The Slide

A reader has informed me that the place I went too was called Twinlakes Park, Melton Mowbray. Having a look at the website, I can remember the place very well.

This article is a part of three so it will all make sense when you read them all. Anyhow the other day I was speaking to Cassie after she read Tweaked for your Pleasure and asked about why every article seem to be about people who are “big scary meanies” and nothing that shows the world can be fun and all that. She then went on saying I could write one about the time I “last felt like a child” and write about that.

The”Dog wags over to Tweaked for your Pleasure

the-dogAs I am sure some of my original fans of Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure will remember that The’Dog (as done by Richard Lawrence) used to star at the end of my videos in the credits.

Well when I got around to stopping doing Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure for a while, this also sadly stopped. Well while I am currently having a small “internal” debate about if I should use it for the credits or not.

Anyhow while it may or may not be used, Richard is now carrying this on as their own videos and can now be found on The’Dog page on Tweaked for your Pleasure. Unlike last time, you are now able to request these but please keep them YouTube friendly.

The tales of an old man

Quite often on Tweaked for your Pleasure I write about things that happens in my life and this is one of these articles.

As I was visiting a town which I am not going to name as I am sure I will get a flood of fans going there, I had quite an interesting chat on the bus coming back. At the bus stop I was sitting on one of the benches listening to South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut on the Sony PlayStation Portable when this old man walks overs.

As it was raining, I picked my bag up that I had with me and moved to the side so that the old man could sit down. However, this man refuses to sit down as the bench was wet at which point he asks me is that the “latest iPhone”. Smiling, I simply said that it was a PSP – a small gaming device.

While I can not remember what we chatted about for the first five minutes or so we finally got chatting about time. Originally he started talking about how it is going to get dark soon. It was at that time he said, you know the sun controls our day and night. I then replied saying it all related to our orbits and the speed of it.

The old man only stopped to think for just a few seconds and went true and then went on to explain the science behind it. Having debated with him, he then went on about what is happening right now in the United Kingdom mostly about jobs.

Having ask me what was the last job I had, I thought to myself that the last time I was physically employed (not including freelance etc) was at New College Stamford. So I said to him I was a teacher for a short bit teaching PHP programming language.

The old man only replied talking about PHP itself and how he used to do some PHP programming for a website he had online. Out of interest, I asked about what website he used to run and his answer was simple – just a simple little blog.

Wanting to find out more about the blog, I asked about it but he went on to explain about how he only had six jobs in his day and one was being in the armed services. He went on to explain how he got into the armed service with military science.

At this time the bus pulled in and we all got on. The old man just sat quietly to himself listening to something on a device I could not see. Having stopped at all the other bus stops other than the one I live at, I decided to pop my head phones back in and listen to the end of South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut. Having not felt the bus stop anymore, the bus pulled into the place I live I looked up and the old man was gone.

For just a few minutes if I had to place a name on that old man, I would have said me.

 

Reasons to use a free forum host

This is the second post of the “free forum host” series. You can find the post – “Reasons not to use a forum host” here.

I can honestly say that everybody has seen what a forum is. Most people would have used one and some would have owned one. There was a time where setting up forums was a long process and costly but due to technology, this is no longer the case.

Free forum hosting has been around for a long while now. Personally, the last time I actually used a free forum host for an actual reason other then to see how well a service is, must have been around 2-4 years now.
