As well as my title piece I have some photos which connect to that and some cracking links to share with you. Read, enjoy and please share…
OPERATION CATCH UP
The combination of two auctions happening in the space of four days and a degree of failure on the organsiation front has made things somewhat hectic of late. However, after a full day imaging for our June auction today, I believe that we will be able to give our online viewers a week to look at the items that will be going under the hammer, which did not look likely at one point. Today’s imaging has been very varied, including some lovely Hornby toys (Hornby for the uninitiated are THE name when it comes to railway themed toys and models). There were also some decent stamp lots and some interesting militaria. To end this section here are some pictorial highlights…
Here as promised are those links, starting with a fistful on the subject of…
My first three links are all related to the same organisation:
3)Atheist Republic’s brief explanation of atheism.
Patheos, so often a source of good material have done it again, this time with a piece about Christian extremist opposition to higher education.
A CHANCE TO BRING A VILE CRIMINAL TO JUSTICE
A single link, being given a subsection to itself. This is a petition being run by Avaaz to ensure that the South African government does the right thing and takes the opportunity to arrest and incarcerate former Sudanese president Omar Al-Bashir
SCIENCE AND MUSIC
An unusual juxtaposition, but both my science related pieces are concerned with planets, and there is a very well known piece of music called The Planets, so I considered it acceptable on this occasion. The music related link is to a piece by Charlotte Hoather about Madama Butterfly, in a production of which she will soon be appearing. My two planets themed pieces both come from Cosmos Up:
1)Juxtaposition of Jupiter and Venus
2)A possible preponderance of Neptune sized planets in our galaxy.
A FINAL SELECTION
Three more links, starting with this from Jayne Linney.
