The Spaghetti Junction

I’m liking Creatope’s Card Cable Organizer! Using an old card, a whole punch and a pair of scissors you can have your cables organised in minutes (and not so knotted as mine are in cable-ties!). More to the point if I do this with my Visa card, I’ll stop spending money anyway because I won’t have it with me – a win, win situation! photo credit: Peter Kaminski

Impressed with Orange (for a change)

I’d almost bordered on getting rid of my Orange contract recently, and moving over to either T-Mobile (for their data plans) or O2 (for the iPhone obviously!), but they’ve surprised me in the last 24 hours and I may well stay with them. Yesterday for some unknown reason the main keypad on my SPV M700 (O2 XDA IIs, HTC Trinity, HTC P3600 whichever you want to call it!) just stopped working. I promptly rang Orange and asked the all important question….. No, it wasn’t will they replace it, it was: “When are you going to release the HTC Diamond?” I’d noticed it on their website as “Coming Soon” and already knew it was a phone I wanted. The very helpful… Continue reading »

10p each, recycling and Volvo's!?

Alright I’m only going to mention a few of them, but the 10 things we didn’t know last week grabbed my attention this morning and a learnt a few things! The cost of the monarchy has gone up, by 4p (that’s per person in the UK mind!), it now costs us all 66p to keep them in the lifestyle they’ve become accustomed to – I wonder if I could get everyone in the UK to just send me 10p – I’d feel a whole lot better about the situation then! Recycling, it’s a big thing again these days – we remember when we were at school and there was a big drive then for it (mainly instigated by Blue Peter… Continue reading »

Celebrity Bloggers

A similarly titled post by Putang on Indonesia Matters just made me wonder, do you know of, or read any celebrity blogs? Is there ever going to come a day when these type of blogs replace the Hello’s and OK’s of the world? Just a thought?

A bit of Creativity – and some time!

It’s amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it… I recently had the pleasure of producing Siân and John’s Wedding DVD. By all accounts it looks OK – personally I can see all the mistakes I made in it… Anyway I bought Pinnacle at the time, and after a few issues we had great fun editing the video down, but the most amusing thing I found was that they sent me a green sheet with it… Obviously to play with their green screen feature, I had a little go with the this (the feature – not the sheet!!) during editing and planned to have a proper go some other time (time is somewhat of a commodity… Continue reading »

The Internet Generation?

OK, So we’re the “Internet Generation”, never has the internet been so easy to access, and for most of us we either work in it – or spend our leisure time on it. If you’re my age, you probably helped to shape some if it (maybe without realising it!!), the question is how do you feel about your kids “Growing Up Online”? You might wonder what’s prompted me to talk about this? Julie’s Journal posted a preview video for this US show I’m watching this at the moment online and it definitely makes some interesting watching! How connected are you and your family?

Time to Sell Up – and Ship Out!

Just kidding…… Not sure how this works, but after reading this I decided to see what my blog is worth (another damned algorithm, this could get worse than PageRank!!). As of today it is worth $1,129.08. But it will be interesting to see how that changes over time! My blog is worth $1,129.08. How much is your blog worth?
