Ding dong … where were YOU when you heard?

I had just got back to my desk after having a shower.

One of my Facebook friends had shared a link to the Wizard of Oz, “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” …

Another one announced that all weekend plans were cancelled as a bit party was to be arranged.

Others are already debating whether she did good or bad.

So – the most famous Food Scientist (after Magnus Pyke) is dead.

There’s a guy cutting the grass on my housing estate with ear protectors on – he probably doesn’t know.

Photos taken at 12:12 on 12/12/12

In honour of this momentous arbitrary occasion, my friend Fi decided to invite people to take photos during this minute and launched a Facebook and Flickr group for people to store their images. I only stored one in each but these were the ones I took during the whole minute.

I popped out for lunch and decided to stop just down the road from our offices, close to Penrith. There has been a cold frost for several days here and today the fog had lingered for most of the day… the sun came out just for these shots.

I first listened to Fi being interviewed on Radio Cumbria, and when the time came I did actually still have a mobile signal (yay!) so posted up my pic, then ate my lunch, listening to a fieldfare in the tree next to me.

When I turned the car around to drive back to the office, The fields and trees had already started to defrost back to green and brown instead of white.

Bad facebook, very bad.

I saw this on my facebook feed just now. Seriously? They are promoting SPAM?
