Where am I now? [*]

Following the success of Where are we now? from Jules-n-James, I present you with a slightly harder one:


[*] I am, of course, not there now. Nor was I there when I wrote this. But I was there when I took the photo.


* Poppies

January: Cold in Cambridge (but this is from early-Feb, since I don't have anything terribly good from January. The best I can offer is smoke on the water). February: early bees. March: Phoebe. Our cat. April: Petals on water. May: Humble bumbles. June: Stubai. The entire place is unbearably…
Scott Mandia accuses Chronicle of Higher Ed to Its Bloggers: Feel Free to Disparage Climate Science but not Black Studies. This is in reference to Mann suing the National Review for libel (see, e.g. DA or BA). The Chron piece seems piss-poor, as does their lying evasion about no-editorial-control…

I'm not quite sure what it is. It is something like a houseleek - click on the tiny pic of its base for a bigger view, or here for a fuller view. I bought it in a village sale a few years back and it has sat outside come sun, rain and drought. This is the first year it has flowered. It reminds…

Arrgh, wrong. Should have looked at the windows.

Judging from the cheering for British helicopters slaughtering Libian civilians, I'd say you were in [PA deleted -W] land.

[Since I haven't, you r comment is hard to understand. And since AFAIK, our helicopters haven't killed any Libyan (not Libian) civiilians, let alone slaughtered any, you are doubly hard to understand -W]

Good one. The trans. is directed to those not inhabiting Norfolk / Suffolk / Cambs. If only I could judge sea ice extent with such accuracy, being more of an eyeball / dartboard person in that domain.

Them hekilopters are French although it's difficult to tell one post colonial hekilopter from another

[Searching images for the kopters I found http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/libya/85…, which, if you drop the jingoism, has much of interest to say. Presumably addressing its core readership, the Torygraph is clearly very uneasy about any British ground forces going in, and doesn't even really like the kopters. Meanwhile we are (very sensibly, I'd say) doing our best to persuade the TNC to plan for the future and the transition of power that will (hopefully) come. Perhaps we actually have learnt something from Iraq? -W]

Ely Cathedral?

Apaches were designed and originally intended to take on the massed ranks of heaviliy armoured evil commie tanks that were due to swarm over the plains of europe and kill us all, for it is known that the commies hated us for our freedoms.

They make a real mess of armoured vehicles let alone human beings. Have a look at the collateral murder video to see what they will do to ordinary people. Lets hope no Libyan makes the mistake of carrying a camera tripod or long range lens.

[Ah, the Iraq one. Yes, that was bad. Fortunately we don't employ cowboys like the US does -W]

Never mind where you are.
Now you have been revealed as the evil Mekon the world can start to thwart your plans.
