Today I made my first geocache, Its a nice an easy one to find.

Coordinates are up on my blog and the geocaching site.

Good luck!
Hidden in the undergrowth of Galleywood, deep in the heart of the village lies the Copenhagen Micro. You’ll have to look hard for it, and it won’t be where you expect.

Climate Change is something that's always talked about, but we brush it off as not affecting us, but was 2014 the year of no return?

It's getting closer to Christmas and everyone's getting in the festive swing. This week the CIA's torture report has exploded, there's been face-sitting outside parliament, and how about turning your shed into a pub?
Here I am making the debut of Great Scott!, a collection of some of the most interesting, amusing and quirky things that have either happened or I’ve stumbled upon in the past week. For our first week I’m kicking off with lasers, face sitting in parliament... #facesitting #henryhoover #nativity

Do you write to be read, or is it something more than that?
Why do you write? Is it to be read? Is it to earn appreciation? I find the answer is a little deeper; to tell a story. I’ve had quite a few blogs before I started writing this one. I used to write about all sorts of topics, from tech to politics, even a local community …

Freezing fog is really damn awesome, although were unlikely to get it here in the UK
 
This is what happens when Ithaqua gets insomnia and starts roaming the land.
We’ve all heard of freezing fog, but it’s not something Ireland, with our mild winters, often sees.

"I view approval as when someone determines your value but belief means that you are already valued."
In my experience teaching is more than just content knowledge, more than pedagogical knowledge, more than behaviour management. Do we think an effective teacher emerges from following a set of procedures and/or explicit instr...

Great atmosphere, good selection of ales, friendly staff and an appetising menu. Just a little tricky to get to, but a great pub.
