The Christmassy Mood - a Yule Tide story for the kids.
This is very much aimed at children aged 8 or less - or more if you like that sort of thing. It's in five chapters linked by music.  I hope yo like it ! It tells the story oh the feelings people get around the turn of the year and what happened when the feelings felt things themselves !

Computer and acting problems - Siwriting and windoze !
Thinking my way though an irritating day - yes, I do get irritated a lot, but I make the most of it. I also make siwriter.co.uk - an app of beauty and utility for anyone who wants to write something without getting out of bed. #TortyTalks #SimonAnthony #TortoisesoftEnterprises #acting@torty.org.uk #Comedy #ComedyPodcast #Over60AndStillGoingStrong #Monologue

Concerning facts - thoughts on the importance of News.
What is a fact ? Who says so ? Why do they say so and who can you believe anyway ? Well, I have concerned myself with these problematic thoughts in this podcast.  #TortyTalks #SimonAnthony #TortoisesoftEnterprises #acting@torty.org.uk #Comedy #ComedyPodcast #Over60AndStillGoingStrong #Monologue #Politics

Kids, apps, cars and teaching...
... what I tend to find I am doing when not either making a podcast or now - lecturing.  This is a stream of irritation rant with an  occasional positive sort of solution thrown in to stave off depression and dull the angst. #TortyTalks #SimonAnthony #TortoisesoftEnterprises #acting@torty.org.uk #Comedy #ComedyPodcast #Over60AndStillGoingStrong #Monologue #Autobiography

Computers - why bother - remounted.
This is a re-recording of a story I wrote decades ago and updated a few decades later and recorded one decade ago - so the original sounds a bit ropey. What does rope sound like I wonder... Anyway, I shall recreate all my old recordings I think. If I do, this shall be the first one ! It tells the tale of the dawn of personal computing and its impact on my life - note - forty years ago. I must ell a new tale starting from where this one ends, don't hold your breath though. #TortyTalks #SimonAnthony #TortoisesoftEnterprises #acting@torty.org.uk #Comedy #ComedyPodcast #Over60AndStillGoingStrong #Environment #Greens #Monologue #Politics #History #Autobiography

This is an explanation of why I use the word Torty in all the stuff I do, my podcasts, my websites and my computer programs - yes, I write them too.  It's another partial family history pet story. #TortyTalks #SimonAnthony #TortoisesoftEnterprises #acting@torty.org.uk #Comedy #ComedyPodcast #Over60AndStillGoingStrong #Environment #Greens #Monologue #Autobiography

Thoughts before going LIVE on air
As I write and as I create this podcast, I am getting ready for a live TV debate. I have been on live TV many times before, but somehow this feels more real. It's a Politics Special and I am expected to say something, directly to politicians - sadly, about whom I know nothing, but I know a lot about trying to be one. This is what this podcast is about - in part. #TortyTalks #SimonAnthony #TortoisesoftEnterprises #acting@torty.org.uk #Comedy #ComedyPodcast #Over60AndStillGoingStrong #Environment #Greens #Monologue #Politics #History #Autobiography

An advert for my app Siwriter - not totally professional
#Siwriter.co.uk is the website I have created for this wonder - text entry typing app.  What is #SiWriter ? SiWriter  lets you take notes by typing with just one hand, the other can hold  the iPad. This is not 'hunt and peck' one finger poking, SiWriter  provides finger-tip positioned active key areas on an iPad screen which  you tap in easily remembered combinations. This will produces all the  letters, numbers, punctuation marks and other symbols of the standard  (Latin 2) character set - that is, everything an English reader would  expect to have available.   The SiWriter is not a new idea, cool  it certainly is, but it is not new. In use it looks like the '#Padds' in  Sci Fi, people tend to notice as you rattle away SiWriting notes on an  iPad, they won't hear you though, it is as silent as your fingertips.   The SiWriter app is a software implementation of the CyKey from Bellaire Electronics http://www.cykey.co.uk/  . The Cykey has the advantage of being a real, solid object, but the  app is less expensive if you already have an iPad. The physical aspects  of the Cykey make for a very pleasing tactile feedback for a note taker  which SiWriter Pro intends to match by giving you absolute control over  the pad positions. The History Many years ago, #DougEngelbart  invented the mouse - you may have heard of that. He also invented a  five switch text entry system which you probably have not come across.  He introduced both ideas in what became known as the mother of all  demos, but the chording system never took off. The plan was that each  finger pressed keys in groups - or chords- following a code that  resulted in text output, but people found, or thought they would find,  the learning curve too steep. That was probably the reason too few even  attempted to climb it. Even when microwriting was implemented by #CyEnfield and used in the Microwriter - it never really took off. The  code chording system was used in an award winning PDA called the AgendA  and I used one of them until it wore out - then I wore out another. The  AgendA hit manufacturing problems, but it was the 1980s and so you'd  expect that, but it was not until 2000 or so that the #CyKey replaced it.  It uses the same codes #CyEnderby refined for the #Microwriter and many  people use it to this day, but, it has to be wedded to a large base  station or a laptop to be of any use. I wanted the speed and ease of  '#Qunikey' text entry but with the power of an iPad - and so I wrote  SiWriter. The difference. SiWriter uses the touch  screen as the five, now eight, keys. Sadly there is no simple way to  check that your fingers are in the right place to press the pads  correctly and there is no tactile feedback to say what is going on, and  so you do have to use your eye to keep the fingers in the right place.  This was not the advertised plan. It is possible to anchor down the iPad  and your wrist and type without looking where your fingers are going -  in just the same way as a QWERTY touch typist can, but that takes more  effort than I wanted anyone to use, so I have abandoned the 'type while  not looking' concept for now - you do have to look. So, what is the  point ? It is faster to type, faster to learn and it's possible  to type on a bus or the tube, or standing - and - an iPad is much  smaller than any laptop. There is the advantage - typing whenever and  wherever you want. #TortyTalks  #SimonAnthony  #TortoisesoftEnterprises

