I was about to say I had done nothing again....but no! Today I cut mine and a neighbours hedge in preparation for the Crete trip. Not that the neighbour is coming you understand it's just easier to do both sides! It had grown like hell due to the rain in May.....looks very pretty now and will make my time on holiday slightly more relaxing knowing I'm not coming back to the hedge from hell! I stared and watched the rain this afternoon because that seemed the right thing to do given the weather....and more importantly I added a lot of new wonderful film blogs and sites to my list of sites who use film. You haven't been over there? It will save you looking here there and everywhere. There are about 55 there now, so either click on links at the top of the page or click here and see people making a difference with film. One notable addition over the past week has been the Fimwasters Blog, they are collecting the rss feeds of all the people who are members over at Fimwasters. You are a member right? No? Go on, if you use film get on over there, a wealth of film experience at your finger tips, print exchanges and all manner of other wonderfulness! You can just lurk if you like and enjoy the conversation. I won't mention it again.

Today's photo was from a little wander around Bath with the Holga last month and my ongoing yet slow project of trying to find an alternative view of Bath....Oh I know Angie way too slow for you!!! I'm getting there. Bath is largely know for The Royal Crescent and I guess most people living outside of the city are unaware of the mass of other architectural gems that lie hidden. This one is Cavendish Crescent, built between 1817 and 1830 by John Pinch the Elder (1770-1827) who along with his son John Pinch the Younger (1796-1849) were architects working mainly in the city of Bath. A small yet perfectly formed Crescent, this is one of the end houses. For a better impression of how it looks here is an aerial shot with Lansdown Crescent visible in the background.

BBC correspondent Alan Johnston was abducted in Gaza on 12th March 2007. Video was released recently of him by his captors but still more pressure is needed on the various governments to act. Why not sign the Petition in the hope that it will assist with his early release.

He has a router
And a table saw... and you
Won't believe what Mr. Sticha saw
There's poison underneath the sink
Of course... But there's also
Enough formaldehyde to choke
A horse... What's he building
In there. What the hell is he
Building in there?
