Don’t Make the Little Guy Angry…

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

…You’ll not like him when he’s angry. My avatar was mistaken for a goblin’s mugshot and he really isn’t happy about it.  First he’s never been in trouble with the law.  So they don’t have his DNA, clawprints or photograph on file.  Secondly he’s not a goblin:  Goblins don’t have tails or wings – at […]

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

A photograph of the overnight torrential downpour and hailstorm with thunder and lightning from the bank holiday weekend just gone. You can see a few of the hailstones bouncing off the top of the street light as bright dashes flying away from it.
