2008 The End

Where did that one go… Wow, it’s coming to an end as they always do. What a great year this has been. Started out a bit cold but always clear to take the bike out. Back in January I cycled by night. Thinking one night I was heading into the dark unknown considering if God could really be out there. I cycled around a corner in the pitch black a bit apprehensive of thing around the corner. Asking God to take care of me if he was around. Then it seemed as if the sky cleared from it’s cloudiness and the path in front of me lit up by a full moon. Someone switched on the light. It was ace, I cycled four miles along the canal without the spot light. This was were I came up into town and saw the Church and thought I’ll drop by on Sunday.
The first church day came and went with me thinking I don’t know what to do. It so happened a friend of Michelle's was part of this church and got one of the clergy to get in touch. It went from there… I gave my life to Jesus. Believe me; it’s not an easy …

Earth Hour

Earth Hour. 28th March 2009

I had this sent to me today from Richard at the Thatcham Good Life. Looks like something that's getting big for all the right reasons. Take a look at the video; the website is at the bottom also. Let's see if we can make the change for the right reasons. Awareness of the issue is the first step in geting people to make the difference.

Triggers tribute

A place in history where I can bring Ben back to every now and again.
Ben is my eldest son; a good lad, hard working doing well at school and is blessed with a great personality. I'm sure he should have been a blond though. What he lacks in common sense I suppose he tries to make up in good looks. When he was younger on occasions when he would go to the shop or chip shop he would always get the order wrong; either not enough or the wrong type of whatever he was buying. We got used to it and started to really lay down what he needed to buy and sometimes wrote a list for him. As he got to the age of fifteen he started to get it right because he would ask questions and fear me giving him a hard time at my pleasure and his expense ( Healthy Banter ) as a friend of mine used to say 'character building'.

This all changed tonight.... Michelle and Dominik are away to see the family so that leaves me, Ben and Joshua to look after ourselves. It was getting late and after a cool TV mar…

I Finished

Decorating the Kitchen this week. Hmmm, why put that here...? I can finally have my life back from renovation. Never never again will I take on a wreck to fix up....

Thatcham to Tipton

Hopefully the first big ride of the year Thatcham to Tipton. Planning this for next year. Thatcham canal the Kennet and Avon into Reading and then cross onto the The Thames path upto Oxford. From Oxford join the Grand Union to Tipton. Should be over 2 days with a stop off at a B&B along the way. I've been thinking of doing the ride for a cause; maybe the for awareness of environmental issues. I'll need to discuss this with Terry. He's coming along for the experience. It should be good, pretty easy too because it's all flat work.
I've been looking around for maps for Memory Map to plan the route and a stop off. I have most of the South but the middle bit through Oxford and Worcestershire are all missing. If anyone has them available that would be great to get a copy :-) That's it for this entry. I'll try to start blogging more. I've done so much this year that would make good reading; for me anyways. Well here's to the future and next years riding …
