so much going on in Ross-on-Wye this past few days, this
week's 'Wyenot News' is a Big Issue. I shall not be rushing
out to get a dog so that I can stand outside the Maltings
performing vocals which make the lead singer of AC DC
sound like Julie Andrews, however. This particular 'big
issue' is on-line for all to either read, just look at
the pictures or to ignore, whichever takes your fancy.
covers a little of everything really as I had trouble
keeping up with all the photography and had to rush to
some events just to snap a quick photo. The event I spent
virtually the whole day with was Rock-on-Wye, so this
has a lot of coverage. I took over four hundred photos
there alone and have sorted some of these, along with
those taken at other places to put, for a limited period,
in the photo
have managed to get a couple of other admin tasks in over
the past few days also. When I first started Wyenot.com
in 2000, somebody went out and bought the second level
domain, 'wyenot.co.uk', hanging onto it, probably hoping
that I would pay a fortune to purchase it from them. Well
I did not intend to do that, so adopted the silent, patient
approach and it was recently relinquished. I bought it
on Friday, not for use but to protect my own interests.
I have set it up so that it diverts those typing it into
their browser to the main 'wyenot.com' address.
have also purchased the first and second level domains,
'wyenotnews.com' and 'wyenotnews.co.uk' for diversion
to this news magazine. The new 'wyenotnews' domains are
currently registering world wide and will be available
within 48 hours of this publication going live. Again,
this is just to protect my own interests, in case somebody
else buys them and uploads something distasteful, with
which I would not wish to be associated.
hope you all had a good holiday weekend and are well rested
for the months ahead. As much as I hate to think about
it, that was the last public holiday before Christmas.
My own holiday weekend was more of the 'busman's' variety,
so I intend to make tomorrow, Wednesday, the day of rest.
(Apart from hanging a new mirror in Bernice's house -
no, I haven't forgotten!)
a thousand people made their way to the riverside, 'Caroline
Symonds Gardens' on beautifully sunny holiday Sunday,
to enjoy a fantastic afternoon and evening of music, performed
by some of the best rock bands in the local area.
to Ross Town Council, Ross Lions, the Hope & Anchor,
Whitehouse Guest House and Riverside Inn, 'Rock-on-Wye'
was a great day of entertainment, which was put together
at the last minute by Town Councillors, John Davies, Paul
Truman and Jay Hill with the help of Unintentional Festival
Organizer, Caz Holbrook.
afternoon began rather earlier than planned, with an impromptu
performance by Hungarian folk singer, Peter Hornyak. Peter's
great performance was followed by the official opening
at 2:30 by Ross Town Mayor, Gordon Lucas. Renowned blues
duo, Sons of the Delta kicked off the rest of the days
events, with Mark Cole demonstrating his remarkable vocal
excellent performances were given by, Common Orange, Mars
Bonfire, The Alienz, The Dandy Lion Killers and Shoobop,
after which the crowd were warmed up by some fire breathing
by Liam Lee-Hynes, Danny Lenihan and a group of fire dancers.
the day, children were able to enjoy a mega slide and
bouncy castle. Various traders provided beer and refreshments.
