Wales collage


I’m still ill and spent most of the day sleeping, in bed. I’m hoping that it won’t impact on the dreamtime tonight. This post will nonetheless be a mish-mash.  The above image contains nine photos which I have posted here before. Here are their descriptions, with links to my Flickr stream: 1. Stream, 2. Pen-y-beacon, 3. la descente, 4. King Henry VII, 5. Hay Castle, 6. Shepherds and me, 7. Trericket Mill, 8. Moss on the roof, 9. St Mary the Virgin.

I ran this blog through Regender, a different kind of translator which asks the questions

According to this blog the answer would have to be pretty much the same as it is now.  Perhaps it would be more “fun” to use the tool with a lad’s mag website, just don’t expect me to provide the link.  (Hat tip: the f-word blog).

I have added a widget at the bottom of the sidebar showing a recently played list and link. This will indentify and share the songs I have recently been playing on my computer, using  I’ll see how this works over the next few days - I got rid of my Flickr widget because it seemed to slow the site down.

Philobiblon has a short post on the recent Neathandal genetic discoveries, with a link to a John Hawks post on the subject.

Autumn tree

autumn tree

Around here the leaves are still clinging onto the trees, which have been unable to shake off their orange autumn coats. This suggests that we haven’t had the seasonal snap of cold weather yet. I have written before about the process that causes leaves to go yellow, orange, brown and red.  This weekend I have been (unsuccessful) in my attempts to shake off a cold. My car went in for a service on Friday and hasn’t been returned (due to unexpected complications). This has meant I have been able to concentrate on keeping warm in bed rather than the usual weekend taxi duties.

Holly warholised

This rude-sounding word refers to the process whereby one takes a photograph (for instance of one’s niece) turns it into a more abstract version and then runs it through one of fd’s flickr toys to create an image reminiscent of some of the works of the American artist Andy Warhol.

On train again


My car is being serviced so I’m posting this from my mobile phone again, and trying to avoid the typos of yesterday. What struck me in the above photo (taken on the Metropolitan line) are the souvenirs on the bag.

On Saturday afternoon I accompanied bluemeanie on a shoe-shopping expedition. In one of the shops I was amazed to note this range of shoes called “your feet look gorgeous”. I look forward to the forthcoming range of women’s skirts and dresses named your bottom looks small.
