Under My Umbrella, Broadgate Circus




Under My Umbrella, Broadgate Circus





Update: I'm re-posting this as it's been used on a few recent blogs and kind people are coming past to see it, way back in the order of things. It also brings a bit of colour to the front of my photostream, amidst a lot of recent black and whites. I just noticed that this was possible, so thought I would have a test run to see how it was done. Hope that doesn't offend anyone!

Broadgate Circus is a private office estate in The City of London, adjacent to Liverpool Street station. Resolved to take some photos despite the rain, I found a sheltered corner of Broadgate with a good view of City commuters hurrying home from their offices in the grey London weather. The wet granite gave a nice dark mirror, with the turquoise glass of Gaucho and glowing gold of other office lights a not entirely uninteresting backdrop to the scene. The airvents here provide a workable improvised tripod too.

I managed to get around 25-30 shots away before private security arrived on the scene to impose their intolerance upon me, and I was ejected with stern authority, and a hand on my shoulder, though with memory cards unmolested. For people taking photos at Broadgate Circus in future, it would be worth noting. The guards were professional, but clearly bored and thus more intimidating than they need have been.

With the first half of the images no more than sighting shots of limited use, only this one stood out from those remaining, but I'm very happy with it. There's a nice symmetry, I think, especially between the red umbrella, blurred to an arrow pointing sharply down to the flowers. This one was cropped to centre the lady; more at home as a focal point than drifting on the top/right third point as she was.

It has been a grey day with some bad news and thick rain, so it's nice to share a colourful, meditative image at the end of it. Hope people approve. Thanks for all the nice comments so far.

DSC 5225 ky security guard





The security guard at the Kyamulinga School in rural Uganda. I was told that the knowledge of his presence, a guy lurking around in the dark with a bow and arrow, was enough to encourage local malcreants to stay away from the school supplies. Interestingly, this man owns a pet turtle which he is very proud of. He showed it to me. The guard's salary is paid by Boulder based non-profit One School at a Time. Because schools are fundamentally unsecured (no looks or windows, etc.), precious school supplies are often the target of thieves.

The Kyamulinga school partnered with Boulder-based
One School at a Time which helped improve the school's infrastructure, including installation of a water system. Other photos of Ky are featured in my Blurb book . Sales of the book help support One School.

Arrows of the Night: Ahmad Chalabi's Long Journey to Triumph in Iraq






In 1958, Ahmad Chalabi’s wealthy Shiite family was exiled from Iraq after a revolution that ultimately put Saddam Hussein in power. The young Chalabi devoted his life to restoring his family to prominence. His first coup attempt was in 1963 at age nineteen, while on a school break from MIT. His next was aided by Iranian intelligence. But as the years passed and Saddam stayed in power, Chalabi made an audacious decision: he needed the support of both Iran and its powerful archenemy, the United States.

Drawing on unparalleled access to Chalabi, Bonin traces the exile’s ingenious efforts to stoke a desire for Iraqi regime change in the U.S. He narrates Chalabi’s ill-fated engage­ment with the CIA and his later focus on neoconservative policy makers who rose to power under George W. Bush. As a result, from day two of the Bush presidency, the push for a new Iraq was on, with the intent to install Ahmad Chalabi as overseer of U.S. interests in the Middle East. The outcome was perhaps the biggest foreign policy disaster in our history and a triumphant end to Chalabi’s forty-five-year quest.

Today, as we prepare to withdraw our troops from Iraq, Arrows of the Night is full of shocking revelations about how we got there, including the true story of Chalabi’s relation­ship with Iran. This page-turner, with its definitive account of the war, irrevocably alters a story we thought we knew.

The "Shirley Court" Art Deco Flats - Travancore




The





After the Great War (1914 - 1918), higher costs of living and the "servant problem" made living in the grand mansions and villas built in the Victorian and Edwardian eras a far less practical and attractive option for both those looking for new housing, and those who lived in big houses. It was around this time, in answer to these problems, that flats and apartments began to replace some larger houses, and became fashionable to live in.

"Shirley Court" is a stylish Art Deco complex of flats, featuring one dwelling above the other with interconnecting staircases, and they would have suited those of comfortable means who could afford to live in Trvancore (the suburb in which these flats are located), and dispense with the difficulties of keeping a large retinue of staff.

Built in 1939 by Melbourne architect James Wardrop (1891 - 1975), this cottage style block with its roof in a mixture of tiles in different shades, brick walls with picked out sections of red and clinker bricks, stylised chimneys and round balconies follow the less cluttered lines of Metroland Art Deco architecture that came out of England after the war. "Shirley Court" has a street frontage four times the size of what is seen in the photograph.

Travancore is a bijou suburb named after a beautiful Victorian mansion erected in 1863. The mansion's grounds were subdivided in the late 1890s to form the new suburb, which consists only of only about five streets. With commanding views of Royal Park, the area was much sought after by aspiring middle and upper middle-class citizens.

James Wardrop also designed Alkira House and the United Kingdom Hotel in 1937.











A Metroland Art Deco Villa in Red and Brown Bricks - Coonans Hill




A Metroland Art Deco Villa in Red and Brown Bricks - Coonans Hill





Built in the late 1920s, this pretty stylised red and brown brick Art Deco villa can be found in the Melbourne suburb of Coonans Hill.

This cottage style with its low slung tile roof in a mixture of shades, picked out feature clinker bricks and rounded porch were very popular amongst the newly moneyed middle-class who could finally afford to buy their own homes. Even the light to the left of the front door is very Art Deco in its design. Comfortable and cottage like in the Metroland style of interwar Art Deco architecture so popular in Australia during the late 1920s, this house and many others like it represented stability and respectability, without being showy.

