As Seen On…

Bored Panda… Flickr Screenshots and Photos… The Age… and the Goodreads Quote of the Day (which I get a day late, for some unknown reason!) Wherever and whenever I see something “interesting”, novel, or “rant worthy”, you’ll probably see it too – in here… 😉


AS SEEN at Stillwater -August 14th, 2015

Stillwater – after we picked up the keys! Naked and bare at the moment – more photos when there’s something other than bare walls to see 🙂


AS SEEN ON Goodreads Quote of the Day – July 24th, 2015

“To say goodbye is to die a little.” ― Raymond Chandler, The Long Goodbye


AS SEEN ON Bored Panda – July 18th, 2015

When we played World of Warcraft, many years ago, there was an zone (area) called “Northrend” that we adventured in. Part of that zone was called “Howling Fjord” and this Bored Panda set of photos are really and truly the “real life” version of the places depicted in “Howling Fjord” – especially the first one!  Enjoy! 🙂


 

AS SEEN ON Goodreads Quote of the Day – July 14th, 2015

“A tiger doesn’t proclaim his tigritude, he pounces”

― Wole Soyinka. This Nigerian playwright and poet was imprisoned for 22 months during the Nigerian Civil War. His captors refused to provide him pen and paper, but Soyinka somehow managed to write poems, essays, and letters anyway.

 


 

AS SEEN ON Flickr – July 06th, 2015

I downloaded a new Windowblind yesterday (see blog post “Winter’s log, earthdate 201507.05” (I think – it might have been the one before! Sorry!)) which is a lovely soft, minty green – I’ve made a desktop wallpapery-thingy to go with it – here it is – what do you think?

I demand that Julian grow a beard and a mustache so that he can look like these guys! They look fan-bloody-tastic! 🙂

Photos of some of the rooms at our new home in Vermont South, plus the floor plan…


 

AS SEEN ON THE GUARDIAN – JUNE 19TH, 2015

An absolutely fascinating article about image recognition neural networks “recognising” objects that aren’t actually present, in other images (including straight out “noise”) The original article that this article was adapted from is here.


As Seen On Flickr – June 17th, 2015

Here are the results of the April 2015 Photo Shoot – photos of Julian and myself, which turned out a lot better than I expected they would!


 

As Seen On imgur – June 14th, 2015

Found in (presumably recently discovered?) Roman catacombs, this truly must be one of the most fantastic finds of the millennium!


As Seen On Bored Panda – June 13th, 2015

Truly it is written: “What has been seen cannot be unseen!” – Did we really find these thingsattractive?! These things have to be seen to be believed (though you may have nightmares for the rest of your life! 😉 )


 

As Seen On My Little Cat Desk Calendar – June 12th, 2015

“God made the cat in order that man might have the pleasure of caressing the lion.”

“I wonder how many people I’ve looked at all my life and never seen.”
― John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent


As Seen On Bored Panda – May 22nd, 2015

For anyone who likes, or is interested in birds – especially pigeons 🙂 What a talented artist this person is  – though I think the artwork would have looked better without what appear to be… er… “bird droppings” all over the place. Still, they’re brilliant pieces of art! This one’s for you, Josh! 🙂


 As Seen On Bored Panda – May 18th, 2015

These photos are just amazing! Some of them must have taken split-second timing, as some of the outcomes, though very natural, would have been… ummm… delicious? 😉
