The Giant and another Silly Sign

Another signA couple of weeks ago, I mentioned the Cerne Abbas Giant chalk figure. It seems he just hit the News again, because, on an adjacent hillside, another figure has appeared … that of … wait for it … HOMER SIMPSON!!I’d like to be able to post my own photograph of Homer, but it’s been raining heavily, and, since those responsible say he’s painted in water-soluble paint, I don’t think he’ll be there by the time I get down there.But, to see pictures, and read the whole story, go to http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/dorset/6901543.stm

Be quick, though … I don’t know how long the Beeb keep stories like that on their website. I’m going to the Isle of Wight for a couple of days tomorrow. I don’t know what time I’ll be back on Friday, so, if I miss my Friday entry, the next one will be the ‘travel diary’ entry on Monday.

And, today’s picture! Well, I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist it. And, I wonder if the inhabitants of this particular Cretan village wonder why all these Brits keep stopping and photographing their sign?

STOP PRESS!! See today’s entry at http://writetotravel.blogspot.com/