This house has a neat garden which appears once to have featured an avenue of substantially sized trees, which were probably planted as saplings when the willa was first built. The current owners obviously wanted more light and felled them, but have created a new avenue of topiaried lilly pilly trees and standard roses. With a a neat lawn to finish it off, the garden is suitably cottage-like and suits the house.

Planning on having a "mock" window with the same window treatment as the real window. This gets around what to put over the bed that could fall on me in an earthquake... = ) And it will kind of feel like a sheer curtain canopy w/o sectioning off the room like a real canopy would. Not sure if the pink bubble lamps will work in here. And would like to put the small candle sconces in here somehow. Maybe keep the floor lamp for function and put the candle sconces for decor...

Occidental Hotel at 304 N.Main Street; Wichita, KS




Occidental Hotel at 304 N.Main Street; Wichita, KS





Drawing of the Occidental Hotel at 304 North Main Street in Wichita, KS. This image appeared in the 1887 Journal of Commerce and depicts the Hotel as a hub of social activity in Wichita. This structure was started in 1873, completed in 1874 and cost $31,000 to build. Although William Henry Sternberg did not originally erect this hotel, over the years he was contracted to do renovations, remodels and an even an expansion to the hotel.

This very elegant hotel opened to the public on January 16th, 1874 and is still standing in 2011. It is listed on three historic registers. A three-story structure, it was built with all the bells and whistles including a messaging system to guest rooms, a first-class dining room with large hand-painted frescoes on the walls and white linens covering the tables w/ crystal stemware, silver eating utensils balanced delicately over top the dinner plate and white linen napkins. Early owners of this hotel used colored staff to serve and cook in the restaurant (sometimes called the "colored brigade") which was a source of employment for blacks in early Wichita. Later owners of the hotel opted for attractive young white women as wait staff. In addition to the first-class dining room, the hotel also had regular shows / entertainment and balls which were open to the public for about $5.00/couple in 1874. There was a reading room, baggage room, a telegraph office, a gift shop, a upscale saloon outfitted with an elegant walnut bar brought in from Kansas City, a post office, a barber salon and even a hydraulic elevator. Later (in the 1880s) the hotel was retrofited with radiators, steam heat and new arc lights. Guest rooms and hallways were carpeted w/ patterned wall-to-wall carpet and it was a very popular place. Rooms at the hotel were often sold out w/ standing room only for shows and entertainment. In 1877, the hotel purchased and had moved in a grand piano which cost $1,400 and at the time it was reported to be, "the finest musical instrument ever brought to the City". Indeed the Occidental Hotel was not only one of the finest hotels in Kansas but it was the social hub of early Wichita. When the large 4th Ward School building (built by W.H. Sternberg) burned down on New Years Eve in 1880, classes were temporarily re-located to the first floor of the Occidental.

In part because of the crash of the real estate boom in the late 1880s and in part because the hub of downtown Wichita was moving further east and south, the Occidental was now in a somewhat out-of-the-way location, and it began to fall on hard times... In late 1877, the hotel was unable to come up with $700 in taxes and it was sold at tax auction to an out-of-state banker. The Occidental also had a hard time competing with newer hotels such as the Carey Hotel (in 1877, it was built 15 years after the Occidental). Other newer, but more mid-range hotels like the Metropole and Manhattan Hotels wooed customers away. The Carey Hotel was certainly the premier hotel in 1887 charging $2.50/night for a room. The Metropole and Manhattan were charging $2.00 and the now not so conviently located Occidental was $1.50/night. In 2010, the Carey and Occidental buildings remain standing. The Metropole and Manhattan have been razed. After the real estate crash of the 1880s, the Occidental continued to strle. It was frequently bought and sold and went through several repossessions. But it's stood the test of time including floods of the Arkansas River where water ran 18 inches deep through the first floor of the hotel in 1889. Finally in 1899, the hotel was sold yet again and the "Occidental Hotel" was officially over. It was now the "Baltimore Hotel".

The Occidental Hotel was not originally erected by William Henry Sternberg, but in 1880, the entire hotel underwent an extensive 9-month remodel including an expansion of the very popular dining room and Sternberg was the contractor for this remodel and expansion which cost $4,000. During this 1880 expansion the hotel was, "furnished throughout with new rich furniture, marble-topped dresser stands, with bedsteads and chairs to match, costing when ready to open to the public, about $10,000". Later in 1882 and 1885, 20 additional guest rooms, water lines, bathrooms, windows and four more commercial offices (to the first floor) were added and Sternberg was one of the contractors for this work as well. It was during the 1882 renovation, that the exterior brick (itself a reddish color) was painted over in a deep brick red. Still other renovations were made to the Occidental over the years and Sternberg was noted as having done and/or having participated as one of the contractors in those.

The Occidental Hotel has seen all the great booms and crashes of Wichita. It was erected just four years after Wichita was incorporated. Population was growing rapidly and people lived the high-life in the Occidental. Over th











The Cathay




The Cathay





Are you from OUG? No? I have a sister there – Rebecca.

Everytime he saw me – he would repeat the same question. Where are you from? KL? The question will then be followed with the same line. I think I answered the sweet old man at least 6 times, yet somehow he didn’t make my eyes roll. Probably because he asked with such sincerity I could only blame his short memory to the repeated questions.

I was staying at the 103 year old Cathay Hotel on Leith Street in Penang. The old man was one of the few old men looking after the hotel. The Cathay hotel was an old colonial mansion that stands right in front of the more famous Cheong Fatt zhe mansion or better known as the blue mansion.

