We’re on the M1 heading to the National Space Centre to meet Col. Al Worden and hopefully get my Lego Saturn V rocket signed by the man himself


Sunday morning with the family

Breakfast at the Sunrise Café in Burnham followed by a trip to the Taplow Car Boot Sale:


The car boot was quite small this week and it was cold and damp but I managed to find some 80’s retro Soda Stream Bottles:


Then we went to the Moss End Garden Centre, had some lunch and visited the antiques shop there. They have two floors of goodies from the usual pottery and silver through to vintage clothing and toys and everything in between:

I bought a couple of vinyl LP’s and vintage model toy.







Alexa Pizza Skill

We got an email earlier advertising the new Alexa Skill for Dominoes Pizza so decided to give them a go as we both fancied a Pizza.

Took a few minutes to create a Dominoes website account with address and payment details. You then access the Alexa App on your phone to add the Dominoes skill. So far, all worked as expected and was easy enough with Dominoes online guide to the process.

“Alexa, Ask dominoes to feed me!”

Alexa checked her records and asked me a few questions around what I wanted to order. She asked if we wanted to hear a joke whilst she did this and then announced there had been a problem. I asked her for the order details and she dais there had been a problem and I should check my email. Oh dear! Am I going to get a Pizza or not?

Checked my email and there was a Dominoes email confirming my order had been placed.

In the mean time the email said I could check the order status online….


You can also ask Alexa where your order is…

“Alexa, where’s my Pizza”. She replied “mmm….I Don’t know that”

Apparently if our local Slough branch doesn’t have GPS enabled this wont work.

And the Pizza finally arrived 45 minutes later.

Altogether quite cool. Shame the Alexa skill didn’t fully work
