Blood Moon

This morning at silly O'clock was a Blood Moon, as it's probably the last chance I'll have to see it we went and took some pics.  For a change the sky stayed pretty clear and I got some good pics.  All in all it took about 6 hours including the waiting and traveling.

Heres the composite.

The beach and dogs....

 I went for a quiet wander on the local beach this morning... Well that was the plan, it wasn't exactly quiet though.
 You see the problem was loads of dog owners had thought the same thing.  Now that shouldn't be a problem.  Dogs are not allowed on the beach until the end of this month (a few days) so they shouldn't even be on the beach in the first place.
 Trouble is not only are there hoards of dog on the beach, they are all off their leads. So as well as dogs barking and fighting we have owners shouting "comehere boy!" at the tops of their voices.
 Seriously it was beyond a joke, a steel foundry would have been quieter, indeed a steel foundry having a male voice choir shouting battle would have been quieter.  It was bloody ridiculous.
 The other thing I noticed was as I tried to avoid the dog owners by walking around them they almost all walked towards me for no good reason, they would change course and just walk towards someone obviously trying to avoid them, weird or what?
 Presumably they all wanted to make a new friend, I don't think it occured to any of them that I'd rather set the silly bastards on fire than be their new friend. 
 I've said it here before, if you see me out and about obviously minding my own business, leave me alone. Now this doesn't apply to my mates, but total strangers look out!  You've been warned!.  I do not want a new friend, especially one with the IQ of a fucking biro.

Carrig Cennen Castle

Carrig Cennen castle, went here yesterday on the spur of the moment, then ended up finding the trees I posted earlier.


 On a recent vist to what looks like middle earth I spotted some lovely trees.

Doctor Who 2015 New series start (spoiler alert!)

 Well the new series or Doctor Who started last night staring Peter Capaldi in the first of a 2 part episode called the Magicians apprentice.  
 I'm not sure where to start really.... The Doctor with a perm playing the guitar riding a tank. 
 To be honest it was dire!   The Doctor or the sneering man as I call him was at his sneering best. What he's done to his hair I don't know, he looks like Nero on a bad hair day.  Luckily about half the episode had Missy and Clara (Michelle Gomez and Jenna Coleman) in the staring role so we didn't have to listen to the Doctor trying to work out which old Doctor he's trying to copy with his style (Crippin maybe?)  Anyway it was hard to watch.
 The best bit was seeing an old original Dalek, strangely it seemed scarier than the much bigger new ones....

 Future episodes include ghosts in an underwater base (watch out for Britain's tallest man)  Vikings in space.  We'll see a sort of history of the Doctor in another episode (sleep no more)  Some faces from the past series.  And God help us all a one man episode with just the Doctor...  Called Heaven sent, more like bloody nightmare on Tardis street!
