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.

No14. Seaneeboy's a lovely lad ....

Seaneeboy's a lovely lad,
(in fact a real fungi)
You'll often find him down the pub,
A twinkle in his eye.

But just a week last Tuesday,
In his garden on the sly,
There happened a phenomenon
That caused a hue and cry...

A giant fungus had sprung up
And spread across his lawn ...
Mushroom piled on mushroom...
It looked like fungal porn ...

And in the morning after Brunch
(of bacon and fried eggs)
He took it upon himself to blog
The brain between his legs ...

Inspired by a pic on Sean's blog entitled 'the brain is back'....

...the original brain-fungi post ...

Geo and D ...Cambodia ... Not from Casualty! ....

Have just noticed that Casualty on BBC 1 have a Cambodian theme .... me and
my lemsip will be watching ....
First 5 pics taken in the schools that were part of the project - low res
cos these were taken with an old digi camera.... (have many many more taken
with SLR but haven't got round to scanning them )....
Last 2 pics are scanned from SLR pics ... me doing the touristy thing at
Angkor Wat....
Have loads more of these as well ..... landscapes etc
Hopefully will be going back soon as the education project that was set up
will be going national quite soon .... the thing that gave me the most
satisfaction when I was out there was the setting up of a small co-operative
that made educational resources (out of local materials) for local schools
... back in the 70's I was involved in a similar project in Nicaragua .....

No12. Joker XL's lost his horn

(viewed 2141 times)
Joker XL's lost his horn
(but doesn't give a hoot)
It's just the opportunity
To riffle through his boot ..

He looks inside his party box
for his special little toy,
(the one he's liked to play with
ever since he was a boy)...

He finds what he's been looking for ...
It's sitting in his lap ...
It lies there coiled and waiting...
.. a shiny little chap..

And when he comes to use it
To scare his spikey foe...
To get the full six inches*
It needs a little blow..

* These things are most effective when fully extended .....

the result of a very frustrating morning hanging about awaiting instructions for my latest project .... thank you Moblog for the distraction .......

No11. Paintist: First and Last ....an update ..

(viewed 1704 times)
Paintist was the first (not posted on my blog) and so fittingly should be the last (for now)... have a very busy few weeks ahead so no more time for sillinesses .....

My good lady of paint
Is an absolute saint,
She is talented witty and kind
Her comments are great
Her photos first rate
And her blog is a genuine find

There is just one small thing
(with familiar ring)
that puzzles me more than most
We never do see,
(or is it just me?)
Her face on anyone?s post.

A huge talent, hidden behind a huge pallette ...

No10. Mandy... with a stick down her ass...

(viewed 2361 times)
There are many folk on Moblog
Who are talented and fun,
Miss Pretty Pants (that's Mandy),
Most certainly is one .....

She likes shooting horses
(With a camera, not a gun),
But when they won't keep still for her,
Photography's no fun.

Then inspiration came to her,
(She is a cunning lass)
She solved the problem neatly with
a stick stuck down her ass!.

Mandy, the best wildlife photographer on the blog .... and a lovely funny lady to boot .....

No9. Geodyne and Dhmaka .....

(viewed 1119 times)
Geodyne and Dhmaka decided
It would be fun
To post up crazy photos
Just to confuse everyone.

In the name of plotblogging
They posted funny pics,
With Dhmaka outdoing Geo
With her photographic tricks.

But Geodyne came back,
With a flash of inspiration,
And plotblogged a plotblogging,
Just to confuse the situation ..

Plotblogging confused or what? ...... actually think I understand at last .....
