View Article  i heard the news today on boy
I got back after a great dinner at my brothers to find a small disaster on my plate, my Zune library was corrupt, I had a nice big warning dialogue back on the screen and thought "eek". Well i tried to reconnect the zune and the library would not connect.. It send that I had no items in my library but everytime i tried to add a monitor folder the library would lose the setting.

So I've had to do the biggy and remove the Zune Software and start again from scratch. One intresting thing was that when I connected the Zune player it said it could only be connected as a guest as the Zune was already registered on another computer or I could wipe the pairing and start the library from scratch.....thanks...I've got about 22% through my 34,000 items so far and I think its going to be a long day rebuilding.

Oh well we live and learn

View Article  walking in Wanstead
Went for a walk on Saturday up to Wanstead Park,

History lesson: Since the time of Henry VIII, a grand manor house stood at the heart of the Wanstead Park eastate. Unfortunately, in 1812 the widowed owner of the estate re-married to the nephew of the Duke of Wellington who prompty squandered her fortune on his extravagant lifestyle. The house and grounds were sold off to repay his debts.

Today, all that remain are the decaying remnants of the formal gardens, dating from the early eighteenth century. These gardens include a series of artificial ponds, the most interesting of which are are the ornamental waters which are maintained as a nature reserve.anis great for photographs

Having been a decadent English estate, naturally Wanstead Park has its share of follies, including a ruined grotto boat-house and a mock-classical Temple.
