It appears to me that as time passes by that the previous time period of the same length appears to have been greater than the current or most recent time period. This experience becomes normalised as you experience more and more years until they appear to be mostly the same length, but passing quickly because they’re just a small small fraction of your overall life span so far. The above graph shows the rate of change when you’re very young is very high this tails off as you pass about 10 years old where there would appear to be a 1:1 ratio of years of age to life span. The percentage quickly reaches low numbers of 5% at age 20 and so the next 80 years as spend gradually reducing that number to 1% at age 100. The above graph is the same data, but presented on a base 2 […]
I decided to upgrade my old 4D Maglite to be an LED lamp rather than the old halogen lamp that was in there since I got way back. The littlun is pinching parts as I try to photograph them, sorry. That or the Maglite I have is huge if you take that hand to be mine. I got the this from:http://thetorchsite.co.uk/HIGH_power_Multimode_10_watt_Maglite_LED.html Ordered it on Sunday night and it was here on Tuesday morning. I get the low setting at the 20 second mark, takes me four tries to get it.
I purchased some drill bits from Ebay, very cheap ones, but it said that they were cobalt so I thought I’d give them a try for 2 and a bit quid. In fairness the drills did have HSS stamped on them, but I suspect that stands for “Highly Soft Steel” in this instance, they’re almost certainly made from Chinesium. In future I’ll pay reasonable money to a reputable shop for decent drill bits. Lesson learned.
We visited Yorkshire and York last weekend. We visited the national train museum. I was amazed by the cut open steam locomotive, I took the photo looking towards the front of the loco to the right of the photo with the fire box in the foreground to the left. The river is the Ouse and the house is Beningbrough Hall.

We went on holiday to America, visiting Washington DC and then New York. I was particularly surprised that I might have liked New York more than Washington DC. Washington DC Photos New York Photos One of many highlights was meeting a guy who was feel squirrels nuts by letting the squirrels come and take the nut from him. I took video prior to that.
Having rooted my phone I took some pictures as I did it. But since I had to use my camera I hadn’t had the incing to get the card reader out and put the pictures up here.. now I finally found the motivation.

I just realised that I didn’t post an pictures of the inside and since I had put some many pictures in the previous I thought I’d make this one of it’s own. Perhaps check out what the places looks like in 3D: https://goo.gl/maps/xaSTQu5YoAF2 Google Earth would be better.. Check it out! Anyways, here are my pictures.

Hannah and I went to Budapest for the Christmas Market, a trip organised by the sports and social club at work. We took with us many thousands of Forints. A pretty worthless currency, currently about 340 HUR to 1 GBP. They could do with knocking a few zeros of. I saw a very tatty Fiat 500 for 200k. We had a lovely time looking around the town and the Christmas Market. We went up to the top of St. Stephen’s Basilica where there are stunning views across the city, also it’s very grand inside.

We visited some friends in Elgin, Scotland last weekend. We did not see the Lochness monster but I did spot a Liebherr excavator. We also visited the Glenfiddich distillery (single malt wisky) and the Baxters plant (soup). I notice that both places are by appointment to some of our royals and even other counties royals too. The pictures are of Lochness and Urquhart Castle, The Lochness monster in the form of a nice Liebherr excavator and the beach at Lossiemouth. Glenfiddich distillery and Baxters plant next to the river Spey.
