More Infernal Technology, Flowers and Paper Towels

Those of you following this blog, or subscribing by e-mail will have received a strange (and rather dull) post last night.  Suffice to say that I was trying to replace the Flickr link on the blog, at the same time as trying to get a series of photos to Sustrans.  The National Cycle Network Route 76, Round the Forth, through East Lothian (which passes our front door) has been permanently signposted over the last couple of weeks, and we'd been asked to check out this section.  The Sustrans server wasn't happy to receive the pictures as attachments, so my solution was to stick them up on Flickr so that those that needed to could see them.  Things went downhill from there.

By way of consolation, I thought I would share this little video that I found on TED Talks (worth investigation if you haven't found it yet).  It has nothing at all to do with our normal content, but quite a lot to do with the way we try to live.  Now if I was really smart, this would be 'embedded' or something, but that piece of wizardry doesn't seem to want to work, so you'll just have to click on this link.

I guarantee that you won't be able to use a paper towel again without thinking about Joe Smith.

We have finally had a few days of sunshine, so our Wisteria has reluctantly produced some flowers for us.  There's loads more to come, but it's keeping the powder dry for a while longer.  And if you really want to see the pictures of our sign-checking run, it's up on Flickr, and the link at the top of the blog will take you there.
