Glad you like the pic - Queen's Park is a great place.
I hope this won't disappoint too much but the pic was taken with the Hipstamatic app on an iPhone. I'm afraid there was no other software involved nor secrets to share. More info here: http://hipstamaticapp.com/. I just had a quick look for filters or packages that might do a similar thing and there are a few things going on, like this: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r24315589-Hipstamatic-Effect-Photoshop-Plugin
I absolutely love your photo of Queen's Park simply because I'm from Glasgow and most of my childhood summers were spent in that park. I was just wondering what software you used to edit your photo the way you did because I've been looking for software that does that and I can't find it anywhere.
Sorry about your name. I've corrected it in the main post. I actually got it from the Kindrogan publicity material - oops.
Nature is the winner, you are quite correct. Since the course I've started reading 'The Soundscape' by R.Murray Schafer, which seems to be an extended argument for what you've said in four words.
I'll be really interested to hear about the Bill Fontana. It looks great.
Hope you're having a great time and I that the flights are going again by the time you head home.
I hit London last night (or rather it hit me) and hope to back up my material later this afternoon. I did get a bit of the tadpoles using Phil's mixer and my recorder (but will be the same as Roger's I guess). Otherwise will be able to sort things out more when I get back to Perth after the 8th.
Will see the Bill Fontana piece...
Lovely to hear from you. Do you think you'll get to see 'Funny'? Perhaps Stewart will be dragging you along. It's coming along very well so I hope you can see it.
I get many of my teas on-line from Jung Tea (http://jingtea.com/) including the delicious Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea. There's an article on their excellent web site about the scenting of the tea with Jasmine here: http://jingtea.wordpress.com/2009/08/03/jasmine-tea-discovery/
Hopefully see you soon
Hi Tim, hope you're well. Funny - pun intended - I should read about your avidness for tea in the week I started drinking green tea ( at the Rio cafe in Partick.) Please let me know where you purchase Jasmine Silver Needles White Tea and Oolongs. I have a delicious recipe for Indian chai using fennel and black and green cardomom.

I was gutted.
Did you ever see the horse trailer they had for the Roadshow?
I remember it being on TV in my callow youth... David Rappaport, Slyvester McCoy and Chris Langham's heads all crammed inside a TV set.
Very envious that you got to meet him.
Have a look on YouTube - there are some videos of the great man there.
I would love to see the routine that Max Wall used to do with the long hair and black tights, also his piano routine ie Dr Bronovski? Where`s The Stool ?
I know exactly what you mean. I saw Max Wall with Trevor Peacock and Garry Waldhorn in the revival of 'Godot' at the Royal Exchange in Manchester in the 80's. Up to that point I had been intimidated by theatre, but he broke down that wall (excuse the pun) and I realised that a lived in face and experience could squeeze much more out of a text than any amount of 'training'. I didn't go on to work in theatre, but haven't lost my love for it. I was actually looking for a picture of Max to accompany an entry on my blog and your post came as a pleasant surprise.
