Realised I never did do an so here it is (in a couple of parts)

Pretty much the same as my bio I guess.

I make - I used to make but mostly within and certain social media sites that take video. That's both my passion and (lucky for me) my job. Can bore people for hours about video and

Done one or two as I used to be a BBC News gallery director

My husband took this photo in 2020, it shows Comet Neowise over the Longstone at Mottistone on the .
We have wonderful dark skies here which really helped. We made the walk up to the neolithic monument late at night which was really magical. I was given a torch and duly light painted the Longstone with it whilst my husband snapped away.
We had our teenage son with us and once we had the shot we sat down and stargazed.

If you get cold this winter remember, winding up a brexit voter, or a maga one, generates a lot of free hot air

@alexwinter Twitter’s not the product. “If you’re not paying for something, then you’re the product.” Either you’re a popular account creating free content for him to draw in the crowds, or you’re eyeballs and a wallet he can sell to advertisers. It’s not a public square, it’s Elon’s circus now.
The Fediverse is closer to a public square, with different communities occupying different areas. Pick a loud busy part, or a quiet bit with more rules, or build a new part with friends.

#GreatAlbums1970s: #FleetwoodMac#Penguin (1973). Christine McVie leads things off with the California cool of “Remember Me” and gets in “Dissatisfied” before the boys start throwing ideas at the walls to see what sticks. Ex-Savoy Brown Dave Walker is too much of a blunt instrument to replace the sorely missed Danny Kirwan, and Bob Welch, who can write a bit, barely expels enough air to move the VU meters. A low point for the Mac.

Today’s poem is called ‘Reach Out to Me’.

WARNING: contains sexy business speak.

I said that Mastodon moderation wouldn't scale, I was wrong. The cultural differences will likely continue to maintain a friendlier atmosphere regardless of size.

Mention of death 

Saddened to hear of Christine McVie's death. Many remember Fleetwood Mac for the incredible Rumours album, but it was an old LP of my uncle's (Penguin) that my brother and I uncovered at our grandparents' house that introduced me. It was at some point in the eighties, then I went out to buy Tango in the Night which I loved for both the music and the cover art.

Apparently, it’s rude to poke someone in the forehead and say, “skip intro,” when they start talking to you.
