Real ale in York @ The Royal Oak #realale

The Royal Oak, York - Specialising in Real Ale and Good Food

The Royal Oak offers locally sourced, home cooked food. They also stock a fine selection of real ales in their cellar, which is served in their bar, which always has a welcoming atmosphere, with log fires burning in the cold winter months.

The building is reputedly haunted by several mysterious ghosts that come as they please. There is an old prostitute in the front bar; ghosts of children playing by the fire; a tall, gaunt man in the back room and two female ghosts, one on the first floor called Alice and one in the flat called Mary. Staff have repeatedly heard someone walk up stairs but on investigation have found no one there and staff have felt hands holding theirs as they pull pints. The tour bus stops close by Monk bar if you wish to get off and come for lunch or evening meal.

The Royal Oak, a 14th Century building, situated in the old street of Goodramgate, York!

The Royal Oak serves quality of ale, their three permanent ales, are: Theakstons Best Bitter 3.8% Theakstons Old Peculier 5.6% Abbot Ale 5.0% They also have several guest ales on tap. More information about their Real Ales can be found here.

Takumar 1:2/55mm lenses are the perfect manual lens for DSLR cameras

#Pentax SP – #Takumar 1:2/55mm lens ideal for #DSLR cameras

by peter
Takumar 1:2/55mm lens
Pentax cameras of this era came with fantastic standard lenses. The one I purchased off ebay came with an original Takumar 1:2/55mm lens, a great lens that is flexible and precise. Takumar is the name that Asahi Optical gave to its lenses, which they used on Asahi Pentax cameras. These lenses were named after the Japanese-American portrait painter, Takuma Kajiwara.

Takumar 1:2/55mm lenses are the perfect manual lens for DSLR cameras

Pentax SP 500 -Takumar 1:2/55mm lens

When the first Pentax Spotmatic was introduced to the public at the 1960 PHOTOKINA, photographic fair, in Cologne, Germany, it attracted the instant and close attention of photographers and photographic engineers alike. The model range included the original Spotmatic, Spotmatic II and IIa, Spotmatic F, plus the SP500 and SP1000. There was also the Pentax SL, which was identical to the Spotmatic except that it did not have the built-in light meter.

The Beatles

The Beatles built their reputation playing clubs in Liverpool and Hamburg over a three-year period from 1960. Manager Brian Epstein moulded them into a professional act and producer George Martin enhanced their musical potential. They gained popularity in the United Kingdom after their first hit, “Love Me Do”, in late 1962. They acquired the nickname “the Fab Four” as Beatlemania grew in Britain over the following year, and by early 1964 they had become international stars, leading the “British Invasion” of the United States pop market.

In 1962 / 63 Douglas Coakley of A & BC Chewing Gum Ltd, approached Brian Epstein, The Beatles manager, and his lawyer David Jacobs, to obtain the rights to produce trading cards featuring photographs and autographs of the Beatles. A set of 60 cards was produced and issued in 1964. The photographs were provided to A&BC Chewing Gum Ltd courtesy of Nems Enterprises Ltd, Brian Epstein’s company, and appear to be mostly taken in 1963 and maybe 1962. A second series quickly followed.

Smart businesses outsource their blog content generation #wordpress #blogger

Are you hiding?  Can everybody see the whole picture?

sitemaps_xml_screenshotThe internet is full of theories as to how you can raise your blog post’s visibility in search rankings – surely no one will contest that good original, quality content, combined with a few well-chosen tags is the best way to get the process started.

Be careful not to use too many tags — less than 12 tags is a good number

By attaching appropriated categories and tags to your blog entries you will help to enable people to search your blog more easily. An out of date blog sends out the wrong signals to your clients or readers, blogs that have more frequent and regular posting schedules tend to develop an audience quicker.

There is no point in leaving your business blog with static content. Your website is not there to be admired like a still life painting or photograph, it has to be constantly changing or your visitors will get bored and all your clients will go elsewhere.

Personal bloggers usually take pride in their blog posts, even if their blog is never read. Blogs often become more than a way to just communicate; they become a way to reflect on life, or works of art. Blogging can have a sentimental quality. Few personal blogs rise to fame and the mainstream, but some personal blogs quickly garner an extensive following.
You need to constantly update the content of your blog

What is Social Media and how can business use it?

Facebook had automatically created a page for System Culture Limited so we thought we should stake our claim...

What is Social Media and how can businesses use it?

1: Social Media Means Social Networking Social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter, have become great resources for finding new customers. But to get these networks (especially Twitter) to work to your advantage, networking is crucial. Your prospective clients search for companies with similar interests and services to their own and support them by “following” them or “liking” them. The idea is that those companies will return the favour — ultimately leading traffic to both sites, and helping each company grow.

2: Update, Update, Update The World Wide Web is more dynamic than ever these days, which means it’s becoming more and more important that your clients are frequently updating their sites. Fresh content keeps people coming back for more. Facebook fan pages need daily new content, and interactive websites such as a blog should be updated at least 3 to 4 times a week. While this may sound aggressive, clients will benefit by recognizing the importance of keeping their site content fresh — without it, people will stop visiting.

The smarter businesses outsource their blog content generation to companies who know how to extract the biggest impact with the least amount of words.

There are many pitfalls to maintaining your blog profile, an out of date blog sends out the wrong signals to your clients – have you gone bust?
