I have to hand it to the German team, they are getting stronger, and their young subs look like a force to be reckoned with in the future, maybe even this world cup…..and just think if England can see off Portugal and Brazil (stranger things have happened) then it could be E Vs G in the final.
The Argentines seemed to under-estimate the Gs and over-estimate their own abilities. That seems to have been their downfall as far as I can see.
Time to avenge the loss to Portugal two years ago…….. we can do it!!
I had a spectacularly visual episode of migraine a few months ago. I was tripped out for 8 days continuously, florid hallucinations, toward the end my sanity was severely tested. I had flashbacks for a further 5 weeks.
It has compelled me to try my hand at painting. Here is a website which describes this neurological event, and the artwork ‘inspired’ by it,
Migraine Art Website
This is it
Too many parallels, time to perpendiculate
My son bought a new guitar Amp at the weekend, though I think I might have to buy it from him as he’s skint.
Line6 spiderII 30. Oooooo, its certainly knows how to project its voice!!
I do wonder though whether a purely analog amp would have been easier to repair in the event of meltdown… .. we’ll see.
A mackeral sky looks a possibility tonight, there are a few lower lying lumpers about, not sure on their real names, but high up there is that broken sky which with luck will scorch red as the sun dips……. fingers crossed… camera at the ready.
Oh well, it didnt happen, aint that just the way…… the lumpers gathered together to blot out the mackeral….well sort of…..
I had this idea that maybe I could learn to paint with watercolour. So my partner bought me a few watercolour paints, brushes and paper.
Whoa! the paper is nice. Quite thick but has a wonderful texture to it. Apparently it’s ideal for beginners, NOT it’s called. I didn’t realise though that paper under a certain weight has to be pre-stretched, otherwise when it is painted on, or given a good colour wash, when it dries it will ‘cockle’. The paper I have is just a little too light and therefore needs pre-stretching, ie get it thoroughly wet and then peg it or staple it out. As it dries it shrinks and the paper stretches, and when then painted on will not ‘cockle’ on drying.
So I’ve had the paints 2 weeks and have only tried one painting. I need to stretch several pieces so that I can experiment. Is there such a thing as a paper stretching frame I wonder?
This is the best afternoon for a few days, there is such a good breeze blowing, I can almost smell the sea. It is also quite bright and the sky is opening up….
I cant work in the garden so easily these days, so we have been fixing some half baskets to the walls. Small hanging gerdens. Perenials are going in to the borders.
As I was trawling through the blog search, I came across this link in someones profile……not sure who it was now….. en ee whey … here ’tis
DirectGov Page on Health Management or something like that
