Between one thing and another I've had a lower than usual profile on the OC. I've been reading posts, but not commenting much and not posting either. 😮 …
So here we go with some specific randomness to get things up to date.
Way back at the beginning of August I made my annual pilgrimage to the Stradbally Steam Rally. I took some photos,
Plenty more in the album.
I also shot some videos
You can see the rest on my YouTube channel.
Then just before school started up Mam and I took a little trip out to the West Coast. We saw the Cliffs of Moher from a sea tour. Very different view than from the top.
And the next day we went on down to Foynes to see the Flying Boat Museum.
You guessed it, more in the album.
Along with my real life travels I've been wandering on the web as well. Have you ever come across an unusual article on Wikipedia? Have you ever wanted to? Because, handily, Wikipedia has a list of them. (You have to scroll down to get to the links themselves, but if you do there's enough to keep you busy for weeks.)
I referred to myself as the phantom and for a while I really did look the part. I got shingles about a month ago. That was a real misery. Imagine a very bad dose of flu combined with being constantly stung with nettles. 😦 And the right side of my face from brow to collar bone broke out in a rash.
Well, maybe not that bad. But it was red and swollen and flaking and at one point my earlobe was the size of a grape.
I'm recovered now, though I still get spells of itching / pins and needles around my eye.
My little nephew is doing well, he just turned three months. Which makes him 1/160th of my age. :faint:
Finally, a couple of songs that caught my ear since the last time I did a music related post.
And something that I'm kicking myself for missing, since Steven Fry was also a guest.
