Ten Questions For the Volcano

 

Photo of the day: Looking for ash, but this is what most London nights looks like.

Iceland’s volcano is causing a mess in the aerospace industry and the one source the media isn’t talking to is the volcano! Here are my questions for the volcano.

Ten Questions For Eyjafjallajökull:

  1. Why are you mad?
  2. When will you stop spewing?
  3. Can you make your ash disappear? Will you? Now? Please.
  4. Is this the end?
  5. What can I do to help you?
  6. Do you have any accomplices?
  7. Do you compromise?
  8. Will you be reimbursing loses?
  9. Will you be doing this again?
  10. Do you understand what kind of trouble you’re in?

 

Saturday's view from Parliament Hill over London. If you looked up you would seen a beautiful sky like...

 

...this. The sky remained a brilliant deep blue the entire weekend, despite the volcanic ash cloud.

Poles grieve in Trafalgar Square

Fountains in Trafalgar Square stopped running as crowds gathered to mourn the loss of Poland’s President and First Lady, Lech and Maria Kaczynscy, and other officials who died in a plane crash.

Screened on a jumbo LCD panel Poles and non-Polish people watched the funeral ceremonies from a TVP Polonia feed.

Trafalgar Square was nearly filled to capacity and quiet except for the audio from the funeral ceremony. Polish and British support and pride was shown as people held miniature flags and some held signs representing their Polish nationality.

The ceremony was in Polish, and parts of the video program shown had an English translation. The program ended with a short video about the plane crash and the individuals who lost their lives. The final video piece described the 1940s massacre of Katyn, where Soviet secret police killed 21,786 Polish army prisoners of war and public servants. President Kaczynski went on a journey on April 10 to pay tribute to victims of the Katyn Massacre for its 70th Anniversary.

Photo of the Day – Planted Ads

Aril 15, 2010

An efficient use of ad space and plants.

Eco garden ads are sprouting up all around urban environments.

 

Though, I'm not sure how the plants feel.

It might be a bit of an oxymoron for the advertisement as well.
