We seem to be grinding to a halt. WU has become almost like a ghost town.

Never Mind - I intend to hang in here until the very end! Then I will let off several fireworks and toast everyone's health with a glass of amber nectar, whilst singing Auld Lang Syne!

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?

And auld lang syne.


For auld lang ...

December 13th


Snowflakes are understood to be unique - at a molecular level at least.

But scientists have revealed that each one of them can in fact be sorted into 35 general shapes, which in turn tell experts how they formed.

The shapes, which include column crystals, irregular snow particles and plane crystals, which make ‘traditional’ hexagonal snowflakes, vary according to t...

Many amateur photographers, as well as the professionals, have been looking heavenwards this week, trying to capture the 'supermoon' .

Those of us in the UK were worried that the clouds would cover the moon on Monday night, obscuring the moon, but we were lucky and the moon put in an appearance about 8:30pm.

As the moon was already at about 35% to the horizon the 'super' size was not as noticeable, but it was definitely brig...
