2017-135-Adaptor

Hello friend, What a struggle this has been (see blog 114). I’ve, finally, been given permission to buy a replacement power adaptor direct from the manufacturer’s website. Strange, as they had previously told the PPO that there was no adaptor I could buy; the PPO, of course, bought into this without any further investigation. That’s

2017-132-Arts Project

Arts Project Hello friend, This is the last Arts Project before the show days. This covers the 5 days prior to the first show. Choir rehearsal: went okay, despite the unwanted interjections from the same guy from the other day. It’s a shame; I had such big plans for the choir’s involvement which I had

2017-131-Arts Project

Arts Project Hello friend, Our first rehearsal this week went really well. It was another acoustic run through; we nearly made it to the end, bar 1 number.

2017-128-Cell Search

Cell Search Hello friend, As a Category A prisoner, I get a cell search every month; including the extra searches they do throughout prisons, that’s over 180, and not once has there ever been anything found to be illicit – yet they still persist in this futile exercise. This month’s search: I came back to

2017-126-Arts Project

Arts Project Hello friend, Harmony rehearsals went really well this week; everyone confident. Choir rehearsal, also, went well. Finally, finished programming the guitar effects pedal patches; I now know why I’m a ‘plug in and play’ guitarist. Had 2 rehearsals this week. The first one was acoustic based to work through the set changes with
