Edinburgh’s St Andrew Square has poster displays of the City’s forthcoming Science Festival. I’m sure the Festival is getting bigger and better every year, though I have to admit that for the last three or so years I have only attended the children’s events held at the Arts Centre (where kids do loads of interesting things with electronics, robots, botanists and medics, while their parents hang around in corridors and look at their watches). If you don’t have children then why not borrow some* and take them along between April 9th and 22nd. Grown-up stuff too, I see from the programme. Maybe I will treat myself.
Edinburgh is quite a city, it does these things so well. Except trams… don’t mention the trams.

I have been playing with different blog themes. Found a nice header photo, one I took a few years ago. It lends itself to the panoramic frame style, don’t you think? Quite a different view of the Glenfinnan Viaduct from the one you see in the Harry Potter films. No sign of the Hogwarts Express, either. The artists amongst you will notice the aesthetic style. The engineers will notice the concrete corrosion….
I bought a Haynes Manual today about web site building. I have used them for years when rebuilding old motorbikes. The difference with this one is that I don’t need to use spanners. Hopefully I’ll have a website up and running soon. I also went to the barbers… I needed it. For you guys in Edinburgh, try Blunted Barbers near St.Andrew Square (bluntedbarbers.com) I don’t intend turning this blog into an ad site, but want to give them a plug as it is the best place I know.
