The cold is returning, the hour change has occured, the sunlight has changed temperature and i can’t figure out when I need a coat and when I dont – Yep – She’s back and her big ugly sister will be following soon!

It is amazing how beautiful things are in autumn. The colours are always amazing.

Swept away

Under Wall Swept

Feel like I’m about to be swept away by the invisible force that is stress, frustration and sheer lack of motivation – a toxic c**ktail of non-work biased feelings that are growing and growing with each moment of this month.

Yes i said month.

It’s not like we have just been having a bad day in the office – it’s a bad month.

God I pray that you would help me though this as i feel i’m gonna crack

This is the After shot

The garage did a really great job. I was very glad to get our car back and to be rid of the “bone shaker“. It did make me realise how heavy a clutch our car has. I know its a 2ltr turbo diesel engine compared to a 1.1ltr petrol but the diff was incredible.

But the winning factor is the GRUNT that our car has over the other! She wins hands down!

Poor Big Dave broke and i helped him get back on the road. My wife Was called this eve by the hothersalls after they found the man in question stranded in the middle of acton. I went out to help. We pushed him round to the lovely marta’s and now we are sat outside having a good chat catching up and a generally good time as one can only have with big dave. His scooter is charging and we’ll soon have him on the road. This is what church is about and i’m loving it.

An Affordable DLSR Rig

This is an affordable DLSR rig by indiSystem. WHile it’s not as pretty as the Redrock Micro or Zacuto Systems, it still holds a good level of versatility and most importamtly at a fraction of the cost. I would like to see them to expand it out to have Monitor/Battery and weighted mounts.

I really want a video capable DSLR and one of these rigs!

Double Twist

iTunes is a great MP3 player but it comes with a lot of bloated software that alot of people don’t want/need/use. It also will only let you use an iPod or iPhone to sync to.

DoubleTwist Website

I just found DoubleTwist which is an alternative that has all the pros of iTunes but none of the cons. I don’t own an iPhone – I don’t want to own an iphone. I love my nokia and believe in a lot of ways it out performs apple’s offering but i do want to be able to sync my phones content with ease. I think i will be downloading this later today and installing and ridding my machine of iTunes messiness.
