The weather here has been so bad lately, rain coming down hard and often, that I thought I’d use it as a good thing and post my favourite songs featuring rain in the title. With no particular order (and with apologies to Adele and Led Zeppelin), feel free to choose a favourite or any you want to add.
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.
We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.
Well done is better than well said.
The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.
Trouble knocked at the door, but, hearing laughter, hurried away.
You may delay, but time will not.
There is much difference between imitating a man and counterfeiting him.
Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
Time for some wisdom by Ben Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers and an all-round talent (1706 – 1790). You can find another of his quotes here.
Regular readers will know how big a fan of cartoons I am, especially ones featuring animals. So it’s always nice to fun to post a collection of funny photos. These are from Scott Metzger, whose work you may well recognise from this post and the first cartoon from this one. Do you have any pets? Which is your favourite from the ones below?
You all know how big a fan of cartoon strips I am. Have eight of my current favourites.
Regular readers of my blog will know of my great love of photography, especially when covering nature and the animal world. So when I saw The Underwater Photographer of the Year 2019 I just had to include it here. If you want to see full quotes and the relevant award winners from the photographs below, please click on The Guardian’s feature here. Please feel free to let me know which is your favourite.
Before the exhibition finished, I was able to see the visual delights that were the Winter Lights at Canary Wharf, a free annual festival that celebrates light, colour and movement.
I just love ice statues. Especially the ones in Winter Wonderland. They’re so creative and magical, with the lights adding that ethereal touch. Using 500 tonnes of sculptured ice and snow, this year’s theme was a wintry forest, filled with animals including wolves, unicorns and bears. In the first of two posts, please enjoy the display.
After my last post on the EPSON International Pano Awards I wasn’t planning on doing another photography post. But it proved so popular I thought I should do another. But rather than just choose ones that hadn’t made the cut, I thought I’d choose my favourites from the previous years of the competition. They were so striking I cheekily added an extra one. Which one jumps out most at you?
