Blair and Brown are certainly talking the talk this week. But will telling G8 Plus members that green thinking could be a moneyspinner get through to enough people? And are they really walking the walk when the government plans road and air expansion left, right and centre?

“The book is everywhere,” Cardinal Bertone told Il Giornale newspaper, according to a report in The Times today. “There is a very real risk that many people who read it will believe that the fables it contains are true.”
“We would like to remind them it is a work of fiction and not a reliable source of information.”

Manchester council plan to have a few wind turbines and solar panels included in future developments. It’ll look cool, but are they also going to insist on energy efficent design to double the impact? I hope so, because I like the idea of living in Britain’s greenest city, which is their stated aim.

I may have slipped a little behind on the one product a week schedule. Nonetheless, here is the second Frightened to Death by Fairies picture, available as a print in a variety of sizes. A larger preview is here.
The subtitle is “The Bargest puppet was very effective.”
IN the glossary to the Rev. Mr. Carr’s “Horae Momenta Carvenae,” I find the following: “Bargest, a sprite that haunts towns and populous places. Belg. berg, and geest, a ghost.” I really am not a little amused at Mr. Carr’s derivation, which is most erroneous. Bargest is not a town-ghost, nor is it a haunter “of towns and populous places;” for, on the contrary, it is said in general to frequent small villages and hills. Hence the derivation may be berg, Germ, a hill, and geest, a ghost–i.e., a hill-ghost; but the real derivation appears to me to be b�r, Germ, a bear, and geest, a ghost–i.e., a bear-ghost, from its appearing in the form of a bear or large dog, as Billy B–‘a narrative shows.
The appearance of the spectre-hound is said to precede a death. Like other spirits, Bargest is supposed to be unable to cross water; and in case any of my craven readers should ever chance to meet with his ghostship, it may he as well to say, that unless they give him the wall, he will tear them in pieces, or otherwise ill-treat them, as he did John Lambert, who, refusing to let him have the wall, was so punished for his want of manners, that he died in a few days.

It looks great, though there are moments of balsa in the acting. The only thing I can say against it is that it would be cool if someone would put this level of creativity and effort into somethig entirely original.
