The site is at www.southlakes-uk.co.uk and whilst you're at it have a look at www.barrowpubs.co.uk which is a history of every pub and hotyel that has ever stood in Barrow In Furness
And why am I giving you these two sites to look at..... Two reasons....
They're local to the Furness Area
They are both my own work.
You guessed it. I am the author, creator and webmaster of them both.

www.tchartdev.com is the site you need if you dont want to get caught by a speed camera again. Not only that but the software will give you all sorts of other information such as your height above sea level as well as calcualte your milage, average speed top speed etc etc and dislay it all on the screen of your GPS unit.
been caught speeding lately? sick of getting points deducted? tired of donating your money to the government money making scams that are termed "safety cameras"?
tchart development does not endorse driving at excessive speed but like many we have been nabbed going slightly over the speed limit. gps speed sentry was developed to provide a subtle warning mechanism that you are exceeding the speed limit. this is particularly helpful on those long road trips when you should be watching the road and not your speedometer.
gps speed sentry is more than just a gps enabled speed monitor/car computer. it monitors your current speed and warns you when you are near or go over one of 6 user defined speed limits, the latest version of the software can also provide warnings about approaching speed cameras.
it also allows you to view other gps derived information on a series of displays. other information includes current/top/average speed, a trip meter, an odometer, elevation, position, bearing and much more.
The information displayed by gps speed sentry includes;
- current speed (in knots, mph or km/hr)
- average speed
- top speed
- trip meter
- 3d compass view also shows bearing and direction
- speed graph also shows current speed limit
- elevation graph
- current latitude and longitude coordinates (in various formats)
- number of satellites locked & in view
- satellite sky plot
- satellite reception bars
- gps fix type (fix/no fix/2d/3d)
- data validity
- coordinated universal time (utc) date/time & local date/time
- ordnance survey great britain grid reference
- maidenhead grid locator
Go check it out and try the software and if you like it then you can register it

You know what’s like, a friend points their camera in your direction and asks you to say “cheese”. So you fix a grin on your face and wait for them to press the button, hoping that they’ll make it snappy so your face doesn’t go stiff. www.longawkwardpose.com reveals what happens when that friend doesn’t take the picture and just leaves your sitting there gurning. It’s cruel but funny!

That is why www.reqall.com is a big hit with me. ReQall is the site that offers to be your constant companion and memory jogger, so you need never forget anything ever again.
Once you have registered, click the link to settings at the top to set up the various sections, including your notification preferences about how and when you want to receive reminders.
The idea is you input anything you want to be reminded about like birthdays, shopping lists, deadlines for work etc. The website's clever software recognises certain keywords, such as "buy" and automatically adds the reminder to the right section, like the shopping list.
You can share your ReQall database with other users, giving you the chance to gently remind your other half to pick up milk on the way home from work without seeming like you are nagging.
But it is for users in the UK, US and Canada that the site really comes into its own. Here you are offered toll free numbers to call so you can add notes while you are out and about, and they are converted to text and stored in your database as well as sent back to you by text.
You can add up to five telephone numbers linked to your account and there is even the option to put in a pin number if you need to use another number like a telephone box.

Take a look at www.planet-scicast.com as here you will find films and experiments on all things scientific.
The interesting thing about the content here is it has been submitted by users of the site, so it is really varied and often very entertaining, such as the young lad making a turboturd out of sulphuric acid and sugar.
To navigate, use the panel on the left. If you think you have the talent to contribute to the site take a look at About SciCast. There is even a competition running at the moment which you can find more about on Submit Film.
As well as the videos, there are some great experiments you can try yourself. All experiments come with an illustrated step-by-step guide, so give in to your curiosity and expand your mind. And obviously make sure youngsters are properly supervised.

Take a look at it at www.compulsivetraveler.tv
As well as being well filmed and edited they feature some really interesting content that sits somewhere between travelogue and historical or natural world documentary.
A featured country is displayed on the opening page, just click the arrow to play the top film and there are links to further films from that country laid out below.
Click People, Places or Categories to link to the various ways you can browse the site's content. Clicking All Videos at the top will bring up a huge page of thumbnails linking to every film in the archive.
Now all you have to do is make a cup of tea and sit back and enjoy.
Travel without the jabs, long flights or airport delays. It is enough to make you compulsive about it.
