Been sorting out Peterborough Greyhounds photos!

Due to lot’s of things happen on other websites, I’ve been spending lot’s of time, moving photos back to this website! So, I have full control over them, how my data is used etc!

Also since Flickr, now only let’s you host 2,500 photos, and the less said about Tumblr, the better! Can’t see them, being about much longer!!!

So first of all, I’ve been moving all the photos, I’ve taken at the Peterborough Greyhounds photos back over to this website!! Got to say, I’ve had many good times at work, over the years!

Can’t believe Glasgow 2014 was a four years ago!

I can’t believe that the Glasgow 2014, Commonwealth Games was 4 years ago! So here is a look back to 2014, when at my place of work we had a theme evening for the start of the games!

Good luck to our Home Nations teams that are taking part in the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games! Question, is who do I support Scotland or England?

More photos from this set can be seen at www.gordon-valentine.com/zenphoto/days-out/23-07-2014/

We now sell these at the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium…

You can tell it’s been a slow week, when I start getting excited that we now sell Strongbow Cloudy Apple Cider and Caledonian Coast to Coast Pale Ale at Peterborough Greyhound Stadium, my place of work!

And of the course the funny thing, is that I don’t even drink. A bar supervisor that does not drink, can’t be many of them about!

Oh and want to see more fun photos that I’ve taken at the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium over the years? Then check out at www.gordon-valentine.com/zenphoto/peterborough-greyhound-stadium/

Second cycle to work of 2017!

That’s me now cycled to work, twice so far this year! Well pleased with that! Also set a better time, this time around! On Saturday it took me 1:49:48 (h:m:s), this time it took me 1:45:25. Of course in the summer, I will set even better times!

By cycling to and from just twice this year, I’ve already saved 96 car miles!

First cycle back from work of 2017!

Since I cycled to work, I of course had to cycle back home again… last year, I always left my bike at work, then got a lift back the next day. So always cycled home in daylight! So it’s the first, time I’ve cycled back from work at night, in 2 years! Lucky since, I last did it! I’ve got a much better front light again!
