Arsenal (not the team) part one

So after Kickstarting this little box of tricks what feels like a long time ago, I recently got notification of despatch. This is a first thoughts review of Arsenal: The Intelligent Camera Assistant. The main web site for this is https://witharsenal.com/ I guess the first thing to note, and a key factor in what might be... Continue Reading →

Ancestry and GDPR

One of the perennially interesting discussions at Druid Camp is ancestry and the ancestors. Druidry largely concerns itself with relationships of all kinds, with human people and non-human people, with awareness of landscape and season and cycle, but there is a tripartite feature on ancestors that inspires and embraces those relationships. Within (at least, modern)... Continue Reading →

Druid Camp 2018

So here I am, home again from Druid Camp. A simple name for a complex community gathering, and one I've been going to for around twenty years now. This year, for the first time, because of (well) stuff, I've been directly involved in it all as part of the core team, alongside Mark Graham. But... Continue Reading →

Activism, Druidry and Mission Lifeforce

It's possible that will impact my account at Blipfoto too,... Continue Reading →

...there was an election in the offing. And there is, and I don't mean the one that's ever more likely regarding the incompeten... I mean incumbent in Drowning Street. Managing a message board is never easy. I've been online since before the Internet and often spent all night chatting in various bulletin boards, long before... Continue Reading →

Charfield Burial Ground

  I was working up at the burial ground the other day. Charfield's burial ground, which opened spring equinox 2012, is potentially the thing I'm most proud of as a parish councillor. It was the need for a new burial ground in the village that first called me to volunteer with the Council, back in... Continue Reading →

Designing Roads…

I'm not a civil engineer nor a highways engineer, but I'm sat in the middle of a village where we're probably due to double in size in the next decade, and the main and only through road is historically narrow and crossed by a railway line with a blind bended hump backed bridge. Traffic is... Continue Reading →
