My First Post

Hello world, ‘Hey! It’s me‘. My very first blog post.

I’ve decided to start blogging..Gulp!!

Why you may ask? Well, I’ve loved reading some great blogs from Leeds over the last year, especially Deano Blog and The Culture Vulture, both of which have kinda inspired me to start my own. I’ll start by saying now, it won’t be up their standards…but I can but try.

Local people may recognise my banner image, it’s the lovely Yorkshire coast seaside town of Filey, which I took in Easter 2011 at 2.00am on a secluded beach. It was a magical moment, I didn’t see a soul for the whole time I was there, the other shots are on my Flickr, link also on the left menu.

One thing you’ll find is that I love all ‘GEEKY‘ things, so I apologise now for some of the up-and-coming posts…But! I’ll also be talking about my desire of cooking, my beautiful family, astronomy, film, good design, ..basically everything that interests me and happens in my life. Which is quite a lot, and I’d love to write those memories down.

I bid you my 1st farewell with an image of me, ♥Wifey and my amazing Girlies on the stunning Filey Beach.

A lovely Spring day on Filey Beach with the family

We all have our favourite cinemas from our childhood; some lucky kids had Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on Holly wood Boulevard. Pictured here at the opening of Star Wars in 1977.

In sharp contrast for me, it was The Lyric Picture House on Tong Road in Leeds, built 5 years before Grauman’s in 1922 by Leeds Architects Jones & Continue reading The Lyric Trilogy
