I really enjoyed the dramatisation with Kenneth Brannagh some years ago. I think I’ve watched it a couple of times now and the story is one that I find quite inspiring. So it was nice to see these commemorative stamps. At some point I’d like to find out a bit more about him and his other expeditions. One day I’ll do that.
Good advice back in 1972! Imagine if you had the same now! I found this on Facebook and decided to add it here.
I was quite surprised that it was actually quite a small exhibition for a character as important as Ada Lovelace. Even so, it was a nice little exhibition with some interesting facts. I’m sure they could’ve found more, I’m sure they could’ve got hold of more stuff about her, but anyway, I’m glad that they at least had an exhibition about her. That’s something.
I think it’s important to remember that this isn’t just fireworks night, as so many people seem to have fallen into calling it, but it is in fact the day when we celebrate Guy Fawkes and what he stood for. It is Guy Fawkes night
I think it’s important to point out, and important to remember.
Today marks the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta. I was going to say the signing of the Magna Carta, but as I learnt on Saturday, it wasn’t signed, it was sealed. With a royal seal.
Anyway, this is a big day for a very influential document that has quite literally changed the face of the world.
It made a huge impression on me and has influenced my musical choices ever since. I can remember playing it over and over again, both sides of course.
These days, when I find a 7″ copy of it, I feel an overwhelming urge to buy it. So when I found this one in a second hand record store for £1 I did buy it.
I’m sure that eventually I’ll end up with a stack of these. Not that that’s a huge problem of course.