When I began looking for a place to stay in Penang, there were a few criterias to consider. Affordable, in Georgetown, clean and safe. Somehow the price and the place didn’t seem to match. Always a sucker for old mansions, I just had to check the place out. So I called them to check on the details and make my booking. Even after putting down the phone, I wasn’t so sure I was getting what I had been told. The little rooms in the restored mansion turned hotels in the area were going for triple the price they had quoted me.

I decided to check the rooms upon arrival before sealing my stay, after all I could always find another place to stay on the other more popular backpackers lane – Chulia Street.

Let me tell you a little secret, I’ve only taken the bus to an outstation location in Malaysia thrice. All three times, I was traveling with someone from that location and they handled the tickets and everything. This trip was my first trip alone on a bus to another state and I was wondering how would I figure out which bus company to travel with.

The rain did the deciding for me. it began raining the second I got into my local bus heading towards KL. I got down from the bus 45 minutes later into a semi heavy downpour and wrapped myself in a shawl and made my way towards Pudu bus station. I discover that KL pavements are meant for walking in the rain, there goes my romantic ideas of walking hand in hand in the rain. I’m sure no such dreams included slipping and holding on to dear life to the nearest pole.

As I reached the covered sidewalk towards Pudu, a man was bellowing – Penang! Butterworth! Penang! Butterworth! Penang! Butterworth!

Actually it sounded like JB at first but somehow my please-do-not-fall-look looked like I needed a bus to Penang as the guy stopped me and asked me if I wanted a seat to Penang. After checking the price and contemplating to continue walking, a thunder sounded from the skies and with that I whipped out my purse and handed him the money. Thankfully the bus looked good on the inside, and what do you know it was pretty comfortable too.

I settled into my chair and was already freezing from getting wet in the rain. Smsed my friend to tell her I was on my way to Penang and it was raining cats and dogs in KL.

“It’s the same over here” came back her reply.

Looks like someone was waiting for my arrival. I prefer the rain anyday, who wouldn’t want to walk in cold weather on cold roads, at least I wouldn’t die of dehydration. Rain all you want darling, I;m on a walking tour – were my thoughts before I snled into the chair.

Now how would a story written by me not have its buts?

Somewhere between the last tollgate on the highway towards Butterworth, the bus suddenly stops. As I was busy chatting on the phone, I gave no notice to the words the drivers assistant was mumbling. A few passengers seem to be getting down and though I was puzzled, I ignored it. A minute later I hear something about Penang and curious I asked the guy what the fuss was all about.

Sesiapa yang pergi Penang kena tukar basla cik adik!
The people heading to Penang have to change busses love!

I quickly cut the call and stuffed the book I had been reading into my bag and hurried out totally bewildered by the situation. Later I find out it’s a common practice by busses to shift their mainland passengers with the island passengers. How would I know?

Luckily the other bus was as comfortable but I was in for another surprise. I had assumed the bus will stop at Komtar, Georgetown. It seems Google lied. Buses now stop at the Nibong terminal. Now Nibong is on the other side of the town and the moment I got down, taxi drivers began warring their taxis at the most ridiculous prices. I told one guy I’d rather walk to Georgetown than pay RM 25.

City buses don’t seem to ply the route or they were having a siesta at 4 pm. I walked futher down the road to catch another taxi. The first one demanded another exorbitant price and when I asked him if he’ll use the meter he laughed at me. So I told him to take his laugh with him in different words.

I finally got a cab for RM 12. My friends were surprised to find out I had haggled.

Just off Penang road, Leith street was one of the few places I had never been on the island but it probably ha

Berry Nice Winterberry - Ilex - Deer Resistant



(I. verticillata 'Spriber') The dark red berry display is so vivid, the original plant was selected by sight at a distance of 1/4 mile. It'll make you stop and take notice. Good clean foliage drops early in the fall so you can enjoy its spectacular show. This lovely native is well adapted to wet soils, so it's a perfect choice for near a pond or stream. The fruit appears in autumn and remains until early spring when the returning birds feast on the showy fruit. Berry Nice® winterberry makes a great plant for cut arrangements in the autumn when the colorful berries are present. The fruit will dry but remains very attractive. Planting a male selection in near proximity greatly improves the fruiting of Winterberry.

Zatoichi the Blind Swordsman, Vol. 2 - The Tale of Zatoichi Continues






Non-stop action, a deadly love triangle, and a mysterious one-armed samurai round out the second installment in the legendary Zatoichi series. When Zatoichi discovers the lord who has hired him suffers from a madness that -- if made public -- would bring ruin to his empire and the livelihood of the samurai warriors he employs, the blind masseur becomes a wanted man for the secret he now possesses. Attacked at every turn by the crazed lord’s samurais and hired yakuza thugs, Zatoichi manages to escape relatively unscathed. But in a final duel, masseur Ichi must face his old foe, the infamous one-armed samurai (played by Tomisaburo Wakayama, the brother of star Shintaro Katsu).

