Have Fun in 2017

Lots to look forward to,  but first we need some snow for sledging and,  sigh,  that means icy cold!

Super coffees and snacks in the coffee bar and at the caravan cafe,  lots fun on the adventure playpark! A New dinosaur exhibition coming in the Hall and lots happening in the E and W Midlands and S Yorks for days out – some just car parking costs, others more expensive.

Two Pantomimes in Nottingham and others in Derby,  Leicester, Lincoln,  Sheffy,  Birmingham – see the local ones!


Heres hoping the ‘Related Posts’ option just selected works,  meanwhile heres an annotated version
Looking back to 2012 (see the yearly archive page) and some wordpress.com video info.

Basic Post about the snowy winter 2012:


Video complications:-

Theres a Sledging vid from 2012 as well but it’s not simple to run for some reason,  app api’s,  wordpress content. It’s fun to look back and see the fun the snow brings though.

This Flickr sledging video might only play if you have a Flickr account it seems that on my smartphone the vid-media player doesnt show as an option when i click the link but opening the option to open the flickr app does come up.

It may be my system or Flickr that renders the vid difficult to play the easiest route is via a Flickr account.

 Sadly basic wordpress.com doesn’t always allow videos to be uploaded and played directly without a card number and subscription payment (£85 pa) lodged with wordpress.  It’s not necessarily the best system,  maybe it would be worth upgrading (and hoping Flickr is compatible) but payung with paypal would be safer. 

Often music or vid links from Facebook for example have similar hassles.

The solution may be to download and learn and use wordpress.org at some point for more functionality; but thats lots pc space and against the simple philosophy of this blog being 95% made on an android smartphone.

 It would be cool if wordpress.com agreed free videos on wordpress.com in 2017,  but possibly its an anti ‘dodgy info’ mechanism in which case it’s cool.


You may need a Flickr account to play the fun in the park sledging video – one good point is Flickr doesnt have ads. The same applies for all online vid sites,  youtube,  vimeo etc.

 Just think everyone in the park having fun in 2012 is now five years older. If the vid downloads when you click on it,  its mp4 i think. It was taken 5 February 2012.

Complicated just to view a Flickr vid? Maybe Try Flickr.
