I’m starting again…

I had stopped blogging, but now I will start again.

Today was Remembrance Sunday and as an Explorer Scout it was my duty to join in the parade through the town. Unlike the Army Cadets, we scouts do not march, rather we saunter. You could even say we are worse than the young scouts behind us.

When I got home I still had my homework (or as they’d have us say home ‘learning‘ because learning at home isn’t a chore) . The time of my life has come when I shall be taking exams for the sake of it, Mock exams. I have done any revision yet and it is getting late now least that’s my excuse.

All homework to a ,hopefully good enough standard ,without boring me, I borrowed my brothers new game. Skyrim. I played it yesterday and agreed with my brother that it is one brilliant game. Sadly my brothers going back to University tomorrow and I wont be able to borrow it again. Luckily I had been paid the other day so Skyrim is on order from amazon.

Be sure to comment and a review is in the pipeline should there be interest for a Skyrim review.

Choosing a topic…

I believe I should choose a topic to blog. I think I might on with a diary. As well I could get another person to join in.


Who are you…

I know its a great song, but if I’m going to have a blog then my audience,you guys, might as well know a bit about me.

So, I’m Tom, 16, putting me in year 11. As well as school I’m going my Gold Duke of Edinburgh(DofE) with my Explorer group. Some of my know to do your DofE your do An expedition, physical, skill and you have to volunteer. For physical I go canoeing and me and my goood friends hope to canoe our expedition. For skill I’m going Remote Control construction and racing, so I’ve bought a FTX Vantage brushless RC buggy.Me and my friend do our volunteering at our local wood, chopping and burning mostly. Doing this in the North West of England.

Today’s Youtube channel is FPSRussia, a brilliant guy shooting guns and strange review style.

Heres his video with the AA 12, the fully automatic shotgun.


Youtube…

Well I’m back from parent’s evening and its all good, but I still see it as boring and somewhat unneeded.

You may have noticed, I have added a new page, Youtube I’ve called. Simply because its where I’ll post youtube channels to subscribe to and must see videos. Only one channel up there now but that’ll change with time, more pages will be added, promise.

Today…

Good day, so far that is ,I’ve still got parents evening to go to. Though I can’t see a bad report, only wasted time and uncomfortable time, having people talk about.

Did how ever learn something unexpected. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, heroes of me and many others, being the creators of the first plane. According to an article read by my English teacher. the plane was created for use in war. When interviewed on the reason why the couple had created the contraption Wilbur simply stated,”War”.

Hopefully when I’m back from parents evening I be in the mood to write something more substantial.

Start them Young…

Just came across this photo on a friends facebook. That kid doesn’t look to happy to canoeing or is it kayaking, though that ‘boat’ is definitely one of  the coolest thing ever.

Tried to find the difference between I kayak and canoe, but it seems most people are as clueless as me. Though I believe the craft are kayaks.From a forum post I understand that:

In a canoe you sit on a seat or kneel whereas in a kayak the you are  seated with legs in front.

Also that when canoeing you generally uses a single bladed paddle whereas kayaks have twin bladed paddles.


I’ve Decided…

… I’m buying a ukulele. I’ve debated this for a while and during my life I’ve played Piano, Guitar and Clarinet though I’ve stopped playing this instruments many years ago. Gonna learn ukulele in my own time but before then I still have to find a uke.
