A bit of an intro

- Posted in About me. by

This domain was used for my business , but things have moved on, So i am using it for a fragmented blog. By that I mean it is mainly the ramblings of an old geyser.

If you arrived here from Mastodon, Then expect to find longer posts than my masto account allows.

If you found one of my company pens, I apologise, as it probably doesnt work, I bought a fun pack from a pen company and NONE of them worked. There are refills around that will fit. Just don't come complaining to me !

Just me

- Posted in About me. by

An intro post, Who am I, ( as if you care ) and why I write this drivel. Obviously there is content to come.

I like this script, Although I use others, this works nicely for me, So I managed an update, which gave me the idea that it is still being maintained, But after three attempts at extracting to another server... Well it all went to porridge,or was it Sausage... Need to have a clear out of redundant files and see if I can get a clean install. In the meantime enjoy your day,

My Cousin's birthday treat thing, we had a night away with family at the Midland Hotel, Morecambe.

It was very nice, staff, food and the place. Probably add some more pics, just need to resize some. But to keep you going, the first is the iconic statue of Eric Morecambe, the second is the bed, Seems it isn't just me that thinks "bra and pants "

Eric Our Eric.

The Bed Bra and pants ?

Started to run a few back ups with plans to migrate to another server and noticed some quirky issues. I hear the developer is not continuing to support this script, which is a shame as I like it !

Update ! There is an update, so this script is supported. This is now updated and I am checking the img refs. Seems absolute refs are not a good idea if you plan to move a site. !

Constant tweeking going on.

Tis I, Dear reader, Dont be alarmed

Old stuff

- Posted in The Olden Days by

Some years back my granddaughter asked me , " Granddad, Were you in the olden days " To a certain extent, I was. So I thought I would add an " Olden days " section. ( Work in Progress though ) The image is a musical Birthday card, It was given to me on my 5th Birthday in 1950. It still works, held together with sellotape and love.

A first post over here

Playing with this script, It may last a while, Then again...? The picture is me in Lagos, Portugal. Tim on a bench Having swapped servers and domains some of the image references will be wrong, Sorry... Working my way through and updating them.

Hope to keep this updated, But fair to say, We have heard that before.

The return of the Stones

During lockdown painted stones began to appear around the village, What was nice was people left them alone.

Now some new ones have started to appear.

I just love this sort of thing. enter image description here

I hope this starts a trend.

My mate Trevor.

- Posted in Uncategorized by

Some years ago, I moved from Slough down to a village near Sevenoaks in Kent.

One of the guys I used to meet in the Pub was Trevor. He lived quite close to me and sometimes we would stagger home together. We got on well and became good friends.

One evening in the pub Trevor ran out of money, So I lent him ten bob. ( Ten Shillings ) 50pence in todays money. (in the days when the UK used real money where 20 shillings made a pound). In due course, he paid me back. One afternoon, I ran out of money ,Trevor lent me ten bob. Over the months and years, This ten bob note bounced back and forth between us until neither of us knew who owed whom ten bob. I think it became a bit of a laugh, Just for fun. Trevor moved to Canada and we would keep in touch two or three times a year by email or a phone call.

Trevor began signing off his emails with " You got my ten bob ?"
I went online and bought a Ten Shilling note, Fully intending to post it to him. However, about that time, Trevor changed his address and took to drugs, The emails became fewer and phone calls stopped. Then I got messages to say he was clean and had been so for a few years. Then we lost contact, I managed to find his daughter via social media, She told me Trevor died in January this year 2023,
I shall miss him but I still have the ten bob note as a reminder.

Emergency alerts

- Posted in Uncategorized by

Seems our Government want even more control over us. Not only do they want to read all our messages via a backdoor for every app, It wants to send us emergency alerts too.

cant hide your phone

Well, it came and went. Of the four people near me, One triggerd at 3pm and another a few minutes later. Mine was disabled and didnt sound, The fourth, I didnt hear anything. But the message was in an American accent ! Nothing against Americans, My Father was one, But couldnt we afford to create our own system? Somehow, I doubt I will find the scheme useful, They are either going to tell us to stay out of the sun when the Summer finally arrives, Or warn me we are about to be nuked which is also pointless as Tin Hats are not as effective as they were in 1940.

March stuff

So busy doing other stuff, I keep forgetting to post to this site.

Yesterday I started with a cough, runny nose and sneezing. Aching joints etc. The boss looked at me as if I had developed Bubonic plague. By the way, What happened to spring ?


Tree hugging at Ulverston

- Posted in Uncategorized by

Found a picture of the Temple at Ulverston. Actually Conishead Priory,
Now has a beautiful Buddist Temple in the grounds,

A fabulous and breathtaking place , between the priory and the Kent estuary there a large chunk of woodland with some amazing trees in it. Sadly people dont always clean up after their dogs and you need to look where you are putting your feet. It is open to the public and if you can, I recommend you go and see for yourself.
