Welcome to the Future

So then it’s here, the year 2011. Feels a bit like 2010, but then that also felt like 2009, and so on and so forth.

As we all know it’s just a number and just a measurement in time or even existence! Still I digress, what is meant to be here is a very simple Happy New Year to all of you readers out there, of which I’m aware there are at least two of you. Also I hope you had a fantastic Christmas and got everything you asked for!

Right then, pleasantries over, now time for business. It has been a few months since I last posted anything on here, and there have been many developments in different areas of my life. So try try and keep you updated here goes:

Website

Well after about three or four redesigns I think I may have the look for nee-nah.com right! For those of you who don’t know I have one or two different blogs and photo galleries online and decided a while back to make my domain, nee-nah.com the index site for all of these. So please feel free to pop over and see what you can see, eh!

Railways & Photography

So this has been a tad up and down on both fronts, as ultimately my photography rarely goes on with out my interest in railways taking president, however I did take some nice pics, in all that snow we had over the festive period, which can be found on my MobileMe Gallery.

The Railways and Photography has taken a dip in the latter parts of the year with very little in the way of trips out through September to December. Other than a delightful visit to Freightliner Crewe Basford Hall organized by Phoenix Railtours. So good in fact that I will be frequenting the site again in the next two weeks as I have a visit also planned on January 15th!

On the hardware front I have purchased myself a new digital compact, in the form of the Sony CyberShot DSC HX5V, very nice as well as a new pair of binoculars, Bushnell H20 10×42. And to top it all off at Christmas a Jessops FlashGun for my Canon EOS DSLR. New toys ahoy! Just need to test them out now, will be doing that very soon especially with the bins at Toton.

NYE AKA

The above simply meaning New Years Eve Also Known As. Marc’s new bar which opened  before Christmas in the old site of Yates. And low and behold I did DJ on NEw Years Eve to  pub full of real people who payed to go in! Did feel good after about 10 years, but hey you never loose it!

Smoking is Cool

Again I refer you to an older post of mine, whereI quit smoking. This did not last for long. As a new years resolution I am starting again, and so far I am doing OK, nearly 3 whole days and no cravings, and Im not even using patches!!!! so will I endeavor to stay uncool forever, we will see, watch this pace peeps!

2011…

So for this year there is much to look forward too, A life with out fags,  which in turn should give me more cash!  An exciting year ahead at work, me hopes and much more including something very new, which will be elaborated upon here in the near future.

So thank you for reading this silly little blog, I surely does not help you in life but I think it may help me somewhat, only slightly in trying to explain myself.

Till later on, bye bye!

Thanks…

I Just thought I would say a little thank you to my good friend Magic Moir. Because of his comments on a previous post, he gave me inspiration to submit some recent photos for publication. It has paid off as I have once again had a photo published. Again it is in The Railway Herald, so no payment as its a free magazine, but still its all good. So a big thanks to you sir, you have helped me get my third image published.

Nice one sir, nice one.

This is the image below, click on it to get more info on my Flickr page:

Powerhaul

Here I am again, back from the cold and wet crappy weather. Its been a while but im back here talking dribble. The title of this post refers to a new breed of locomotives for the UK. The GE Powerhaul locos for Freightliner. I managed to sneak into Stoke Gifford Sidings in Bristol the other day to see one of these new locos. Pictures can be found on my flickr photostream or here:

Now before I bore you to death talking about this i’m not going to go on about what they are and so forth just how I happened to know where said loco was.

Over the past few years rail enthusiasts (thats what I like to be know as, not a spotter!) have taken full advantage of the internet and email lists. Without these lists and updates I would have had to have waited until these locos were out and about on the national network, not knowing when they would turn up.

Now some within the railway community would say that this is cheating, but when you get to where I am with the hobby, I need less than I have seen on the national network, so I feel that this makes it a bit more fun going out and hunting these things down.

Hey there you go, if none of this makes sense then, poo to you Im just rambling and I like it!