1978 Prom Groperetta rehearsal
This is part of the rehearsals for 'Die Meister Prommer Von Kensington' - a silly thing we Prommers put on for the day of the Last Night. The people in it shall remain un-named here - but, they know who they are. I doubt anyone other than people in the performance would find this even faintly interesting, but I love it !

Mental Illness, what it feels like, what it does, the reality of it - NOT a pleasant listen, but an important one.
I had a phone call today from our son, he is very depressed, almost too deeply... He wants the world to hear his plight and share his pain and that of other folk who have also become addicted to prescribed drugs - intended to help them - but which made them all far far worse. This is just part of his story and it is in no way a happy one. My comedy is in other podcasts. This podcast is supposed to make, or help you think. It is painfully real. #TortyTalks  #SimonAnthony  #TortoisesoftEnterprises  #acting@torty.org.uk  #Politics #MentalHealth #depression #addiction

We have the technology - to fix mental disabilities - I think
My personal view and experience of teaching mentally and physically disabled people and my thoughts on how we could possibly fix their problems using computing analogies and software and hardware debugging concepts.  Note, we are all advanced chimp like creatures. If disability removes that advancement the ancestral systems take over - but these also may need fixing. #TortyTalks  #SimonAnthony  #TortoisesoftEnterprises  #acting@torty.org.uk  #Over60AndStillGoingStrong  #Environment #Greens #Monologue #medical #Politics #Autobiography

A Green view of Brexit
This is NOT endorsed by the Green Party - in any country - but only because I haven't asked for it to be. I think you will find my remarks, made as a Green Party member are really rather nice.

Greg up a ladder - a 492 Korna Klub drama excerpt
I perform regularly on https://www.492kornaklub.com/ as a character called Greg - sometimes Jeff, therein lies a long story. Anyway, I have nicked /edited out the bits from one hour long improvised drama transmitted in May 2019. The show in full is broadcast on http://galaxyafiwe.com/ at 5pm every Friday. The second half is audience participation - call the characters and ask/tell them what's going on - and we reply in character. The actor playing Desmond is Jerome Wise Millington. #TortyTalks  #SimonAnthony  #TortoisesoftEnterprises  #acting@torty.org.uk  #Comedy #Over60AndStillGoingStrong  #492KornaKlub #improvisedDrama #improv #drama #ImprovDrama

An Actor's life - me getting lost again
This is the word of pocket microphone story as it happened of how I actually eventually made it to where I had to be and did what I had to do. I don't yet know if it was good enough, but, who am I to judge ? Odd stuff - but real. This is another outside travel story recorded as t happened and annotated after the event. I think this sort of thing will be of historical interest eventually - because no one pays any attention to it at the moment - it shall soon change and be lost - unless I record it. You can too by the way.

An Introduction, a brief description of something that could be very long indeed.
As I say in this introduction ... Well, I won't repeat it here, you can hear it. Basically, this is my life history in recorded sound, readings from writing made at the time and portions of life itself. I've been around a long time, the span I cover is over 62 years so far, and I'm only 61. Listening to this string of - currently disordered diary entries - shows some of the extra-ordinary - and yet utterly missed changes in normal life that have flowed past us all without us really spotting them. Here, they stand out like, well, you tell me.
