My Year With Roald Dahl

Day 1:

I was introduced to a software monster called…

Ti.Me - OST

Hello everyone!

Consider this my second blog since being a freelancer. So far its going ok.

The Best of all Possible Worlds? - Graig Du Theatre Players

Our moral arbiters are so keen to see a perceived threat to peoples' well-being when there is none. It has become the norm in what is supposed to be a democracy to take offence at the least slight when a small minority need to be protected against the majority. The recent news that the Lord's Prayer advert has been banned by cinemas is only to be expected. Who exactly is humiliated or offended that it has to be withdrawn? The country has been in such a moral decline that it is…

Snowdon - Wales is a wonder...

Somebody sent me this great photo of Wales from outer space i really love how you can see all of the landscape, valleys and mountains. You can see how impassable mid-wales can be and why the roads twist and turn. 

You can also see how easy it is to be up a mountain, on a beach or walking in a forest...National Theatre Wales…