The wild success of The Tale of Zatoichi demanded a sequel and star Shintaro Katsu was only too happy to reprise his role as the traveling masseur and blind swordsman. Star Katsu and director Kazuo Mori flesh out the enigmatic Ichi in this outing, creating a more haunted and less conniving character who prefers to keep his identity shrouded and his sword sheathed. Nonetheless the peace-loving swordsman is reluctantly and repeatedly forced to fight when he's attacked by a government goon squad, a gang of hoodlums, and an angry one-armed swordsman whose interest in Ichi is purely personal. This action-packed entry, which ultimately brings our hero back to the site of his previous film for the furious climax, practically revels in the concentrated bursts of Ichi's lightning attack.
The newly restored DVD features a small stills gallery, a fold-out insert with an essay by Tatsu Aoki (a self described "Ichi Freak"), and four collector cards. --Sean Axmaker

The 2009 Report on Sheet Metal Roof Ventilators and Louvers and Dampers for Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning: World Market Segmentation by City


The 2009 Report on Sheet Metal Roof Ventilators and Louvers and Dampers for Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning: World Market Segmentation by City



This report was created for global strategic planners who cannot be content with traditional methods of segmenting world markets. With the advent of a "borderless world", cities become a more important criteria in prioritizing markets, as opposed to regions, continents, or countries. This report covers the top 2000 cities in over 200 countries. It does so by reporting the estimated market size (in terms of latent demand) for each major city of the world. It then ranks these cities and reports them in terms of their size as a percent of the country where they are located, their geographic region (e.g. Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, North America, Latin America), and the total world market.

In performing various economic analyses for its clients, I have been occasionally asked to investigate the market potential for various products and services across cities. The purpose of the studies is to understand the density of demand within a country and the extent to which a city might be used as a point of distribution within its region. From an economic perspective, however, a city does not represent a population within rigid geographical boundaries. To an economist or strategic planner, a city represents an area of dominant influence over markets in adjacent areas. This influence varies from one industry to another, but also from one period of time to another.

In what follows, I summarize the economic potential for the world's major cities for "sheet metal roof ventilators and louvers and dampers for heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning" for the year 2009. The goal of this report is to report my findings on the real economic potential, or what an economist calls the latent demand, represented by a city when defined as an area of dominant influence. The reader needs to realize that latent demand may or may not represent real sales.

Jamalia. Wide horizontal portrait. Model: Jamalia. Awesome girl - bone structure, eyes and her chick and lips -crazy beautiful model. And she is a realy smart person. A lot of photographer told me that models not suppouse to be smart - they suppose to looks great - just it. I do not agree with this statement - coz even in the final photo viewer can see this - even by looking in the eyes of model . When I saw an "American Next Top model", for example, I steel feel like this is a show of brain damaged people (with all my respect to people who have a real brain damage) - but Im speking about behavior of some potential candidates on "top model" title in this show. But I think if model pretty AND smart - its a real gift for photographer. Its a big pleasure to work with model's like Jamalia.

hastings poster canopy bed - Inferno




Inferno


Inferno



From one of our finest military historians, a monumental work that shows us at once the truly global reach of World War II and its deeply personal consequences.

World War II involved tens of millions of soldiers and cost sixty million lives—an average of twenty-seven thousand a day. For thirty-five years, Max Hastings has researched and written about different aspects of the war. Now, for the first time, he gives us a magnificent, single-volume history of the entire war.

Through his strikingly detailed stories of everyday people—of soldiers, sailors and airmen; British housewives and Indian peasants; SS killers and the citizens of Leningrad, some of whom resorted to cannibalism during the two-year siege; Japanese suicide pilots and American carrier crews—Hastings provides a singularly intimate portrait of the world at war. He simultaneously traces the major developments—Hitler’s refusal to retreat from the Soviet Union until it was too late; Stalin’s ruthlessness in using his greater population to wear down the German army; Churchill’s leadership in the dark days of 1940 and 1941; Roosevelt’s steady hand before and after the United States entered the war—and puts them in real human context.

Hastings also illuminates some of the darker and less explored regions under the war’s penumbra, including the conflict between the Soviet Union and Finland, during which the Finns fiercely and surprisingly resisted Stalin’s invading Red Army; and the Bengal famine in 1943 and 1944, when at least one million people died in what turned out to be, in Nehru’s words, “the final epitaph of British rule” in India.

Remarkably informed and wide-ranging, Inferno is both elegantly written and cogently argued. Above all, it is a new and essential understanding of one of the greatest and bloodiest events of the twentieth century.

Hastings Netting Sheds




Hastings Netting Sheds





Today Hastings has a population of something over 80,000 and depends heavily on tourism to earn its living. There is still a fishing fleet based at The Stade in the Old Town, though severely hampered now by restrictions imposed from Europe. There is a remarkable amount of creative talent in the town: artists, writers and musicians seem to be particularly attracted here. Current Hastings residents include the jazz saxophone legend Trevor Watts, folk fiddlers Peter Knight (of "Steeleye Span") and Barry Dransfield; the award-winning science fiction writer Christopher Priest, and American-born novelist Leigh Kennedy. If rare musical instruments are your thing, have a look at the small 18th century John Snetzler organ, rebuilt in 1837, which found its way from Derby via Banbury and Lewes to Hastings, and is now sitting unobtrusively in the Unitarian Chapel in South Terrace (just a few doors along from the Quaker Meeting House).

Hastings never quite achieved the prosperity of resorts like Bournemouth or Brighton, but it has a comfortable, "lived in" feel and a lot to recommend it which is not perhaps obvious to the casual visitor. The ruins of the Norman castle on the West Hill are a major attraction as are St. Clement's caves nearby, while below on the seafront is Pelham Crescent and its centrepiece St. Mary-in-the-Castle, magnificently restored with its Georgian columns and soaring dome. For those who enjoy walking in the countryside, the unspoiled Country Park stretches from the East Hill up and down the glens and over the "fire hills" to Fairlight - and further if you can manage it!

