A busy day editing well actually downloading the material for Bus Spot Ultra Derby, it is also necessary to make decisions about what to include, I think that the Midland General Group can go on a future Mansfields Bus Spot and then the likes of Stevensons on with Burton and the remainder such as Hulleys on with Chesterfield. We has a surfeit of material for this area and it would work well evening it out like this. So all the film to edit is now on the computer, I'll start stitching it all together later this evening. It is a shame we don't really have much on the NBC era although with scenes on video from 1989 there wasn't much difference only the livery which again wasn't that changed on Trent. The Trent scenes are nearly all by Robin Hannay pre video era, he did so much brilliant work which was by then near home. His knowledge of the bus industry and Guy in particular knows no match. Sometimes I really struggle with some locations and have to do a lot of research, I think the Midland General group had a particularly interesting history which well rewards looking it up on the net or buying a book!
On Wednesday this week we have the post operation check up on Mandy's tear duct intervention, it seems to have come out quite well although one eye is better than the other. Most of our Christmas cards have now been sent out and we are pretty well on the count down to Christmas although it is very low key here as we are going down to Hampshire on the Saturday prior, there seems little sense in getting too festive as we'll only be getting back felling it needs to be tided away, stuff the 12th night racket! All the DVD orders continue to be sent out by return. I got a few earlier DVDs on digital download while I was uploading material for the Derby volume. So plenty of work going into things at our end. The net is bubbling away nicely but breaking no records.
Numbers of views per day seem more or less set at 49-51k views, the areas producing most Youtube views continue as the last year with the UK at the top and places like Indonesia and Vietnam for second and third. No sign of anything European or American budging the Asia countries, what is up you people come on now there must be transport fans in the Americas and Europe. Remember though it is an English language site, do your best it isn't a test - anything prejudice , racial hatred, violent etc will see the poster banned from commenting on our site, family friendly it is and will stay. Tonight we go to Tyneside is hoped we'll be there Tuesday
