"The Misty Meadows.."

Shot near Taumarunui, North Island, NZ

The Sun breaking through the heavy early morning mist.

Just a cool scene I saw as I was driving by. Luckily this time there was a place to pull over in a very convenient and safe place. On road trips sometimes moments appear and disappear in a matter of seconds when you are driving and more often than not there is never anywhere to safely stop the car. On this occasion I was lucky, the thistles in the foreground were a nice addition to what I had seen previously.

Free! We've had confirmation from Meriam Ibrahim's lawyers that she is free and with her husband, after an appeal court found her 'not guilty' of both apostasy and adultery. Thank you all so much for taking action - over 200,000 of you here in the UK, and more than a million worldwide. Your pressure has paid off. Thank you.

I didn't know that, since 2007, 16th June has been Sussex Day. Apparently it's the feast day of St Richard of Chichester, the patron saint of Sussex.

For Neil Finn's birthday, 27th May.

Had a really great evening at Nottingham three weeks ago.  It was good to hear songs from Split Enz to Dizzy Heights, via Crowded House, Finn Brothers, solo...

It's been good to know where your towel is for many years - this is 14th century Italy. I'm not sure if that is a monkey sitting on the table - perhaps taking a break from writing Hamlet?

I went on an organised cycle ride around Leicester recently to see places associated with suffragettes such as Alice Hawkins.

I've voted today.
1884: Any man occupying property worth more than £10 can vote
1918: All men over 21 and women over 30 given the vote.
1928: All women over 21 given the vote
1948: Universal Declaration of Human Rights includes the right to vote
1969: Voting age reduced to 18.
A lot has happened for us all to get the vote. Use yours today.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

Article 18.

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
Meriam Yehya Ibrahim is eight months pregnant. She has been sentenced to death for simply being a Christian and 100 lashes for marrying a christian man. She must be released immediately.
Say NO to executing Meriam Yehya Ibrahim! http://bit.ly/1t0usaH
