Game of Thrones theme on the harmonica

I've heard a lot of cover versions of the Game of Thrones theme music but never on the harmonica. This is pretty special.

Is it me, or do the Ferengi find it all too easy to overcome Federation technology?
It's a good job they're only interested in profit, not conquest.

In TNG the Ferengi were intended to be the big bad race that the Romulans became. Unfortunately after the ridiculousness of their first episode they were downgraded to a nuisance spieces. So we have a species the writers have been trained to not take seriously, with a potential to cause problems that hasn't been diminished since they were created in '87.

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

This one's been on my "to read" list for a while and I've finally started it. I had no idea it was so short.
A couple of chapters in and it's been riveting so far. The poetry of the language provides an intriguing counterpoint to, but in no way diminishes, the brutality of the violence.
I'm looking forward to rest of it, even though I know already know what's going to happen.

This is a really interesting article.....and has given me a pause for thought! When we were kids we rode our bikes everywhere, ok, that was a long time ago, there wasn't as many cars on the road, and people were a lot more tolerant of each other. We knew the rules, we didn't ride on the pavements, we stopped at lights, we knew how to ride a bike and stay safe (no lids or high vis jackets in the early 70's! ) So when did the attitude towards cycling change? To encourage people to use bikes for everyday activities, as they do in a lot of European countries, the infrastructure has to change. Most roads in the countryside weren't built for cars, they were built for horses and then bikes, the cars were late to the party! It's not just about the lycra clad masses, it's an attitude towards all cycling activities. It's not just the cities that need to invest in cycleways etc, the towns and villages also need to start thinking about how they can integrate cycling into our everyday activities. The cycleway from Westcott to Dorking is brilliant, the 'dual path' (so designated so it can be used for both cyclists and pedestrians) alongside the A25 from Brockham to Dorking isn't! It's 3 miles, 2 miles to the station and one of the high school, from Brockham to Dorking. However the 'dual p ath', is too narrow for both a cyclist and a pedestrian, the camber leans into the road and it's overgrown by nettles and brambles and cyclists take a huge risk cycling along there; an over-hanging bramble, can easily hook into the cyclist and throw them off the bike, and these are usually at face height! The path, for most of the way, has an overgrown verge to the side with woodland beyond and the A25 road is wide, with hatch markings along most of one side and through the centre, which means that this part of the road can't be driven on. The path could be widened, to allow both cyclists and pedestrians to cycle into the town safely and easily; if we want to encourage people to use their cars less for short journeys, to encourage our children to cycle to school in a safe environment, then the towns and villages need to look at the areas they have designated and ensure they are suitable for dual use, not just pay lip service to the idea. The roads that are deemed 'Surrey Cycleways' (and if you look on the Surrey Council website these are 'quiet roads and lanes') should have reduced speed limits for motorised vehicles and cameras to ensure safety for the cyclist, a car overtaking a bike, on a quiet, country lane, with another car coming from the opposite direction, gives the cyclist no place to go, except the ditch! I know most of you reading this will not agree, you'll cite the lycra clad cyclists hogging the road, jumping red lights, and all the other things that they are supposed to do, and some do......but it's not all about the budgie smugglers; cycling to the shops, to the pub, to school, to meet friends for a leisurely cycle ride on a Sunday afternoon, for a family day out, should become part of our lives, the way it used to be......We'd be healthier, live longer, be more positive; kids who cycle to school are more engaged in their learning than the days they don't. To put tacks on a road, to put wire across a trail just beggars belief! How does someone, and not just one person, hate a group of people with such venom that they do something which can injure, quite severely, or potentially kill someone. If cycling was perceived as a usual, everyday activity, then these actions just wouldn't happen.

Couldn't agree more dual pavements are the way forward I think.

Introduction
Occasional word wrangler, sometimes compared to Dexter Morgan and Sheldon Cooper for reasons unknown.
In between raising a family and earning a living, I try to squeeze in as much reading and writing as I can, which is never enough.
Part of my job is to write the company blog for printware.co.uk and a couple of my articles have been published in a magazine. Apparently, you can make printers sound interesting.
One day, I'd like to earn a full time living from writing, so I can live somewhere warm, drink coffee and make things up.
Always curious about the universe, I particularly enjoy reading about history and science. I also have an inexplicable fascination for pygmy hippos.
Bragging rights
Probably the only person in the world with an MRes in Plant Genetics and a CeMAP certificate. Read War and Peace.
