... so if you type in http://www.sixtamesides.co.uk ... you get re-directed to the new site !! Such are the perils of going for the "cheap" options (one company owning the domain name - and another company hosting it) !! So now IT REALLY IS "Farewell" ... .
As from tonight the "Six Tame Sides" blog will cease to be ... regular viewers will no doubt have noticed that I'm finding it harder and harder to do both pictures - and words. OK the pictures are always there, up and running - but trying to put 500/1000 words with them has been proving a touch too much - especially when I know there are others out there in blog/website world who are doing much the same (albeit without the pictures !!!) So - for 2014 - it's going to be "concentrate more on the pictures" - so a new blog has been set up - viz. http://stsphotographic.blogspot.co.uk/ That's where the football stuff will be going - together with a more photographic-based blurb (or in most cases- not too much blurb) - and for those who play catch-up, there's a link on the side of this 'ere blog (plus anyone who uses the sixtamesides.co.uk link will be re-directed to the new blog. I've been playing around on the new'un for a week or so - so there's already a "bit of a start" ... Happy New Year to you all ... .
... taking a new "walking lens" out for a walk - now in a position to just take one lens (18-200mm) out for walks rather than two (28-105mm and 70-300mm) - and pleased with performance of it as well ... pics at Greenfield/Uppermill Wander 29Dec13 Nice day for it as well - back in work tomorrow ... just in time for the return of the wind and rain - aargh .. .
The other chance of the season to see the old "home-town team" - but oh dear oh dear - saw them scrape past Droylsden a month or so ago - but today ... absolutely no chance - in the end a 4-0 defeat could have been a lot worse had it not been for some heroics from Stafford 'keeper Jon Brain.

Relegation looms for the Boro - reading between the lines (as I've only seen them twice) and looking at the league table - they're now 16 points from safety ... a miracle is required in 2014. As for Ashton - now up to 7th with games in hand - play-offs maybe ?? .
