Yes, my Mad Men obsession is rising again. A new series, but I can't watch it yet. (BitTorrenting is Copyright Theftm kids. You wouldn't steal, would you?
Ahem, so I'd say there's a Mad Men feel to this. The husbands are inside, watching the Superbowl on a massive 22inch screen, and the wives are out here, bitching about the new divorcee at number 1198.

There I said. And I'm proud to be Scottish. There's many many things to be proud of (and yes, some things to be ashamed of) and I don't use it as an excuse to hate the english.
However, what bugs me is that so many folk can't separate the real Scotland from the Tartan Tourist Trap / Highland Games / Clan Kilt / Victorian invented crap that this American slide hints at. And don't get me started on "Lone Bagpiper" shite.

Unfortunately, it's not nearly as dramatic as it sounds. This is the Dorset one, names after Maurice Deadman, (1721-1788) "The Bard of Shipley. (That's Shipley in Yorkshire, not the Dorset one. You can understand why people get confused.)

Outside his Atlanta condo, Mr Frederic Lucas tried to demonstrate his prototype Light-Sabre in March 1959. However, due to a defective Flux Capacitor, the demo was an abject failure, and the US Space Marine Corp left in a right royal huff.
Years later, his son George would remember the invention and used a working version in his films. C'est La Vie.

An entirely decent shot - kids face and naughty bits not even visible, and zero change of identifying the subject after 60 years. But my consulting lawyers (Haddock Bumble and Tibia plc) had the worrying thought - what is someone thinks that it was kitty prawn ? I could imagine anyone finding the slide arousing...but there are all sorts of weirdos out there (and in here, say some) so ... here's a picture of Milton and Maude.

This one, for example. It's just so wrong...it's right. Maybe it's the post apocalyptic look to it...I just like it.
And it's a great starting point for some artistic noodling.

Ant n Dec's promotional tour of Italy didn't get the crowds that they expected, and the massed ranks of riot control police (shown here) felt rather unnecessary. Serves then right,
Bonus - Go on. Admit it. You want this.

As usual ( :-( ) absolutely no info on this slide of who, when, why, where or even whether. So, I'm forced to guess, based upon minimal clues.
I'm guessing the far north. No, not Sheffield, I'm guessing northern Norway or maybe Greenland. There's a gorgeous colour saturation to this slide, but it's marred by a certain carelessness in focussing. Damn.
Bonus - No Reason...

Easter Monday. Nigel's Mum is clearly delighted with her Bunny Cake. Nigel is is clearly delighted by his companion.... umm.... thing. If that's a real dog, then why has it the face of a deer ?? Or has Lassie been stuffed by an inexperienced taxidermist? Either way - disturbing.
