I’ve always loved a magazine. The above film reminds me of when I was 10 years old standing on the front door step, waiting in anticipation for the postman to deliver the monthly Young Ornithologist Club magazine and if my memory serves me correctly, it was called Bird Life, which I’d subscribed to. I love the fact that I can pick a mag up, say in my dentists waiting room and casually flick through it, stopping at an article, or photo/image that catches my eye, to settling down on the sofa reading the whole damn thing from front to back and back again.
The DJ in me said I should include this band, a favourite of mine from the late 70’s early 8os, in this post. A very poignant track too, considering the weather the UK is experiencing at the moment. I also like this tracks Northern Soul sensibility.

My attempt at taking a few photos of the lunar eclipse whilst in Sicily. I had difficulty manually focusing and achieving a sharp image (could do with a few tips) – all this automatic ting and ting makes ya lazy!
I’ve been away, which is the reason for the lack of posts, but now I’m having computer nightmares. I’m hoping to be up to full speed shortly.
In the mean time, here’s a photo I took, with my iPhone, of a familiar face hanging in the reception of a hotel, we stayed at, in Catania Sicily. Any idea who it might be?
