendo and their “rinse and repeat”, but that doesn't mean I'm not willing to try things out, it's always the quirky stuff I love and I'm sure you can find it.

So, how about a full review?

Saturdays eh?

 Madame_Furie is currently doing a college course (GCSE in pedantry I think) and had work to do for it. So on Thursday I said I'd take the kids into town and get them out of her way for a few hours.

On Friday, Madame_Furie took the kids into town, which completely ruined my plans So, Saturday rolls up, and I have to do something with the minor_furies.

Ooglies CBBC Show Review  Banner

Welcome to the latest obsession of the Family_Furie. Ooglies is one of those fantastic shows that all the family can sit down together to watch, and enjoy thoroughly. All you need to do is leave all adult sensibilities in the cupboard under the stairs... Ooglies is puerile, childish, ridiculous, silly and utterly hilarious.

New Lego Range.

Lego News Banner

Lego has recently announced a new range of products. No, it may just be me being an old fuddy duddy, but I thought the idea of Lego was to use your imagination to create a toy you wanted, and to let it loose on the world.

These new releases though seem to be a long way from that... Read on...
