Just reflecting on Thursday. As usual some great performances. My strongest
memories are of Feast of Fiddles and Steeleye Span. Wish I had seen more of wRants
and Máire Ní Chathasaigh & Chris Newman (I cut and pasted that). I could hear them
in the distance. Nigel was impressed with Chris.

Met Martin who was interested in my use of ArtRage 2.11 from Ambient Design. His
wife uses Corel Draw but I know nothing about that package. "How long has it taken
you to learn the package?" he asked. Well the Steeleye Span picture is my 13th
impressionist piece. I suppose I have spent 3-4 hours using the application, so far.

Met Nigel who sells pipe fittings to laboratories, see FTI. we had a very wide ranging
discussion, setting up mini music festivals, omnipotence, wife's views on our purchasing
of toys, why did you come to Cropredy and a bit about mind mapping and
MindManager. So Nigel now has my card and will drop in for lunch at a pub as he goes
past me in New Alresford, Hampshire on his trips to Southhampton University down the
M3 from Gillingham in Kent. Odd that because Michael Birley (see below) had been to
Gillingham in Dorset for a party yesterday.

Queued a long time for my first beer. Michael had his from the indoor bar! But we
talked about Cabre and Dealmap and how we attract people to our businesses with our
web sites whilst queuing for 20 minutes. Both of us have a new one under
development. This is us in festival mode we have quite different business personas.
Meanwhile in the background Swamp Thing are doing their thing.

Finally some one from Ecademy has agreed to meet up with me at Cropredy (see Are
you near Cropredy, near Banbury this Thurs, Fri or Sat). Michael Birley just back in
from a party in Dorest, saw my very recent message on the BlackStar Skype chat. As
he lives only 5 miles away, he had to come round to the Red Lion for a pint. Should
have remembered he lived nearby, it came up in our face to face or telephone chat a
couple of months ago.
