We had a fine old time of it .. The Balloons, Cold as Ice, Aine O’Dwyer and Albert Newton were bookended with DJ sets from BPM and Vince. YT hung about with a camera and captured some tasty clips which are already up on YouTube Playlist so have a look yourself!

Little Bubble of Laughter has produced a sci-fi action comedy film INTRAFLUX, a short adaptation of ‘Intrafluxing The Matrix’. It’s written in quantum-python and based on a true programing event which was picked up on and given a new life of it’s own by code-meddler Crissalida during the sadly defunct Funix sessions.
TB, Darq and Vortex provide voice over to the proceedings which features some cosmic interaction and inspirational insights in to the life and times of operational code! You really should track down a screening and bathe in it’s spectacular light soon as.. in the interim check here for all the info.
Many thanks to all who made it to my 50th birthday garden party on Sunday 26th! What a great day with friends, a mountain of great food and drink and fantastic surprise presents ! (more on these later)
I was so flat out getting squeezed and chatting, failed to take a single image so luckily Yoshi was on hand with his large glass eye to take in the scene.. and how! you can see them all on his fab blog.
By the time darkness fell I was fully blissed out and more than ready to ignite Lurka’s 50 shot firework spectacular.
For those who missed out, sorry as I was quite slack posting invites into the correct channels in good time.
Hope to see you all again soon for more fun with friends. xx
This Friday 15th June is set to a busy one with the day starting early at Pete Popes funeral taking place at Hither Green Crematorium 10.45am followed by a gathering of friends and family from noon at The Dog and Bell where food and drinks will be served up to all in his honor.
Pete died of lung cancer in May after many months of failing health which followed a decade of declining fortunes. He was well known and loved for his straight forward thinking and action on social and community concerns in his beloved SE8 and is missed by all who knew him.
A further Session is planned for dispersal of his ashes on 24th June with a noisy marching band heading out from the Birdsnest to Ha’penny Hatch for 5pm. bring a drum or something else to bash!
Last Saturday I travelled to Ashtead to meet my mum at her sisters where I heard some cousins and aunties would be present. To my delight there were indeed many extended family members lunching and we shared the great many cakes and drank wine together.
Later we viewed a DVD – Armstrong Archives I had with me of recently digitised family standard and super8 cini movies some filmed by my grandfather Claude as early as 1942. As a consequence of the gathering we exchanged emails with the good intent to remain to better contact and meet again sooner. On returning home I felt energised to the point I built a family Armstrong blog into which I am inviting them all to contribute.
This week I have been helping friends start out building wordpress websites in support of their project activities. as a part of this process I have revisited some fascinating web services not least of all http://ifttt.com which enables cross fertilisation of social networking and information systems from a single entry point. As a regular user of WordPress I am always looking for ways to ecconomise on my time fiddling about in other systems so today I added a wordpress to facebook recipe which will now post this blog entry there automagicaly.
