Free food and an important message about food waste. I am now eating a rather nice vegetarian curry.
The Manchester Cowboy, originally uploaded by spinneyhead.
David Thomas Jones is perhaps better known as Davy Jones of the Monkees. We found this headstone dedicated to him in Gorton Cemetery. He was born in Openshaw and appeared in Coronation Street before heading to the States to become a heart throb, so it’s an appropriate place for a memorial.
The cuts were part of this moronic “austerity” plan the Government is so keen on, despite the fact it’s not only not working but making things worse. Sneakily privatising the NHS (something almost everyone in the cabinet will benefit from financially) and bringing in policies that kill people are far worse than the closure of a few museums, but it gives us a taste of the wasteland that’s going to be left behind by this bunch of morons.
Manchester Day Parade, originally uploaded by spinneyhead.
I just watched the parade on Deansgate. It’s still going on and hasn’t finished its return loop yet. This is the Air Training Corps, making me fear for the future of our armed forces by going the wrong way.
More pictures when I’ve edited and uploaded the ones from the camera.
I probably shouldn’t go to this, too much caffeine plays havoc with the ulcer.
Pop up bikes, originally uploaded by spinneyhead.
If it were on the other side of the centre Pop Up Bikes might become my new favourite coffee shop. It’s an excellent idea- a cafe in a railway arch with bike parking and room to work on your ride included.
I think this is awesome, though I sometimes have problems speaking my one language (I swear, one day Charlotte and I are going to have a conversation completely in grunts). Obviously the reactionarie are going to tell me that living in a world class city is somehow a bad thing.
