Welcome to the One Legged Robin

Here you will find information which I hope you will find both interesting and educational. There are diverse (eclectic even) topics including the story of the One Legged Robin; home cheese making and home made charcuterie. By sharing my personal experiences I hope to perhaps help you understand some of the issues I have dealt with and learned from, such as how to make a cheese press or what are the EU limits for curing salts.

The photo blog aims to provide a story behind the view, not just a collection of photographs. Sometimes the story is personal, sometimes place specific. Check out the Magpie Mine story or the Sandwood Bay Spitfire. →

One Legged Robin

About me

For now I prefer to stay anonymous; I am the one legged robin. This may change, we'll see how it goes. I will say that I am a scientist (biologist) and that may explain some of my ramblings. I do this for fun, you won't find any annoying adverts or click-bait here. If you like (or dislike for that matter) anything please leave a message in the comments sections at the bottom of the photo blog page; the cheese making page or the charcuterie page.

You can also contact me via the contact page and you can follow me on Instagram.

If you wish to use any of the photographs for any purpose then please do contact me and ask. I own the copyright to all the images except for a couple that I have used courtesy of Adobe Creative Cloud; the owner of these is credited.→

Website production

I use Adobe Muse. I like it, so far. I know that web professionals say that it produces "bloated code". Well, it works for me, it's very adaptable, flexible, easy to use and there is a lot of support out there. Life is too short for me to learn HTML coding, sorry to all you purists, but that's progress.

Why Muse when I could do this cheaper, or even for free, on Weebly or Wordpress or Facebook even? Simple, because I hate templates. I want to be able to put that there, move this over here, have that colour there etc. Muse works well for me; the more I use it the more I like it.

 

Responsiveness

Adobe updated Muse to enable building of responsive sites as of March 2016. This site is now responsive and should work fine on your desktop, tablet or mobile. Converting the original site to responsive has been a labour of love. It was not as easy as Adobe made out...  Going forward, things should be simpler.
