My Second Blue Moon

Here it is my second and better photo of a blue moon in this special 2 moon month.

Unfortunately, unlike the USA we don’t get the blood part… You will need to click on the photo to see its full glory.

Here’s a couple more that what they lack in detail make up for in atmosphere…

My road then and now…

I am indebted to Lee for sending me the photograph of my Road – Kenilworth Road. You will note that there are no cars and three gas lamps so it was probably taken by Lee in the late 1890’s – he really doesn’t look his age…

The second photo was taken by me this morning which explains why the shot is not too clear but the view and the houses are practically identical.

The irony, not lost on me, is that the reason I was out so early this morning was to move my car parked in a restricted zone about 1/2 mile away which is as close I could get last night…

Anyway amazing – thanks Lee…

All The Presidents Men?

Various reports I have read regarding the now defunct Presidents club are extremely generalised  and use the term ‘the men’. I wonder  how many of the men were actually participating in this sort of lewd and aggressive behaviour out of the 360 who attended. I find it hard to believe that it was more than a small minority? Maybe, I’m naive? Others, are perfectly prepared to believe that it was nearly all the men.

Actually, the thing that I find most upsetting is the fact that some of the charities are now going to refund donations received. In the case of Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital this amounts to some £530,000 and when you think about what that kind of money can do to help fund research, fight disease, buy vital equipment and make sick children a bit more comfortable my frustration knows no bounds.
