Yep Maynard, I used to live around the corner from that old blonde dear in the 80’s, must have bumped into her sometime in my youth.

The one in Collyhurst or the one who runs the homeless breakfast charity?

You live in Manchester don’t you Bod? I was a student there in the late 80s, I went back there last summer and the level of development is mental. It’s visually impressive but there’s obviously a big downside.

...especially  since there is an option to view the website in English without your browser translator. Now all they need is an option to hem your jeans.

I hope this cuts down on the time it took to order from Rakuten. Tokyo is 14 hours ahead of me so they would get my order the next business day, I would get the invoice the day after that, and 3 days after ordering it would finally ship.

Website a little wonky on smartphone right now but I see they’re offering fedex shipping while still stating international delays.

Interesting article about a short-lived new town/overspill modernist ‘Lego’ estate in Runcorn (of all places!). I wasn’t aware of this place at all.

Great reading - love the Modernist Society from Manchester & their magazine.

they did a nice fold-out poster of the “Toaster Rack” where I used to study briefly.

“... the particular talents of a man who was more concerned with setting an agenda for everyone else to follow than in creating failsafe designs unworthy of controversy.”

Erm, no - not when you’re pissing public money up the wall. I see too much of this - there’s a great confusion about the role, and more the ability, of the architect (a small ‘a’ is sufficient), mostly due to highfalutin tosh like this.

Apocolyptic indeed - they're shocking conditions - just been reading a bit more about it- Can only hope that the conditions somehow improve give some respite and state/govt/people can minimise the devastation. not sure really how best to respond except to express sympathy with you all affected - it looks almost unreal, must be shocking to be anywhere half close to it

Wow, those pics are fierce 

Stay safe and hope things improve 

Makes me appreciate the dark skies we grumble about in the UK a bit more

Ash on my car in Colorado from the Cameron Peak fire. It looked the same here too a few days ago. Got the first snow of the year yesterday which has helped calm things down.

I posted earlier about how it wasn't as bad this year in Washington State, but well clearly it was too early to say that. Here is a picture of what it looked like yesterday morning (credit to the person in the watermark). Not as bad today, though, but it is still smoky.
