Minecraft - cross platform gaming!

On September 20th a large update was pushed out to many versions of Minecraft, regardless of the device. Even the Xbox One got a completely new release with a free upgrade for anyone with the 'Xbox one edition'

Three versions of me, in the same room. Terrifying.

Ode to a pickle factory

The smells all have meaning,
throughout the year,
much more than any sounds that you'll hear.

Mincemeat for Christmas,
Pickles for spring...
and, I think, Mango Chutney
And other spiced things.

So here's to the factory
that makes all that food.
You are noisy, and ugly,
but smell generally good


Written 26th March 2014, at the time I worked in Greenham Common, in a building opposite the English Provender pickle factory
