Making Money on the Web

Since Feb 2005 I have been experimenting with making a little income from websites. Not by working on them and building them for people which is one of my ‘proper’ sources of income, but by actually building sites for myself that then generate an income. Now, before you get excited, I’m not making loads, in...

Remember Remember…

…the 5th of November… To be honest I almost forgot it was Bonfire Night tonight. Well, it is excusable seeing as we had the community bonfire party last weekend to make the most of people being around at the end of half term. There will of course be a firework display in Borth tonight, but...

Trick or Treat?

‘Trick or Treat?’, I wonder how many websites and blog entries have that title today? Well it is Halloween so I thought I’d be topical too, but what is it all about? Why do we celebrate Halloween? Why do we dress up in ghoulish costumes and carve out pumpkins? Why do we play ‘trick or...

Community Fireworks

Last night we travelled all of about 10 metres to the now annual bonfire party at our next door neighbours. Now that they live here full time and are not just weekend visitors, the bonfire party seems to be growing in stature with more and more members of the local community coming together for an...

Showbiz Pays… Or does it??

It isn’t very often that there is any showbiz news emanating from the Aberystwyth area. We do have a few famous people living around here, but most have come here to get away from the limelight and therefore tend not to generate any news stories. However, the front page of yesterdays Cambrian News ran with...

Some people say get a dog!

As Al mentioned the other day we have been living in Mid Wales for a few years now and do see ourselves as locals, especially now we have someone Welsh in the family (Morgan!). It can be difficult to integrate into close-knit rural societies and often the advice is ‘get a dog’ (especially where we...

Weather With You…

If there’s one thing that everyone knows about Wales, it is that we get more than our fair share of weather. Indeed, today we have had gorgeous sunshine, torrential downpours, light winds, gales force winds and probably a few other bits and pieces of weather too. This may well explain our fascination for the weather,...

Locals Rule

Since moving to this area of West Wales, Anna and I have always tried (without trying too hard) to integrate with the locals. It has to be said that it isn’t a difficult thing to do as many of the ‘locals’ are actually well established incomers. However, even as students at Aberystwyth University we tended...

New backend

Well, this website and its blog may only be a week or so old, but I have been meaning to ‘play’ with the blogging software WordPress for a while now. So before this site had too many posts I thought it would be an ideal opportunity to give it a go. So far I have...

Friendly Anonymity

I was chatting to someone yesterday (who shall remain anonymous) who had recently moved to this area after having lived in London, Bristol, Stroud and a few small places. It seemed to me (and to her) that she had yet to find her true ‘home’ and in her words she is ‘never happy’. From what...
