It's a tough job

I got a call from the magazine. Can I go down to the embankment and taste some beer? It's the Thirtieth Peterborough Beer Festival and one of the biggest in the country second only to Olympia. Although some would argue it's bigger than Olympia. I toddle on down presented myself at the hospitality tent and was sat down at a table where we had to taste 32 different beers. It was hell I tell you. The temptation to order the full pint of more than one of them was terrible. As it was to get through all 32 beers you had to limit yourself to less than a quarter of a pint each. Here's some guys on my table checking out the Premium beer category. I'm standing at the side of the road just minding my own business when this dude in a wheel chair comes scooting along, totally oblivious to the fact he was in the middle of the road facing the oncoming traffic. Never being more than a few feet away from my camera I took this shot. It's hard to portray in the photo but the car coming towards the camera was swerving to avoid him and interestingly the white van behind that was an ambulance.
Issue six of the magazine is coming out soon. We've been working really hard to bring you some quality articles and photos.

Missing Cat

I found this on a lamp post outside my house. ..."or at least we can't seem to get rid of him." Cute.

The Office Party

Hey ho and a merry Oh. Here's some pics I took at Hinchinbrook Country park last weekend. Clockwise from Top left Fringed Water Lilly, the fruiting body of Lords and Ladies, Water Mint and Branched Bur Weed. I must be getting all important an all cos the other day I got an Email from the BBC asking me who's hot on the music scene right now. I recommended a few band that they might like to put on the radio. So I go to a local posh hotel with m'camera because they're holding the annual staff party with a James Bond casino theme. Four 52inch plasma TV's showing four different James Bond films, white carpet throughout (which went into a skip the next day) roulette table black jack etc walls that change colour it was amazing. Then my friend at the hotel told me the budget for this one evenings entertainment £45,000. How much? Forty five big ones. Christ on a bike just for an office party? What happened to the crate of cheap fizzy plonk and a stack of cucumber sandwiches cut in triangles with their edges curling up as they dry out? They must love their staff. Can you feel the love? How much love can you feel for £45,000? I'm sure it's not a record. I'm sure there's other companies even more daft than that. I would bet there's been a few in the six figure region. If you've been to one let me know.
