After a year off, and with a new venue, I assisted for a fourth time with the GVWI‘s Hallowe’en Party – by being the DJ, along with Andy Ravensable and Simon Landmine. There are also a host of photos from the evening – click on the photo to the right.
Another week, and in particular one week closer to Whitby (which we head up to next Thursday). I’m undecided if there will be a post next Friday or not, it all depends on how good my data service is (or whether our cottage has WiFi) – connections remain rather sketchy in the North Yorkshire town.

Despite the all-pervading influence that the internet has over our lives nowadays – pretty much any information we need, many purchases, interacting with Government at almost any level, not to mention almost any form of entertainment you can think of in some way or another – it is actually a little surprising that there aren’t […]
