Delia Derbyshire was the person that actually played the original Dr Who theme and now they’ve found recordings of other music she made whilst at the BBC. This includes a dance track 20 years ahead of it’s time! What better person to interview about this than Paul Hartnoll of Orbital.Can’t wait until more of her recordings are made public.Shared with Flock – The Social Web Browserhttp://flock.com
We’ve just taken ownership of Julie’s “new car”. It’s a 2005 Saturn and one thing we noticed was there was no cigarette lighter. Something I had taken for granted in every car I’ve really been in, even though I don’t smoke.
This got me thinking – what items would my son, now 4 years old, never experience in his day-to-day life that I took for granted.
So I started this list. Anyone have anything else?
- car cigarette lighters
- audio tapes
- video tapes
- rotary phones (and possibly land lines too)
- TV static (all TV’s are due to go digital in 2009)
- longwave radio
We’ve been thinking about “doing our bit” for the environment and this year is when we’ve started.
We went out and got some tote bins to separate the recycling, located the local drop-off point and got going. It’s a pretty simple habit to get into and I was really surprised how much plastic and cardboard we threw away! I’m now only putting out two small binliners for collection on garbage day-this opposed to the two bins plus extra bags I had to haul out every Monday night.
A problem I’ve run into is no one seems to know what to do with all the recyclable plastics marked with anything but a 1 or 2. I’ve contacted the collection company, the State and left a voicemail for the City but nothing. They all think it should go somewhere but just don’t know where. If I find out I’ll post here.
39 years old today. I had a great dinner cooked for me around the in-laws yesterday. Roast beef and Yorkshire puddings along with a couple of Guinness’s.great gift
Julie surprised me tonight with a whole lemon pound cake from Starbucks. I LOVE THIS and always try and get a slice when popping in for a drink.
Now I have to practice self-restraint 🙂

Already 2008 and still no personal rocket-packs. What’s up with that!
So those few readers from last year know that I tried to do one post a day and failed miserably. This year no such promise.
Christmas was very good and we got to see Josh’s excitement after discovering the left-over cookies from Santa and our big present was a Sony video camera (thanks Linda & Jim).
Down side, looks like our fridge/freezer is on the blink. Of course the year’s warranty run out a couple of months ago. Go figure.
