The other week something happened vaguely interesting enough to try turn into a blog post, so here’s my effort to try turn it into a blog post.
It was the early hours of Saturday morning (19th June), and after several days of sweating my nuts off due to the heat/humidity of the weather, it had now gone cloudy with a hint of possibily raining.
This mean’t once again my Dad turned the gas fire on in the livingroom (even though it wasn’t cold enough to need it on), and once again he’d whacked-up the thermostat for the central heating to levels not even needed in the middle of winter unless the weather flips to the sort of thing only normally encountered by polar explorers.

I started this year kind of wanting to try a bit more to push forward with the content creator thing writing my blogs here and elsewhere, as well as try and get my YouTube channels back on track.
As with a lot of content creator types who mostly rely on going outside with a camera doing things to get their content, that has pretty much gone right down the s****er.
This has also had a knock-on effect on trying to cobble together blog posts on things that don’t require me to go outside to do things to be able to put together some content.
I kind of get ideas for things I could write when I’m away from where I can actually write things down, but then when I’m sat back down here where I can actually write them I’ve forgotten most of it. Or just as I’m about to try write something, I get called away to do other stuff.
I’m just really creating this post to try get out of the funk by writing any random s**t that comes out of my head to try get back in the habit of more frequently tinkering with my websites and social media. Read more ›
By the start of 2016 I figured it was probably about time to invest in a new mousemat, as my original from 1999/2000 was starting to look a bit grotty + the rubber/neoprene stuff it was made of was starting to come to bits.
Getting back from town about half an hour ago, and as a sign of just how exciting my life is right now, I checked under my shoes on the way in, and I’m not sure how my Karrimor Walking Shoes are this clean underneath them considering the amount of mud and dog turds I had to dodge my way past to make it to town and back…..
Recently, due to a lack of availability of chocolate, I decided to attempt an experiment at making my own out of what is essentially the binder mix for Chocolate Cornflake Cakes / Chocolate Rice Krispy Cakes.
I put it in a cake baking tin that’d been chilled in the freezer, and left it in the freezer for a couple of hours. Read more ›
It has been a while since I’ve posted on here, and a while since I’ve posted on there (until a few minutes ago).
I made my first steps blogging here on my own wordpress powered blog a long time ago under my other john-duck.co.uk domain name, then spent some time tinkering with other website and blog projects under brand names I had a crack at creating after some troll prick decided to be a pain in the arse on my personal accounts.
I dabbled a bit with my blogspot account in that time, but as I think I blogged on here some months ago, have decided to press this one back into service and switched it to my other personal domain name.
I’ve decided to try press on with this one seeing as the Adsense ads on the blogspot thing quit displaying months ago, and I have been working on the back-end of this and my other blogs the past few months.
I’ll probably use blogspot occasionally still if I need to write down blog ideas and this one has technical gremlins at some point.
I’m trying to think of ideas for an improved site banner / logo thing than the one currently in use:
Back in July I screen-recorded a bit of gaming action on my PC using the XBOX app thingy on my Windows10 based PC (windows button + G key) to test out a few things, and did it with the game Counter Strike: Global Offensive, or CS:GO as it’s also known as.
After an assortment of disruptions that mean’t having to hold off on my editing and uploading, I’ve finally got round to uploading the things in January 2019. Read more ›
