English Counties [Jan. 27th, 2006|09:57 pm]
Tony Grist
The first time I tried this I found there were certain counties I must have hopped over to get from one yellow splotch to another. So I tried again. This time I was less picky. But can you say you've visited a place when you've only rushed through it on the motorway? And how many memories of a place constitute a proper visit?

And then there's Wales. I've been to various places in Wales, but I haven't a clue what their counties are called.

And finally, Cornwall? Have I been to Cornwall? Did I briefly pop over the border last time I was in Devon? I really don't remember.

I don't know how, exactly, I just know that some things (often a large graphic) will do this.

The comments for your post appear on the top of my friends page, separate from your post. And the frame that allows me to navigate within LiveJournal disappears, which is REALLY annoying, and why I said something.

Thanks for putting it behind a cut.

How odd.

I picked the thing off my friend's page where it wasn't doing any harm.

Sorry to have caused a nuisance.

I'm just happy you fixed it! I appreciate that. Often these things are ads that people don't bother to check for responses, so they screw up my friends page till they are pushed down.

It must depend on the configuration of your friends page, whether you have frames and how they are arranged.

P.S. I've put it behind a cut.

Man that graphic buggers up my Friends page something startling. Any chance of putting it behind a cut?

I'll try.

It is a little eye-popping, I'll admit

My gracious goodness! I missed all the excitement around here!

Your graphic is nicely restrained back here on page 2.

I've only been to London (experience of a lifetime!) and Oxfordshire. I plan to return to England some day and re-visit all that I saw, plus add Cambridge to the mix. I didn't get a chance to see Stonehenge, but from what I've heard, it's better as a myth than as a reality. (Someone told me you could see a McDonald's over the hill from it, in the near-distance). I stayed in Bloomsbury and went to Ted Hughes' and Sylvia Plath's old haunts and homes.

Stonehenge is a grave disappointment. It sits close to a road, the facilities are ugly and it's always crawling with tourists. If you want to visit a truly impressive stone circle, then Avebury- only a few miles away- is bigger and much more atmospheric.

I love Bloomsbury. The most beautiful quarter of a beautiful city.
