BBQ Al Fresco Style

June 25th, 2012


Well the BBQ season is slowly coming upon us. No such here out in Afghan the days do get a bit repetitive and you seem to count down the days like you were in prison! So anything out of the norm is a welcome break as it breaks it up a bit. So we got some Al Fresco cooking on and had a BBQ. Was a good shout the only thing missing was beer, haven’t touched a drop in over 2 months now… Was still good to sit down and chill out with everyone for a bit, even though I had to stay sober


I am trying to upload some photos of my tour to my gallery so look out for them soon

Scaling down, getting ready for the move & selling my stuff

December 22nd, 2011


Welll  –  with the year drawing to a close and the fact i have been mobilised with the first stint being in Germany in early 2012. This month has generally been a month of scalling down. Now prehaps im too materialistic  – i know this,   so i have been Selling my Stuff to make sure that im doing it right and not too attached to anything

One of the things i got rid of was my PC  –  so now moved everting over to a combination of a NAS device i have chillin on the LAN and my Apple Mac    –  still a bit reluctant to move to OSX completely   so using VM Fusion to emulate a windows box on my Mac


Quite a good peice of Sotware, means you can toggle between the 2 OS’s without having to reboot or use Boot Camp. Installing a Virtual Windows Machine was the easy bit –  however porting my iTunes colleaction accross was the difficult part. Finally think i have managed to do this successfully. Everything is now on a portable HDD and also held on my NAS for redundancy. The next step is for me to automatically sync my portable drive with my Mac

The 50′ TV has also gone and a bunch of stuff that ive never really used. I am adamant im keeping my car tho, its my baby and cant see me getting another car soon that gives me so much enjoyment
