<p>Well, it's been a while since I've been able to spend some time here. Everytime I plan to, life has seemed to conspire to keep me away!

Your help needed!!


By Paul Oakley, 2010-08-14

<p>Firstly I have to say sorry I haven't been around here lately - actually i haven't been around anywhere much but that doesn't make me feel less guilty for asking for help <img title="Smile" src="http://www.mixposure.com/include/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif" border="0" alt="Smile" /></p><p>I have an online petition running to help protect the dolphins in the Moray Firth (Scotland), which are under threat from gov't plans to allow seismic surveying - all the details are on the petition site but I REALLY need your signatures (please!)</p><p>The petition is here: <a href=&quot;http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/save-the-moray-firth-dolphins/">http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/save-the-moray-firth-dolphins/</a></p><p>These dolphins can be seen from the shore and are in a so called 'protected area' but this doesn't seem&nbsp;to make much difference - We welcomed these&nbsp;wonderful creatures&nbsp;into the bay and encouraged them to live, breed and fish in a protected area we created for them - now we risk driving them away (or worse, physically hurting them with the testing which can disrupt and damage their sonar and therefore their ability to fish and feed).</p><p>OK, rant over <img title="Yell" src="http://www.mixposure.com/include/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-yell.gif" border="0" alt="Yell" /></p><p>I also have a video at YouTube that we took earlier in the year, set to one of the tracks from my CD...</p><p>&nbsp;<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="480" height="385" codebase=&quot;http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><param name="src" value=&quot;http://www.youtube.com/v/OQGSrh54K6M&amp;rel=1"></param><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/OQGSrh54K6M&amp;rel=1" wmode="transparent"></embed></object></p><p>&nbsp;YouTube link is: <a href=&quoProtect the Dolphins in the Moray Firth (Paul Oakley) Oakley</p><p>PS This isn't a political thing, it's about wildlife, ecology and the planet!</p>

One More Ride - a new song!!

Well, I've finally finished the recording for my new CD and this is the last song. <br /><br />
<p>I've (very!) reluctantly decided to sell my bike, so I wrote this to ease the pain a little <img src="images/smilies/face-smile.png" border="0" alt="smile" title="smile" /><br /><br /><br />Put on your leathers, start&nbsp;your engines&nbsp;and enjoy the ride <img src="images/smilies/face-grin.png" border="0" alt="grin" title="grin" /><br /><br /><a href=&quot;http://www.mixposure.com/Paul_Oakley/music.php">http://www.mixposure.com/Paul_Oakley/music.php</a><br /><br /><br />--Paul</p>

'Call of the Wild' video


By Paul Oakley, 2008-06-06
'Call of the Wild' video

<p>It's taken three months, but I've put together a video for my song 'Call of the Wild' - it's on my page and at YouTube here:</p>
<p><a href=&quoCall of the Wild (Oakley/Carter/Millard); target="_blank"><span style="font-size: xx-small; color: #006699;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"&gCall of the Wild (Oakley/Carter/Millard) style="font-size: xx-small;"> </span></p>
<p>The lyrics were written as a poem by my father-in-law, after seeing a documentary where they said that tigers could be extinct in the wild in two years. I wrote the music and Dave Millard added the amazing vocals. The download is for sale on my website (<a href="http://www.paul-oakley.com">www.paul-oakley.com</a&gt;) and ALL the profits are going to wildlife charities - full details are on the website.</p>
<p>We're also selling CDs of the song&nbsp;- please contact me if you want one, although be warned, the postage to the US isn't cheap...</p>
