Ice Hockey

The great game of Ice Hockey is played on a Rink internationally that is 30 meters wide by 60 meters long. In North America the rink size is approximately 200 feet long by 85 feet wide. Older rinks like the old Boston Garden were smaller and not consistent between buildings. This makes the international rink wider by approximately 15 feet.

These narrow NA rinks make for a more congested ice surface. The international surface makes for a more exciting game and for the player it provides more room for an attacking style of play.

Bloggin' Vloggin' no it's Ploggin'

Blogs, well I don't read too many. I have a friend and client who is a pro blogger. She does blogs for TV and Film companies. I prefer photos, they say more than words. So I tried a bit of bloggin just to keep a central location for many links I like to visit.

If I need to say something I can say it here.

I finally have a place to show the first Comedy based on Comic Sans that was filmed for Channel 4's show This is a Knife back in April.

Magazine Publisher Liars are Merchant Bankers

Does anyone else have problems with Magazines who request photographs for their articles that you shot or other imagery and promise since they ‘don’t have a budget’ that they will ‘definitely’ give proper credit to the photographer?

Out of the dozen or so magazines in the last 2 years I’ve had photographs published, the ones that don’t pay often tell me that they will give credit, and so far only 20% have done so when the magazine is printed.

Are they all just a bunch of merchant bankers?

magazine 'Helix' from Australia and the UK 'Design Week'.

Faul leaves the putana

TALKING about the misery of Iraq on Sky News's Adam Boulton show, Heather Mills McCartney was her usual self.

Passionate. Committed. Hard as nails. Fake as a nine-bob note.

How long has Heather had a Liverpool accent? Was it a wedding present?

Does she have a pre-nuptial agreement with Sir Paul that means she gets custody of the accent in the event of a divorce?

Maybe this bolt-on accent is sub-conscious, a way of deepening her bond with hubby.
