On December the 1st, a new Pizza place came into town with both a pickup and delivery option. (delivery only available for orders over £15 which I didn’t notice but to be fair is stated at the bottom of the menu on the website)
Only a year ago, they were all the rage, everyone had one, your Mum, your sister, Gran and Grandad all taking photos of themselves doing it.
What am I talking about? Yes, you guessed it, a selfie stick.
Let me set this for the record first off, technically, it’s a monopod, technically. I know, selfie stick is what everyone calls them, but personally I think that just makes them sound cheap (sadly, a lot appear to be).
Why am I talking to you about Selfie sticks? It just so happens, I recently added one to my gear. I know, I shock myself sometimes, I was one of those people who scoffed at the time. My wife even got annoyed because she wanted one at the time.
It’s been an eventful year. Since I started This is Rammy it’s grown from a website geared around promoting Ramsbottom where I just wanted to publish everything I learnt about our town, to an award winning podcast.
When it was first started, I had no idea that in less than six months I would be launching a podcast. Firstly, aside from consuming lots of podcasts as a listener, I didn’t have the first clue as to where to start to create one, other then I’d need a Mic.
It’s here again, the Ramsbottom Pie Festival. One of my favourite of all Ramsbottom Festivals, mainly because I’m a pie lover.
Now in it’s third year the pie festival promises pies, pies, pies and cakes, and other things, but mostly pies.
Whilst you’re there, if your event is not listed, or if you know of any events that are not listed, let me know and I’ll add them to the events page.
Here’s a couple of photos from last years festival:
Currently all costs come out of my own pocket, however if you ever wanted to donate to the podcast, maybe with audio production credits, then who am I to stop you?
