Yup, today is going well...

I managed to drop my phone in the street, it came out of it's case and the screen cracked really neatly about 1/4 of the way down. It's now not seeing anything I'm trying to do below this crack, such as unlocking the phone, using the keypad, etc...

Any ideas if it'd be better to go to Google as I got it through play store, LG or through my mobile provider? If it's better to go through Google then how? Only option I've found has a "call me" button which is useful when the phone can't answer calls...

They say to cwtch the bid, city of culture, etc... What culture?

The Palace Theatre is crumbling and overgrown, the Slip bridge was taken down for repair and never put back, are any of the old copper factories still standing? This is a city that neglects its past and heritage. The one theatre still in use, the Grand, could use at least a lick of paint outside as well...

Yes, there are artworks occasionally but they're not inspiring; how many people even stop to look at them? How many notice the words engraved in the footpath by the station? How many even notice the Devil watching over the church at the east entrance of the Quadrant?

City of culture? Well where's the culture? Or any pride of it?

How have I not seen this before? :o

Sarychev Volcano Eruption from the International Space Station 

A fortuitous orbit of the International Space Station allowed the astronauts this striking view of Sarychev Volcano (Kuril Islands, northeast of Japan) in an early stage of eruption on June 12, 2009.

Google should sort out a tie up with Travelline or something... local bus data in the UK isn't great on Google Maps,. Asking for public transport between here and town, it offers a 52 minute walk, when there's a direct bus every 15mins from a stop just around the corner... #google #googlemaps
