I was very impressed by the camera on the HTC One X when I had it a year ago, but other features of the S3 meant the One X was sold on pretty quick. With the HTC One now as my day to day device, I assumed the camera would be far better than my now aging S3, but looking at some results, I’m not so sure.
It wasn’t the best weather to ride down to Surrey to see Brian, but it was worth the trip. Continue reading Suspension – Who knew!
I think it was September of 2010 when I first took on an Acting DM Role, when one of the Department Managers in my store was going in for knee surgery. It went well, I was kept in an acting role on her return.
Then in April of 2011 I went to, and passed, my Department Manager Assessment Centre. At the same time though, Waitrose was going through a management restructure called FBS and I was to head up the new Operations section at Marylebone.
As I’ve mentioned, this year I’m looking to get more into photography, so I was over joyed when my good friends at Love-Cases offered me a camera backpack to try.
Ideally what I’d like is something I could use when on my motorbike that allows me to have storage space for cloths, gadgets, snacks and drinks as well as compartments for my camera equipment. I didn’t realise such a thing existed, but this Tuff Luv E-Volve backpack is exactly what I was looking for! Lets take a closer look.
I’ve been going to the Gym on and off for around 23 years now. The ‘on’ period I was having approaching Christmas was a pretty good one, starting back in June 2010 I’d been pretty consistent, Foursquare would tell me I was on a 40 week streak, going at least once a week, even through our Texas holiday.
One thing I want to get more into this year is my photography, so I was delighted when the good people at Lovecases.co.uk offered me this case to test. Obviously the camera, lens, tripod, flash and others are important, but if you don’t have the right camera bag for the job, you’re going to struggle.
Following last years epic trip to California, we weren’t really sure how we’d follow it in 2012. Initially we’d thought about Florida, possibly even Canada but then I saw the Redskins would be playing the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day in Cowboys Stadium! Much as I hate the Cowboys, they have arguably the best stadium in the world and I wasn’t going to miss the Redskins playing there on Thanksgiving!
After a quick look on eBay, it wouldn’t be hard to get tickets, so plans started to develop…
For the sixth year, the NFL brought two teams over to Wembley to play a regular season game in London. For the sixth year, I was there to see it, along with 84,003 others!
Although we’ve always tried to get good tickets, this year we had the best seats yet. At the 50 yard line, around 20 rows back gave us a great view of every touchdown at either end of the field.
I have to admit, when the first information started coming out about applying for tickets for the Olympics, I really wasn’t too bothered. As Olympic lanes started cropping up in town and Londoners are told to try and stay away if they can, I was probably with others in finding the Olympics a bit of an annoyance.
I have to be honest, this changed as the Olympics started. I was enjoying watching the different events on the TV, it helped that Team GB had a successful start to the games, winning quite a few golds in the opening few days. Me and Robert then spent 4 or 5 days monitoring the ticketing website, trying to grab a ticket to anything within the Olympic Park.
I can’t say I’m all that excited by the games coming to London. I’m not attending any of the events, anything I see will be on the TV so it could just as easily be somewhere else in Europe and it would make no difference to me.
There is one thing I’ve been able to ‘participate’ in, and that’s to get a look at the torch as it passes by. The torch has made its way round Britain, they say passing within 10 miles of 95% of the population, so with it passing within 300 metres of me, I figured I should make the effort and go see it.
