As another aside I pass a place which, I presume at least, produces wood. They are called something like R Shadwell Ltd and are just south of the North Circular Road somewhere to the north-east of London. They have a sign up displaying the "Veneer of the Week"; I remember this from the time when I was passing along that bit of road every day and I always looked out for the new veneer. Last week the veneer was something like "Narrow Grain Red Oak" and his week it is "Crown Cut Plain Ash". What a fine sounding name, rolls off the tongue and resounds in my head with hidden meanings.
|Crown :||The Queen and all the history of our royal family|
|Cut :||The end of that, beheading, Oliver Cromwell, revoluion|
|Plain :||The British people, carying on regardless of the machinations of the politicians|
|Ash :||The remains after fire, death and cremation|
I know, I'm just a romantic at heart :) but that's just how I am, inpart at least. I'm also an incurable cynic :)welcome to "Contradictions R Us" :)
Right, off to look for a website where they are showing pictures of the sun ... if I understand it correctly someone has driven a transit van into it and if you look you can see its shadow *shrugs* This science stuff is strange eh?
