My church is the Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle in Belfast. I am part of the technical crew responsible for sound/video/lighting, and aside from the regular meetings, concerts etc, this takes us to events throughout Northern Ireland and beyond. In addition to this, the church also has a 5-camera video set-up which is used for our TV broadcasts. To find out more, click on the link above.
Yes, like so many others I had Sky TV (well up until 2017 when I sensibly ditched them!). But satellite TV is about much more than that. In fact Sky, despite what I'm sure they would like us to believe, is only a very small part of what's available on more than 30 satellites broadcasting into Europe. Sky offer 150+ channels on their digital transmissions, but there are 10 (ten) times as many channels, feeds etc up there which can be accessed with a motorised dish set-up or a number of fixed dishes, and around half of these are totally free!
Here are links to my other satellite pages:
Non-satellite related TV and radio stations available in my area. BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, RTE, local radio, unlicensed (pirate) stations, everything I can think of!

Fiona's the gardener, not me! In fact, I dislike gardening - at least most gardening. When I moved into my new house in 1993, the garden was a complete mess. As far as I was concerned, I would level the garden and sow a lawn and thereafter I would just mow it when required (and Fiona was happy to do the other jobs!). It wasn't until later, in fact not until I began browsing the web at first, that I found something altogether different (and more interesting) to do with my garden. I would never have believed that exotic plants such as palms, bananas, yuccas and tree ferns would survive as garden plants in Northern Ireland, but many of them not only survive but also thrive, and the list of such plants which can be grown in gardens here is quite impressive. I have also included some information about the climate here as this is the most important factor in determining what will grow (and what will not).
