Design is easy.....?

Always on the look out for design/film/animation/photo taking inspiration - Oh, and travel ideas, (although anything in Japan will always win hands down for me). Currently based in the North East of Scotland.

On the road.

No particular order of places visited; San Joaquin valley,Sierra Nevada mountains,San Jose,Yosemite National Park,giant 'sequoias' or redwood trees and their equally giant cones. 600 miles covered,listening to Merle Haggard (felt appropriate as we drove past his birthplace) in a minivan in 40c heat.The drink was well deserved when we arrived at our lovely hotel a lot later on.

Went to see the giant redwoods today,got the boat over to Alcatraz,saw the crookedest street(!),on Lombard, went to Sausalito and had pancakes,crispy bacon and maple syrup for breakfast. Over next few days, down to a bit of route 66 then back on along to Sierra Nevada and up to Yosemite National Park.

I'll be jiggered!

Bought a jigger measure today for making proper cocktails that hopefully reduce further throat-stripping sessions via evil concoctions. It's worrying how 'out' my measure guesstimates were!

..... and red chillies. Got the bug now that my sunflower is coming along nicely. Got a new chili plant from my folks, intend to get a tomato plant and some herbs next week. Woah, who'd have thunk it after my rubbish non-greenfingery attempts a few years back!
