More Pi anyone?

As all of us (in the UK, anyway) escape the clutches of the pandemic restrictions, I’m in the mood to re-stimulate my grey cells (cellS?) 😉 and get my brain back into gear! I’m going to dive into the world of the Raspberry Pi! For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, the …

Ann’s 60th Birthday Celebrations

What could be more enjoyable than giving me an opportunity to plan a big ‘do’ of some sort! I love the nitty-gritty, with all the twists and turns, that lead up to the event itself! (But for this one, I didn’t expect things to be as ‘twisty-turny’ as they were!) 🙄. Planning Ann’s 50th was …

Website Makeover (2021)

Yes, it’s that time again! An opportunity to refresh the look and feel of my personal website – StevePalmer.com. With ‘you-know-what‘ giving many of us plenty of time on our hands at the moment, it’s been the perfect opportunity to pick up some new knowledge and skills! 🙂 In truth, I could have left it …

Christmas 2020 🎄

How was your Christmas? Even if you exclude the dreaded Coronavirus, we knew Christmas for us would be very different in 2020. For a start, it was our first one without Denis (where visiting him on Christmas Day had been a regular part of the festive break for the past few years). Christmas Day was …
