Merry Christmas from Andysworld! and York iconic St Nicholas Fair?

Sunday, November 25th, 2018

We don’t venture out to York very much, but Lindsey took me to Ippuku Tea House yesterday for my Birthday meal, which is a Japanese Tea room in York. If you like Japanese food, the food is excellent!


The Christmas Shoppers in York, were terrible, drawn by the iconic St Nicholas Fair?

Stan Lee – 1922 – 2018 – Excelsior!!!

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

Today, sees the right day to publish this blog….

I’ve dipped in and out of the X-Men, Fantastic Four, SpiderMan, Iron Man, Deadpool – but did not have any appreciation (then), of the Marvel Universe!

I never collected the comics as a “child”, although I’m aware of there existence from The Big Bang Theory and Stan Lee!

So about a month ago, I finished watching the Marvel Cinematic Universe in chronological order!



I created a playlist on PLEX, and watched all  Marvel Cinematic Universe films, 1 day and 18 hours worth, back to back. I didn’t watch Agents of Shield… Captain Marvel is released next year (2019).

if you didn’t know Stan Lee had a cameo in the movies.

Monday, November 12th, 2018

It’s been about 15 years since we visited China, and as it’s one of my favourite countries, I’ve visited so far, so it was about time we returned to see how China has changed in 15 years!

So in early spring this year (2018), we returned to China.


We visited












It’s taken Lindsey a while to sort through all the thousands of pictures which were taken on a digital SLR and my mobile phone, so please enjoy:- these are the best.

They’ve been uploaded to the Holiday Photo Album, which also contains all the other photos taken since 2006.
