Big Bag of Herbs and Spice

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

Since my vague plan to finally go to Dragonmeet failed (again) this year I made a somewhat easier journey to Mattas in Liverpool to restock my herb and spice cupboard.  I’ve a big bag full of herbs and spice sitting in my kitchen waiting to be put away including… Basil Chilli Powder Chinese Five Spice […]

Il Forno and The Informant

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Oh dear looks like I need to get my grumpy hat out for both Il Forno and The Informant… Went to Il Forno on Duke Street in Liverpool for dinner before going to see the early evening showing of The Informant at FACT.  Things started well with quick service and an excellent swordfish tart starter […]

Fantastic Mr Fox

Friday, November 20th, 2009

Fanstastic Mr Fox is probably my favourite Roald Dahl children’s story.  So today I decided I’d go and see it at the Odeon in Liverpool 1 and crossed my fingers they’d not treated the source material as a slum clearance job it like Disney did with Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

Tonight I’ve added a page to my web site about Wessex Games’ Aeronef – at the moment it is an article I wrote for Ragnarok War Kites and Flying Batteries.

Ingredients 8 Lamb Chops 2 tbsp Vegetable Oil 2 Onions 2 cloves of garlic chopped 400g Tin of Chopped Tomatoes 2 Green Peppers 1 Red Pepper 2 tsp Crushed Coriander […]

Videos now on YouTube

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

Various test animations I’ve made are now on the impworks YouTube channel. I’ve been back to the posts they come from and added the embeded videos in. One day I may make a video that lasts a little bit longer than these tiny little things do.

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

I don’t have a lot of Vue free stuff other than my python scripts but I’ve started a new section tonight to make it easier to find without digging through the blog.
