I guess it’s all about being there. Or making at least making it look like you were. The Jackson Sun website must be getting a lot of traffic at the moment, though I doubt their story about planting trees on Chester Co. farm is racking up the hits for the reasons intended – more to do with this appalling use of photoshop that rivals even the worst efforts of those forever alone bodies shopping themselves attached to some nubile young babe. The full, otherwise fascinating article is here – http://www.jacksonsun.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2012202020309.

I’d like to share something I found of a slightly more serious note in this post – don’t worry, I do have funny stuff coming involving dogs.
Taking a step away from watching videos of cats stuffing their friends in boxes (yeah, have a look but do come back, please) I was thumbing through news on a subject close to my heart – conservation. I’m not about to start banging on Al Gore style, I think the decline of the planet is down to many, many things as well as us.
However, what annoys me is how many people – including the aforementioned VP (seriously, why wasn’t he this vocal an advocate for change when he had real power?) – jump on the bandwagon. You, know, the “oh the ice caps are melting at such an alarming rate… look how enviro-concious we are” bandwagon. This week, the famed Times Atlas, selling for just £150 ($237) tried to do just that, highlighting in their latest “most authoritative” atlas and the publicitiy speil around its release, that they’ve had to make oh so many revisions since the 2007 edition as a result of environmental change.
