Where have all the bloggers gone...

Evening Bloggerati,

well the weather here is finally turning towards winter. It's been a bit crazy with it being so mild that there are still leaves on the trees and I actually have some flowers in the garden starting to show new growth...
I'm not a big climate change believer...but if this is the result then its not all bad.

It seems while I've been away many of the blogs that I've been following have passed by the wayside...
I suppose in the modern age of twitter and facebook it's easy to get your online fix in bite size chunks, but for me nothing quite beats blogging.

Of the 200+ sites I used to regularly follow almost half have not been touched in 6 months...100 different lives and stories that just stopped - it's a little sad, not in a world hunger way... but still sad.

So here is a little tribute to blogging comrades who have fallen by the wayside in 2011:-

Simply Scotches - The true Men's drink
Great reviews of a great tipple in all its forms...this site got me seriously back into Scotch

Awesome site for random craziness and rambles on the world

Haters Going to Hate
Another great site full of more bizarre internet weirdness - always good for a laugh

Cheers for all the good times and entertainment...

Does anyone else have a favourite blog that has passed into the annals of blogging history?

New beginings

Morning Bloggerati,

Since coming back from Africa I've kind of been off the drink, not for any particular moral or health reasons, I think I've just started to settling down. (I actually shuddered as I wrote that lo). Going down the pub straight after work, and staying out until 4 in the morning no long holds the same attraction (most of the time) and certainly I don't miss waking up in strange place with no memory of how I ended up there.

...anyway this has led me to revamp what I'm going to be blogging about...less beer and more blogging/life/randomness...so good bye Bar-science and hello Bloggerati.

In line with this less beer orientated lifestyle I've also started back down the gym which in my heart I know will last about three weeks (given previous form), usually until the launch of a new highly anticipated computer game... So I'm sure that I'll probably be back to blogging about beer around about the same time.

...plus I'll always miss parties like this:-

More big cats...

Evening Bloggerati,

I've been looking around for ideas for this blog and will be changing it slowly over the next few weeks...so in the meantime I thought I'd just carry on posting stuff from Africa...

Having been born in Africa I've been back a few times since moving to the UK, usually involving some form of safari...but i'd never seen a leopard until this trip.
Here's the video I took:-

It's the little things that bug me since coming back to the UK.

Everything in Kenya seemed a little more relaxed and cool...even when vehicles broke down and it took literally hours to sort out - it was all cool....
As opposed to changing the flat tire I had today on my car...although that might also have something to do with the torrent of rain.

Anyway I'm slowly in the process of changing this blog over to more general blog content....with a new change of name...but in the meantime I'm going to be posting a few clips and pics from my trip.

Africa was amazing...

...and even though I tried to stay a little longer than planned, I had to come home :( Sad time.

...so I'm slowly getting back into the Blogging groove and have started a new blog...check it out:-
