This blog is 95% made with an Android Smartphone …menus and widgets need a pegman like google maps to move widgets on an android so until that happens …Sept 2015 for a while posts are via the pc sadly the Android Smartphone isn’t working at the min!the menu and widgets are only updated occasionally...kk Love youtube music- would like a linked profile and links ... with a widget maybe to bring in new likes... spotify or myspace or tunehog or vimeo? ..... All the pages and everything is made with the Smartphone to prove that anyone with an Android could make a blog - everything made but the headers and widgets from 2011 to 2015!

Blogroll in a Pearltree soz authors the pearl isnt the latest blogpost!
A blog that plays around with images
The layout changes from here to two smaller columnsThe blog is intentionally unprofessional looking in the sense that it isnt sleek and modern. If you prefer that style, the author offers her apologies. As an individual who likes lots of info, bookshelves crammed with books not categorised or in tidy rows but just crammed full with books leaning, some on top of others, no sizing order, not hardback but just lovely information to dip into all over the place... and lots of creative stuff, embroidery, painting, internet programmes, lots of photos, cookery, home made bread and pizza and other recipies (morissminorarcana) then perhaps this blog will make sense. It would be nice however to be able to change the column sizes just slightly ...so if anyone out there knows how please advise.... so far the theme style wont allow it. I have made a few more modern approach wordpress blogs, one in particular for learning stuff... anything at all at http://businessstudiesalevelrevision2012.wordpress.com/

Contact Dilydaydream.email@example.comBlog Author Quals: (not that anyone needs them to blog) PGCE: Secondary: Bus Studies and ICT Print: RSA Typewriting level III The blog is not perfect - The aim is to make this blog using an Android Smartphone, so some edits and info may be a little less than perfect ... but it proves an android smartphone can make lots of pages and lots of posts and artwork! The objective is:- have a go a making a blog yourself on any topic but try to take your own pics and make your own artwork!! see the Making Blogs (with wordpress) page The blog really really is made with an android phone. There are thousands of blogs on wordpress.com and blogger - you may need an account with either system to start blogging (i.e. you need an email address and the ability to verify it) then you can also use the wordpress 'read blogs' option - a super world of ordinary people information. Info:- The blogging world is not aiming for marks for perfection - its aiming at ordinary people's creativity. For perfection try serif webplus software and create a website and keep improving it - they have free downloads of older versions of software! NB: There aren't any people in the pics on the posts as their permission would be needed to be uploaded and online ..Maybe a gallery soon... Lots of people do visit the park and other Nottm/Notts Attractions - 80K at Sherwood Festival Aug 11th 2013 - with a little help from the Tweeters!

No Harkenons (Dune series kk)
Ah the Rave days!
Maybe a Ford Prefect?
Download the app (it eats battery time and data!) Move the phone around with the app running to see the Stars!
Thats no invitation to anything dodgy, its about Astronomy kk
There’s a link with a disclaimer about events at the beeb and one or two local Astronomy groups, links on the Star page (soon if they arent there already!)
Lovely Daffodils, super springtime and lighter evenings, it’s good to know we are through the winter and on the way to Summer! OK it’s still Lent and our Easter celebrations are later this year but havn’t we had a mild easy winter.
Sadly no sledging in the park but from watching the ‘around the UK facebook’ link (where there are photos rolling in every day from Scotland by the roadside – a facebook group, Ireland by the roadside group and Beautiful Britain; plus other super people and groups posting amazing photo’s and lots of ordinary greenspace info), it seems other areas of the UK did have a cold stormy winter: So, depending on your age (or love of the deep winter weather) we could say have been really lucky!
In fact it feels almost as if the Midlands just hasnt really had a winter and that November (damp can’t make its mind up weather) just went on and on with a few sunshiny glimpses of time rolling on towards the brighter days. Sometimes its the contrasts of super hot summers and freezing cold winters that can give you that cheerful smiley feeling thats real appreciation of the in-between seasons of Spring and Autumn. Cant make its mind up weather doesnt have that ‘phew’ winter’s done feeling, theres only the challenge of depressing photo taking.
Thats my annual forecast for 2016-7. The idea that Spring starts in February, and Summer starts with the clocks going forward thats on the media just trys to take away our own sense of the reality of whats around us. Its crazy, and now folks it should be rainy showers of April and the blossom time; and better, decent not so grey photos (No extreme weather locally means really drab pics!)
Its all cool and as it should be, longer days mean the Hall and the Park are open longer – scroll down the link info below for all the details, Hall opening times at the top, gate opening times further down the link.
An annual car park ticket would make a cool Easter present too!
It would be good to live by the West or South coast maybe and take year round pics of the sea and coast, (or maybe for just half of each week or month and back home). There’s such a lovely feeling of sheltered space in the park even if you’ve just been on a trip out to watch the river just ten minutes away at Beeston or through the City towards the cold East Coast or a day in Derbyshire there’s a real calmness.
Of course as well theres lots of nice restaurants, pubs, cafes and take aways around Wollaton including the cafe in the park, Nottingham is quite a cool place too with lots going on and theres a twitter on the blog sidebar thats updated weekly with other places to visit (and then home).
Greenspace loving isnt boring its just keeping time with the real world! Every UK City has it’s entertainment, shopping and amazing parks and lots of those park links are on the UK pages. Over the years it would be good to visit lots of them, and for their local folk to find our City and visit Nottingham and even take a taz round the beautiful Wollaton Park, especially when there are Music Festies or Events (and then we can have the contrast of lots of quiet days).
Basically in Nottingham we’re half way to so many places from the S Coast to Scotland and almost the East Coast to West in Wales, and we even have an airport on our doorstep, all we could do with now is for some big employers to see how brill the people and the place is and set up on refurbished factory spaces like Technology Drive in Beeston, and make a bright future for the kids.
Have a Happy Spring Season.
