One more bit of wallpaper...

(Anyone else remember this song? Well, anyway...)

I noticed that my computer had failed to download all the trip photos. There were a few from the Hadrian's Wall day that somehow didn't make it onto iPhoto. So, I switched to Image Capture, got them, and found that this one was especially pretty and deserves to be shared with you guys as wallpaper.

It is a place in the English countryside near Hadrian's Wall - though I think the actual visible walls in this photo are just sheep fences. Someone had built a little stone pedestal there, long ago. Could be Roman, I suppose, though I don't really know. There were British pennies all over the top of it, suggesting it has become something of a wishing stone. We put a two-pence piece on it; then, noticing that there weren't any American coins on there, we added an American penny as well.

Notice the springy, super-short turf and moss on the ground. That stuff is lovely to walk on. I see why they invented golf on this island.

Hehe. Indeed, indeed. It's probably been a sheep fence all this time, but still, a sheep fence older than our country. ;)

GORGEOUS picture.

Re: the song....Pretty Poison or Nu Shoez I believe. I remember that action. Can't imagine the remake...how is it?

Ah, no - different "Catch Me I'm Falling" altogether; not a cover. This one's much more pleasant, in my opinion...

Just wanted to say thank you for providing your lj-perusers with pretty wallpapers and thereby beautifying desktops the world over. Very kind of you to share your photos.

You're welcome - no problem on my part! I'm always on the lookout for good wallpaper myself, so I figure I ought to share if I have a hand in creating some. :)

The only song I remember from "Real Life" is "Send Me An Angel"

Yep, that's them. This one sounds fairly similar.

is that pic ^^ from narnia???
Fellow Canadian idiot, Michael Moore, will be releasing his newest movie, "Farenheight 911" to theatres, right before the election. This movie, like all of his others, (including "Roger and Me" and "Bowling for Columbine"), will be nothing but propaganda and lies accusing the Bush administration of horrendous acts, including having "secret, personal ties" with Osama Bin Laden, himself. Moore's purpose? To influence the election. As Sean Hannity says, "We've got a mountain to climb", but you can have your voice heard. Disney is financing and promoting this film, so you can write a letter of complaint regarding their support of this misleading and hateful movie. Express your opinion and/or retracted support from Disney by writing to:
Mr. Michael D. Eisner (Chairman and CEO)- "The Walt Disney Company" 500 South Buena Vista Street, Burbank, Ca 91521

Re: is that pic ^^ from narnia???
Yes - the Narnia snow scene on the other side of the wardrobe.

And, er, thanks for the heads up on Moore. Guess we always suspected Disney was evil. Heh.
