Knowledge pursues me but I am faster.......

If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit.......

.......One day, we will look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject…

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

Thanks all, and the biggest thanks of all to Joker :)

(viewed 1075 times)
... and the biggest thanks of all must go to Joker ... It was he, single-handedly, that put together the book of my first 100 Moblog cartoons ... he designed the cover and the whole layout and sorted it out on Blurb in order to get it published ... I had the much easier task of indulging in my displacement activity and just doing the cartoons ....

... The book is dedicated to Alex (of course) and is being sold in order to raise money for ELF (the Elimination of Leukeamia Fund) .... I will add all the links later (that will explain who Alex was and how to buy the book) ... Sorry to say I am a little too busy at the moment (I am not very good with the clicky links) ... But for now just visit JokerXL's blog) ....

.... Oh yes, and I really would like to thank all the mobloggers that have been my victims (50+ at the last count) over the last (nearly) two years ... it has been fun ... and thanks for being such good sports ...

Shoot London and the Cans Festival ...

(viewed 1016 times)
OK, I am lazy, posting a Shoot London update with a pic from the Cans Festival.....

Shoot London ... we now have a theme .... the pic is meant to give you a clue ......

The Cans Festival .... worth a visit, we queued for 45 mins and spent an hour wandering up and down the (covered) road .... if you are into 'street art' and there was some of the very best, then I would recommend it. It's free, and is ever increasing as people can add their own. I have posted my favourite, OK, not stereotypical stencil art, but I just liked the way it suited the hewn away brickwork ..... l am sure lots of other Mobloggers will post their pics so don't feel I have to post more than my favourite .....

The Highlands in April, beauty without the bites ....

Had a lovely break up in the highlands of Scotland, April is a great time to visit. We were very lucky with the weather, blue skies and sunshine and the scenery was just stunning ..... and NO MIDGES! .... I want to go back again this time next year and do some 'proper' walking .......

.... pic 2 reminds me of an Irish folk song, something about the last island swan (Christie Moore?) ... this lonely lad was the only bird on the loch and looked a little sad .....

Small, but perfectly framed ....

(viewed 944 times)
OK, I admit I am a little Shoot London obsessed at the moment ..... but this will be my last 'plea' post for a while (I am off to the Highlands of Scotland next week for a bit of a break) ....

.... so, please can I have team names from team leaders (there is a whole long list of suggestions somewhere in my last Shoot London posts) you can choose from that or make up your own ... Nige has come up with
'The Photogenic Hustlers Convention' for his, immortalised in metal and plastic already :)

..... I also need an email address from all of the team leaders to give to the organisers (I will be emailing you all in the next few days) ..... all this has to be done by the end of the month (though team names etc can be changed right upuntil the day (I will happily just choose names willynilly from the list if peeps don't come up with names) ....

.... I am just hoping that 'Water' will not be the theme .....
