2 minutes and 18 seconds altogether, or 23 rounds. The first fight lasted a minute and the second a minute and eighteen seconds.
In real time, it was more like an hour and fifteen minutes; 28:56 for the first fight and 46:03 for the second, but Vox Machnica was attempting to help more from the sidelines during the second fight, lengthening the time it took to describe the encounter.
Sunset over The Wall, Kurn-Stor, The last western border of Koreno before forbidden lands. Kingdom of Koreno.
“West from Robetsberg are healthy plains and hill-land, eventually giving way to the mighty jungles that grow out of Mannstern’s Sea at the western coasts. Here one encounters the only absolute border that Koreno can be said to have- a structure remarkable in its existence and its effect upon our land. The Endless Wall, Kurn-Stor in Old Dwarvish, has set a grim boundary to the west which stands even now.” –Excerpt from The Geography of Koreno, Al-Canqard library
Chertsey Artists are a very talented bunch of artists who run a variety of workshops and art sessions from their studios in Chertsey. However their premises are under threat of redevelopment and they contacted me to help underline what they do for the community and the arts, to see if the development could be avoided or a new home could be found. As well as creating portraits of some of the…
I’m currently reading a book. I don’t have any specific reason why I bought this book, though. It is just purely the title: Nice Is Just A Place In France – How To Win at Basically Anything. It captivates me.
The book tells you how to be a confident and strong woman, how to talk shit properly, how to stop being boring like a girl who spent her twenties waiting for a perfect guy to kneel down and propose to her. I don’t have to be on the last page to know that this book is basically tells me about someone. She’s all over the page.

[ Abstract ]
A continuous quantum field, such as a propagating beam of light, may be characterized by a squeezing spectrum that is inhomogeneous in frequency. We point out that homodyne detectors, which are commonly employed to detect quantum squeezing, are blind to squeezing spectra in which the correlation between amplitude and phase fluctuations is complex. We find theoretically that such complex squeezing is a component of ponderomotive squeezing of light through cavity optomechanics. We propose a detection scheme, called synodyne detection, which reveals complex squeezing and allows its use to improve force detection beyond the standard quantum limit.
Alan and Jeanette have owned Carpetrama in Chertsey since 1991. Being in a shop in Windsor Street with large windows they have had a big screen viewing of some of the filming activities that have taken place in Chertsey over the years.
I have started a new project in collaboration with Chertsey museum to photograph many different people in Runnymede for an exhibition being held in the museum from October 2016. The idea is just to create some great images whilst capturing the people in Runnymede. Everybody who gets photographed will be included in the exhibition. I have set up a separate blog where a lot of the images will be…
Continuing with my local shopkeepers theme, the No Naked Walls art gallery in Windsor Street, Chertsey was taken over by Sharon four years ago and has a loyal following. Sharon herself is a painter and has been a member of Chertsey Artists since 2003.
The shop that is now D’eyncourt Antiques in Chertsey has a long and varied history having previously been a photographers premises, and 49 years ago it became a drawing office where Maureen and her partner worked, before changing it into an antique shop.
