Mrs Queen does not like being ripped off. She will do the ripping off for herself, thank yew very much.
The man responsible for maintaining Buckingham Palace is jailed for five years after he accepted more than £100,000 in bribes.

Trump claims there is no drought in California. This once healthy sycamore tree in my bank's parking lot is dying from the drought in California. We're in the 4th year of a severe drought in California.

At my local CostCo in Mountain View this afternoon, people were excited about a visit from this guy called "Shack". Apparently he is well known for playing a popular sport a bit better than many other players. (I really don't follow sports). I thought he'd be taller.

Now he is flogging bottles of "his" vodka to punters. He was accompanied by an entourage that included two bodyguards. Photographs were forbidden unless you bought some of his hooch, so I had to snap this stealthily. I don't know, but I would think he could monetize his name with some better product or cause. For example, adult literacy, or a reading program for at-risk kids.

This is the only time I have heard of Shack or met him, +Kevin Patton , and I am judging based on what Shack is doing in front of me.
If you have more or different information, please let me know, and I will gladly change my mind accordingly.

Seen at the last Farmer's Market of the season today. Note the MIT sticker on the driver's side rear quarter panel. The license plate might therefore refer to a "High Availability Grid [of cpus or power]" rather than a Harry Potter character.

Regardless. The broader point is that it's a special (awesome) kind of person who goes to farmer's markets.

Perhaps the owner of the car was even aware of the ambiguity.

Like every high profile mobile software developer, I get come-ons from recruiters every single day.

I've completed too many Death March projects already, but this is the first time they've been honest about it up front.

Bought these Xmas crackers today. The package is clearly labelled WARNING! EXPLODES WHEN TAPES ARE PULLED.
Yes, that is kind of the entire point of Xmas crackers.

Last Farmer's Market of the season, Lost Altos, Calif. There was a definite feeling of the circus packing up and leaving town. A melancholy tone under the sharp sunlight and the mellow fruitfulness.

+Peter van der Linden It's a quiet community that is in a great location as far as So. Cal goes. There is a family farm that has the BEST avocados at the market. Haven't bought a store one since I found them. Awesome generational family farm that is pretty much extinct around Orange County.
If you come this way let me know and I will give you the info on it.

Engine shed, Didcot. Everyone's leaching off the glorious legacy of God's Wonderful Railway.

Apple just finalized a huge lease on the old Battersea Power Station (the one that featured as the cover of the Pink Floyd Animals album).
I bet they are steamed at the Brexit stupidity.
Apple has signed the lease for a large new headquarters to be located in London's iconic Battersea Power Station. A heritage-protected former coal-fired power station situated on the banks of the River Thames, the site is currently undergoing a significant £8 billion (US$10 billion) redevelopment.

Yes dam that independence vote, might of abolished slavery earlier had it gone the other way. :P

As for Apple using this building I'm actually happy about it compared to the alternative of turning it it yuppie flats for oversea investors who use them a week a year at most. So kinda good thing this on that level and I don't see Apple doing anything garish and disrespectful towards the architecture. This and frees up land that will end up as cheaper flat's. Though does seem that the UK leaving the EU means nothing to Apple,. More so as there base of operations European wise is Ireland and has been since the early days the company.

Given that I don't gamble then how much do you want to bet?
