Sundy Beach

This Engrish fail was taken a year ago in Cyprus and I only just found it in my photo archives. Please link back if reproduced.

This Week In Words

Here's a visualisation of this week's blog feed; it's not hard to see where my mind's been at lately.

Mother Russia to the Rescue
Epic Engrish Fail

Also, the Pluto/Sun conjunction appears exactly on the Winter Solstice. A very interesting galactic alignment event. And there's an interesting biblical/astrological similarity to go with it.
