Given I have rather more work to complete than is good for me, I have had a rather gentle day. I caught up with some of yesterday’s paper. There were thoughtful pieces, an interview with Jeremy Corbyn I could not bring myself to read, a piece about very small gardens I have put aside to read later, comment about the presidential race in the US. This picture caught my eye.
At first glance I could not see what it had to do with the headline “How we went inside the heart of America’s deadly gun culture”. I looked again, and realised that the object to the left of the cross in front of the lamp is a gun. On this side of the pond, the juxtaposition of gun, cross and respectable looking woman in her late middle years looks like a trailer for television crime thriller. In so many ways our cultures are close, and generally we seem to understand each other, but the adherence some of our American cousins have to carrying arms is probably the thing that baffles us most on this side of the pond. Not that we are in any position to mock. We have a Prime Minister who wants to repeal the Human Rights Act, says “Brexit means Brexit” which leaves no one any the wiser as we do not know what Brexit means.
Fortunately there was MasterB’s 2017 calendar to put together. I had a bit of a fight with Photos; why Apple should make it so fiddly to select the lay outs you want for each month is beyond me. However, the first version is complete, and has been sent to a discerning customer, aka Pix, for comments and suggestions.
Some of the photos will be familiar to followers of this page. These for example.
So if you are thinking you would like a calendar of the Ginger Ninja to accompany your days through 2017 let me know soon as I shall be getting them printed shortly. The price will probably be about the same as last year depending on printing and postage costs.
