About Ruth Livingstone
Reimagined by Liz Brewster with original score by Phil Allcock. Each Thursday evening come rain or shine, you will find the devoted children and adults that make up the small theatre company Stagestruck practicing for their next big performance. In February they intend to put on Witches by Roald Dahl but, it is a little bit different as it has been adapted by their Liz Brewster.
It looks to be something far too good to miss;. They have previously brought audiences such classics as Hansel and Gretel and Alice in Wonderland at the Grand, as well as the Wizard of Oz and Oliver at Morecambe Winter Gardens, among others, over the years. We have a very wide range of abilities and ages. The only thing we ask from the children is their commitment.

Very satisfying.
Ian is such a talented accompanist and Duncan has some brilliant ideas that are constantly challenging us. But it was a very different kind of performance and venue for us to perform in and the atmosphere was great. There are so many people that we need to make the performances a success so we have to get in there first, booking them up well in advance, just so we know they can participate. Naturally, the festive season is a busy time for any choir, and for the Lancaster Singers this year is no exception.

Trends are changing — we see less chip pan fires due to oven chips and thermostatically controlled friers but we need to make people aware that even the simple act of cleaning your toaster, tipping the crumbs on to the garden for the birds, can make a massive difference to fire prevention.

In England on average, 7, chimney fires occur every year.
Open fires Be careful when using open fires to keep warm. Make sure you always use a fire guard to protect against flying sparks from hot embers. Make sure embers are under control and properly put out before you go to bed. Keep chimneys and flues clean and well maintained. Using portable heaters Keep heaters away from curtains and furniture.
Never use them for drying clothes. Always unplug electric heaters when you go out or go to bed. Try to secure heaters against a wall to stop them falling over. Only use gas or paraffin heaters in wellventilated areas. Heaters consume oxygen so you could suffocate if a room is not properly aired. Using electric blankets Never use hot water bottles in the same bed as an electric blanket, even if the blanket is switched off.
Unplug blankets before you get into bed, unless they have a thermostat control for safe all-night use. Store electric blankets flat, rolled up or loosely folded to prevent damaging the internal wiring.

When Manual drive mode is selected, the vehicle returns the steering wheel and seats to their original position, seamlessly transferring control back to the driver. It allows the floor to be completely flat, resulting in a cavernous cabin and enhanced driving dynamics.
With a low center of gravity, the chassis delivers sharp handling that promises to redefine the crossover segment. The powerful yet quiet powertrain delivers enhanced excitement. The IMx is propelled by a pair of high-output electric motors at the front and rear, giving it all-wheeldrive capability. They combine to produce kW of power and an astounding Nm of torque, sourced from a high-capacity battery which has been redesigned and reengineered for increased energy density. This new battery supports a driving range of more than kilometres on a single charge, so occupants can enjoy an extended adventure without worrying about recharging.
Becoming part of the social infrastructure: Nissan Intelligent Integration The Nissan IMx can also contribute to the social infrastructure like no other vehicle before it. Once the owner returns, the IMx can pick them up at the terminal and drive home. The whole process is carried out efficiently, thanks in part to the increased battery capacity and connected-car.
Until now, vehicles have been designed with a clear differentiation between exterior and interior. Exterior design provides a sense of security from the outside, while the interior design gives drivers an appropriate environment for concentrating on driving. This purpose-based differentiation is likely to change with the arrival of fully autonomous vehicles. To achieve this, they endeavored to design a space that links up the inside and outside of the vehicle.
They also wanted to convey the key characteristics of electric vehicles — quiet and smooth with a sense of light, yet powerful and dynamic. A separate, wood grain-patterned display, positioned below the instrument panel and wrapping around the interior door trims, gives occupants a subtle sense of the outside, similar to a shoji, a traditional Japanese paper screen. The katanagare diagonal pattern on the seats has been delicately etched with a laser cutter. The head rest — patterned like kumiki, a Japanese interlocking wood puzzle — is made from silicon-material cushioning and a frame produced by a 3D printer.
Artificial intelligence enables the driver to control the instrument panel with eye movements and hand gestures. This intuitive interface results in fewer physical controls and switches, making the cabin of the IMx simple yet highly efficient and adding to its supreme comfort. From the familiar V-motion grille, the supple character line rises and flows to the hood and rear end. The broad surfaces of the distinctively shaped front fenders start from the grille and expand seamlessly onto the body sides, creating a sense of layers.
The vermillion accent color, contrasting vividly with the pearl white-colored body, is inspired by uramasari, which describes the beauty and extravagance found on the inside of traditional Japanese kimonos.

