Not an eclipse…..

Saturday, March 21st, 2015

It was cloudy here in Reigate throughout yesterday’s eclipse so all I can offer you is a little black spot on the sun from a few days earlier…..


Big Garden Birdwatch 2015

Sunday, January 25th, 2015

This year I used technology to count at least some of the birds……

There were, as you can see, several. Mainly Blue Tits and Greenfinches but also a Redpoll for the first time….probably wouldn’t have noticed if not for the camera taking the shots automatically.

Not my first embedded video I think but probably first from YouTube…a bit small when embedded into the old classic Planarchy layout isn’t it?

Is the catchy name for days like today (though this is the first for a while so you probably don’t remember the last).

More Progress!!!

Somehow, our youngest turned 18 today….how on earth we got to that I don’t know.

For the cake she’d set her heart on one that had her picture on it, the result of too many TV programmes featuring spoilt American princesses I think and something I was deeply sceptical of. But, after looking around the internet a bit and a few short chats with the folks at Caketoppers I was prepared to give it a go and not-so-young-any-more Kay selected a few choice photos for the top of the cake. The cake even arrived in one piece thanks to some pretty simple but very efficient packaging. The photo quality was, I have to say really good…..obviously they’re a bit fainter than “real” photos but the level of detail is really pretty outstanding. Apparently, they actually pass a thin layer of icing through their printer which runs on edible inks! What would Caxton have said, eh?

There were going to be photos like over at LDNP but I’m too busy playing my new Telecaster so you’ll have to settle for Tom Robinson’s Fifty.
