Rocky Road, 1st post in a while

Been quite on the blog and photography. Due to the snow had a late delivery of a new 2tb hard drive. In 20 years of using pc's I have now had 2 hard drives fail, both 1tb Samsungs. Will never use Samsung again.
Todays photo is a little late coming. Had a go at making some Christmas rocky road using the Nigella Lawson recipe. Click here.
Think they came out quite well.

Keyingham a village under snow.

My car has been stuck on the drive the last couple of days due to the snow. Luckily it was on the drive and not under the car port. This is now in pieces on my drive. I think the the foot of snow that fell overnight had not helped. Every one of the steel beams had bent under the weight. As it fell it has pulled off several pieces of guttering, this has lead to the formation of large icicles over our front door.
So I decided to have a wander around my village of Keyingham to see how the snow had changed things. It was nice to see people pulling as a community and clearing snow from each others drives and paths.

Live music at street life museum

Second time I have been to the street life museum in Hull for a free concert featuring local bands and singers. The event had been organised by Warren records an organisation that promotes young local talent. Had a really good turn out from the public, who looked like they where really enjoying the show.

The show lasted for two hours and had a good mix of covers and the musicians own music. Some of the younger singers it was their 1st time singing live in front of a large crowd. All them performed flawlessly.

Wear your poppy with pride


Todays photos are poppies picked near the Lisset war memorial. Thought it was a fitting photo for today.

Following quote is from facebook, I don't know the source:

“A Soldier is somewhere in the world tonight missing their family while you are safe at home. In the minute it takes you to read this, Military Members all over the world are not only saving lives, but they are also sacrificing their own life for your freedom”

Humber Bridge

The underside of the Humber bridge. When it 1st open it the worlds longest single span suspension bridge. Yorkshire and Lincolnshires own congestion charge. If the charge was scraped it would help local business work between the two sides of the river.
