A new year a new start

Hey Friends,

So I’ve let the blog run by itself in the last couple of months and there is a few good reasons for this but the main reason is, I let myself get sidetracked and divert from the main reason I started blogging in the first place which is to blog about what I enjoy. I love writing and hearing about other peoples way of life, I love where I live and all the things I see day today. All my memories from childhood right up to now are all here in Scotland. Where did I go wrong well Continue reading A new year a new start

Hello, its been a while

Hi friends,

Yes it has been a while since my last post, life getting in the way busy time of year for everyone but getting back on track. As I have said before it is surprising how much time it takes to maintain a blog its more than you would think so I have more respect for bloggers than I did before having now gone through the process, as well as that putting out weekly podcasts it has added to the process. But thats not a complaint its just something learned along the way. As for the podcasts I would like to keep doing them as much as possible but promising them weekly is alot to achieve along with the blog and work, however I still intend puting them out as often as I can. I would like them to be more broad but still include music and hopefully talk about other subjects as well and even guests from time to time. A big part of it I would like is for you to get involved and tell us about your life where you live and a bit about yourself and your interests.  If you are interested in doing that you can contact me through the contact envelope on the left hand side of this page. I do love posting and really do enjoy hearing from other people and learning about there life it’s what keeps me motivated.

Arrrhhh what a week

Hi Friends,

Well what a week, studio flooded!! I’m trying to put off testing my equipment I’m scared to find out if my mixer is still working or not, I have a small back up one but not the anything like my main one which is awesome. Then my network went down and I thought I had lost all my blog posts, however by Thursday it was back up again. So this is why my posts have been few this week. Anyway new podcast to come this weekend and really excited about this weeks artist.

Short info on up and coming podcast

Hey Friends,

The weekend is upon us again and I hope you are able to enjoy it. I’m glad to look out of my window this morning and see bright sunshine instead of the heavy that rain we have seen in Scotland over the last week.

Allot of my week has been spent setting up the podcasting equipment for the weekly podcast that I will be doing on the blog. this will be feature Bands/Singer songwriters’ music that is away from the main stream industry. What does that mean away from the main stream industry. In the main it means that the artists themselves have the sole rights to their own music and can say how their work can or can’t be used. Unlike record companies owning these rights giving the artist little or no say in direction of their own work. What has been a big surprise to me is the good music that is out there by bands doing it all on their own, I.e Continue reading Short info on up and coming podcast

The early morning Airport run

3.30am friends, somehow I managed to pull my self out of bed get dressed and come round to some kind of awakened consciousness. My 20 year old son meanwhile who will be boarding a plane to Salou in about 2 hours has been up showered and hyper with the anticipation of his  holiday ahead. Stepping out to the car, the still darkened town was still and quiet at least until I started the engine of my diesel Volvo V70, just one pick up on the way and that was to pick up my Sons Girlfriend 4 miles away.

Having made the planned collection of ones Sons Girlfriend, Continue reading The early morning Airport run

Good Morning

Friends, its  a better day here than it has been over the last few days. The sun isn’t exactly shinning but its not raining and that for us scots is a bonus.

It is one thing that has been very apparent over the last few years and that is the wetter weather over what would traditionally be called the summer months. May and June seem to be quite good months and then it seems to be longer periods of rain, quite heavy at times. Last year 2015 it seemed to rain from August to Feb 2016 Continue reading Good Morning
