My Favourite Android Apps

I have finally been in possession of one of these smart type phones for little over a week and whilst I dread my next phone bill, I have had lot’s of fun playing with it and downloading all the fun apps. So here is a quick run down of my favourite ones so far;

AndroidLet’s start with the usual suspects;

Now to the less obvious…
Volcano Report
Scuba Exam Lite
Speak It
Bajan Lingo
Urban Dictionary
New Scientist
QR Droid
Science Facts
Caribbean Foods

I am a total science/scuba geek!

I would give you a link to them all – but that is far too easy! So go, scoot, find the pretties!

Over and out


p.s – I have only had this phone for a small amount of time – so all recommendations are welcome!

A Tale of Sausages and Cider…

Sometimes a weekend will come along that will stand out in memory for a long time to come. This weekend just gone by was exactly that. (Granted some of it is a little fuzzy – more on that later)
When an invite popped up on my facebook to a ‘Sausage and Cider Festival‘ I didn’t even check the date in case I was busy – instant ‘I’m in!’ ┬áThe Clovelly Bay Inn was holding this amazing event!

There were – 4 types of mash, beans or green beans, 3 types of gravy and SEVEN TYPES OF SAUSAGE!!! Never mind the extensive selection of over 21 ciders!

What can I say – I was more than slightly tiddled after a few ciders, and then spent the weekend craving more sausages! I’m off to find the local butcher who supplied the sausages – Moostone Farm in Wembury to order a box of meat from them! Can life get any better than a box of meat turning up on your door – no, I thought not!

Big thanks to Terri, Martyn, Dean, Paula, Tom, Tracey and Richard for making the day so ‘eventful’ and just brilliant!
