" Up The Junction "

A spur of the moment decision to go Sunday afternoon riding, see’s us at Fradley junction on the Trent & Mersey canal. Although we chose to take the Coventry canal for one of those there and back ! to see how far it is kind of trips.

The pictures give the appearance that it wasn’t very busy, however the place was bustling with activity, plenty of wining, dining, boating, walking, and of course cycling.

The retro fords brought back memories of my youth, but sadly although owning both the mark 1 & mark 2 versions of the escort, neither were as nice as these examples.

New Post has been published on http://hospitaljobs.us.com/doctor-doctor-theres-two-of-you-identical-twins-land-jobs-at-same-hospital-3/?utm_source=TR&utm_medium=&utm_campaign=SNAPDoctor, doctor there’s two of you! Identical twins land jobs at same hospital


Identical twins and Coventry hospital doctors Yasmine and Sasha Darwazeh (Picture: Caters)Their bright matching smiles might give patients a pick-me-up. But the sight of these two on their rounds could also bring on a surge in complaints of double vision.
Twins Yasmine and Sasha Darwazeh have both qualified as doctors – and have landed jobs at the same hospital.
‘It’s confusing if we’re ever on the same ward together,’ admitted Yasmine. ‘Sasha’s colleagues come up to me and ask about her cases. At first, they must think she’s stupid because of the bewildered look on my face. But when I explain, they apologise profusely.’
The sisters studied the same A-levels in their home town of Coventry and went to Birmingham University together to study biochemistry – each getting a 2:1.
Yasmine got a job as a teacher but quit to join Sasha on Warwick University’s medical course when her sibling told her how much she was enjoying it.
Yasmine has now been recruited to work in gastroenterology at Coventry’s University Hospital, where Sasha has a job on the children’s ward.
The 27-year-olds, who are identical save for a tiny freckle on Yasmine’s face, have a strategy to avoid confusion in the corridors.
‘Sasha has got these really geeky, milk bottle-like spectacles that she wears around the wards,’ Yasmine laughed.
‘I’m meant to wear glasses too but I try not to – it would make everything even more confusing.’

Strange Vintage Photos

These are some of the best strange vintage photos I have found on the web. I have no idea where any of them are from, but they each have a very unique possible story line. The eye in the tree is the best. If anyone has information on these pictures, please send it.

Creepy Art in Abandoned Psychiatric Hospitals

For a project entitled “1,000 Shadows,” Brazilian street artist Herbert Baglione invaded abandoned hospital wards in Madrid, Paris and other undisclosed locales to add ghostly shadows to the already eerie buildings.

Spindly, stretched ghosts emerge under doors, float through windows and emerge out of objects’ shadows.

The Dino Pet - A Self Sustaining Night Light
Designed by Yonder Biology (“The DNA Art Company”), the Dino Pet is a dinosaur-shaped habitat for a species of bioluminescent marine algae that photosynthesizes during the day and glows at night. “Dino” is actually a play on words, as the actual organisms contained inside the dinosaur-shaped model are called dinoflagellates and are known for their ability to glow when physically agitated (shaken). You might have already seen them in action as they live on various shorelines that cause the waves to glow at night. The organisms can live for 1-3 months but can potentially live indefinitely if the algae are supplied with the proper food and right amount of sunlight. I have a feelings these are going to be very popular but they aren’t ready for sale yet. The Dino Pet is currently funding on Kickstarter.
