Well, that's it. England has vanished.

This is the view this morning from the Isle of Wight of where the south coast used to be.

There's been a bit on the news here about an Ottawa hospital that ran out of space in the morgue and they had to 'store' some of the bodies where they wouldn't normally do so, including unrefrigerated areas where they kept the doors open, allowing cold air in to 'refrigerate' the rooms.

They also used patient rooms.

I can see it now. "Hi dad...wake up dad, I'm here to visit you."
(gives gentle shake)
"Dad?"
(leans over, pulls sheet back)
"You're not dad!"

El Popo goes up again. I've seen this guy erupt - it's pretty spectacular as long as nobody gets hurt. Volcanic areas are interesting.


I've also been here, a village that was covered by slow-moving lava.

At 6.20 this morning I put the radio on just as they were saying something about listeners choosing best song ever and American Pie started.

I sang along, perfectly in time, getting all the words right and not tripping over any of them. And then about half way through - which is already quite a long time, the song already being twice as long as most singles - I was stuck.

I could remember parts but not fluently like the first half.

Well, they do say it's recent memory that goes first.

Around the World in 80 Trains
Shades of Michael Palin but by Monisha Rajesh.

This is just a part of it.

Could be a good read.

Sigh! I would love to do that, train travel is fantastic especially the slow trains. Thanks Bristol, I'm going to buy that book

Plan to reuse graves as Highgate cemetery runs out of space
...demand for residency in this city of the dead is outstripping supply. The east cemetery will be full in about four years and the west in 10, leaving the London borough of Camden without an operational cemetery. This is why the trust wants the law changed so that certain graves can be reopened and reused, a process it describes as “grave renewal”.
Room for one more on top.
