don't say i didn't warn you

bearing in mind what follows
i couldn't help but see the funny side
when the lovely Helen at Justalittlepeek
awarded me the lovely blog award.
Now I have to nominate 15 lovely blogs
that I have recently discovered.
I'll get back to you on that one
when I've had a scrummage around.
here's the pictures from
the treatment of dead enemies section

more to follow........

tradition often seems insane to me and I was fascinated
to discover that Oxford University students comply and attend
their exams in these rediculous outfits.
no doubt when they've finished the go for a punt
and then cycle home

but the best thing about Oxford is the dimly lit
where, if you can put to one side your discomfort about our disgraceful colonial past,
you can spend hours shining your wind up torch (supplied)
into cabinets (yes I said cabinets )
full of fascinating artifacts from all over the world.
From writing tools, to baby baskets
and surgical instuments to textiles
a great place to visit for anyone interested in
human beings

.....more to follow including images from the gruesome 'treatment of dead enemies' section which fascinated me but might scare the pants off others......
