Living With War

Neil Young has released his new album, Living With War for free listening online. Details are in the Living With War blog. It's great to see protest songs alive and well.

A Cyberman, Dalek, and the Rebee (the scariest of them all), Broad Street, Worcester, attending a signing by Katy Manning (Jo Grant) and Annette Badland (Margaret Blaine) at The Videodrome.

Thanks to Katy and Annette for making Rebekah's day, you are two very lovely ladies.

Spring has Sprung II

I'm sure many know of this one already, but Infotec Business Systems is hosting a webcam feed of a pair of nesting eagles on Hornby Island, British Columbia. Beware, the feed isn't always live, and they don't make it clear what's live and what's a replay. Fascinating nonetheless.

Update, Easter Sunday:

Here are Polish and German webcams to look at if you prefer storks to eagles.

And if they're not enough, there's a wide selection of other nesting bird cams to choose from.

Update, May 4th

The Guardian has found out about it too.

April Fool

Happy April 1st, folks (bet that fooled you).

Wikipedia has the roundup.

I particularly liked Google Romance.
