Bookshelf of Babel

I was just tidying up the computer when I stumbled upon this old picture of one of my bookshelves. Not even sure why I took it but it probably dates from at least 7 or 8 years ago. The amazing thing is how much I've crammed onto an apparently full bookshelf in the intervening years. I hesitate to take another picture because light may not be able to escape its gravitational we can't play whose bookshelf is this because you know it is mine; but can anyone accurately guess another book or object that is now on this bookshelf circa 2011? Too difficult?

Where the Heck is this, again?

Any takers? These are usually too easy...

Attic Revelations...

I'm afraid I've been teasing you. My 'attic' is really the Montacute Museum of TV, Radio and Toys in Somerset. But, of course, if you are ever in Somerset you can look round it, while my attic is not open to the public. However, it is strange to walk around a museum where all of my most prized possessions are just a sub-set of the exhibits on display.

Quint's House

One interesting thing about having this blog is that you can see the searches that people are doing that lead them here. I'd just like to apologise to the person who was looking for information about Quint's House in Jaws who was randomly brought here by their search engine. That is weird. There's no information about Jaws on this blog. But maybe there should be...I shall remedy that at some point!

Is this Really my Attic - Part 2

This has certainly got people talking. But is this really my attic? It looks like my attic and lots of my stuff seems to be in it...all will be revealed tomorrow.

My Highly Organised Attic...

Certainly got my attic looking pretty organised at the you like it? Or do I? Who thinks this is really my attic? Have any of you been in my attic to know? Or is this just another thinly disguised game of "Where the Heck is this?"

Stranger than People:Is this the Truth about Trolls?

OK, we haven't had a Stranger than People illustration for a while so here the legendary annual expounds the theory that trolls are a racial memory of neanderthals. As usual, the authors seem a little ahead of their time. And talking of Neanderthals, I was at Creswell Crags in Nottinghamshire last week looking at caves where Neanderthals actually resided once. I'll post some pics of that when I get chance, if only to show that the place looks rather like a caveman movie film set.
