16th Dec 2010 Youtube - Life In A Day

I Blogged about Youtube recently and here's another. I read this article on the BBC last night and thought I'd share. If you haven;t got the time to read it, in a nutshell: Kevin MacDonald...

14th Dec 2010 Taking Risks With Your Kids

Having just written a review on a kids helmet it's nice timing that Boo Magazine have just published an article I wrote a while back on taking risks with kids. I can't re-print the whole thing...

9th Dec 2010 Night Shots

Earlier this year a bunch of mates and I headed up to Stanage one night to play in the snow. It was one of the most memorable nights ever. There was so much snow it defied belief. I Blogged about...

6th Dec 2010 Froggatt Today

Inspired by this UKClimbing article and Rachel Hoyland's Blog I thought I'd pop up to Froggatt this morning to see what conditions are like. I've also been being harangued by Dave Musgrove to...

22nd Nov 2010 BSES Bounty

Years ago (1992 actually) I went on an expedition to South Greenland with the British Schools Exploring Society (BSES). It was absolutely amazing. Can't recommend doing this sort of thing at the...

18th Nov 2010 Film Festivals

It’s a fast changing world we’re living in; so fast that I quite often question the need for such speed. It’s easy to sit back and reminisce about the good ‘ol days before we were on the...

26th Oct 2010 The Youngest Ever Billionaire

Went to the cinema last night (the awesome Showroom in Sheffield) to see The Social Network. Having just taken on an ex BBC Radio Producer (with vertigo!) as a part time PR specialist to help work...

21st Oct 2010 The Apprentice!

What a bunch of muppets! If you don't watch the Apprentice I'd strongly urge you to do so. It is one of the best bits of TV entertainment ever conceived in my mind. I watch very little TV, but...

15th Oct 2010 Avaaz.org

If you haven't heard of it you ought to check it out. It's quite probably the single best use of the internet and email of all time. Some 6 million people are members, a lot fewer than the likes...

14th Oct 2010 Climate Connundrum

I'm not sure what to make of this. Makes me feel a lot like a real-life puppet!  I know, it's not cool to question climate change, but I'm a sceptic by nature and there does seem to be a rising...

5th Oct 2010 Mountaineering Expedition Grant - Nick Estcourt Award

Something I administer as part of Heason Events is the Nick Estcourt Award which gives one substantial grant per year to a deserving mountain based expedition. This year’s award went to: 2010...

1st Oct 2010 Semptember Sun

You may have noticed that there wasn’t much happening on the Heason Events website during September. That was because we were taking advantage of the fact that our kids are still not at school...

16th Aug 2010 Read This Book

 For some reason I'd ignored this particular book my folks had recommended for some time. I can't tell you why. Perhaps it was the cover which isn't inspiring. Perhaps its the main title which...

6th Aug 2010 More River Antics

It seems that wild swimming is all the rage at present. First there was Daniel Starks's book 'Wild Swimming' which I reviewed here a while back. Then he produced a coastal version of the same book...

3rd Jun 2010 An Appeal

A few years ago we visited JoSiTo in Antalya, Turkey and had a wonderful time climbing there. Took our 1 year old with us so this is very pertinent. I just received a message from JoSiTo as...

1st Jun 2010 Watched Another Film

 When it came out I thought that Age of Stupid sounded a bit gimmicky. Not so it seems. The premise is straight-forward. Pete Poselthwaite is the sole survivor of the human race and resides in a...

8th Apr 2010 Obama

Barack Obama won his historic presidential victory largely because young people in the US took responsibility and turned out to vote. 57% - that's more than half - of eligible 18-24 year olds in...

19th Mar 2010 Watched A Film Last Night

 I watched a film last night - about blogging. It wasn't a particularly great film, though it was entertaining enough - Julia & Julia), but the premise reminded me that I hadn't blogged in a...

5th Feb 2010 High Definition

So what's it all about? This High Definition?   It's amused me for a year or two now that TV companies have been advertising High Definition programmes and hardware on regular televisions! They...

21st Jan 2010 The Snow!

I'll never tire of winters like the one we've just had / are just having (he says, crossing his fingers for another cold snap!). My memories of childhood are of sledging every year, days off...
