A new website is born!

All i can say is i'm very sorry for being a week late with my update but its getting very exciting now with lots of things going on in sunny South Wales and lots of things getting ready for Zakynthos.

Along with all the other stuff i decided to build a new website for Oceanic. Now before anyone panics i will still be annoying people with my ramblings on my blog as i need somewhere to let my phsyciatric nurse know i'm ok and still only bordering on mentally insane, so here for you all to enjoy is the website. There is a picture gallery of my customers at the back of the website and as i recieve pictures i add them, so if your not on there but have pics of yourself in the Oceanic then please add them to Oceanic Chill Out Bar facebook and i'll transfer them to the website. If your not on the websites gallery yet its only because i don't have your pic, i've put all the ones i have on there and add some everyday as i find them.

So where do i start, well my business seems to be of some interest as to which country i buy things from but as the tax inspector who visited my business last year found out everything is accounted for thats because i do everything by the book, best to safe than sorry i say. Also if anyone is thinking of setting up a business in Greece you can get papers drawn up by your accountant for the Greek tax office that allows you to buy things from outside Greece but you can't claim the tax back against your business but you can use the items in your business. another one of Kev's helpful business tips LOL.

Now i've been in Carmarthen for just under 2 years and have only just gone for a walk in the woods behind the house, well to be honest we hardly ever get a sunny dry day to do so but amazingly we had a week of sun, i know i was shocked as well. I put on my boots and off i went up in to the woods that stretch up a hillside to view out over Carmarthen. It took me back to the days of when i was in the SAS and how to blend in with the surroundings so the enemy can't spot you and you have the element of surprise on passing soldiers. Now at this point we're going to have a game of "Where's Wally?" see if you can spot me in the photographs but my camouflage is that good that no matter what clothing you have on you can blend in. so first i'll show you the woods of where i go walking then i'll put up 3 pics and see if you can spot me in them, then below those pics i shall post the same 3 pics pin pointing where i am with a red eclipse.
The beautiful Woods i've only just found after nearly 2 years.
The view across Carmarthen fron the top of the woods.

So here are the 3 areas that i am using to show my SAS training to blend in with my surroundings, can you spot me? After you've studied these 3 pictures i shall then highlight myself so you can see how good you can camoflage yourself no matter what your wearing.

Well how did you get on? Did you spot where i was hiding? it is tricky so you have to look very closely. Now here are the same pics with me highlighted to show exactly where i am, don't want you going crazy taking hours trying to spot me so i will put you out of your misery.

This is called The Branch, this is where you hold your arm and leg out to look exactly like the branches of the tree, taking this position you can attack quickly and quietly.

This is called The Trunk, taking this position among a few other trees can be very useful if outnumbered as you can stay here all day and no one would find you.

This is called The Boulder, always a good one in an open space with no trees near you to take up The Branch or The Trunk position, just be aware you may be sat on by passing tired soldiers but a great position for the element of surprise.

I hope you found these SAS tactics useful for when you may find yourself out in the wild during Gorilla warfare.
Looking to head back to Zakynthos in March for a week as need to start the refurb on the bar then finish it off when i arrive in April. Got a whole new menu with more new unique cocktails only available at the Oceanic, you can see a few samples on the new website. Now where as some bars all over the world change the names of original cocktails to suit their bar i've just pinched the names of some and added my own cocktail recipe as i needed some rock song titles to use as names for my cocktails but hey as Led Zeppelin once said "The song remains the same" its just the ingredients i've changed LOL!

Well its time to go and make some food, today i'm making fresh salmon steak with mild sweet chilis, mushroom and onion wrapped in a filo pastry casing, come on BBC wheres my own cooking show, i could call it "The only idiot in the kitchen" or "Simple food by a simple guy" or "Beans on toast, now thats fine dining"
