Moors for the Future website is up...

Moors For the Future logo

The Moors for the Future website has finally appeared. There isn't much there at the moment, and according to Cas Worman who is working on the site,

The website is in process of being written at the moment. For now, it's only going to be a 'who we are and what we do' type set-up as the person who will ultimately be in charge of the website will be the Information Officer (due to be in place by Christmas), not me.

The long-term plan will be to have lots of data/ info etc we've collected on there too, but this won't be for a while yet!

Good to see the site is up at last!

Nature's Henry Moore

Barrow Stones

I was out on patrol today with John, a trainee Ranger, and our route took us to Barrow Stones, somewhere I haven't been for a while. John was quite taken with the weathered gritstone rocks at both Grinah Stones and Barrow Stones, and commented that the one above particularly reminded him of a Henry Moore sculpture, and I think he is right.

Unfortunately some mindless moron has inscribed a large 'S' and '2003' 1 inch into the surface of the rocks just out of shot using a hammer and chisel. Quite exactly why they felt this was an OK thing to do I have no idea - if they did it to a building it would be classed as criminal damage and they would be liable to prosecution, and I see no reason why this vandalism should be treated any differently. It has taken since the last Ice Age for these rocks to weather into their current form, yet some selfish idiot seems to think it is OK to hack lumps out of them. Bah.

Some random links

I've collected up a few interesting/funny links over the last couple of days, so I thought I'd immortalize them here ;-)

Someone pointed me at this page of optical illusions, I particularly like the first one, it makes my eyes go "well wonky", as my kids would say.

I also found this site which concentrates on paintshop and flash animation satire. I't a bit scurrilous, not for the easily offended and some of it is rather hit-or-miss, but there are some gems hidden in there, ones that particularly ticked my warped sense of humor are Arafatboy Slim and this spoof google search (geddit?).

I also rather like the http://bbspot.com satire site. It's a bit like the more well-known http://theonion.com, except to my mind it is much funnier and much better done. I particularly like these:
