pete is like a fish out of water…

Dear diablog,

Engine Room, earlier this week, submitted us to his continuing (continuous?) – and inaccurate –  ravings on ‘delicious’ apparently American based food. Much he knows.

The real deal is never far from where you live, and how much fresher could a 15″ (oh Ok Smiles, 375mm) trout be than this


when caught right outside Pete’s back door – by two young boys with £11.99 rods no less!

Surveying the view of the first catch whilst it was on its way to being landed


amazingly lead, in the blink of an eye, to….

trying to get pete back…

Dear diablog,

Pete and I had a luverly lunch together recently and in conversation found ourselves debating how much control of our own lives we had.

Answer, in both cases, nothing!

This then is probably why he is missing – though he claims that it is because he has nothing to write about!


Maybe the best thing to wind him into action, as I guess he is not football orientated right now,


would be to bore the hell out of him and talk about cars – for the whole week (have I got a piece of film for you/him!) linking it, first, to a sexist advert.

Glynsky’s Christmas

Dear Reader,

First pictures of Glynsky at the Christmas Day table have arrived and have gone viral. It seems he is well on his way to become an internet celebrity.

Here is one shot from an unknown paparazzi:

Happy holidays,

Engine Room

he missed one…

Dear diablog,

Last week I passed on some cultural info from Erika


vis a vis (pun intended!) regarding The Spanner Man.

Dear Pete decided to emulate the idea, and add his own twist. Sadly, as you can see from the secret film taken last night, he failed miserably and ended up with a Spanner in the Works!!

Yours, diablog, wondering what he will try next


our tech support 1…

Dear diablog,

Several of our female readers have, over time, requested and had valued ‘servicing’ from the redoubtable Engine Room of whom we even have secret film of him at ‘work’


Sometimes, though, only the written word conveys all you want to say.

One of the best ever Techsupport letters comes from Philippa


Dear Technical Support,

18 months ago, I upgraded to Girlfriend 1.0 from DrinkingMates 4.2, which I had used for years without any trouble. However, there are apparently conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try and run Girlfriend 1.0 with the sound turned off.

To make matters worse, Girlfriend 1.0 is incompatible with several other applications, such as LadsNightOut 3.1, Football 4.5, and Playboy 6.9. Successive versions of GirlFriend proved no better.

I tried a shareware program, Slapper 2.1, but it had many bugs and left a virus in my system, forcing me to shut down completely for several weeks. Eventually, I tried to run GirlFriend 1.2 and Girlfriend 1.0 at the same time, only to discover that when these two systems detected each other they caused severe damage to my hardware.

I eventually upgraded to Fiancée 1.0, only to discover that this product soon had to be upgraded further to Wife 1.0. While Wife 1.0 tends to use up all my available resources, it does come bundled with FreeSexPlus and Cleanhouse2005.
