Rock Star

Well, what a performance that was. I tried to change the 'skin' of the blog and ended up losing my links, hit counter and stuff. Never again!

Anyway, on the local BBC news tonight there was a bit about a chap called He yun Chang who picked a rock, about rugby ball sized, from the beach at Boulmer in October and has since carried it on his shoulders right around the British coastline. He is due to put it back on Boulmer beach on Sunday this week. Apparently it has all been done in the name of performance / endurance art.

Three and a half months to carry a boulder around Great Britain eh,thats nothing, I've carried the whole of Boulmer around my neck for 18 months!!!!

Back to more serious matters, the first Song Thrush of the year was singing here on 5th a whole 12 days earlier than last year. Spring is just around the corner...

Oh I cant wait for spring!

Couldnt imagine carrying a boulder round the uk, now if it was a camera.....

Changing blogger can be a pain, you have to add the links and stats back in, I wouldnt change again! Only good thing is that I prefer the white background

Yes Nicola I fancied a change in pattern, but wasn't really drawn to the other templates. Have you seen Debby Kaspari's blog, Drawing the Motmot? She has changed to Wordpress and it looks very good, but it seems more of an american site than Blogger.

I might see if I can spot the bloke with the rock on Sunday while I'm out birding....
