Saturday Morning Thrills

It’s been a seriously exciting Saturday so far. I walked down to the High Street to get my haircut. Picked up some fruit and veg on the way. Mowed the lawn when I got back. Luckily, I took my handycam with me down to the High Street - and captured some of the exciting things going on in the negbourhood on this gloriously hot and sunny Saturday morning.

I’ve edited the video down to 1 minute 55 seconds - and kept the file size down to around 4.8 Megabytes by encoding it at 320 x 240 pixels and around 300kbps data rate . It should only take a few mins to download if you are on broadband cable or ADSL. It’s a Windows Media Video (WMV) file which should work fine in versions of Windows Media Player greater than version 7.

to download the video file - save to a folder of your choice.
And then double-click on it to play when downloaded.

(The musical dub is opening extract from a catchy dance number called “At Night” by Shakedown.)

Nice High Street vignette. I’ll keep a lookout for that lost cockatiel.
