As many folk know I'm a fan of Wales and constantly looking for ways to immerse myself in all things Welsh. Imagine my delight then when someone pointed me to this wonderful site about the ancient Welsh art of Baragami.

The Imp

Glimpsed one of these in The Sweeney and I started thinking about Imps.

The basic Imp was discontinued in 1973. It had been conceived as a small car capable of carrying two adults and two children. At the time other small cars on the market included the Mini and the Fiat 500. the Imp had some important design features including an aluminium alloy engine and overhead camshaft.

Of course one rarely sees an Imp now - for all sorts of reasons. Perhaps with the rebirth of the small car it will make a return.

New Year!

It's the start of the new academic year. I'm posting this to welcome everyone to whatever they are studying and with whichever provider and at whatever level.

It's also to see whether any of the students in my T175 group find this blog and this posting and say "hello" in the comments (and anyone else who wishes to say "hello" - feel free! :-))

Rain!, originally uploaded by nogbad the bad.

Glad I have no plans for this weekend - look at this rain! Biblical proportions and it's been happening all afternoon. Not complaining though - we need some after a dry summer.

Should have sent this sooner. It's the new coffee shop at CCUC and it's fabulous. It's where the library used to be and, through the windows, has a smashing view of the central courtyardy bit with the pond. Out the other side, where I used to park, are tables for sitting outside in the sunshine. It's tres nice and I'm there next Saturday for a tutorial so I shall be enjoying it again.

Love this song


A mass of blue and stripes - he's getting to a size where he'll have to stay outside in his kennel.
