So after much delay and hesitation, here is the final video from the amazing Friends of the Earth gathering in 2017.

We once again return to 'Enoch House' in Colchester, Essex to have the privilege of listening to and documenting memories.
Whereas last time the group got great enjoyment talking about food, this time around we were gathered in our circle to share our earliest memories of work and of becoming an adult.

It's time once again to hear the stories and memories of people living in some of the retirement venues around Essex. For this latest outing, Johnno Casson and his volunteers were at Enoch House in Colchester where there was a sizable gathering of residents to recall their experiences of food.
I wanted to take the time and go through the services I use and see how they fit into the 'Year of Betterment' mentality that I’m creating for 2018. To remind you of the three main themes of the year we have getting into shape (other than round), speaking French and achieving zen-like productivity.
Before I start reviewing I wanted to say that I have no connection to these services or companies (other than being a customer) and that this will be the last article for a little while on this subject, next time there will be a video for you to enjoy. As always, there are the TL:DR (too long, didn't read) and audio versions at the end of this article.

When I made my very public promise to become more productive, I started to search for a great new workflow to get my blog posts from idea to completion. I also began searching the various app stores to familiarise myself with some of the great applications for creative writing. I could feel myself being seduced by features and sleek user interfaces; then I stopped.
I had almost forgotten some of the first bits of advice that I had given on this subject: you already have all the tools you need to get started. I didn’t need a new flash application or a great new service (with a very reasonable subscription price I'm sure). What I needed to do was to look beyond the distractions and start writing, so here are my easy to follow steps to maintaining a consistent, quality output.

I wanted to talk to you today about how I'm trying to change the way I approach life by swapping the word ‘can’t’ with ‘don’t’.
Here is another video from the brilliant Friends of the Earth Basecamp 2017 .
I was kindly asked by Johnno Casson to document the Warm & Toasty club at the Colchester Arts Centre on the 28th May, 2017. Johnno asked me to make a video featuring some of the great artists that performed at the event.
