Once again my subconscious has conspired to leave me baffled beyond belief upon waking. After dreaming about going to university (no, this is not something I’m planning on, though my step-son does soon!), I was woken up briefly by the sound of a cat crying (urgh), and then dreamed of people being violently sick as they ran through some catacombs. What brought on this last part I truly have no idea! My mind is clearly quite a disturbed place!
So, the day has come. This morning my daughter started reception – every time I look at her I see that little bundle my wife and I brought home four years ago. When did she get so big???
Lately I’ve been getting some good feedback on my Terminator pages from the good denziens of Stardestroyer.net, and as such I plan to make some modifications to those pages, giving credit where it’s due. I also plan to update my Star Trek vs Star Wars page, based on feedback from the good people of Starfleet Jedi. Precisely when this happens is anybody’s guess (I am currently working on a huge project on Movellas that will hopefully be epic!), but rest assured, these updates will happen!
Is there anything else planned? Well, I still need to have a thorough look at my Wix site and see what else (if anything) is worth being ported to here. There are a few possibilities, so stay tuned!
Right now England are winning. I am unsure of how to process this unusual information.
So, two weeks after the hijinks of Belgium, Formula 1 has returned to our screens! This time, for once, Lewis Hamilton managed to have a good race (apart from a poor start), and it was Rosberg who made mistakes under pressure, twice running off the track at the first turn after getting his braking wrong.
Hamilton drove well, kept up the pace and, after clearing the Mclaren of Magnussen and the Williams of Massa, quickly bore down upon Rosberg. On a track that demands speed, Hamilton had it, outpacing Rosberg quite nicely. In the end, it was a deserved win – though the distance between the pair on points is still quite big.
Hamilton needs to win every race if Rosberg is second in every race – a tall order, especially given his mechanical luck this year – so realistically, he needs Rosberg to suffer a mechanical failure or two of his own, if he is to close the gap.
Daniel Riccardo once again displayed the traits of a future world champion, including (but not limited to) a bold overtaking move on his four-time world champion team mate Vettel, to claim fifth place. Massa took third (his first podium since Spain last year), and showed the progress of Williams. His team mate Bottas was also full of overtaking moves, prepared to be brave when it mattered.
Ferrari’s home grand prix wasn’t a memorable one for them. Alonso retired due to mechanical problems and Raikkonen could only manage tenth place – disappointing for them, and they will want to improve when F1 next gets together.
Can Lewis maintain his form? How will Rosberg respond? What sparks will fly next time out? I cannot wait!
No, I’m not crying – my right eye is watering like crazy and won’t stop! Arrrgh!
Today marks five years since one of the best days of my life (barring only my daughter’s birth). On this day, five years ago, I got married.
I am very lucky to have found a woman who’s prepared to put up with me for so long! She is beautiful, she makes me laugh, and we share so many of the same interests that it feels like we were made for each other. She is a wonderful mother and I worship her. I love you my darling!
So, it would appear my Creationism page has generated a fair bit of discussion (especially on BigFooty), accounting for the vast majority of recent visits to my site – though in fairness, I’ve more aggressively pushed this page than I have the others. I’m quite pleased that it’s got the attention it’s gotten – it means my site is getting attention too!
I am soon going to put into motion a few changes to this site – a re-organisation of it, with a new main heading – Sci-Fi Analysis, that will encompass any discussions or pages on things like Star Trek vs Star Wars, among other things. This will group things more nicely. I also plan to add a page about the Terminator films – which I’ve always thoroughly enjoyed!
Stay tuned for these updates!
I’ve only watched a few minutes of Educating Joey Essex: Space Cadet, and… err… well, he’s a ‘special’ lad.
So, we are now at the start of September. This site has been running for just under one month. Time for an update on the site stats!
The all-time referrer to my site so far is Bigfooty, with 61. Starfleet Jedi is in second place with 36, then iMDB is in joint-third with 20. Sharing third spot is the category of Search Engines.
Twitter is fifth with 19 people clicking to my site from there, Stardestroyer.net is sixth with a score of 17, Facebook accounts for 15 clicks, then, oddly, Facebook again (not sure why it’s divided into two categories) with 7. Sharing seventh place goes to a Weird Al link (eh?) with 7, WordPress.org is level with Movellas on 5. The WordPress Reader has 2 clicks, as does yet another Facebook entry, and in last is another iMDB entry.
By country, the UK is top with 195 hits coming from right here in Blighty. The US is second with 165 views, Australia is third on 109, Slovenia is fourth with 29 (am I big in Eastern Europe?). Thailand is fifth with 24, then Canada is sixth with 13.
New Zealand is seventh with 8 referrals, Finland and Ireland are next (both are on 4), Spain has 2, and Norway, Denmark, Japan, Malta, Russia, Portugal and Croatia are all on 1.
So, there you have the current breakdown! Another one on the 1st of October!
