Just a quick post to note that we’re now back from a fantastic week in Wales. Lived at Poppit Sands for a week, appeared in a Shakespeare play and fell out of a coracle into a mill pond. All brilliant. Flat out at work. Going to write more soon..
So I’ve gotten hooked on (yet another) social network. Instagram. I love taking photos and have often invested unhealthy volumes of time experimenting and attempting to make photos look different – eg buying a camera from Russia, buying out of date (“dead-stock”) film off ebay, taking a bunch of photos with it and having it cross processed. Instagram takes years… Read more →

Good T-Shirt Adventuring! Ben and Claire took a DragonDrop Adventure Shirt, hired a massive V8 and drove around the good bits of West USA. Here’s a few pics from their adventure, featuring Ben (top) Yosemite National Park, (mid left) Las Vegas (baby), (mid right) Death Valley (obviously) and (bottom) the lovely Claire in a 5.8 Litre, V8, 450bhp muscle car….

StarWars fans should instantly recognise the above as the place where The Millennium Falcon was parket at Mos Eisley Space Port before she set off. Well – technically, this isn’t Docking Bay 94, it’s Western Sunderland Hangar in Pembrokeshire, Wales. What’s that got to do with The Millenium Falcon I hear you ask.. Well, (I hear me tell) it’s where… Read more →
What a splendid festival that was. I’ll get the hick-ups out the way first up – the main one being the lack of main stage drum kit early doors, having a knock on effect (combined with a couple of other factors*), resulting in the Friday headline act – Croak Ditch – couldn’t play. Gutted about that, but that aside, a… Read more →
I love summer. It’s my favourite day of the year (boom boom!). This summer (as featured over the weekend we’ve just had) was a peach. Blue skies and hot. We were so happy that we’d arranged to go camping. Our destination was How Stean Gorge near the top of Nidderdale. A gorgeous place with a beautiful gorge and cave system running alongside… Read more →
I was invited to play at a recorded session last night for ‘BBC Introducing’ with Jenny Eells at BBC Radio York station studio 1 with a friends band: Lobo. Introducing is a show that spotlights new / unsigned bands – some really cool stuff on there. The show goes out this Saturday at 20:00 and will be available on the… Read more →
I pretty much squeezed my whole weekend into one day. I was up at the crack of dawn and deep in in the Dales first thing on Saturday – dropping Jaygo off for a Scout challenge called Tohunga. Whilst I was in the area I thought I’d go for a walk with Elsie (a dog). As the river was close to… Read more →
A bumper double crop month in the DragonDrop Adventure Shirt section – there’s one from me in Lanzarote and this one: – Simon at The Segesta Temple in Sicily.
I’m going to leave this as one of them let the pictures do (most of) the talking blogs. Suffice to say we had a fantastic time in Lanzarote. The Hotel was fantastic, the island, incredible. A good time was had by all of us and it ticked the boxes of exactly what we had in mind for a holiday and… Read more →
Got x5 minutes left of internet in the hotel internet cafe I’m in, so thought I’d use it to blat a quick DD update.. We’re staying at a lovely hotel, weather has been OK – rained for 10 mins this morning then blue sky. Yesterday was amazing – we hired a car and went on an adventure to look at… Read more →
Jaygo by a canal in Goole, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. If you put Goole into Google it comes back with Google. If you click the search instead for Goole, it comes back with a bunch of info on an inland port in the East Riding of Yorkshire. We went there yesterday to visit Felix’s friend and family. Had a lovely… Read more →
So my friend / m’collegue Kath said she was going to Australia to see her lovely daughter Lauren (who’s bf is pictured on the last DD Adventure Shirt). She offered to take a shirt for The World Famous DragonDrop adventure shirt gallery. Now – I’d highlighted that the general rule of thumb is to get yourself photo’d wearing (or in… Read more →
