This is just a quick post as I’m having a break from Blender 3D. It is not easy using Blender for the things it does well, PS CS6 Extended for things that are easy in there, remembering to save in formats that are acceptable to both and remembering where I put them. I use a Transcend external drive which is a big help as it communicates via USB3 and takes seconds to upload and down load to it. To add to the complications I compile the finished bits in Lightworks which is very picky about what it deems acceptable. It’s all good fun and keeps my few remaining grey cells active.
Moffat is famous and celebrated for five things; sheep, toffee, tarmac, a mail coach disaster and sheep. In this post I cover all but the sheep. I leave covering sheep to the Welsh. This is the toffee. It’s boiled sugar with a vinegarish aftertaste. I enjoy it, I don’t eat sweets often so this much lasts me a year.
I find this story very moving. Two men died delivering the post. I don’t know what happened to the horses.
Back in1831 it would have been a very prestigious job to be a postie. Like being CEO of Google is now. Mail coach driving carried greater risks but I’m impressed by the size of their headstones. People must have appreciated their sacrifice.
Whilst in the graveyard I did notice these unusual table gravestones.
I am going to Kinross for a couple of days this week. I’ll call at Falkirk to see if the Kelpies are lit up at night then I'm spending till truck test time in the Borders. I’ll try for some arty farty shots in this old churchyard when I return.
Have a good week.
