Follow the life of a recently retired teacher. The bucket lists have been written. How much can be achieved in the next 10 years - from the mundane (baking an edible cake) to the ridiculous (kayaking through the rain forest).
This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

The NYPD seemed to be everywhere.
We were in Times Square when we saw these members of the NYPD on horseback. All the police are armed which is not the case in the UK. We do have armed police but they are a number of specially trained officers so I always find it difficult when I see so many armed police on the streets.
On their segways. It looks as though there is some kind of meaningful discussion going on here but I was close enough to hear their conversation. The one behind was describing the type of pizza he ate last night when he got in from work. The one by the roadside with the umbrella doesn't look particularly impressed.
This police vehicle reminded me of Delboy's car in 'Only fools and horses' Don't think this vehicle would be much good in a chase.
However no chance of getting away with anything with this vehicle's view of the streets.
