I used to post up images every week of what we're doing, with a bit of an explanation as to the purpose. These days it tends to be more on an annual basis. I collect this stuff and stick it on the Archive page so things can be viewed chronologically.

Chanson de la Semaine

To avoid repeating myself on a weekly basis and lose the interest of our regular fan, I will point you towards Week 68 in the Archive for an explanation of why I am suddenly featuring a piece of music each week. Incidentally, the Archive Pics with a little audio icon on them are the ones which will have this little feature..beginning, of course, with Week 68.

I chose this year's track after hearing from some old uni mates - and it reminded me of some of them. This version is a reworking of an ancient original and was included in a spoof radio program commisioned by the BBC on the 40th anniversary of the Cavern openning. It's called 'The Captain Cried'.

You've probably already seen a blue or yellow band at the top of the page asking if you want to run this program and showing a 'Run Active X' tab. Click on that and then click on 'Run' and a little CD player should open below the song title. Press Play, Stop or Whatever.

The Toolshed Extension

I never thought the renovation process was going to take geological epochs, but, after the intital rush of energy and free time, we've slowed to a mellow saunter. So in this latest epoch we've kitted out the dining room and built our much needed extension. Much needed, because we've hung on to so much crap from England that we're still tripping over it, seven years on.

The Dining Room

This has largely been the drop-the-power-tools-off room. So this year we made an attempt to make sense of the space and create lots of lovely storage. You may have noticed a theme here. Shelves beloved of cats and men in pink 'T' shirts.
