IHOP Done Right

Posted: 29th February 2012 by admin in Daily YDIR

Good Day Everyone!  Your good ol’ faithful admin here to give Mr. Ydir the day off.  I know, I know… you’d all rather be reading this post imagining a wonderfully delightful British accent.  Only to be disappointed with the drawl of an American of the Southern variety.  (Continue to pretend that this is being spoken […]

Sock Sliding

Posted: 28th February 2012 by Mr. YDIR in Daily YDIR

Have you ever wanted to set a world record for sliding in your socks? If you are like me you had probably never even thought of it, but  Sainsbury’s (a UK super market) is holding sock sliding events in a number of locations across the UK in order to promote sport relief socks. If you buy a pair […]

Glyncoch Community Centre

Hello sorry for the lack of blog over the past few days, I was having a few ‘technical’ issues, mostly due to a lack of sleep. Anyway,  I’ll get on with the job in hand which is telling people (or companies or films or anything else) that they are doing a good job, and awarding them […]

Sleep Out

Posted: 23rd February 2012 by Mr. YDIR in Daily YDIR

I will quite happily award a YDIR to companies, projects or even films. But I really like finding an individual that has deiced to make a effort to make their bit of the world a bit of a better place. They don’t have to be doing something for charity (see rummer hotel waiter & Anna Turney) as […]

Centre for Sustainable Energy

Posted: 22nd February 2012 by Mr. YDIR in Daily YDIR

Now I don’t know about you but I can’t help but think sustainability is a pretty good idea, future planning is something that since having a child has become a much bigger feature in my life than it was before, and hopefully I am getting better at it. Anyway I don’t want to turn this blog about […]

Home Remedies

But more specifically my Gran’s remedy for a painful stomach. It’s a basic whisky punch, just add warm water and a spoonful of sugar to a bit of whisky. Just need to sip it and then quicker than you would expect, your stomach pain will have eased off. It has worked a treat for me […]

Unless you are from Clevedon or know it quite well I’m sure the title might be a source of confusion, to be honest I know what I am writing about and I still don’t understand the name…oh wait it’s the address! but what is it the address of? I have had a report that Five […]

Cyclists Doing It Right

Posted: 18th February 2012 by Mr. YDIR in Daily YDIR

I don’t know what it is like where you live, but I seam to come across a disportionately high number of negative attitudes towards cyclists, which I struggle to understand. I know some cyclists can be incredibly inconsiderate, but so can some motorists, likewise some pedestrians. We all need to get somewhere and your somewhere is not more (or […]

the big lunch 2012

Posted: 16th February 2012 by Mr. YDIR in Daily YDIR

Now this a great idea,  and another one of those projects that I feel is my duty to let people know about, and this one is dead easy to get involved in! The big lunch is an eden project (another great idea, that I’m sure will get a proper mention at some point, as it deserves more than just a […]
