Here's one for the doubters. A genuine haggis displayed in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum!

At the risk of being flamed - when did the phrase "try and" become standard (mis)usage in the UK? I, like most , grew up hearing and using "try to" when saying something was to be attempted. Lately almost everyone seems to be saying that they were going to "try and" do something. Surely that would mean that they were going to attempt to do it AND they were going to succeed? In that case the "try" would be redundant. Wouldn't it?

Autoawesome (if that's what they call it now) from the new Google Photos. Turned a so-so picture into something quite good.

Funny, given that I'm almost completely bald!

One for the pun fans.
Two pygmy goats lock horns in the annual Oxford Cambridge Goat Race in Spitalfields, just a short distance from the River Thames and the university Boat Race.

Some shots from a walk the other day. Some early signs of spring but not many yet.

A much better idea than a cash grant, as given here in the UK.
For 75 years, Finland's expectant mothers have been given a box of baby clothes and bedding by the state. Some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world's lowest infant mortality rates.

Not too far from the truth.