The Old Town, nestling between the East and West Hills, is well worth exploring: as well as the picturesque houses and shops, the streets are riddled with a surprising network of little alleyways (or "twittens" as we call them in Hastings!) The beach is home to the largest shore-based fishing fleet in England, and to the eye-catching tall wooden huts where the fishermen dry their nets.

Winston's War: Churchill, 1940-1945 (Vintage)






Winston’s War is a vivid and incisive portrait of Winston Churchill during wartime. Here are the glories and triumphs, the contradictions and blunders of the man who, through sheer force of will, kept Britain fighting in 1940. But as the tide of the war turned, historian Max Hastings shows how Churchill was often disappointed by the failure of the British Army to match his hopes on the battlefield, and by the difficulties of sustaining the wartime alliance not only with the Soviet Union, but also with the United States. With surprises on almost every page, Winston’s War is a riveting profile of one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century.

Amazon Best Books of the Month, May 2010 Winston's War is a brilliant tribute to the leadership of Winston Churchill during the bleakest hours of World War II. Employing an oratory genius that awed proponents and critics alike, the British Prime Minister fortified national pride and resolve by remaining fiercely defiant in the face of a powerful Axis war machine. Yet historian Max Hastings provides more than just a look at the inner workings of one man, as he extends beyond the words of the dynamic leader to portray an honest account of the emotions that defined Great Britain during the 1940's. Contrary to what his gilded legacy may lead future generations to believe, Churchill did not cement his place in history by winning unanimous public support. Rather, he achieved his iconic status by empowering "millions to look beyond the havoc of the battlefield...and perceive a higher purpose in their strles and sacrifices." --Dave Callanan
Lynne Olson Reviews Winston's War

Lynne Olson, a former Moscow correspondent for the Associated Press and White House correspondent for the Baltimore Sun, is the author of Citizens of London, Troublesome Young Men, Freedom’s Daughters and co-author, with her husband, Stanley Cloud, of A Question of Honor and The Murrow Boys. She lives in Washington, D.C.

British historian Max Hastings has entered a very crowded field with Winston’s War, his new book about Winston Churchill’s direction of the British effort in World War II. Hastings, the author of the acclaimed military histories Armageddon and Retribution, readily acknowledges the problem, noting that no human being has been written about more than Churchill. Yet he accomplishes what he has set out to do--provide an insightful, compelling portrait of the political outcast who came to power at the gravest moment in his country’s history and, over the course of a desperate summer, rallied the British to stand alone against Hitler.
Hastings is clear-eyed about Churchill’s not inconsiderable shortcomings as a warlord, including a penchant for rash, ill-thought-out raids and other military operations "more appropriate to a Victorian cavalry subaltern than to the director of a vast industrial war effort." Yet, as he points out, that same capacity for boldness enabled Churchill--one of the few British prime ministers ever to have fought in a war himself--to spur into action not only his demoralized countrymen but also Britain’s sclerotic military establishment, whose fortress mentality was the bane of his wartime existence.
Equally important was Churchill’s assiduous courtship of the American people and their president, Franklin D. Roosevelt. While the prime minister’s relationship with Roosevelt was never as close as Churchill later claimed, he exerted a sizable influence on FDR’s decisionmaking early in the war, including the critical decision to launch a 1942 invasion of North Africa, rather than the premature assault on France that the U.S. military brass had been urging--an attack that almost certainly would have ended in disaster.
In the last two years of the conflict, however, the prime minister’s influence in Washington waned dramatically. To his considerable pain and alarm, Roosevelt paid far more heed to the wishes and demands of Stalin and the Soviets than to Churchill and the British, who now were consigned to junior partnership in the Grand Alliance. Yet Hastings makes a convincing case that Churchill’s still-commanding stature in the United States helped maintain Britain’s status as a key, if diminished, player during the war’s endgame--a time when this exhausted country could easily have been pushed into the shadows as "a backwater, supply center and aircraft carrier for American-led armies in Europe."
Above all, though, Churchill will be remembered for his clarion calls of defiance and hope in the summer of 1940, almost singlehandedly changing the mood of his nation and rousing the British to fight on in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. "Gradually we came under the spell of that wonderful voice and inspiration," one London woman later wrote. "His stature grew larger and larger, until it filled our sky."