A round up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Tues 6th Nov I certainly experienced something different this morning, which I have never seen before!
About 2, Starling came through in one wave after leaving their roost which is about 5 miles to my West and normally would continue East to their feeding grounds around Kirkby Lonsdale etc. There they all started chattering with a enormous collective sound just like you would normally hear if you went along to their evening roost site. After the red skies on their horizon had almost subsided perhaps 20 minutes later the birds started to leave the temporary holding area in small parties of 50 or more at a time, the evacuation lasted for some 20 minutes.
I can only think that perhaps the sight of that red sky had "spooked" them! Just one of the many waves of Starling on their way out East this morning. Mass departure on our bird radar from the north of the Netherlands to UK. Will the vireo also leave Texel and A small part of the thousands of Starlings on their way through to East x roost this morning.

It was a struggle today for the small birds especially the chaffinch with the majority 55 choosing to fly into the wind on the westward route and only a few 18 taking the wind behind them which the ones that did rushed past you like a car doing 30 mph and side on! It always makes you wonder why on earth did they not chose yesterday to come through when the weather was far kinder!!
Starling: approx party over Farleton at whilst over Dalton Hall all E ex roost. A round up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Tues 23rd Oct Nothing of any special interest to report both in the UK and also in the Netherlands. Spectacular opener with no less than 20, Starling heading East from roost could well have been 50, in one column which was total from your left and right and very deep which went on for a couple of minutes.

A round up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Tues 16th Oct Look up into the sky, high and sometimes higher binoculars. To see the black dots, then look further to see the smaller dots. In stream after stream and all on one line, and too high to count,. How many hundreds or maybe thousands there could have been. SO FAR Some lovely skyscapes today. Another day with Skylarks coming through and a few Geese on the move. A Few Redwings which seemed to be hanging about Hutton Roof. Chaffinch: SE and 60W Best parties: 1x15, 2x Redwing: NW lots of messing about with them over and in Hutton Roof canopies.
Blackbird : 1 SE very long tailed. A round up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Mon 15th Oct Just to try and give you some idea I have made up this document showing numbers for comparisons. Chaffinch counts are made over a approx 3 hour period, although extended to 6 hours or more on the large count days so treat as approx. So obviously was a exceptional year which I put down to having a good build of Easterlies and Southerlies winds. And I guess if you have a prolonged period of good winds eg E and S then it does not matter at the end you can take on a few Westerlies as above and it will still be OK because of the prior build, but it would not have been OK if you had not had the good run of E and S winds leading up to it.
Today 15th October The winds have changed over to the South at long last and I thought it would have been good, but no it turned out to be awful yet again, and thinking about it, it is probably down to two things 1 you have not had the build of prolonged Easterlies prior, and secondly I also think that perhaps the exceptional mild warm weather this year has not created the same inception interest to the migrants as you would get with the frost you associate with at this time of year.
Chaffinch — Autumn Also I am sure that the constant mild wet spells have not helped in the matter. It will be especially interesting to see what this next 7days produce. Visibility excellent throughout. Still so quiet especially with the Chaffinch although a little better than the last few days. Chaffinch: SE and 69 W Best parties: 1x25, 1x14, 2x11, 2x7, 4x6.

