Apologies if we’ve had this link before but here’s a Stakeboarding Bulldog. This isn’t a pet that likes to get pushed along on a stakeboard, it actually skates. It puts one leg on the board, runs with the other three and then jumps on the board when up to speed. Then it actually steers. Freaky but cute.
Kingsmead Primary in Northwich is designed as a self regulating green building. The kids are getting into the spirit as well by walking or cycling rather than doing the school run.
Maybe the country isn’t sliding into stupidity after all.
Fox hunting as a class issue. The last paragraph makes some important points. There are many, many more important issues. I only differ with Monbiot in that I think we should just move on to them and leave the hunting issue behind.
Of all the days to forget my camera I had to choose the one when they opened up loads of the buildings in Ancoats. Oh well. It was an informative wander and I have a load of targets for later photographing.
I ought to open with an apology. I’ve been ranting about the rebranding of Ancoats as �New Islington�, thinking it was developers ashamed of the heritage. Turns out, when that area of the industrial suburb was built, lots of the streets and sections were named for London landmarks. So there, it was actually the Industrial Revolutionaries who were ashamed of the local heritage.
