Merry Christmas!

I’d like to thank all of you – my blog followers – for taking the time to visit my blog throughout the year, and I’d like to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas!

Rather than publish another photo of me in a Santa costume, (there’s too many of those around already) I thought I’d post one of my photos of the gorgeous Gully’s Girls, Brighton & Hove Albion’s cheerleaders in their Santa costumes instead.

I’m sure you will agree that they are much better looking than me!

 

Gully’s Girls are (left to right) Amanda, Amy, Billie, Katie, Lou, Gail, Alex, Bex, Grace, Laura, Jo, Elleesha, Hannah, April, Ree, Chloe, Tayla, and Kate.

Published Fox Photos

These two photographs of the foxes feeding in our back garden have just been published in the BBC’s Wildlife magazine, dated January 2012.  They illustrate an article about how feeding urban foxes gives people an opportunity to see the year-round behaviours of these magnificent creatures.

The first photo was used as a large one and a half page spread, while the second was used as a smaller inset, and illustrates the do’s and don’ts of feeding foxes.

The magazine is available from all good magazine shops priced at just £3.80

QR Codes – a nifty idea!

Scan me with your Smartphone

This little beastie on the right is a QR code – it’s rather like a bar code on steroids, but it can hold a lot more information than a regular barcode. If you have a bar code reader app on your Smartphone, try scanning it.

If you don’t have a QR code reader, you can get one free from RedLaser (the Red Laser app is awesome – it saved us fifty quid when we bought our steam iron!) or from  Kaywa – although I’ve not used it.

This QR code example is – as you may guess – a shameless plug for this website, but I’m sure that you catch my drift to see how it works.

I think that there will be quite a few uses for this in the future.  Neat, eh? What do you think?

If you want a QR code, you can get your own codes for free here.

So, how did Red Laser save us fifty quid on a steam iron?  Well, our last steam iron had given up the ghost, and we needed a powerful steam iron to steam the creases out of my photographic backdrops – as well as out of our clothes.  I fell in love with a steam generator iron in Comet, but it cost a staggering £150.

I scanned the bar code on the box with Red Laser, which promptly told me that I could buy the same thing at Argos – just three miles away – who had it on offer for fifty pounds less! Comet wouldn’t price match, so off we went to save fifty quid!
