Last week I saw a picture on Twitter of St. Edwards Church in Stow-on-the-Wold, it looked like something out of a fairy-tale so I did some research and found out some people think it was the inspiration for Tolkien’s entrance to Moria! The next day I headed for Stow-on-the-Wold and took some pictures of the church, after this it occurred to me that I lived in the middle of Tolkien country and there must be lots of places nearby that inspired Tolkien’s stories. So finding Middle Earth has become my project over the winter, I’ll be travelling around trying to take some fantasy style pictures of Tolkienesque places, maybe I’ll spot some Hobbits on my journey, I just wish I had a grey wizard to guide me.
MCM Comiccon November 2017 was my first comiccon since hospital and I wasn’t sure if it would be too exhausting or if I would feel ill so I just booked one day and hoped for the best.
MCM Comic Con Birmingham was my first convention of the year, the convention tends to be smaller than the later ones with less A-list guests, it’s a good way of easing into the year for me.
First off this post contains spoilers, I will mark when they start, don’t read beyond that point it if you haven’t seen Rogue One yet! I hadn’t been to the cinema since Captain America Civil War last year, there are various reasons, not having the right carer at the right time, anxiety of being closed[…]
So the year didn’t start well, a lack of care staff, being treated badly by people I thought were friends or at least cared about me, loss and things generally going badly in 2015. I made a decision to take control of things, sort out my health as best as possible
As an early Christmas present Mum bought me tickets to Marvel Universe Live, it would be my first time at a real show, I’ve been to the local theatre once but never something big at an arena, I’ve always been concerned about access and whether or not these things are worth the effort and planning.
Here is my Flash MCM London 2016 Cosplay I will be attending on the Sunday as The Flash, this is a taster of what I will look like.
I have been doing a little experimentation on getting NASA World Wind inside WordPress as it’s not as easy as simply pasting the code from Web World Wind into a page, that’s not to say it’s hard, it just requires a little research.
I worked closely with the NASA WorldWind team when they were using Microsoft’s .NET, things have changed and evolved since then but Patrick Hogan still manages the project, he’s a good guy who I can now call a friend as well as colleague, this is an exciting opportunity for anyone with the skills required and[…]
Another Sunday and my weekly chance to get out of bed and visit somewhere, this time I decided on Birmingham Thinktank science museum.
Another Sunday outing, this time to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, It was my first time up in the chair since before Christmas and I knew an hours journey each way plus time in the museum was probably pushing it but with the current care situation I have to make the most of any chance I get to go out.
