Save a Little, Save a Lot...

When Yorkshire Water carried out a survey of 11,000 of their customers and discovered that 98% of them were keen on saving water and 96.5% were actively making efforts to save water, they decided to give everyone in god's own county a helping hand.

So as part of their ongoing commitment to water conservation, Yorkshire Water have launched the Save a Little, Save a Lot campaign focusing on simple water saving tips that can be fitted into everyday life, AND they're giving away free Water Saving Packs so every Yorkshire household can do their bit to help the environment. Not only that, for every Water Saving Pack ordered, Yorkshire Water is donating 10p to WaterAid to make the world a better place too.

For Yorkshire Day ...

For those of us lucky enough to live in God's own county, every day is Yorkshire Day. We only celebrate in public once a year (on August 1st) because we don't like to brag. Well, not too much.

Yorkshire has much to recommend it: You're never too far from a decent pint or a half decent poet; Our puddings, pies and property prices are better than yours; It's the birthplace of legends (see Sean Bean and Brian Blessed), and it's not Lancashire. Hurrah.

But most of all Yorkshire has all the best scenery ....

And Then I Saw Craig Charles ...


Having recently lost my Comic Con virginity in a quest to meet Red Dwarf's second technician Rimmer and series III mechanoid Kryten, when I heard Craig Charles aka Lister was going to be at Wakefield's Unity Works with his Funk & Soul Review nothing, but nothing, was going to keep me away...

I Met Chris Barrie!


I am not a person who frequents Comic Cons as a rule and, if it wasn't for Daughter,1 geek extraordinaire, I wouldn't even know what a Comic Con was to be honest.

It is, if you are unsure, a convention where like-minded people gather together to explore their own peculiar fascinations in all that is, well, unconventional. There is much dressing up, geekery and nerdishness and even more science fiction, fantasy, super, and not so super, heroes.

I wouldn't, usually, be seen dead at a real-live comic con, but Wakefield's first ever such event held the tantalising possibility of mingling with one of my own heroes, the extraordinarily talented actor and impressionist Chris Barrie.
