Bride has baby during wedding service

 I heard today of a bride who started giving birth during the actual wedding service, apparently she insisted on finishing the service then going to the ambulance, by which time it was too late to take her to hospital and she gave birth in the ambulance outside the church.
 I bet the vicar was well pleased!

Doctor Who is back.... (review)

 Doctor Who is back yeah!... oh wait, it's utter shit!  Arghhhh!!!!!!

 Yes Doctor Who returned to our screens this weekend after a year off was it worth it?  No is the short answer.
 Staring the bloody awful Peter Crap-aldi as the Doctor with 17 different hairstyles. Pearl Mackie as Bill Potts and Matt Lucas and Nardole.  Mackie seems to spend most of the time with a vacant expression , Crap-ildi is just hopeless, and Lucas steals the show with the best acting ability and the best lines.
 This first episode is about a deadly puddle, yes as a series it's gone downhill faster than a Olympic bobsled.  Helped downhill by poor scripts, terrible acting, and ludicrous stories.

Waynes rating 1/10 give it a miss and bang your head against a wall for more entrainment

I've got flu

I seem to have got a nasty flu bug or something, it's hit hell out of me, and it's taking it's time about going too.  I'm feeling like death warmed up at the moment. Great Easter weekend and all I want to do is curl up and die quietly.

What the hell is wrong with people around here?

 In about 5 minutes yesterday I had two elderly people look at my car coming along the road then walk out right in front of me, I had a man walking his dog, he was on the pavement the dog was in the middle of the road on 20 foot of string.   I had someone run out of their house and across the road right in front of me, I had a young couple just standing in the road at a roundabout having a chat.  Seriously what the hell is wrong with people these days? 
 Later I had two "ninja" cyclists (all in black with no lights) one actually on the wrong side of the road texting and not even looking where he was going, silly bastard.
 Honestly no wonder road deaths are so high, half the people around here shouldn't be out on their own.

Morriston Hospital! What a shambles.

 I had to take my mother to Morriston hospital again yesterday for a routine visit. Every time I go to this hospital I end up leaving stressed and annoyed.  Frankly the whole place is a total shambles.
 Before my mother got her own wheelchair we'd have to use one from the hospital, that was assuming you could actually find one and it was fit to use, half the ones we managed to find were unfit to be used due to things like faulty brakes or missing foot pads.
 Then theres the check in system, I use the word system loosely, first you check in the foyer, then you wait there, after a few dozen names are shown on badly places monitors your told to go to the next waiting area, but you have to check in there as well. Why? you've already checked in once, how inefficient is their system that you need to tell them you've gone to the next room that they just told you to go to, and why not send you there in the first place.
 Finally the icing on the cake, the parking, well parking doesn't do it justice, total fucking awful shambles comes closer.  It's seriously fucking chaos. People are parking literally anywhere, in loading bays, in ambulance bays, on the pavements, down the middle of the aisles in the car parks stopping people who have managed to part properly from getting their cars out. On the corners, even on the pedestrian crossing, I kid you not.
The problem is the morons who "run" the NHS centralized a lot of units at Morriston, added lots of new building but didn't bother to think that people visiting the hospital have cars so the car parking space is totally inadequate for the numbers now using the hospital.
 Seriously Morriston Hospital, get it sorted it's not a joke, frankly it's a bloddy dangerous situation and very akward for the poor bastards who have to use your joking excuse for a hospital.

Filming with the GoPro, what have I learnt so far...

 Filming with the GoPro, what have I learnt so far? 
 Well I've learnt no matter how steady you think your walking with it, theres no substitute for a proper "Steadicam mount" even the steadiest walk looks like a drunken camel with a broken leg and a blindfold carrying the camera.
 I've learnt that poking the camera 6 foot up in the air on a pole means even a bloody fish eye lens still missed the bit your aiming for.
 I have now confirmed (I learnt this the first time I used it) that the GoPro camera sound inside the waterproof housing is bloody awful and you need the skeleton back to get any worthwhile sound.

Sunsets and stuff.....

Heres a few shots from last nights sunset. Most are more or less as they came off the camera, the only ones played with were the 2 HDR shots.
