There are only two snaps today. One from yesterday afternoon and one from first thing this morning. I’ll get them out of the way..
Tranquil Floodwater. I’ll miss the floods when they go. I haven’t a long lens at the moment but these paddy fields are providing a temporary home to gulls, lapwing and a small flock of sandpipers….I think, not sure about the latter and less sure about what they are finding to eat.
There has been little to laugh at in the news.
Jeremy Forrest and Megan whatever she’s called have been apprehended in France. It’s a good job she’s okay….. Jeremy must be a saint….. How he’s managed to spend a week with a teenager without throttling her is beyond my comprehension. She is being sent home and he is being ‘Held under suspicion of child abduction’. Bloody amazing, I love the suspicion bit. I only have to park outside the newsagents for a couple of minutes and I’m presumed guilty and fined sixty pounds. He runs off with a minor and is only suspected of a crime.
A member of parliament is suggesting that MPs should be allowed to job share…..We are already inundated with the buggers who precious few of us vote for. Why do we need more? If she can’t find a couple of hours a week to MP then just resign. The world is going to pot.
Talking of pot, apparently cannabis usage is declining. I wonder how they know? It reminds me of a piece in Private Eye years ago. They reported that a Mr X had been caught in possession of a quantity of cannabis worth seventy pounds. They commented that they could only assume the Met were paying at least twice what everyone else was for dope.
I caught the tail end of a discussion on suicide bombing. Two things occurred to me. The first is the sheer lunacy off it and the second a more practical consideration. How do they train suicide bombers? I have this image in my mind of a cave full of bearded Arabs sitting in rows with the instructor at the front. He’ll have finished the theory and now moves on to a demonstration………..” Now all pay attention! You sure you’re all awake! LISTEN UP NOW!. I’m going to show you this once and ONLY ONCE!”
That’s all for today…..enjoy the weather.
I don’t often do this but I’ve just seen some fantastic images go to CLAUDIA. See what she has found.
That’s definitely all for today.
