The park

The bandstand in the park is rarely used. The Tea shop is closed. The boating pond had its boats withdrawn. 

Still, the skate park is still popular with the yoof.

Diplomatic Blunder 2

This strange shape shifting object worries me. It has been in out kitchen cupboard forever, but neither of us remembers buying it. 

I am starting to wonder if it is some sort of alien communication device.

Furthermore if you surprise it, it does this.

If it actually turns out to be the Ambassador from the planet Zorg, then we are in trouble. We just put him in a pan of boiling water and put spinach on his head.

Students of this blog will know that this sort of thing has happened before.

How do they do that?

It is that time of year when bulbs stir into life and spear through the soil to produce a perfectly vertical shoot, despite the random angle their parent bulb was planted.

How do they do that?

Seeing in black and white

Aah, good old black and white.

How is it that monochrome images are acceptable? Is it a culture thing? Or is it that we apparently revert to black and white vision, if it is dark enough. Perhaps it is something we just accept at a deep level.
