Music

Every year since 2010 I have created a playlist of tunes that I’ve really liked and played heavily during the year. I do this on a variety of platforms but mainly on Apple Music and Youtube.

If you’re interested here is the Youtube playlist for this year….

I add to them regularly so if you do like them, feel free to add them to your saved lists etc…always fun to discuss music with people.

Picture of the Day: South Stack Lighthouse, Anglesey [2011]

House of lies – that building isnt light, it weighs a ton

I love lighthouses. When I was a child people would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up. Having consumed an unhealthy amount of Enid Blyton, Portland Bill and sea mysteries my answer was always a Lighthouse Keeper. 

I fancied (and still do) being the stereo typical lighthouse keeper – growing a beard in my old age, wearing a white sweater and a cap, smoking a pipe and telling gullible children and their dog about stolen treasure hidden in caves.

Sadly, nobody told me all British lighthouses were subjected to an automation program that began in 1973 and the lighthouse keeper of yore was rapidly becoming a job similar to today’s milkman, fax machine sales person or  VHS repairman. But hey, I don’t hold much of a grudge….

Anyway, this is South Stack near Holyhead in Anglesey. Its a right rugged place to get to out but amazing views and thrilling scenery. Mrs Gnomepants V2.0 and I went there in 2011 for what became our traditional Easter break.
