|2237||Taking a pride in the community|
How do you encourage young people to take a pride in their community, rather than engaging is antisocial behaviour? By encouraging their inclusiveness and by providing them with facilities.
Lisa and I took a short train trip yesterday, and found ourselves at the station with eye-catching silhouettes ...
|929||Presenting Melksham - for a weekend away in Wiltshire|
I do my best presentations when under pressure. ((Important NOTE to wife / staff / cat - DON'T pressure me every morning)). By which I mean that a new presentation or one I'm not quite prepared for even though I know my subject can, I think, sparkle with a freshness that's not there if it's been wellprepared ...
|1930||Bath Christmas Market|
We went down into Bath on the bus yesterday ... intending just to do a cinema trip, but the day was lovely and we had a look around the Christmas market.
Food and Drink stalls mixed in with stalls selling Christmas nicknacks, which extended around the cathedral and up to the market hall.
See here ...
|1851||Pictures from a delegate|
Conversation from last week: "I'm taking pictures because I've never been in this area, but why are YOU taking pictures" - a delegate on my course. "Because it's a beautiful area and I take a lot of pictures" - my reply. Mikkel has sent me a link to his pictures, and I told him while he was with ...
We're into Autumn, and on a blustery Sunday we went out to show Chris's mother in law, visiting from South Africa, some of the local scenes in Wiltshire, and Bath and North East Somerset (BaNES).
The hardier souls were out in the countryside - a handful of boats moving on the canal, fishermen, cyclists ...
What's inside this little building that sits over a back water of the River Avon just a few miles up river from Bath?
A 25 foot wide water wheel, with each scoop on the wheel taking no less than half a ton of water [background], and a set of full functioning gears and flywheel - the whole being fully ...
|1662||Westonbirt Arboretum Postcode|
The postcode for Westonbirt Arboretum is GL8 8QS.
Why am I putting that on my blog? Because I was woken this morning - and not for the first time - by a phone call and a voice asking "what's the postcode of the Arboretum?". One of the hazards on having a strong online presence is that you'll come ...
|1611||Gauging point at entrance to Bristols Floating Harbour|
What is a "GAUGE POINT"? This curious contraption is set on the point where the River Avon forks as it comes up into Bristol from Avonmouth - to the left is the true course of the river and to the right is the entrance lock at Cumberland Basin to the floating harbour.
There are two gauge point devices ...
|1612||Comfy Chair - Floating Harbour, Bristol|
Just occasionally, I get a few minutes to sit and relax ... and just occasionally I hand my camera to someone else to use so that I can appear in front of the camera rather than behind it. Here - it's rare - is one of those occasions where both happened at the same time. ...
|958||Plain Ole nice pictures|
It's a while since I put up some really nice pictures, for the sake of being picture. So here are three taken this week - daytime Tuesday, evening Wednesday and dawn Thursday. Locations are Swindon, Bath and Melksham.
|848||Bath - a tourist city on our doorstep|
August Bank holiday - and a day out on Sunday revealed busy roads in the extreme; best to explore somewhere local. This summer, we've not travelled any great distances - not because we're looking to avoid all the chaos that's been going on at the airports, but because of 'the Manor project' that I mention ...
|824||Pictures of Avebury, Longleat and Dyrham|
It's summer in Wiltshire, and in spite of being rushed off our feet with training (open source stuff), training (trying to save the local train service), and refurbishing a B&B into a hotel, we've both had a few chances to get out and take some pictures. This morning, I've spend a few minutes ...
Spring is in the air, the days are getting longer and there are some great photos around! On Sunday afternoon, down in Bath, I was snapping away and I've added a few more local area pages to the Wiki - see the Royal Crescent and Farleigh Hungerford Castle for example.
Some scenes just don't fit into ...
