Well, the album's finally out and the video finished. A few festivals and then we'll have to knuckle down and write the next one! Happy Sunday all. x
 
If You Like That - Design
Something for a Sunday morning!
My darling wife Helen, Rob Parry and Simon Barber performing a fantastic track from their new album, Black Marker Red Marker, at The Eastville Project in Yeovil. Amazing lighting installation by Gavin Morris, filmed by James Thornton of Follow The Sun. 
Listen to, or buy, the album here ▶ designtheband.uk
Design have a busy schedule of gigs coming up, including Bristol, Exeter and the 100 Club in London.
May will see them travelling to New York for Popfest.
They'll also be playing a set of songs from Simon's hit 80s indie band, The Chesterfields, with Andy Strickland of The Loft.

A world first. Dinosaur Roar Hangout with +Paul Stickland !
 
Dinosaur Roar Hangout!
This wednesday at 8.00pm GMT, I'll be joining +BIG FUN Education, +Annabelle Howard and +Azlin Bloor to read and show you a brand new special presentation of my children's book Dinosaur Roar!

It's part of a great new initiative from non-profit +BIG FUN Education to share the joy of reading without borders here on G+.
I'll be showing you some of the behind the scenes aspects of creating a children's book and I'm happy to discuss any of your questions.
There will be links to free downloads and resources for teachers and parents alike.
Please do come and join us! 
You can find the event details here:  plus.google.com/u/0/events/ccfvp63gsq3jsq9hab8d6g5skeg

There's always so much to see on G+ but these really caught my eye. Take a look.
 
So took part in my 2nd Infinity ITS event today did okay, 4th over all which is nice and can safely say I enjoyed myself a lot.

Still need to get more miniatures painted though :/

Some pictures of the tables today before people got going.  The paper terrain, crates, stacks of crates etc were done by me.

Thanks to a few of the guys +Adam Pattenden , +Lee Russ , +Darren Ivey , +Peter Acs .

I'll share this for you +Tamara Pruessner !
 
Hooked

I have noticed a huge drop in comments/plusses with most of my photography here and I think I know why.  I think it is because I have been so non-interactive lately.  (Or at least I hope that is it... LOL!)

So, today, I am going to try my best to be more interactive, comment more, plus more.  I want to try a few weeks of this and see if anything changes.  I am going to do my dangest to get to everyone who comments on this photo, or any of my other photos, and check out their profile and latest post.  

Spammers... that just means I get to block you sooner.  ;)

Yes, I gave up with it too because it feels like you are talking to yourself and also I've stopped for lack of time. I lied G+ at the begining when there were very few people in my circles ... seemed more intimate:)

Unmanned aircraft, or 'drones' have attracted controversy for their military use, but they are now taking off everywhere. Charles Arthur investigates ... and attempts to pilot one himself

I must get a copy of The Icelandic Sagas. I think we have one in the bookshop.
 
Hey +Darryl Mouzone​, when are we moving to Iceland?
A modern version of Norse paganism has been gaining popularity in recent years as followers see the stories as metaphors for life not worship of the gods

RIP indeed.
Just been reading his obit on the BBC site - his parents, members of the Labour party are described as "fervent do-gooders" and Ghandi and Cry Freedom are described as "overtly political" and "overlong and sentimental"

Don't know why I bother to read their twaddle...

I'll come back to this one but apparently, I'm James Herbert's (the author) ideal woman. (According to James Herbert). He hasn't seen me for about 10 years though, so possibly no longer the case.

Wonderful childrenswear shop. My daughter Tabitha and I come in here regularly for shoes. Outstanding service and a great selection. Ordering facility also available. Absolutely spot-on range of gifts and beautifully-made offbeat quality children's clothing and accessories.
