I recognise that the coming referendum is a very serious business for folk years younger than me but I very much doubt I will be alive to be affected. It will take the dozy beggars years, probably decades to unravel our commitments…….Reminds me I must read ‘The Commitments’ again………….It is already bringing out the best and worst in our nation. Here are the first few comments from a post on GUIDO FAWKES. I am not the only one that thinks it is a farce worthy of the accolade entertainment. These comments were just grabbed in order not selected on the basis of religion, class or nationality.

Chicken Little Dave says EU exit is a leap into the dark. So how many who stayed on the Titanic actually survived, Dave? Do we really want to stay and be dragged under in this sinking ship?

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away........
We never used to give a shit about taking a risk.

Leaping out of a landing-craft into the sea during Operation Overlord wasn't exactly risk-free was it?

Don't mention ze war.
It upsets the Germans, through guilt.
And the French, through shame.
James Bolivar DiGriz Bill Quango MP • 15 hours ago
No, the French have no shame. They liberated France all on their own with no help of any sort from anyone else. At least that is what a Frenchman told me!

What about the bloody ungrateful Poles, Belgians and Greeks--at least the Norwegians send us a Christmas tree every year.
James Bolivar DiGriz Grumpy • 15 hours ago
And we didn't even liberate Norway, we just waited for the end of the war and the Germans surrendered!

And the Faithful Poles were abandoned to Common Purpose .
Bill Quango MP Grumpy • 14 hours ago
The Poles we can forgive. We never liberated them.

The Poles helped us fight WW2 don't forget.

Sucked us into it two years early too.

If EU regulations hadn't insisted on those dim light-bulbs, it would be a leap into the light.
It seems years since there was anything in the world to laugh about. I still have to catch up with Call me Dave’s rant about Boris’s conduct. I did hear he got quite personal and invoked Boris’s marital troubles. I thought that a bit rich coming from a bloke who enjoys unmentionable practices with dead pigs. The mind set of Public School boys is something of a mystery.
Here is a bit of video, at long last I have got to the end of an edit using Blender. Now all I have to do is keep editing away until I become proficient. The thing I really like about it is it’s flexibility, the ability to create a proxy file to show in the view window allows editing in real time and the fact that sound stays in sync. Transitions are hard but much easier since I noticed that frame numbers are displayed whilst editing them. Fade ins and outs are intuitive it’s as simple as key framing opacity. I will keep plugging away and next time attempt some complicated audio.
This would have been more accurately titled Moll and Alf Birding but I'd already got the title before I went out to shoot the video. The music credit is a new feature called text over, it needs a few more features but maybe on the next release. Blender usually has new stuff every twelve weeks or so. The downside is that they move things about so it's a bit of a treasure hunt for a day.
I have yet to decide which way to vote but suspect personality will play a small part.
