I re-wrote my blog battle story "The Enemy Within the Rings" so it had all the detail I wanted. Have a look: https://universeofpossibility.wordpress.com/2016/01/30/the-enemy-within-the-rings/ Enjoy! Simon 🙂
As it's the end of January I feel a move from Rock is needed for a bit, but which one to finish with? It's obvious... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1w7OgIMMRc4 Simon 🙂
This story had been written for on of my blog battles, but in my usual way had bitten off more than I could chew. So this is the longer version of the story that I had originally envisaged: The Enemy within the Rings "Slowing the ship to enter Saturn's orbit" was Hudson's voice in Commander... Continue Reading →

Back in Black - enjoyed best as it should be - along with some Iron Man action!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sp3yO7jVzn4 Simon 🙂
Not so long a go I worked with this guy who drove a Jaguar. I don't dislike many people, but I disliked him, he was controlling, devious, bitchy, wanted everything done his way and only his way and was full of himself (he wasn't as good as he thought he was). He came to work... Continue Reading →
There’s a Rose on a mission here – give here a hand by having a look over her blog and following if you like! 🙂
So, Valentine’s Day is less than a month away. It’s pretty apparent that I’m going to be single this Valentine’s Day. I’m not too upset about it, it’s just an opportunity to treat yo self.
I’ve been writing down goals for myself recently. By the end of January, I’m hoping for 400 followers on WordPress. By Valentine’s Day, I’m reaching for 500 followers.
So, if you want to get me a Valentine’s Day present – this is what you can do! If you have ever given a small thought to reblogging me, linking back to Hookup Culture, or promoting my blog – now would be an awesome time 🙂 I am currently at 384 followers.
I’ve been working really hard on building my following and I am soooo thankful for all the new bloggers that have come into my life recently, as well as the ones I have been in…

With more AC/DC it's time to blow out those cob webs from your head, if any are left after yesterday! I would like to be in Erika's car with the roof down blowing this tune out for sure! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCqEkWY8ekQ Simon 🙂
I say this and I had to share it, what it is to be able to see a sight like this millions of miles away at another world. Words aren't needed... just to see. Simon 🙂 Credit: NASA http://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/jpl/pia18348/crescent-tethys-and-rings
Get the volume turned up, wherever you are. This is best loud to blow you mind. AC/DC's Thunderstruck. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVBAeS5t5nc Simon 🙂 Rock though your day!
There is a language used in Star Wars that I hadn't realised until recently. Well really it's an alphabet which converts English. It's called the the Aurebesh alphabet and you can see it below: This is so geeky and cool, I want to find a font for it so that I can write a short... Continue Reading →
Just more Led Zep... Kashmir https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDwotNLyz10 Simon 🙂
Taken the other day on the way to work, the beautiful intricate pattern of the icy hairs on the branches, the red sunrise and the twisted old Oak all adding their bit to the scene. Simon 🙂
There's nothing like deep space discovery to excite. But when we look closely at our own world, we get surprises too. Things don't work quite as we thought they did and expand our understanding. The Van Allen belts are more complicated than we thought they were and I love the analogy of music used to... Continue Reading →

I've written this as a story submission for Georgie Girl's writing competition. I hope you all enjoy it, it's a bit of a deviation from my usual stories: The Pink Earphones Working in an office has always been dull for me. Sure I love what I do, but I can't sit in the office all... Continue Reading →
Continuing this musical exploration of my rock playlist , it's never complete without some Led Zep and with the fantastic Immigrant Song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hC-T0rC6m7I Simon 🙂
This church at night is so forbidding. No comfort of warmth or light. Just the resting places of those who once had dream and walked this land. What stories do these branches keep secret? What tales could those sleeping tell? All that is to be heard is the Owl and the Fox, their calls chilling... Continue Reading →