Max Hastings on Winston's War

Why another Churchill book? We have been told more about him than any other human being. Most of my own research for this book has been done not in the Churchill papers, gutted by historians, but among military and civilian diaries, newspaper files, British, American and Russian records. What I have tried to do is to portray the story of Churchill at war in the context of his relationships with the British and American peoples, the armed forces, the Russians. All these were more complex than is sometimes acknowledged.
It is easy to identify his strategic errors and misplaced enthusiasms. Yet the outcome justified all. The defining fact of Churchill’s leadership was Britain’s emergence from the war among the victors. No warlord, no commander, in history has failed to make mistakes. It is as easy to catalogue the errors of Alexander the Great, Caesar, Napoleon as those of Churchill. He towers over the war, standing higher than any other single human being at the head of the forces of light. Without him, Britain’s part would have seemed pretty small by VE-Day. Russia and the United States had played the dominant parts. No honourable course of action existed which could have averted his nation’s bankruptcy and exhaustion in 1945, its eclipse from world power.
Churchill did not command the confidence of all the British people all of the time. But his rhetoric empowered millions to look beyond the havoc of the battlefield, the squalor of their circumstances amid privation and bombardment, and to perceive a higher purpose in their strles and sacrifices. This was, of course, of greater importance in 1940-41 than later, when the allies could commit superior masses of men and material to securing victory. But Churchill’s words remain a lasting force in causing the strle against Hitler to be perceived by posterity as ‘the good war’.
He cherished aspirations which often proved greater than his nation was capable of fulfilling, which is one of my central themes. But it is inconsistent to applaud his defiance of reason in insisting that Britain must fight on in June 1940, and denounce the extravagance of his later demands upon its people and armed forces. Service chiefs often deplored his misjudgements and intemperance. Yet his instinct for war was much more highly developed than their own.
History must take Churchill as a whole, as his wartime countrymen were obliged to do, rather than employ a spoke shave to strip away the blemishes created by his lunges into excess and folly, which were real enough. If the governance of nations in peace is best conducted by reasonable men, in war there is a powerful argument for leadership by those sometimes willing to adopt courses beyond the boundaries of reason, as Churchill did in 1940-41. His foremost quality was strength of will. This was so fundamental to his triumph in the early war years, that it seems absurd to sest that he should have become more biddable, merely because in 1943-45 his stubbornness was sometimes deployed in support of misjudged purposes.
As he left Chequers for the last time in July 1945, he wrote in its visitor’s book: ‘FINIS.’ Three weeks later, on 15 August, Japan’s surrender brought an end to the Second World War. Churchill was among the greatest actors upon the stage of affairs the world has ever known. Familiarity with his speeches, conversation and the fabulous anecdotage about his wartime doings, does nothing to diminish our capacity to be moved to awe, tears, laughter by the sustained magnificence of his performance. He has become today a shared British and American legend. If his leadership was imperfect, no other British ruler in history has matched his achievement nor, please God, is ever likely to find himself in circumstances to surpass it.

The brim is sort of ok--would be better if I used something curved (like cowboy hat bills). The hardest part is stitching the top of the hat to the brim so it lays down--it won't lay properly, but the hat is so busy in the photos it doesn't look to bad on him. Think I need to move the "tack" forward though.

My window!





I left work and got to my car and I tried to roll down my window. All I heard was a "bang" and now my window is broken. I had to rush to the service department at 4pm and they were nice enough to cover the repair and pull a loaner out of a hat. (Loaners are normally a month wait) And I got the last replacement window. The service guy said the window is held by plastic clips which if it breaks, you need a new window. So dumb! Re-Tint alone is gonna cost me big $$. :( Anyways... Becuase the dealer is one block from the Lego store, I got to go see what's up.

this pot is just below the base of the window. from my position right now at the dining table, all i can see is the tip of that ear. :-) I made sure to use a pot that was high enough for him to sit and stare in. he always has to check out what we're all doing in here.

Would you like another teaspoonful of Ready-Made ?
This poster is a raving around a postcard of a Marcel Duchamp's famous Ready-Made.
Bon appetit !

I'm very sorry not to translate the content of my poster, but if somebody's watching you, you can pretend you find it funny (because that is what the poster is supposed to be) as if you understood French perfectly well.
Unless... oh no... unless you speak French.

Shade awning frame





This is a frame for a portable shade awning that I'm building. We live in a flat where ALL of the windows point north. In the southern hemisphere summer, that means that the rooms of our house get extremely hot. This awning will cover the bedroom window with shade cloth, to keep the room cooler.

Back Alley Battle




Back Alley Battle





I almost forgot about this one... A clip from this battle.

[2009/08/26 0:49] Solrana Zagato tries to slam harder against the wall, her eyes staring at the ruined eye of the woman. She starts to tighten her grip around the woman's neck, "Glady... Just one question..." She leans in close to the woman, her hair tricklking through the blood, the scent attracting her attention briefly, "Where is the boy? The one you took off the awning?"

[2009/08/26 0:58] Peanut Scientist shrieks as she's bashed against the brick and mortar surface, blood flicking from her lips. Her grip tightened around the wrist, though the rest of her limply hung, not even her tail flicking, "I.... Killed him... He screamed... Like a bitch..." This of course was a lie, River was alive and well. But if she was asking she obviously didn't know he was. Hopefully it would bring about a quicker death, or maybe a slower one, oh who the fuck knew with Sol, really?

[2009/08/26 1:05] Solrana Zagato presses the body up close to wall, her eyes narrowing even more. She couldn't see or hear much else beyond the woman, her voice drifting down to a low hiss. "Then may my master drag you down to the hell you deserve, cold and alone for eternity in the darkness." Her thumbs press hard against her throat, her burn scarred fingers tightening suddenly as if she was going to choke the woman to death or break her neck, not caring which came first, her nails digging into the soft cool skin.

[2009/08/26 1:20] Peanut Scientist gasps for air, although welcoming the inevitable death it was a natural instict to try and gain more oxygen. Arms and legs started to shut down, her power hitting a critical low. With what little voice she had left she whispered, ".... t-thank you... Lucifer..... b-be praised..." Her skin turned paler, if it was even possible. She was just on the brink of death, just needing a nudge to topple over into hell like Sol condemned her to.

[2009/08/26 1:18] Masha Eilde blinks at Chi, then peers up at Brenden, coyote gaze fuzzy. She gasps out, "Sol... non..." more or less while still gazing at Brendan, then takes his help to lever herself up to a stand, her legs pretty mutually agreeing that they worked. She staggers forward, bumping against Brendan, and reaches to grasp at Sol's iron grip.

