National Record Shop Day.

Yes, it’s national Record Shop Day this Saturday. If you’re a vinyl geek, then I believe quite a few bands are producing special releases on vinyl for the day. Unfortunately, most of the record shops that I ever visited are no longer in existence. Guess I’ll stick with Amazon then: Judas! 

As for albums, here are some pics of the first album that I ever owned. The original is stacked away somewhere,  I picked up a duplicate for old times sake. And yes, by doing so I've done my bit for Record Shop Day. I got the album for Christmas, 1979, so I would have been 5. Quite an eclectic compilation as I’m sure you will agree. I wonder whose legs they are on the cover and what they’re doing now?

The Good Life

                                   A sturdy frame is needed, this was hand made for me. 
                                   Notice that it's narrow, thus making  it easier when 
                                   working on. 

                                  A copper band should stop the slugs from eating up your 
                                  all your crops. I picked this up from a local DIY shop.

                                 Make a space or find a space. I cut back some foliage where
                                 I knew that the sun would shine for a good part of the day. 

                                  Plant your seeds in neat little rows, then cover with soil.   
                                  If you're a novice like me, then it's probably best to label 
                                  them too. 

                                    The mesh should keep Foxes, birds and cats away. 

                                                                   Remember to water. 

I'm sorry hal.

Namco World

More pics to come from my visit to Namco World.
And yes, after a long while being stuck amongst the lights and buzzers, it did start to feel a bit like Westworld.
