Just had a fairly laid-back 3 days...
Bought a load of steaks from the new butcher in town, gave them a bit of pepper seasoning and then whacked them on the grill. Served with fries, onion rings and fresh bread. Very tasty. Will certainly be doing that again soon!
Been doing some revising for me last exam on Friday. Not cramming, just re-reading stuff and bringing it all back to the front of my mind.
Been playing the new bass, of course. Starting to hone my favourite sounds, including one with mega-distortion. The best thing is that my amp allows me to program in different settings so all I have to do is push a button to change from one sound to another. Yes, I will demonstrate once the exam is done and dusted.
We actually had some sunshine yesterday! Soooo good to see it again! But today the clouds are back.
Watched a movie yesterday, called Iron Clad. Set in the reign of King John (the bad guy in Robin Hood movies). It was pretty good (if somewhat unnecessarily bloody) but there was one detail that stuck in my throat. The main focus was around a seige at Rochester Castle, which is around 25 miles from where I live. They made a good replica of it for the film, a very pretty computerised one for distant views and really seemed to have done a lot of homework.
Except for one thing.
They declared that they have a fresh water supply from the River Medway that runs right next to it.
The river is tidal at that point, so they would be drinking sea water! Not recommended!
Picky I know, but why allow something so simple to slip through? The castle must have had a good water supply - just not from the river! Ah well, pedantic rant over...
