The Muppets: Bohemian Rhapsody

This seems to be making appearance on lots of blogs so I thought I'd add it to mine too.

Have had upload problems with this video, so have had to modify what I had originally intended to upload.

Allotment Update from Iphone

I wanted to test the video capabilities of my iphone for video allotment updates so here goes!

I found that the native files from my iphone are physically too large to upload to blogger, posterous or youtube, so I have edited and rendered via Premiere Elements to get the video below.

Help Me Decorate!

I've got my very own room on 12seconds now. It's called, what else - Tonto's Wild Tales!

The cool people over at have set it up so I can post my updates and link to Twitter, what I need now is some people to help me decorate it with videos of their own. So head over to my room, and leave me a video post answer to my first question. Not only can you leave me a video but you can help me run my allotment too!

If you don't have a account it's really fast to set one up, and you can even sign up with your Twitter username. Go on - you know you want to!

Always Bring The Weather With You

It's November and yet the temperature is still regularly reaching 15 celcius during the day. It's supposed to be the first month of winter and it is unseasonably mild. It is more like a typical autumn that winter, wet and mild.

As a gardener and allotment holder it's normally good to have some rain, it means that I have to do less watering of plants. We've had so much however that it means the ground is nearly impossible to dig due to the wet conditions. If this keeps up I will need to cover the exposed ground during the week in order for me to be able to dig it over at the weekend. Although the forecast at the moment is for rain on the weekend too, so that probably won't happen it that prediction holds true.

Makes sense for me to have installed a second water-butt at the allotment last weekend, in between the showers. It should be filling up nicely this week!

It's been too wet to do an allotment video update this weekend. Instead I bring you the weird sight of our Magnolia tree with it's very alien looking seed pods. It is Halloween afterall!

With apologies for the shaky camera work.
