Problems with nigelbarksfield.co.uk solved?

I have moved the web site to Heliohost.org and paid $1 to get a place on their Tommy server. This is supposed to be one of the best servers in the business, so hopefully my problems are over. I have checked for dead links thanks to Deadlinkchecker.com, but if you find any please let me know. I have a few links which I am working on, and a few pictures which need updating.

Return of the water monitor lizard

I was visiting a secondary school near the office the other day and I saw another water monitor lizard. I wrote about this species before, and I put it on my Thailand page.

I very much doubt that I saw the same animal; although it was the same size as the first sighting. It appeared in a secondary school I was visiting. I think it came from an ornamental pond, although I did not see it leave the water. The lizard entered the school through an open door and promptly climbed a staircase up to a walkway on the first floor. I heard various screams from some of the girls, but I was on duty downstairs so I did not have to go and help! The animal then reappeared to me on the edge of the balcony of the first floor. It waited there for a little while until it decided to jump down in one leap. It performed a loud 'bellyflop' on the tarmac below, and then ran off into some bushes near the building. I didn't see it again. I am surprised it could still walk after a leap like that!

So, after a few months (in August 2016) I have just seen a specimen of about 2 metres in length in a ditch in the Saphan Mai district of Bangkok. It was very shy when it saw me, but I had time to get a few photographs. Water monitor photo

Apologies for interactive English being unavailable

I must apologise for interactive English being unavailable. I may have to move to another server, so please be prepared for some more downtime. This is all due to circumstances beyond my control. I am removing dead links and getting things updated.

New type of advertising available at NigelBarksfield.co.uk

I have just invented a new type of advertising inspired by the fan-powered, waving arms of inflatable figures seen at garages and other places. They are called 'armyads' and you can see one here

If you would like me to design one for you, then please let me know. (POA)

New video English lesson available

My third cartoon video is called 'Lesson One' and features the cartoon characters Nudger Ben, Yang, Kay, Deke and Rose. Nudger Ben is featured in the Ben Arai interactive lesson at NigelBarksfield.co.uk He is the uncomplaining teacher in a primary school, surrounded by mischievous students of course, who are enjoying a game of  Hide and Seek in their English lesson.

It is designed for young learners from about 3 years old to about 9 years old. The language is carefully chosen to demonstrate contextual use of common, useful phrases which need to be understood by learners, in a classroom situation. It is available as an MP4 Quicktime video (but other formats might be available on request). The price has yet to be finalized, but hopefully it will be under UKĀ£10.

You can see still pictures taken from videos here:

Two new video Christmas cards

I have been busy marketing, and making two new cartoon videos. The first is a Christmas card called 'The Corner Shop'. It is completely original, and made using SmithMicro's Anime Studio Debut 6 software. It is the second cartoon Christmas card I have made (the first was 'Christmas Flame', made in 2010). In 'The Corner Shop', a boy pulling a sledge enters, and looks in the window of a toy shop. It starts to snow, and the boy goes into the shop. He buys a model aeroplane, and leaves with the boxed-up model on his sledge.