[2009/08/26 1:27] Solrana Zagato snarls again. "Lucifer.... You are wrong." Her head jerks to the side as Masha's voice breaks in briefly, Chi's words finally registering as well as she glances over her shoulder at the three standing nearby. Where was her companion? Where'd they come from? She hesistates a moment as Masha grabs her arm weakly, "She hurts children." She shakes Masha off for a moment, slamming the head back into the wall with her full strength, "She guts people just walking." She makes to slam the woman again, her grip shifting a bit as her foot slides in the entrail mess on the ground, "She needs to be stopped, not me..." She goes to slam the head again, "Her weapons are tainted. I won't use them." Brendan is an after thought, she feels almost ashamed that he should get exposed to the backstreets like this, but at the same time, he couldn't be help. Innocence never lasted long here.

[2009/08/26 1:34] Masha Eilde blinks at the end of the sword coming down with an air of finality and lets herself get ted away, something like sorrow in her gaze as it finally hits what the woman in black had said. A boy? Did Sol have a son? She shakes her head again, her thoughts a scramble, feet sliding slightly in the gore of the poor unknown man who lay there still. She mutters something in Kreyol as they go.

[2009/08/26 1:37] Peanut Scientist's body cracks against the bricks hard with every slam, head no longer connected to her spine. Her cranium case was split open, blood intermixing with blue and yellow liquids, most likely coolant and oil. None of her vital organs were working any longer, heart having beat its last mere moments ago, everything else following suit. That was it, she was wiped from this wretched earth, no longer able to dessimate the poor little children. The two hundred and fifity pound mecha kitty was now nothing more than a rag doll in Sol's hand.

[2009/08/26 1:44] Solrana Zagato growls as the girl goes limp her grasp, the air getting chillier as the shadows around them deepen. She barely acknowledges that Masha and Brendan left, finally knowing what she should do. She leans forward, her tongue briefly lapping at one of the few strands of untainted blood flowing from her mouth before she just presses the body back against the wall, her injured arm moving out to press the hand against the corner of the wall where the shadows lay deepest. It almost looks like she hooks her fingers there, the air dropping in temperature to where you could almost see her breath. "You're not through yet. Master gets to play with you.











A Queen Anne Style Villa - Travancore




A Queen Anne Style Villa - Travancore





This smart Queen Anne style villa is built on a tree lined street in the Melbourne suburb of Travancore.

Built between Federation (1901) and the Great War (1914), the wattle and daub barge board beneath the eaves of the finial tipped gables is very Arts and Crafts inspired. The wonderful wooden fretwork along the verandah and under the awning of the front window, and the stained glass windows with stylised floral designs in them are obviously more Art Nouveau influenced.

Queen Anne style was most popular around the time of Federation. With complex roofline structures and undulating facades, many Queen Anne houses fell out of fashion at the beginning of the modern era, and were demolished.

Travancore is a bijou suburb named after a beautiful Victorian mansion erected in 1863. The mansion's grounds were subdivided in the late 1890s to form the new suburb, which consists only of only about five streets. With commanding views of Royal Park, the area was much sought after by aspiring middle and upper middle-class citizens. This spacious stand alone double brick residence would have been acquired by the latter of these groups. Houses like these would have suited a medium sized Edwardian family, and would have required a small retinue of servants to maintain.

The whole house, which has a large street frontage, is surrounded by a well established garden.

English translation follows the German


An die Freude

1 Freude, schoener Goetterfunken,
2 Tochter aus Elysium,
3 Wir betreten feuertrunken,
4 Himmlische, dein Heiligtum.
5 Deine Zauber binden wieder
6 Was der Mode Schwert geteilt
7 Bettler werden Fuerstenbrueder
8 Wo dein sanfter Fluegel weilt.

Chor
9 Seid umschlungen, Millionen!
10 Diesen Kuss der ganzen Welt!
11 Brueder - ueber'm Sternenzelt
12 Muss ein lieber Vater wohnen.
13 Wem der grosse Wurf gelungen,
14 Eines Freundes Freund zu sein,
15 Wer ein holdes Weib errungen,
16 Mische seinen Jubel ein!
17 Ja - wer auch nur eine Seele
18 Sein nennt auf dem Erdenrund!
19 Und wer's nie gekonnt, der stehle
20 Weinend sich aus diesem Bund

Chor
21 Was den grossen Ring bewohnet,
22 Huldige der Sympathie!
23 Zu den Sternen leitet sie,
24 Wo der Unbekannte thronet.

25 Freude trinken alle Wesen
26 An den Bruesten der Natur,
27 Alle Guten, alle Boesen,
28 Folgen ihrer Rosenspur.
29 Kuesse gab sie uns, und Reben,
30 Einen Freund, geprueft im Tod,
31 Wollust ward dem Wurm gegeben,
32 Und der Cherub steht vor Gott.

Chor
33 Ihr stuerzt nieder, Millionen?
34 Ahndest du den Schoepfer, Welt?
35 Such ihn ueberm Sternenzelt.
36 Ueber Sternen muss er wohnen.
37 Freude heisst die starke Feder
38 In der ewigen Natur.
39 Freude, Freude, treibt die Raeder
40 In der grossen Weltenuhr.
41 Blumen lockt sie aus den Keimen,
42 Sonnen aus dem Firmament,
43 Sphaeren rollt sie in den Raeumen,
44 Die des Sehers Rohr nicht kennt.

Chor
45 Froh, wie seine Sonnen fliegen
46 Durch des Himmels praecht'gen Plan
47 Laufet, Brueder, eure Bahn,
48 Freudig wie ein Held zum Siegen.
49 Aus der Wahrheit Feuerspiegel
50 Laechelt sie den Forscher an.
51 Zu der Tugend steilem Huegel
52 Leitet sie des Dulders Bahn.
53 Auf des Glaubens Sonnenberge
54 Sieht man ihre Fahnen wehn,
55 Durch den Riss gesprengter Saerge
56 Sie im Chor der Engel stehn.

