A quickie

Louise bought a smaller pumpkin, and as I didn’t have much time, I decide on the quick option. (It’s not exactly how it will look, as most of the insides are in a bag ready to take to the party where I’ll reassemble it). Anyway, enough nonsense. Have a good night if you are out…Continue reading A quickie


Peter prompts – which order should comments appear – oldest to newest (oldest at the top) or newest to oldest? I’ve had it set as newest to oldest, but have changed it to oldest to newest and I’m about to head off round the blogospher (ohh ok round my blogroll) to take an informal poll…Continue reading Commenting

An Advert: Got iTunes? Get Tag&Rename which now has m4a support (iTunes info in MP3 files). I’ve been using this program for about a year now, keeping my MP3 collection in neat order. Coupled with MusicMatch for ripping it ensures filenames and ID3 tags are the way I want them I’ve been posting at Troubled…Continue reading Coupla quick things

Carving the Pumpkin

Firstly you must be prepared. Knives are essential (obviously) as is an ice cream scoop. Other sites my advocate power tools but I prefer the hand approach (and I’m not allowed them in the kitchen…).

Ohh and don’t try and give…Continue reading Coming soon… *

I love this game

New NBA season has kicked off, and thankfully I now have Sky Sports Extra so can catch some games and highlights. Only problem: Look at the show times!. 9 a.m. on a Saturday morning – that’s criminal!


Article from today’s Metro (the train users friend): “Culture Minister Frank McAveety will travel to Hollywood this weekend to help push Scottish culture and fashion … [at the] Dressed to Kilt event.” The headline? “Frankie Goes to Hollywood.”

All quiet

Been a busy day, so much so I didn’t even manage to post over at Diva Towers. I do have something prepared though for tomorrow. Of course when I say prepared, I mean I know the topic. And when I say I know the topic, I mean I know roughly what ‘area’ it will fall…Continue reading All quiet
