Have been sifting through some photos - made up a gallery using
i-photos. some favorite shots and also some from Ukraine in 2003 which I've promised to make available.

St Phillips

My brother James put me onto the Friends Re-united site where there's quite a lot in info about my old school, St Phillips in Burley, Yorkshire. The school under Mr Clarke had a free and easy 60s style which went a bit too far leading to its closure. I had a good time nevertheless.

Many thanks to everyone in Odessa who made my trip so enjoyable - at Top Media and the students (pictured). I will post some thoughts and pictures very soon.

Space Station

Imax at the Science Museum. First time I've seen a 3D presentation - as close as being there as I could imagine. Can recommend the experience and particularly this film. Space Station features amazing scenes of earth and is a story well told.

"Change begets change. Nothing propagates so fast. If a man habituated to a narrow circle of cares and pleasures, out of which he seldom travels, step beyond it, though for never so brief a space, his departure from the monotonous scene on which he has been an actor of importance would seem to be the signal for instant confusion. The mine which Time has slowly dug beneath familiar objects is sprung in an instant; and what was rock before, becomes but sand and dust."

Church Brand

Very good interview with Steve Collins on branding and church. Interestingly, it seems to me, the brand image of church is formed by people who only experience it through the press and TV. Jonathan Ross touched on the subject on Saturday morning when Joe Brand recommended that his kids go to church. He seemed to suggest that his kids would be less safe in church than they would be in Soho – with drunks and people pooing in dark corners.