Chor
57 Duldet mutig, Millionen!
58 Duldet fuer die bess're Welt!
59 Droben ueber'm Sternenzelt

69 Unser Schuldbuch sei vernichtet!
70 Ausgesoehnt die ganze Welt!

73 Freude sprudelt in Pokalen,
74 In der Traube goldnem Blut
75 Trinken Sanftmut Kannibalen,
76 Die Verzweiflung Heldenmut--
77 Brueder, fliegt von euren Sitzen,
78 Wenn der volle Roemer kreist,
79 Lasst den Schaum zum Himmel* sptruetzen:
80 Dieses Glas dem guten Geist.

Chor
81 Den der Sterne Wirbel loben
82 Den des Seraphs Hymne preist,

95 Dem Geluebde treu zu sein,
96 Schwoert es bei dem Sternenrichter!
97 Rettung von Tyrannenketten,
98 Grossmut auch dem Boesewicht,
99 Hoffnung auf den Sterbebetten,
100 Gnade auf dem Hochgericht!
101 Auch die Toten sollen leben!
102 Brueder, trinkt und stimmet ein,
103 Allen Suendern soll vergeben,
104 Und die Hoelle nicht mehr sein.

Chor
105 Eine heitre Abschiedsstunde!
106 Suessen Schlaf im Leichentuch!

108 Aus des Totenrichters Mund.

To Joy

1 Joy, beautiful spark of Gods,
2 Daughter of Elysium,
3 We enter, fire-imbibed,
4 Heavenly, thy sanctuary.
5 Thy magic powers re-unite
6 What custom's sword has divided
7 Beggars become Princes' brothers
8 Where thy gentle wing abides.

Chorus
9 Be embraced, millions!
10 This kiss to the entire world!
11 Brothers - above the starry canopy
12 A loving father must dwell.
13 Whoever has had the great fortune,
14 To be a friend's friend,
15 Whoever has won the love of a devoted wife,
16 Add his to our jubilation!
17 Indeed, whoever can call even one soul
18 His own on this earth!
19 And whoever was never able to must creep
20 Tearfully away from this circle.

Chorus
21 Those who dwell in the great circle,
22 Pay homage to sympathy!
23 It leads to the stars,
24 Where the Unknown reigns.

25 Joy all creatures drink
26 At nature's bosoms;
27 All, Just and Unjust,
28 Follow her rose-petalled path.
29 Kisses she gave us, and Wine,
30 A friend, proven in death,
31 Pleasure was given (even) to the worm,
32 And the Cherub s











Better for us, perhaps, it might appear, / That never air or ocean felt the wind / That never passion discompos'd the mind.




Better for us, perhaps, it might appear, / That never air or ocean felt the wind / That never passion discompos'd the mind.





Hope humbly then; with trembling pinions soar;
Wait the great teacher Death; and God adore!
What future bliss, he gives not thee to know,
But gives that hope to be thy blessing now.
Hope springs eternal in the human breast:
Man never is, but always to be blest:
The soul, uneasy and confin'd from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.

....

Ask for what end the heav'nly bodies shine,
Earth for whose use? Pride answers, " 'Tis for mine:
For me kind Nature wakes her genial pow'r,
Suckles each herb, and spreads out ev'ry flow'r;
Annual for me, the grape, the rose renew,
The juice nectareous, and the balmy dew;
For me, the mine a thousand treasures brings;
For me, health gushes from a thousand springs;
Seas roll to waft me, suns to light me rise;
My foot-stool earth, my canopy the skies."

But errs not Nature from this gracious end,
From burning suns when livid deaths descend,
When earthquakes swallow, or when tempests sweep
Towns to one grave, whole nations to the deep?
"No, ('tis replied) the first Almighty Cause
Acts not by partial, but by gen'ral laws;
Th' exceptions few; some change since all began:
And what created perfect?"--Why then man?
If the great end be human happiness,
Then Nature deviates; and can man do less?
As much that end a constant course requires
Of show'rs and sunshine, as of man's desires;
As much eternal springs and cloudless skies,
As men for ever temp'rate, calm, and wise.
If plagues or earthquakes break not Heav'n's design,
Why then a Borgia, or a Catiline?
Who knows but he, whose hand the lightning forms,
Who heaves old ocean, and who wings the storms,
Pours fierce ambition in a C?sar's mind,
Or turns young Ammon loose to scourge mankind?
From pride, from pride, our very reas'ning springs;
Account for moral, as for nat'ral things:
Why charge we Heav'n in those, in these acquit?
In both, to reason right is to submit.

Better for us, perhaps, it might appear,
Were there all harmony, all virtue here;
That never air or ocean felt the wind;
That never passion discompos'd the mind.
But ALL subsists by elemental strife;
And passions are the elements of life.
The gen'ral order, since the whole began,
Is kept in nature, and is kept in man.

....

Cease then, nor order imperfection name:
Our proper bliss depends on what we blame.
Know thy own point: This kind, this due degree
Of blindness, weakness, Heav'n bestows on thee.
Submit.--In this, or any other sphere,
Secure to be as blest as thou canst bear:
Safe in the hand of one disposing pow'r,
Or in the natal, or the mortal hour.
All nature is but art, unknown to thee;
All chance, direction, which thou canst not see;
All discord, harmony, not understood;
All partial evil, universal good:
And, spite of pride, in erring reason's spite,
One truth is clear, Whatever is, is right.

Alexander Pope, "An Essay on Man: Epistle I"
