All about the Old School

So far this week has very much had a retro feel to it which is a tad odd since we’ve just started a new year, but I’m not a “new year” kinda guy anyway. While I’m ploughing forward with new projects and gusto I’ve found three things that have made me more interested in looking […]

Frozen and Flickr

Around here it’s nearly zero and covered in snow. I decided to spend the day integrating Flickr. [photo was lost to time…] If you take a look in the right-hand column of my blog (under Twitter) you should see two of my latest Flickr photos.
