As a retired fire brigade officer, one of my other passions is naturally to teach about fire safety.
On occasion I get invited by a school or a company where I teach them about how to increase their fire safety. I sure have my share of experience with all sorts of equipment like fire extinguishers, smoke detectors and the like. I can tell you which one of those devices I recommend to you and which ones of those you to better want to avoid.
Just last week, I had some buddies approach me about dry riser testing here in Exeter. This is something really important especially for business owners since UK law requires them to have their dry riser systems tested and maintained regularly.
I sure could tell you one or the other story of the “not so great” companies in our area that sometimes operate rather sloppy when it comes to this. I always say (you will hopefully agree with me there ) that safety is extremely important and you shouldn’t make any compromises when it comes to such things like dry riser tests. If you’re a business owner it’s your obligation that anyone in your company is safe and sound.
One company that they can really recommend to you, not only for dry riser testing but anything else related to fire safety here in Devon is Argos Fire Ltd. Give them a ring if you need dry riser testing and they will assist you amazingly!
Not surprisingly, a lot of my friends who are collecting watches are also collecting other goodies. Here is a helpful list I found over at The Telegraph about the most searched-for vinyl records for all you record collectors of there.
Some of the records on the list have only been printed 500 times which means they are definitely real gems any real record collector would probably give their left arm for owning!!
Check out the ultra-rare album by Elvis Presley My Happiness!
This is a true gem on a 10″ 78RPM vinyl record! It is Elvis’ first ever recording from 1953, as rare as it gets!
If you have a relative or friend who loves sports, and here in particular horse racing , I have a great gift idea for you.
What about giving him or her some solid horseracing tips? Better even, you can get those tips free which makes this type of gift not only really unique and creative but also ideal if you don’t want to spend too much money!
Most folks who are enthusiastic about horseracing in the United Kingdom are always keen on getting some tips and strategies that can help them to win the one or the other but the next time they visit the racetrack. So you can imagine how happy my friend Andrew was winner gave him a bunch of racing tips for his birthday last year.
Low and behold, why didn’t go home with a millionaire is still one quite a bit of money which allowed him to write us all to dinner and finally get his car fixed too!
Now, as you can imagine getting horseracing tips that work isn’t always very easy. There is simply too many shady sources out there who are just in for the money and whose racing strategies don’t really work at all.
In my opinion, one of the better websites out there if you’re talking about horseracing in the UK is the horse racing pro website. The good thing about this site is that the guys providing free tips, at least for those in the United Kingdom. This is also how I got those great free horse racing tips that I used as a gift for Andrew.
So if you have a friend who loves the races, why not do something different and give them some working was racing tips as a nice surprise this Easter?

Would you want to spend $17,000 on Apple’s latest smart watch? Would you consider Apple’s watch a collectors item?
According to the experts at Barrons, Apple’s latest creation is not really something a serious watch collector would be keen on owning.
The watch collection experts at Barron’s Penta said that they were “floored” by the pricing. According to their awards, “these are commodity pieces, basically a small computer that is wrapped in gold, with nothing intrinsically unique or irreplaceable about them”.
In other words, aside from the high price for the watch there’s really nothing too special about it at least according to Richard C. Morais, Penta’s editor.
When asked about the watch, Mr Morais said that such limited-edition watches like Apple’s latest isn’t really anything special. Watchmakers such as Panerai or IWC sell similar limited edition watches priced about the same as the Apple much. He pointed out that the $17,000 timepiece is pretty much the same as their base model but then with gold and a leather band.
Several watch collector enthusiasts in the UK and elsewhere agree that Apple’s latest high-priced timepieces are all about status and style – not exactly the domain of serious watch collectors.
What do you think? Would you consider the $17,000 limited edition Apple worthy of buying for your collection? Let us know!
