Nature thumbs its nose


This photo, taken in Strasbourg’s Petite France district, shows a sapling growing half-way up the outside of a wall. Admittedly, it is inside a lock (ecluse), so that the bottom half of the wall is normally wet.

This week The Two Towers (4 disc extended DVD) is being released in the UK. It’s a good buy, because you get to see the bits of the film that were left out of the cinema version (plus commentaries, filmography, shorts, etc.).  I have pre-ordered my copy, and after reading these I am pleased that I didn�t� get that early-released, pirated, version from Asia.  Even if the subtitles are more creative.

Just want to point out, mon papa, that the book/film you are refering to is not called “The Twin Towers”, as you suggest above. That name was given to the New York towers, which stood until Sept. 2001. The book by J.R.R. Tolkein, recently made into a film directed by Peter Jackson, was entitled “The Two Towers”.

Thanks!  Please note that I have corrected my original post from The Twin Towers to The Two Towers
