All of these items, such as

  • Corned Beef
  • Milk Shake
  • Tuna Melt
  • Grilled Cheese
  • Hash Brown
  • Fish n Chips
  • Surf n Turf
  • French Toast
  • Bacon n Eggs
  • Lunch Box

are genuinely available from the Maplin's product catalog and high street stores.!

They are mostly electric guitar accessories.

Hello to all of you and thanks for dropping in.
I have been quite busy lately but due to persistent nagging about when am I going to post again? here it is :-)

Hi to all of you,

I was tipped off (thanks Mark) that William Gibson, author of "Neuromancer", "Count Zero", "Mona Lisa Overdrive", "The Difference Engine" (with Bruce Stirling), "Virtual Light", "Idoru", "All Tomorrow's Parties", and "Pattern Recognition", was going to be signing copies of his latest book "Spook Country".


A couple of years ago armed with my trusty security bit screwdriver I managed to obtain a London transport CCTV poster.


It turns out that William Gibson had put on his blog that he was after the very same poster. So...I went to the book signing with my poster and traded it for a hardback copy of his book which he then wrote a dedication in it to me :-)


The dedication says:

To Reverend Rat with extreme gratitude for his generosity and security tool!
