I wasn't taken in by those prayer booths. Even Kansas isn't that mental...

Windy stuff

Oh my, that's beautiful! (Though it occurs to me that at the time of writing I'm gazing at the south of Wales and south-western England's battering as if it was a big lava lamp.)

Beautiful in its own particular way, an ongoing Tumblr thing with a self-explanatory title. It could've gone in the 'Photography to inspire" thread, but here it is: Architecture of Doom.

I can see myself being lost to the sixties for an hour later on. Meanwhile, I'm trying to think of a way to link the wind map to the theramin for the complete mesmeric experience...

My lassie started a full time, full hours, decently paid job last week as part of the anti-smoking co-ordination team for hospitals in the Glasgow area.

Could not be happier for her .. it's been a long time coming after all the hard work of her degree and subsequent job hunting.
