Royal Wedding



I watched the Royal Wedding live...I didn't intend watching ALL of it especially the service, but I just couldn't move away from the television, it was compulsive :-) I think it was sooo good for people in our country. All we have seen on television are bad things, this was amazing watching so many people enjoying themselves instead of protesting and fighting.It was fun reading the comments on fb, especially the ones about Prince Harry (Williams's brother) and the chief Bridesmade, the bride's sister!

Fantastic digital HD coverage, the last Royal Wedding relied on 625 line analogue colour television. The strange thing about all this is that the technology gave the whole world satellite HD coverage. Many millions of people aroung the world are watching...but the production remains the same. It looks the same now as it did in the 1950's!


Sweden covered their Royal Wedding last year, but the coverage was much more intimate including coverage of the reception. Maybe it is time for us to be a bit more liberal and less reserved!

Barbeque weather...in April?



What a fantastic Easter Holiday! Super weather and now another holiday....the Royal Wedding and then Mayday! The weather has been unbelievable, wall to wall sunshine for over two whole weeks...never seen it like this...and its still April!


Gosh...I remember going to Drayton Manor Radio Rally this week many years ago it started off sunny, then as we drove down the M6 it snowed and the motorways were blocked. Drayton Manor Rally had marquees for the outdoor events and most of the dealers got stuck in the snow!


Yes...we have had lots of barbys in the last few weeks...now what about Summer?
