Crete Uncovered

September 29th, 2011 · Comments Off on Crete Uncovered · Life

As teachers used to say “this is going to hurt me more than it hurts you”. I’m sure nobody wants to read all about my holidays, and I’m not sure I want to write about them but it needs to be done so I can move on, so here are a few thoughts about Crete, […]

Babysitting

We were babysitting today ((When I say ‘we’ I mean that I was also in the house but Jayne did most of the gushing and cooing and all of the feeding and changing)) , looking after the three week-old granddaughter while her parents went off to Ikea.  To say Jayne has been looking forward to […]

Jayne and I went to Amberley museum for the second time in three days today.  They do a deal whereby if you keep hold of your tickets you can return for free within 5 days, so we did.  When we went on Saturday we left without seeing everything because we had to do some supermarket […]

Picture quiz

February 18th, 2011 · 4 Comments · Life

In response to Peter, I’ll post a few questions, starting with a few that you can’t Google anyway. Quizzes often have picture rounds, and it is really easy to get pictures of anything you want in the internet age and the invention of Google Image Search.  Of course going on an image search can get […]

New toy time

February 12th, 2011 · Comments Off on New toy time · Technology

My printer has been playing up a lot lately.  Lots of error messages about the ink system failing, and it would also lock up a lot when scanning. I did a bit of research on the net and found that it was most likely a hardware fault that could easily be fixed with a couple […]

Bleak and harrowing

February 2nd, 2011 · Comments Off on Bleak and harrowing · Life

Earlier today I found what has to be the bleakest, most harrowing, and depressing website in the world.   It is the result of an 18-year photographic documentary project called The Julie Project. Have a look, but don’t blame me if, afterwards, you feel that a little bit of yourself has died.

Vivian Maier

January 31st, 2011 · Comments Off on Vivian Maier · Life

There are some remarkable photos by somebody called Vivian Maier over at this site. It appears that she took photographs, thousands and thousands of them, around Chicago from the 1950s onwards, possibly for her own amusement.  Many were not even developed before she died.  Somebody bought a job lot of her photos and films at […]

George Osborne: what a cock!

September 10th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Life

The Daily Mail website has a story about ‘Osborne’s plans to hit workshy’. Scroll down to the bottom and there is this remarkable image. Not the first time I have looked at the DM website and felt like clawing my eyes out, and it won’t be the last I am sure.

Wallowing in it

September 1st, 2010 · 3 Comments · Life

I have been putting off going through my photos for a while because it was a bit daunting, but now I have started and it turns out to be a much better way to pass an evening than watching TV and I have already scanned in some of my favourites from two albums which cover […]

Scanning and planning

August 31st, 2010 · Comments Off on Scanning and planning · Life

I have been quite busy over the last few weeks.  We have been doing a bit of decorating to make it more likely we will be able to move – and so that it is more pleasant to live if we stay here.  Before that I had to fill in the holes in the wall […]
