The new Lego store opened in Glasgow a few weeks ago. It is very expensive. They have this wall of containers where you grab bricks and place them in cartons for purchase. It looked amazing. I could not resist this shot inside one of the containers. These appear to be some kind of wheels for using when building cars and such like.
Taken at home in the summer of 2012 when the weather was awful, I thought this was a rather interesting take on the standard “broken egg” shot as the shell is covered in the egg white which gives it the ridged look.
Bat Boy – Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012 (Durham University Light Opera Group production)
Bat Boy: The Musical is an American musical with a book by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming and music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe, based on a June 23, 1992 Weekly World News story about a half-boy, half-bat, dubbed “Bat Boy”, who grew up living in a cave.
Bat Boy is about a boy named Edgar who is half bat, half boy. The explanation is wildly far-fetched, but then the whole musical is. The whole town hates Edgar; they think he has been killing their cows and he seriously injured a girl when he was first found. He becomes eloquent and educated and eventually wins the town on his side, but bubbling beneath it all, Edgar’s adopted father nurses the resentment that his wife loves Edgar more than him.
Bat Boy premiered at Actors Gang Theatre in 1997 and has since been produced off-Broadway, in London’s West End, at the Edinburgh Festival and in scores of productions throughout the world.

Taken in a Pizza Express restaurant, Blackpool, England in February 2013, the Kiss Me Quick phrase is synonymous with the British seaside culture and in particular, Blackpool, where the hat emblazoned with the same phrase is sold to hundreds of people each year.
Blackpool is perhaps the most famous of the British seaside resorts and, despite the injection of millions to renovate the seafront, it remains an unsightly place to many, one which is never to be visited, and is the domain of stag and hen parties, cheap holidays and cold weather. It is however a good source of entertainment for young families who perhaps want a traditional beachside British holiday.
