Happy New Year!

Ha, well, there we have it. 2007 is no more.
I managed, with the help of a few friends to get my play-count over 1000 before then end of the year. A small milestone I know, but to me it meant a lot.
Not too much of a hangover today. I drank responsibly. Got up this a.m. and went for a walk on Wimbleball Lake on Exmoor. I've put a couple of photos on facebook if anyone is interested.
Happy new year everyone!
Back on track again

Well, I've had a busy old couple of months with work/decorating and a fairly mad spell of socialising.
Lots of people leaving the company I work for, so lots of leaving do's. Sad to see them all go, but we've had some good nights out.
Saw Turin Brakes a couple of months back, in Exeter. Very good.
Upgraded to OS 10.5 Leopard. No problems so far (since the update supplied 1 week after release by Apple) which cured some rather serious GarageBand and iMovie/iDVD issues. As I'm working on a new song and editing a movie of my wife driving a racing car, I was pretty gutted when they started playing up after the upgrade. All good now and I have to say I quite like Leopard.
Apart from Stacks. Which is crap. Really awful. Honestly.
Anyhow, new song on the way soon and I hope now to have more time to dedicate on the forums.
BTW. I'm now on Facebook, so if anyone else wants another friend, just search for
Paul Barrett - I'm in Devon.
Ashfest and new song

Went to Ashill, a village not far away from here last night (if you are familiar with the music of Joss Stone you'll know this is where she hails from).
They had a small music fest (Ashfest). Couple of stages (a tent and the village hall). Lots of local talent, a good night was had by all. A few beers were drunk and I met 3 people I hadn't seen for about 10 years.
