Landing round up

I’m going to start a list of all the D-Day specials I can find, so I can go back and read them when I have the time.

The Times hasdedicated most of its second section to the subject. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

The Guardian interviews an old soldier and has photos of the build up to the celebrations.

The Telegraph looks at some of the acts of remembrance and flashes back to June 1st 1944.

The BBC has a special D-Day section.

More as and when I find them.

Towering Flowers

The camera in my phone doesn’t really have the resolution to take this sort of picture, but I quite like the effect.

The Forton services mushroom. This structure was condemned years ago, I don’t think I even ate in it in the 70’s. I was going to find sites full of Forton trivia to link to here, but there’s only this one. In fact, Forton resources are so sparse that an earlier spinneyhead picture is the second result on a search for Forton Services.) One piece of Forton trivia I can pass on- the tower appears in the background of a scene from the excellent The Tale of One Bad Rat by Bryan Talbot.

Any way, I got a better picture, click on the thumbnail to view the full image-

And some pretty flower pictures. As the captions say, I’ll name them if anyone can tell me what they are. I’ll send Mum a message and ask, they are all planted on the grounds of High Trees.

And finally, my one and only picture from the banger racing.

She comes first

A few NSFW links for you. The Cunnilinguist’s manifesto

Our current model of sexual contentment is male-centric and, as such, ensures male gratification. Embrace a female-centric model of sexual pleasure – one that goes beyond penetration and ensures mutual gratification.

Level the playing field in the exchange of orgasms! Turn foreplay into coreplay!

And Trojan condoms’ Pleasure campaign. I saw one of their ads on the TV last night (Trojan Pleasure- TV ads- number 3) and I have to admit, they’re quite sexy (not as funny as the Ann Summers ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ ad though.)

A night at the Races

Last Night was racing night, sports fans, and what a great night it was. Belle Vue had it’s usual stock cars, bangers and of course the Demolition Derby, but last night there was more. Much More….

Oh yes, Last night was Robin Reliant night. Ian was a bit gutted his camera ran out of juice just in time for him to miss taking a photo similar to this:

Robin Reliant Wheelie - Tim Wilkes

If you want to see the rest of the photos and your comments and I may well set up a little gallery for Ian.
