With the current discussion on what to do with the request for more troops to fight the war in Afghanistan, here's an idea: Let's turn the swords into school books and school yards and school rooms and teachers. Read Nick Kristof's article here for pretty convincing proof that more schools in that country are being built and used by the Afghani people. I bet the soldiers would rather do all that as well. (Btw, have I said War is Stupid recently?)

Originally posted here (along with other St. Mary's Road photos) back in May of 2008. She was out reading some more meters this morning and drove up as I was standing over in Diane's garden taking photos - see previous blog entry - wee things. She thought I was a scarecrow at first.

At least nine of the big birds came by to say hello yesterday afternoon. Each of them found a branch to roost on but only for a little bit before they took off for more soaring and gliding. It was just after noon; expect they were having a lunch get together.

This week: Play - Images of the things you spend all your time thinking about
when you SHOULD be working that isn't sex.
I also am passionate about photography so this is one of those two-in-one deals. For more 'play' photos from around the world, go here. And don't forget that you can play, too.
