Community and variety are certainly alive and well in Colchester thanks to Johnno Casson and 'The Warm & Toasty Club'. On the 14th of October 2018, the Colchester Arts Centre was filled for a celebration of the ‘Colchester Memory Afternoons’ which are events dedicated to preserving and honouring the memories and experiences of people living in the region.

I was really proud to be asked by ‘The Warm & Toasty Club’ to interview Dave as part of our Colchester Memory Afternoons project.

The time for debate is long over, now we must act! Get inspired by Friends of the Earth's latest gathering, Basecamp and then get more information.

As a matter of a full disclosure, the online backup solution I’ll be recommending is called Backblaze and I have a referral link to them. This means, should you follow my advice and decide to become a customer then not only do you get one month of unlimited, online back up for free but at the same time so will I. We both win, anyway I wanted to make that clear before we start so, on with the article.

After the longest time, I finally decided to invest in a smartwatch. I’ve been quite a connoisseur of unique and interesting watches, but a while ago I became a backer of a new type of smartwatch. However, that project has taken longer than expected to come to the fruition (at the time of writing people are still waiting, but that’s part of the problem with crowdfunding ... anyway I digress). I began to feel a creeping desire to use a smartwatch.

Ultimately I went for the Apple Watch Series Three and below I want to outline my reasons why and how I've managed to incorporate it into my productive day.

I've been giving my relationship with Facebook a lot of thought over the past months and while on holiday with my girlfriend in France I made some decisions.

Here is some extra content from the latest Warm & Toasty Club Memory Afternoon.

Featuring news and music that you won't want to miss.

We return to the Lion Walk Activity Centre to reminisce about the cultural side of earlier life. This time we talked about how people let their hair down. From going to the pictures to showing off their moves in the dance halls, there were warming tales of how people relaxed, had fun and at times found love.

I’ve have a bit of a hiatus so I thought I would let you know what i’ve been doing and let you know some of the great things coming to this site very soon.

The rain was pouring outside but we had warmth and sunshine at the Lion Walk Activity Centre where the latest 'Memory Afternoon' was gathered to share stories of their younger days and the games they enjoyed.

The Warm & Toasty Club is back, providing a much loved and needed cure for social isolation in the form of their 'Memory Afternoons'. We return to Enoch House in Colchester where the residents gather for an informal chat about some of their happiest memories.

Well after being on YouTube for years, I finally got a copyright claim that I wanted to dispute.

This is what happened …
