A Mixed Bag

This post is going to be in three parts. First of all some links to other blog posts and online bits that have particularly impressed me today, then a bit about today at work and finally some other bits.

LINKS

These links are to the pick of the things I have encountered online today…

http://sudburyspy.com/news/item/236-living-the-life-of-riley-councillor-maintains-refusal-to-stand-down

https://www.change.org/p/suffolk-county-councillor-brian-riley-let-the-people-of-hadleigh-decide-whether-they-want-an-elected-representative-who-lives-3900-miles-away-resign-and-let-us-have-a-by-election These first two both deal with the same story, but as someone who went through the Incinerator battle in King’s Lynn and who therefore has very low tolerance for arrogant and out of touch Tory councillors I felt it worth giving both links!

http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2015/03/19/do-you-know-the-horrifying-facts-about-your-own-mp/ This and the next but one link are related – the latter is a specific example of following up the former.

http://deeclarknz.com/2015/03/14/walls-do-not-have-to-separate-us/ A very moving blog post.

TODAY AT WORK

Although much of today was taken up with heavy lifting I did get to create a couple of pieces of PR material which I hope to be able to use on Tuesday, the second of which involved some imaging (I used an already created image in the first – it must be pretty good since it already has a confirmed bid of £500 on it)

The first piece was a press release about James and Sons being at an antiques and collectables fair at Newmarket Racecourse…

The latter has some serious history – it was once the personal property of no less an individual than Sir Henry Rider Haggard (of King Solomon’s Mines fame). A full gallery follows…

The full poster (as I intend it) - top and bottom the whole stick, around the sides details from various parts of the stick and in the centre the mask.

?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ??????????I have a few non-work related pics to share as well, including an opportunistic pair of eclipse shots. It was vey overcast in Norfolk today, but between getting off the bus at Oak Street and arriving at James and Sons I did get one half decent shot which I turned into two pictures…

The original holder that these Liebig cards came in split, so I mounted them on card instead (it being the pics I am interested in)

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.
