Fixing my feeds

I've changed my feeds from del.icio.us and last.fm to use their utilities rather than RSSDigest. That has served me well for a while, but I'd prefer to get the feeds directly from the sources. The last.fm one is in the form of an image, but I can live with that. The del.icio.us one was doing the same as my category list and was shifted too far to the right in Firefox. I've fixed that for now by making the whole sidebar left justified. It's not as aesthetically pleasing, but at least everything fits on the screen now.

I got Rhythms

Had a great time at Rhythms of the World in Hitchin at the weekend. I've not had a proper look before. The problem was that there was too much choice. The main acts we saw were acoustic singer Beck Goldsmith, funky Horace X and cello singer Laura Hewison as well as bits of various others. The opera singers in the church were very moving. I hope to be back next year.

We also attended the Great Offley Bike Show. I've not been involved in the biking scene for a while, but it was nice to have a look. I'm always amazed at the work people put into their bike, both old and new. Everything there from a 1920's Levis to a nitrous Fireblade and some big trikes.

Wildlife highlight of the weekend was seeing our first frog in our new pond. I knew there were frogs in the garden before, despite the lack of open water, so it was just a matter of time. I'm hoping it will eat some of the mosquito larvae before they take flight.
