Had a new programme installed on my computer last week (thanks my angel!)) which has speeded things up considerably with the book. The old one was fine with text (as this one is) but hopeless for photographs. For example, you couldn’t ‘lock’ them on a chosen space on the page; rather you could, but when going back to work on them later, sometimes they’d have moved off the page – which in turn, threw the text out. It was no serious problem as when you returned the pic. to its original position, the text went into place. But it was just time-consuming, so now it’s a lot quicker.
Some of the pictures I have chosen really are classic (mostly b/w but some colour), but all perfectly respectable I hasten to add! I only say that to stop people like Craig assuming they are like Page 3 Sun photos! No. My books have always been serious, and I like to think I have always dealt with fact as opposed to fantasy!
Actually, this is quite a difficult thing with things psychic and occult and some people would argue (indeed, have argued) that as many of these topics cannot be proved either one way or the other, it is wrong to refer to these as ‘fact’. Fair point; but I mean I only report the things and events as presented to me (or as I have personally found or experienced them), I try not to add the usual sensationalism added by some authors with almost the certain intention of neglected more ‘mundane issues’ just for the sake of selling ‘good’ copy.
Do you know, I actually did some physical work today. There is (was) an old gas cooker in the kitchen that must have been here almost as long as the house has been standing (1896 or something I believe). Well, I was given a much better one which I had stored in the back room, and I decided to change them over. What a job! And my bad back and foot didn’t help either! But a friend and myself managed it. Now all I need to do is start using it rather than relying on pre-cooked food or things that need virtually no preparation out of packets. (The beer, of course, presents no problem as that is cold and easy in its simplicity to open!).
What else is new? Well, I’m seeing a friend in the film business from Yorkshire tomorrow, so we’ve got a bit of catching up to do. Usually been done by phone, but now he’ll be here in person. (I bet you thought it was somebody else when you started reading this Craig. Well sorry to disappoint you!).
Other than that, things fairly slow.
As some of you will have noticed, my friend from the Midlands, psychic investigator Wayne has now joined in the Blog. I believe I mentioned the BCPS in connection with him earlier. To clarify that a little, Wayne is in fact the founder of the Black Country Paranormal Society.
Please do keep posting Wayne!
That’s it for the moment,
HELP! C or K. Look what this programme’s done to the formatting!
