Last night I ordered a new DMX light controller. This will give me more control over my LED par cans, enabling me to produce better quality light shows for my own band and performances, not to mention other performers I work with.
It's 20th February 2014, Ilfracombe, North Devon, 1:20 pm. A 4.1 magnitude earth quake shakes North Devon.
I felt myself thrown forward, and Purdy, my cat, lept from my lap. She has been asleep. I was a little puzzled to what had happened. Seconds later the Twitter and Facebook world confirmed the tremor.
Many in North Devon tweeted, I tweeted this.https://twitter.com/paulkclews/status/436493248341999616
I later tweeted this picture.
This lead to the great British press requesting use of my picture. Here are a couple of the requests.
I said yes to them all. These articles were the result.
None of them asked me how the lamp got broken. They all seemed to assume the earth quake broke the lamp. Well here is the full story about the broken lamp.
Well at the beginning of this blog post I explained how I had been thrown forward and Purdy jumped. We were both frightened, Purdy far more than me. She jumped so high, she landed on the lamp an broke it. So there you go, did the earth quake damage the lamp? Well, yes and no.

On Monday, Stiff Little Fingers played in Bath. I had bought my ticket the week before. I try to see them at least once every tour, hence the amount of SLF t-shirts I own. However, I failed to see them.
I left work at Chulmleigh Primary School, where I was teaching guitar that day, at 4pm. I was traveling in my new to me Y reg Land Rover Freelander that I had purchased from Robins Garages, Ilfracombe, only two weeks previously. I was listening to my 5live podcasts. Approaching junction 19 on the M5, I noticed a whining noise from the vehicle, then a burning oil smell. I felt it would be a good idea to get off the motorway to investigate the noise. I found a safe place to stop, then called Robins Garages. Paul Yabsley, the owner of the garage and person whom sold the Freelander to me, answered the phone. It is now 5.55pm.
It turned out to be the differential on the Freelander that had broken. Unfortunate, and unforeseen. It was good that I had stopped. Unfortunate I missed the gig.
Paul went to extraordinary lengths to get me home at his expense. The car is now being fixed on the three month guarantee. I wish to take the opportunity to say thank you to Paul. He was amazing on Monday, and he was not feeling to well either. I really appreciate what he did for me.
