Philosophy
Life is what you make of it and you should live each moment as fully as you can. This page will be about how I try to live life to its fullest which includes listening to music I love, snapping photos that capture precious moments and cooking meals that I can enjoy with my husband.

A Celebration of Caledonian Soul

For the third week in a row my husband and myself will be guests on host Steve Bate’s radio show on Fylde Coast Community Radio. It is quite a thrill to be choosing the music as husband and I spoke of wanting to dj on a radio station many years ago! Tonight we will be playing Scottish music due to the upcoming vote on Scottish independence. Expect to hear some music from the Proclaimers, Teenage Fanclub & faves The Fast Camels. Hope you join us!

fastcompany:

CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s audacious bid to rewire the app economy—and make his social network more relevant than ever.

Although Zuck has outlined his three-, five-, and 10-year goals for employees, he has never crisply explained publicly how all of these recent moves fit together, and that has gotten tech watchers buzzing about whether he and the company have lost their way. But after dozens of interviews with current and former employees, rivals, advertisers, developers, and users, it becomes clear that Zuckerberg has launched Facebook on an aggressive and potentially brilliant strategy—one that has very little to do with the company you think you know based on your desktop use of its social network. [Facebook granted Fast Company access to several company executives, but not to Zuckerberg or COO Sheryl Sandberg.] To make Facebook more relevant than ever, the company has targeted the very core of the app economy to fulfill its vision for the next half-decade. As the six lessons that follow illuminate, the great social network of the early 21st century is laying the groundwork for a platform that could make Facebook a part of just about every social interaction that takes place around the world.

Mid 80’s album that had escaped my attention over the last 20 years even though I own the CD. Wasn’t sure if it would sound good still but it does! Some music surprisingly does hold up quite well. Check it out if you know nothing about the band’s music. Quite low key.

Endless Ride by SonicRapture Just returned from Liverpool’s International Pop Overthrow Fest which I have attended 8 years in a row. Every year there is always a new band that captures my attention. Sonic Rapture from Berlin, Germany was truly incredible sonically and visually. This particular song was one of my immediate favorites from the short set. The Hammond organ brings to mind another perennial fave Deep Purple.
