* * Isle of Wight * * Well it’s not long now (Tuesday) that I will be off to the Isle of Wight. I shall be going down to stay with my grandparents the day before and they will take me down to Portsmouth on Tuesday.
I has been a while since I last went down and I am looking forward to seeing my Dad who lives on the Island and also my friends who I am still in contact with like Tammi!
If possible I will still blog whilst I am there, although I don’t think I will be able to post any photos whilst I am away, but if I can I will.
Whilst I am away it will be my Dads birthday, but I am not sure what to get him (last year I got him a Mobile phone). I may take him out for the night and we both love our Real Ale.
I am also looking forward to see his motorbike which is a BSA built in the late 1950’s and has been highly customised. The last time I saw the bike it was in pieces as he was unable to get hold of some parts for the engine.
Well thats enough for today!
I have just run all my blog posts through a Spell Checker and boy did I make some obvious spelling errors! I have of course now corrected the ones I found.
In honour of this, I have a Poem!
Eye halve a spelling chequer, It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue, Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word, And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write, It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid, It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite, Its rarely ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it, I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect in it’s weigh, My chequer tolled me sew.
Last night down the pub 2 of my colleagues and some of the pub regulars and myself were playing “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” and managed to win first Â£5 then later Â£6 (don’t remember how much we put in though).
* My Holiday * Looks like I will be going to the Isle of Wight week starting 26th due to not having a lot of money and I get paid on the Friday.
When I got in from work at about 5pm, I went straight to bed as I was too tired. I slept till nearly midnight and then came online to try to work out how to get Moblogger to work. It is almost there, but does not seem to want to upload the images to any directory on my FTP site, although it does connect!
I will e-mail the guy who created it to see if has any ideas!
* * PhotoBlog * * If I get the program to work, I will hopefully on a regular basis post images direct from my phone. In the meantime, when you view this Blog there may be posts which I have posted to test and will most likely say “Test Post” but I delete them after a short period!
I love this piece by Edgar Allen Poe, so thought I would share.

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore–
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“‘Tis some visiter,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door–
Only this and nothing more.”
