Party 2015

Well the festival season has kicked off with Troyfest 2015 at Baskerville Hall Hotel in Powys. I voluntered along with my best friend Neil. It was one amazing festival, and the atmosphere was really great, and the people were really great as well (volunteers, security and festival goers)

Then last weekend was my 40th Birthday Weekend - really let my self go for that one (thanks to Neil, Jamie and Skinner for making my 40th one to remember!)

Got more festivals to go to as a volunteer, and as interviewer for my show and Bro Radio

So far coming up is....

Lunar Festival (volunteer)
Nozstock (reporter/interviewer)

With the above in mind, I've decided one thing... to live life to its fullest, party and enjoy my self.  With all my aches and pains and other problems, I have to learn to live with them, and not let them dictate what I can do.  I can't live life wrapped up in cotton wool in a box marked fragile, I have to live life out side the box and enjoy it while I can.

I fear I may end up turning in to a party animal... but its time I lived life and dug my self out from the cushions of the sofa and stop being a couch potato.

A few years back I was getting out for walks, and that is one thing I must get back in to the habbit of.

Life is for the living, and I must get on with it and live it.

 


LUNAR FESTIVAL was just fantastic. Lots of great acts including the Radiophonic Workshop. This is one festival I will be volunteering at next year

NOZSTOCK took place 24th to the 26th July. It was a great festival, some fantastic acts including Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer, De La Soul and the main headliner for me Martha Reeves & The Vandellas. It was a bit wet and muddy though, but that didn't dampen things too much

#Brexit 2 month's away

#BREXIT isn’t far off, but Mrs. May’s plan crashed out during a vote in Parliament.
At the moment lots of companies are planning on moving from the UK, and those that are staying are planning on scaling back.
UK regions such as Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland would have been entitled to a 22 per cent raise in support from the EU under the budget plans for the 2021-2027 period, up from the €10.6 billion or £9.3 billion that the UK receives in the current 2014-2020 budget package, according to the report, by a network association of European regions.
This funding loss will be most keenly felt in two regions: Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, and West Wales and the Welsh Valleys. These are classed as ‘less developed regions’, and currently receive most of the UK’s regional funding.
The UK must not crash out with a #NoDealBrexit , it would be far better for one of these to happen: 1: #Remain 2: #ThePeoplesVote 3: stay in the #CustomsUnion 4: enter a #NorwegianStyleBrexit

UK and the EU

So the people on the UK have had the vote, to 'remain' in or 'leave' the EU... the vote was a close one to leave, which has caused no end of problems.

The pound has lost value, companies have decided to ditch the UK and its workers and shift to other countries, Scotland want to go it alone and Northern Ireland wants to reunite with Eire and leave the UK.

David Cameron is to stand down (....no real loss there then!), Jeremy Corbyn won't stand down from Labour even though he cabinet is jumping ship.

One thing that Labour said during it's 'leave' campaign was that the NHS was to get an extra £350m a week... which they now say 'sorry this won't happen' a out and out lie from them then - which when people saw this made people vote

Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood said in Cardiff earlier today 'We have to hold the leave campaigners to the vow they made during the EU campaign, including an extra £350m for the NHS every week.
We need to make sure the …

Car Battery Problem

Went out to start the car the other day and discovered the battery was flat. Had the break down out, the jump started  the car with no problem (so that ruled out the starter motor and solenoid). I put a multi meter on it and it was putting close to 14.7v in (so not alternator)

I sat with car running to put charge in the  battery. I disconnected the negative lead, checked what the battery was holding 12.85v. The breakdown person said to perform a parasitic draw test, so I did that and found no problem.
Was told to leave negative lead disconnected, the battery should hold its charge with that lead disconnected. Went out the following morning and it had lost charge again, it had dropped down to 12.08v. Just managed to start the car, went for a longish drive. I then disconnected the positive as well, just in case. This morning it was at 12.42v
Took the battery to Euro Car Parts for them to put it on a drop test. Had replacement battery.
This is a useful guide:
12.65V - 100% good 12.45V -…
