My iPhone App

I've now got an iPhone or iPod Touch application for my music. It needs more content (photos, music, video) but it's a start! You can get it direct from the iTunes Music Store by going to http://jesta.co.uk/iphone

I decided not to make it a free download for technical reasons, but if you buy it let me know and I'll happily give you your 59p back!

When I woke up this morning could’ve sworn it was judgement day

I was rudely awakened at 4 this morning by a low flying helicopter setting off car alarms and telling everyone to stay indoors and keep their windows shut. I took a look out of the window and saw a huge plume of black smoke billowing into the sky and drifting as far as I could see towards Morecambe Bay. I didn”t even think to take a photograph for a while.


As usual there was no information on the news websites or radio and it fell to Twitter to let me know that it was a fire at a food factory on the industrial estate. I watched the progress as the sun rose through the smoke and eventually it was obvious that the situation was under control.

Website changes

I know, I know… it's been ages since I updated here.

Well, I'm in the process of changing this website to become the central place for my family. We'll each have our own section, blog, photos etc. so it'll be pretty cool.

At the moment it's just my new son, Zachary, and me. It'll take me a while to get Harrison's website transferred over to this new system and I'll have to show Michelle how to use it too.

So, your patience is appreciated! See you back here soon…

The Ultimate Rick Roll

My good friend Jon had the wonderful idea of trying to pull off the ultimate Rick Roll this Christmas. Being somewhat fed up of the usual crap that becomes the “Christmas chart number 1” wouldn't it be a great if we could influence the outcome and force them into second place?

Well, here's the plan. In the week of December 15th to 20th we're asking everyone we know to spend just 79 pence (or whatever your local currency is) at the iTunes store and purchase the Rick Astley song “Never Gonna Give You Up”. If enough of us do this it should easily propel Rick to the number one spot.
