Families – Friends or Foes?

Families – Friends or Foes?

Like an old Rainbow song, I was 'The Black Sheep Of The Family' and I guess some of you feel that way too. When I was very small I heard an argument over something that I had done between my Mam and Dad, and half way through out came the phrase "We didn't want him...

Funky Ginja, A Less Than Dedicated Follower Of Fashion!

For those of you who have wandered way down the Alan Robson timeline seeing no end of weird clothes I've worn over the years will know that I have not exactly been a slave to fashion. My earliest clothes memory went back to me wanting what the bigger kids had, a Ben...

Necrophilia – Isn’t It Dead Boring?

Just the other week a shocking story that really would fit in with all of my 'Grisly' tales, a man who worked in a morgue having sex with his customers. Apparently he admitted to having sex with 44 corpses, but they reckon it was probably in the hundreds. This is a...

The Toy Ghosts Of Christmas Past

The Toy Ghosts Of Christmas Past

I've always been a sucker for Christmas, despite rarely ever getting any of the things I wanted. I love the idea of a time when you think of others before yourself, when everyone is a little nicer, kinder and more accepting of one another. Yet even from the earliest...

My Life As An Entrepreneur

My Life As An Entrepreneur

I have always had problems with money. I had one manager (at the height of my success) who stole over 20 years of my life savings, then hid the cash and told the police he went bankrupt. Because he had been my manager he used my money for a solicitor, I was broke so...

Road Food

Now I travel up and down Britain a lot, trying to find business, visiting spooky locations, researching things for books and generally just exploring. Now the one thing about Britain that we all should be totally disgusted about is the dire standard, and stupidly...
