The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for my blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,500 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Hello ……. is there anybody there?
To put paid to the rumour that I only bought vinyl in 1979 I’ve chosen Gorillaz’ self-titled album, released in 2001 as this week’s Record Of The Week. I only bought this last year from the fabulous Tribal Vinyl at Eumundi Markets on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. The menacing sound of The Day of The Dead excerpt from “M1 A1” was pumping out of the store as I walked past and I just couldn’t resist …….. well I resisted a bit because Tribal had such a great selection of music and I like to browse.
Gorillaz comprised a collective of animated characters, Russell, 2D, Noodle & Murdoc and was a real departure for 2D, alias, Damon Albarn. It heralded a new age for the Blur frontman as he went from project to project adding his Midas touch wherever he went. Gorillaz is an eclectic mix of Hip Hop, Electro, Pop Dub Reggae and Punk …. and cartoons. As Clint Eastwood once said, ” It’s a biggaro ting Jah!” …… the future is coming on
What ever happened to dear old Damon?
Pyrography article in Outback Magazine
My story on Well’s Crossing artist & pyrographer, Peter Drewett has been published in this month’s “Outback Magazine“. I wrote a blog piece about Peter a few months ago and it’s good to see all the hard work come to fruition. The article is also great exposure for Peter and his fantastic 100 Walking Stick project. The project is now complete and Peter is looking exhibit his work, they make an impressive collection so if you know of a gallery that might be interested please get in touch.

The red cliffs of Cligga Head on Cornwall’s North coast
One of the best ways to explore the Cornish coast is by kayak and St Agnes-based Koru Kayaking offer an inexpensive way to discover some hidden treasures. Tom & Hetty Wildblood, who launched Koru earlier this year, offer a variety of kayak tours off the North Coast, around the Lizard Peninsular and exploring the Fal River and estuary.
I grew up in St Agnes and lived there most of my life but I’d never explored the coastline like I did recently with Koru. We were blessed with beautiful weather, calm seas and low tides and the rugged coast between Trevaunance Cove and the rusty red cliffs of Cligga Head was at it’s stunning best. We paddled past Star Rock, Trevellas, Green Island, through the archway to Hanover Cove and explored the geological wonders of The Prism …. the colours of the rocks around here have to be seen to be believed . It was a real eye-opener for a local lad.
I’ll let the photos do the talking but if you ever get the chance, do it! I can’t recommend highly enough, it’s truly some of the most stunning scenery I’ve seen anywhere

Today, ShelterBox celebrates World Humanitarian Day. Being a Humanitarian simply means caring for other human beings and doing what you can to help.
Below is a short video put together by the Communications team at ShelterBox International with footage I shot on a deployment to Brazil in 2011 with Jodie Hurt.
I have an article on ShelterBox published in the latest edition of “Humaneity Magazine” It features images from several of my deployments, including Haiti, Indonesia, Brasil and Italy.
Humaneity is an organisation aimed at people who want to “give back” and make the world a better place. “Humaneity welcomes everyone, all levels of Educational Institutions –Corporates – Parents – NGO’s – Social Enterprises – Professors – Sportspeople and Sports Associations – Governments – Policymakers – Individuals”
Humaneity aims “to educate, inspire, and to motivate individuals and organizations to make a positive difference in the world as we continue to build our global community.”
