Cavalry charges: that’s how it used to be in the good old days! But then came the Tank: dirty, ugly, noisy and of course terribly effective in battle. So the horses moved from the battlefield to other parts of the Army.
So it must be a bit of a surprise to find that the British Army still has more Horses than Tanks even today.
According to a response to a Freedom of Information request the Army currently has 485 horses, compared to 227 Challenger Main Battle Tanks.
I’ve been using Evernote as my note taking app for some time now and to be honest it’s been pretty excellent, it’s sharing is great and it’s integration with Google Chrome is first class.
But recently I’ve become seduced more and more by Microsoft products, their smartphone and tablet apps really have shifted the game with OneDrive. So when I decided to explore the use of OneNote a little more there was the challenge of moving my life history of notes from Evernote to OneNote. How do you that?
I had a lovely weekend in Abergavenny this weekend, not having been there for probably 20 years or more. We stayed in a very nice pub in the middle of town: The Kings Arms and would recommend it very highly. It’s a quaint old beamed building that has creaky sloping floors, panelled walls and loads of character.
The staff were really friendly, the room comfy and the food very good indeed. There was also a lovely atmosphere in the bar, which had some very good beer too.
I remember Abergavenny as a comfortable market-town, with small independent shops giving it a real sense of character. Sadly that’s changed: charity shops, branded coffee shops and a few super markets have changed the town quite a bit. And probably not for the better either.
It’s a real shame as it was once a super market-town, whilst now it’s changed to a supermarket town which appears to have killed off some local businesses. A shame indeed, some may call it progress but I’d disagree.
