Needed to get to Pocklington early this morning before the Tour de Yorkshire cycle race comes through the town at approximately 13.45.

and it gave me an opportunity to snap some pictures, of what the people of Pocklington have down to support the Tour de Yorkshire.

Yeah, I’m the Taxman - HMRC Self Assessment Tax Return, So do I have to Pay Nothing or Do I owe you 20p?

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Let me tell you how it will be
There’s one for you, nineteen for me
‘Cause I’m the Taxman
Yeah, I’m the Taxman
Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don’t take it all
‘Cause I’m the Taxman
Yeah, I’m the Taxman

George Harrison, 1965

Too bloody true…..

If you are like me, and need to do, a Tax Return each year by Self Assessment, you’ve only got two weeks left (14 days) to get it done online here - http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/sa/, try not to leave it to the last minute because the HMRC server get’s bogged down, and times out!

I’ve actually remembered to do mine, on time, but I’m confused it says, “nothing to pay”, and then “You have a total of £0.20 becoming due for payment

and despite writing off Tax owed my millionaires in the UK, I bet they will chase the small man for 20p, the fat cats get richer…..

eh, Taxman, if you read Twitter/Google+, you can let me know!

I’ve switched OFF and tuned to BBC Radio 2.

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

With the recent replacement of Chris ‘Saviour of Radio 1″ Moyles, on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick ‘Grimmy’ Grimshaw, because BBC Radio 1, wanted to reach a younger audience, well BBC Radio 1, it’s worked.

I’ve switched OFF and over to BBC Radio 2.

I’ve tried, I’ve certainly tried, since “Grimmy” took over the show from 24 September 2012, but finally this week, I could stand it no more, and I switched over to BBC Radio 2, with Chris Evans!

A DJ I used to listen to on BBC Radio 1. So 13+ years I’ve been listening to the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show, now it looks like I’ll be listening to Chris Evans, and Radio 2 in the mornings!

Summer 2012 Over?

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

Well the Summer is almost over, I think the Swallows have already flown and migrated back to Africa, and the House Martins are waiting to return, as they are still flying above the house.

There are still a few fields and crops of wheat and barley to harvest…

Andysworld! wishes you a Happy British Summer Time!

Some people believe the pragmatically minded British did it to make economy on candles.”
