Isostatic changes… Sea level changes… and a Rice Pudding.

The planet Earth on which we stand, has a thin surface skin (lithosphere), which floats on top of a much thicker, semi-fluid, hot layer (asthenosphere). . .

Violent public conduct… part one.

Violent public conduct… part one.

' Wham ! "….  I had lifted my arm and it shuddered as it took the full impact of the incoming punch that was aimed at my face. Ow, that hurt, I recall thinking, being somewhat annoyed I had missed-timed what should have been more of a deflection. .

The owl, the badger, and the bimbling McFlurry tub.

The owl, the badger, and the bimbling McFlurry tub.

Go wait in the loading bay, you old people.

Go wait in the loading bay, you old people.

On two occasions I have witnessed an established good practice that is considerate to the more elderly shoppers in the city, turn to a sad affair. Once when a traffic warden decided it was a good idea for the lady to shuffle back into the shop, through the shop, and wait in the loading bay, where I could then go collect her…. we were already at the car.

If you don't like the news, go out and make some.   Quotes "The trouble with doing something right the first time is that … Read entire article »
