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.

Took a trip to Ardrossan the other day. Most of the trip along the coast was done in glorious sunshine with a marvellous view of Arran. It's just my luck that the sun was hidden when I go there. I did, however, manage to get this one shot from the top of Castle Hill.

Kept me hooked on the screen
 
This man turns juggling into an art form:
Michael Moschen puts on a quietly mesmerizing show of juggling. Don't think juggling is an art? You might just change your mind after watching Moschen in motion.

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?

One of the most chilling stories I've read.
A short story about death, immortality, and continuity of being.
