Isn't it tomorrow? June 21st. Or, oh God have I slept through a whole day again  owing to alcohol? :shock:

Yes it is got a bit muddled up as I was reading about how Stonehenge will close its normal visitor operation 3pm on Saturday, 20th June 2009.

But then as Dredd said: "Next time, we get our retaliation in first".

My Missus is in Edinburgh tonight doing the Moonwalk in aid of Breast Cancer charities.

10000 women strolling through Edinburgh in their bras.

I think they pick this date because the night isn't so long...

And coincidentally, I got THE LONGEST DAY on DVD for Father's Day.  Looking forward to sitting down with that.

Hi new home loan person !

Its a bit late to be wishing everyone a happy solstice as that was 10 days ago but the art is very impressive.

Its from Slaine by Massimo Belardinelli.

If you like it you ought to see more of it and there are plenty of 2000ad titles that feature his art to choose from.
