Just Passing Through 

I'm well aware that I have been neglecting the world of Blogging for far too long. Unfortunately my normal excuse will prevail; as usual work is taking far too much of my time,our product is undergoing user acceptance testing and myself and a couple of others are busily cleaning up all the bugs that we know about, in readiness for cleaning up the bugs that the customer finds.

Fun it is not as some of these things are darned obscure and hard to pin down, especially the one that asks for the 10th character of a 9 character password. It should be easy to find but it isn't. It only occurs under some very strange browser conditions that we haven't managed to pin down yet.

Ho Hum, I'll say back to work in a minute or so but I just want to leave you with a couple of things:

1. A link to some pictures that I took whilst we were in York just after Easter. I'm a bit disappointed with the way they turned out, but the short holiday break was great.

2. It seems that I'm linking to a blog run by a prospective Member of Parliament for the forthcoming election; go and give Alfie your messages of support. I can do better than that because I can give him my vote as he is standing in my constituency. Go on Alfie, give the lying labour scum and the rest of the mainstream parties a bloody nose.

A Belated Easter Update 

Over Easter we had a pretty busy time in the garden, weeding, digging over the future area for our raised vegetable beds, pond cleaning and a bit of remedial landscaping. All hard work but completely worthwhile especially as we settled down to a celebratory glass of wine and found we had a couple of surprise visitors to our pond:

You can view a couple more photos of our visitors here. They have been back a couple of times since the first visit too.

Strangely no one got any of the music related questions correct, maybe they were too hard, you'll probably kick yourselves when you read the answers, which are:
