Midweek Mishmash

As it’s title says, this post is a mixture of all sorts of things – enjoy!

INTRODUCTION

I have a wide range of stuff for you, including pictures and links.

GREYFRIARS

In the second of my series of posts about “Buildings of King’s Lynn”, I put up some pictures of Greyfriars Tower. Tucked away in one corner of the grounds is a scale model of the friary as it would have been back in the 14th century…

LINKS

I have a plethora of links for you today. I start with a subsection dealing with…

PETITIONS

Two petitions today:

On the Government’s own petitions website, is this call to protect academic freedom. The government have new legislation in the pipeline to include an ‘anti-lobbying’ clause in all government grants, and this petition seeks to exempt academic research from this law.

My second petition is on a matter of local interest. A new factory farm is planned for Sedgeford, Norfolk and if you find the notion as repellent as I do please click here to sign and share the petition against it.

AN APPROPRIATE STAND ALONE LINK

Appropriate because the MP about whom this piece was written, the dishonourable Julian Lewis, is in a club of one as a British MP who will not accept communication by email.

A TRIO FROM COSMOS UP

The website cosmos up has been in fine form recently, and here (two of them accompanied by images) are three crackers they have produced in less than two full days…

First up, details of a method by which we could get to Mars in three days.
Photon Power

Second, with no images, this about the brightest and darkest objects in our universe.

Thirdly, is this examination of the question of what life would be like on a donut shaped planet.

Donut Planet

This picture shows the orbital path of a donut planet’s moon should it have one.

A NEW POST ON WWW.LONDONTU.BE

A reminder of the existence of my London Transport themed website. Today’s new post focusses on London Bridge,¬†partially inspired by this picture…

REMINDER: POSITIVE AUTISM AWARENESS CONFERENCE 

This will be taking place on April 15th at the Dukes Head Hotel, Tiesday Market Place, King’s Lynn, starting at 9:30. It has proved very popular – my latest information is that just 13 tickets are yet to be bought.

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.
