I wasn’t going to do any work today. But I did update my Eventbrite pages.
I’ve tried different types of ticketing services. So far I like Eventbrite and Brownpaper Tickets the best.
I really like that you can set up a mixture of free, pay what you can, and regular paid ticketed events with Eventbrite and Brownpaper Tickets.
Here’s the link to all of Griots Arts upcoming Black History Month Wales events on Eventbrite, http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/org/4369573393
Below is a picture of sloe berries from the garden. A friend has told me that there’s a sloe gin contest being run in a local pub. I’ve never made sloe gin. But I think I’ll try (although I won’t be drinking any). I’m also going to make some sloe-apple jam, very nice with savoury dishes.

It contains short clips of various films which feature Carl Bradshaw (all included clips are available on Youtube), and excerpts from an extensive interview with the celebrated film icon conducted by Neil Sinclair during the International Black Film Festival in 2005. The end of the video includes a promo clip of HAMA Films acclaimed Caribbean thriller The Skin in which Carl Bradshaw plays a key role as part of an excellent cast. Thank you to Michael Garrison for the many hours editing the original footage so that we can share this rare archival footage.
