SUNSHINE AND SHOWERS. (28/01/16)

I am being a little economical with the truth titeling this post with showers. We have enjoyed torrential rain again but the sun has appeared from time to time.
I have had a trip to the supermarket and have managed to get one Daily Telegraph whilst there and another I asked to be fetched up from the town. I have noticed that the cyptic crossword is getting easier, dumbing down I think it’s called. They do have a very difficult one inside the paper but that is impossible for me.
There is plenty to rant about but I can’t be bothered as half of it is smoke and the other fifty percent mirrors. The Piggy Poking Porky Pie telling procrastinator is still much the same. Standing in Parliament blaming everyone but himself. What a plonker to put in charge of anything let alone a country.
Earlier in the week I fell in lust, it could be serious this time. Though considering the thirty year age gap I suspect I worry needlessly. Blender is still amusing and confusing me; I have found an interesting feature or two and one of them, the Cast Modifier, may even be useful. I have been playing with the waterfall again but it looks silly unless I also use the same system for the stream head and tail. This is possible but not practical as it’s render takes eight minutes a frame so three hours twenty minutes for every second of video. I will have to fake it somehow or get rid of the water. I could mask in some video of this small stream and sculpt the landscape around it. I’ll give it a whirl.
Here are a few snaps.

It’s nice when the sun shines but not so nice when the rain catches me before I get home.

  3. It takes a mind different than mind to do any sort of cryptic crossword.

    1. John, being mad as a sack of spiders helps.

  4. Cryptic crosswords, like Blender, require a bigger brain than mine or perhaps I should say they require a degree of concentration and dedication that my brain is not prepared to allocate to the task. As for the weather, don't get me started.

    1. Graham, the weather shows no sign of changing. Blender is an excellent toy and should be treated as one. It does have added complications when used on a Mac.

  6. Huh 30 year age gap that's nothing these days, what's the worse she'll do...apart from whacking you with a brolly :-). An older friend uses the 'Bernie Ecclesstone scale'. If he looks as silly as Bernie does with his young woman he doesn't bother.
    I like the last two images.
