And it’s back to what passes for normal around here. Today’s weight is a wee bit up on what it was before I went to London, but not really significantly so.
I spotted this in Eldon Square today, and got a quick iPhone picture:
Nice to see a public display using a moderately recent version of Windows for a change…
Last night, I got back home from three days in London, which explains the lack of stuff around here. I’ll do some retrospective posts tomorrow, including the fascinating end of month report thingy.
Well, I’m back from London, and as I’ve already had something to eat, I’ve missed the opportunity to get a moderately accurate weight for today. Never mind, etc.
Here’s a quick picture from the London trip, a slightly modified warning sign:
OK, no weight figure today, as I’m in a hotel and didn’t bring the scales with me.
For a change, today involved not going to the office, but to a trade show in Earls Court. As I prefer to avoid the crowded environment of the Tube, and it was a nice day, I planned a nice little walk:
Nice little walk
You can see it in fully clickable form on GMaps Pedometer.
It was a nice morning for a stroll through Hyde Park, and past the Natural History Museum. The show was the usual cacophony of loud stands, some interesting bits and an expensive sandwich for lunch. Incredibly, after spending most of the day on my feet at the show, I persuaded myself to walk back, too. My feet began complaining by the time I got back to Hyde Park, but they managed to survive. That came to a total walk of not much less than eight miles, which is the most I’ve done in a very long time.
I took some pictures, which will be appearing as soon as tuits allow.
 Shocking, I know
What with trying to get it together to catch a train to London, I managed not to weigh myself this morning. Or maybe I did and forgot the figure immediately afterwards. I don’t actually recall.
Anyway, I travelled to London today for one of those regular, though not as frequent as they used to be, visits. Various work things were done.
Today’s picture is an experiment – it’s an interior shot of Castell Coch, which I’ve posted previously, but this time it’s gone through Photoshop CS5’s HDR toning toys, which do some interesting things without the usual need for multiple exposures. I quite like this:

 A hint that this post may not have been written on its apparent date. I do that now and then, you know.
I seem to be on an excessively early train.
This may not work yet, but it should soon. Reduced layout on index pages for quick comments or links.
Down a wee bit again today, good stuff.
Today’s picture is a bit of architectural oddness from Cardiff Bay:
I saw a few angry messages on Twitter about this yesterday, but as I was watching Doctor Who on the HD channel, I wasn’t subjected to this bit of crass marketing idiocy.
Yes, just as the episode was coming to its cliffhanging climax, with the Doctor making one of his best speeches ever, some buffoon decided that it would be a good idea to superimpose a cartoon version of Graham Norton over the picture, to promote the following show.
It’s quite bad enough that closing credits get chopped to bits and interrupted by mini-trailers, but to put this kind of rubbish on the screen before the action has ended shows a new level of contempt for the material being shown.
Of course, Mr Norton has previously interfered with the Doctor. I think a visit from the Daleks is called for.