A round-up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Sat 6th Oct A round-up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Fri 5th Oct A round-up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Thr 4th Oct Uist, Outer Hebs, Scotland. On arrival just the slightest of mist drizzle together with mist on all perimeters which closed down visability to about yards, but within 10 mins it was continuous light rain up until around hrs when the mist started clearing from the South West and the light rain stopped. Little trickles came through at that point and continued up to me leaving.
But of interest was that some the Chaffinch parties were numbering 4s,6s,7s. Interestingly Mr. Jay was had it again passing by at regular intervals collecting his "whopper sized this year Acorns" then flying back over yards and repeating this collection process. In fact to be honest he has been going had it now for about ten days to the same productive Oak.
I am sure he must be burying these and before long we will have a increased Oak tree yield! Starling: E 30,30,70,8 presumed to have left roost maybe Leighton Moss and swelling by the day. A round-up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Wed 3rd Oct Catherines Point, Isle of Wight. Corridors to the SE of Hutton Roof this morning, but created by a different sort of bird. Skyscape this morning - looking from Burton over Hutton Roof to the East.
Not many birds about this morning but a nice "Hot Air Balloon" straight above. Since the first arrival on 15th, most of the counts have been of birds moving down the east coast, although good numbers also went south over Heysham. Martin Mere from the east side. Two sat tagged birds did this in — direct 12 hour flight from Iceland to Lindisfarne almost passing over my old patch at Lintrathen! It seems that the first ports of call for the Pinks on arrival are major roost sites — with Lindisfarne being an important one. From there they re-orientate to where ever they will spend the autumn — sometimes going back the way they came.
This seems odd to us but is probably neither here nor there to a Pink-foot. I imagine the birds are fairly flexible about what they do in each autumn depending on the weather that they encounter. Again never got going really if anything perhaps a slight gathering of pace from hrs into a trickle of movement. Overcast with light on the horizon west coast , midges everywhere! All SE unless stated otherwise. Whooper Swan: 10 one party came in overhead from the SE and carried on NW to approx Ulverston, then turned left and continued South which should have eventually taken them over the Bay.
A round-up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Thr 27th Sept Very dark morning with first bird recorded at hrs. Never got going again this morning with just the occasional trickle. A round-up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Wed 26th Sept Now seriously things are only going worse with this high pressure and I think we need something to clear this dire stuff, like some nice Easterlies!!.
Did have some Geese this morning which were seen head to the NW which I guess my be approriate with the winds being in the South. The Goldfinch started off well. A round-up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Tuesday 25th Sept First proper frost and having to take ice of windscreen. Cold first thing but pleasant and it was not long before the sun starting shining making it a very nice morning to be out and about.
Again the movement never got going probably because for one NNW is not the best wind together with very high pressure tends to block, well that has always been my experience. I think we will need to get some Easterlies to get things moving here! Skeins of Pink Feet were again showing. All movement SE unless stated otherwise. A round-up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Monday 24th Sept Movement just never got going yet again, in fact it was far worse than yesterday with just the occasional single or pair Chaffinch going through.
Nice party of 9 Raven. All Swallows out to the NW. Yet another Cormorant SE, exactly the same flightline as the last two morning birds. Pink Footed Goose: S 52 at , 40 at , 80 at A round-up of interesting vismig reports from near and far - Sunday 23rd Sept Another round-up of interesting vismig reports for Saturday 22nd September Really strange sort of sky, very milky appearance. Just the slightest of trickles up to about hrs then things got going to a point but nothing going mad, then just steady through to about hrs.
Chaffinch: SE 49W best parties: 1x11, 1x8, 2x7, 3x6, 7x5, 8x4. Another round-up of interesting vismig reports for Friday 21st September Gone very cold. Squally on and off showers throughout watch. I have seen more rainbows or part rainbows this morning than I have ever seen in the last 20 years put together! The wind was pretty strong and all the finches were coming through side on whilst they tried to compensate.
All birds had no problem getting through but travelling at such a pace with having wind almost behind them!
