Christmas truce 1914Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.

No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?

  1. The music is irritating but the visuals are out of this world, once they load up!!!

    “According to the contest criteria the submitted images are taken since the beginning of 2012 and are all created in the “TWAN style”—showing both the Earth and the sky—by combining elements of the night sky set in the backdrop of the Earth horizon, often with a notable scenery or landmark.”

    Breathtaking. Eye watering. And I suppose it will all be there long after people have evolved to destruction. Timeless. Thanks marty.

    Thanks Marty Mars. Exquisite. And I liked the music too. 🙂

    We, humans beings are really quite insignificant in the scheme of things.

    • freedom 3.1

      A vision… of the universe, that tells us, undeniably, how tiny, and insignificant and how… rare, and precious we all are! A vision that tells us that we belong to something that is greater then ourselves, that we are not, that none of us are alone! I wish… I… could share that… I wish, that everyone, if only for one… moment, could feel… that awe, and humility, and hope.

      -not the craziest idea ever

  4. The Office Finale.

    Best finale since MASH.

    They knocked it out of the ball park.

  5. All weekend spent at the Labour Party conference in Hamilton. Great conference ,Star of the day Bomber Bradbery .Good speches from David Shearer and David Parker. A good turn out and the feeling was one of optimism.

    The only drawback ,We missed the Concert Programmes Sunday Opera.
