Ground that was once owned by my Grandfather as part of his market garden business and was sold/'requisitioned' by the council on the strict understanding that it should be retained as free parking for Portchester residents, now under threat of development.

Please sign to show your support.

Protect Portchester Precinct Car Park

We the undersigned fully support the retention of Portchester Precinct's southern car parks with no reduction/loss of parking numbers. We believe that any significant loss of parking would have a serious detrimental effect on the vitality and viability of the District...

An old colleague of mine (who used to head up the PR1ME User Group, for any aging tech-heads!) has just launched her beautiful, handcrafted Welsh wood creations on fb. Turning and burning a speciality.

"We have been making lovely turned wooden bowls, boxes, jewellery and yarn craft tools from locally grown hardwoods and recycled hardwood since late 2011. Our products are sold available from https://www.facebook.com/TaranEcoDesigns at the Corris Craft Centre, and we also accept direct commissions."

Well worth a look and like.

The stuff of science-fiction, think of SG1, The Lost World and many more, where data is stored in 5D in crystals and may have created the first document which will likely survive the human race!

Revolutionary "Superman" Memory Crystals Can Store Data Virtually Forever

Researchers recently demonstrated the recording and retrieval processes of five dimensional digital data--all of which takes place inside a piece of quartz.

I was thinking of putting together a 2013 montage of sorts myself but G+ Auto Awesome has done a fair job for me!

Another texture blend for the "Thankful" section of +Chrysta Rae's Autumn Scav Hunt. This time a combination of three images, one of the memorial in Portchester and two of Poppies. 

A mask was taken of the memorial image and then applied to the layers containing the Poppies to limit them to the edge of the stonework with varying degrees of opacity and blend types to retain the texture of the stone.

This was my entry for +Chrysta Rae's Autumn 2013 Scavenger Hunt, for the keyword, "Mummy". It was also my first real effort (effort being the operative word) at a texture blend, with an animated Halloween decoration coupled with a shot of fake cobwebs. Needless to say it didn't win any prizes - More work to be done. :)
