First Blog - Welcome

Hello and welcome to the Old Moaner.

Yes I am old and I’m always being told I’m a moaner so, I thought, why not share my moans with a wider audience?

After all there is plenty to moan about in this day and age.

The blog is linked to a new supporting website, details of which will be announced when it goes live on January 1st 1014. The web site will contain the rants but will also have sections dedicated to food and travel giving options for fellow old moaners to avoid some of the worse pitfalls.

Some of the topics that will be covered in the first few months are:-

-Bank Holidays
-Blackpool

Feedback, agreeing or disagreeing, is welcome with only two ground rules:-

a) Anonymous comments will be ignored and treated with the contempt they deserve.

b) Any comments which are personally offensive will also be ignored, it is possible to express a contrary view without being rude or offensive.
