2017 – The Time to Get Moving and Achieve Those Dreams

Moving Time - Clock

I haven’t posted as much as I would have liked this year. Following up from my going anti-social post last year I have had an extremely busy year moving house, twice! After living and outgrowing our family home for 16 years I decided it was the right time to sell and move house.  Since January 2015, life has been extremely busy after the sudden loss of my fiance, forced into single motherhood and deciding to go back to my old career in working with children to gain a regular income.  With a job, I love and more importantly had the opportunity to meet new wonderful people. I had further dreams to fulfil and obviously doing this without Shaun was emotionally difficult as it was our family home, I was selling!

The art of film-making has undergone a massive transformation since the time of its inception. Not all that long ago, viewers were famously jumping out of the way of an oncoming train- dazzled by the ‘high-tech’ innovation of moving pictures. It’s a little harder these days to get such a reaction from cynical crowds who have ‘been there, done that’ a thousand times before. So what can film-makers and cinema bosses do to keep their screens packed with punters?

Display Your Cached Tweets Using PHP and OAuth

Primarily the focus on this tutorial is to display your cached tweets using PHP and OAuth on your website. We will be accessing the secure Twitter 1.1 API with PHP by parsing and caching the Json file to store on your server. It may seem a lot of code just to display your latest tweets on your website but the benefits are that you can style it to your own taste with a little CSS and caching the Json file will not add extra load on the Twitter API. For WordPress users you should use WordPress – Display your Cached Tweets using PHP and OAuth or my new plugin.
