What goes buzz in my head in the middle of the night? Well I am often trying to remember a French word for such and such. However last night I thought about the "Credit munch" phrase borrowed from Henry the dogs Mum. Many people berate the Prime Minster in the UK, they think that he has done a bad job, many call him a plonker and far worse.
My problem is that I just don't get any of what is happening with the Munch at the moment. Do you remember that great big piece of kit under the ground near Switzerland costing BILLIONS. Some big bang machine if you have forgotten what I am thinking about here is a link Large Hadron Collider, and here some amazing pictures. I wonder what is happening with that project?
I recently read about some big white horse that will be costing 2 million some sort of Angel of the South, link here.
So whilst I appreciate art and find science interesting, this kind of spending bonanza puts my head in a spin. After all we know that there are no pots of gold at the rainbows end! If many people are having to change their lifestyles, why is it that some individuals received huge payouts.
My picture today is one of my words this week, sauterelle, grasshopper.
Where are the Golden Grasshoppers.
Here is a link to a facinating science blog.
The French word for jump is saute.
The French word for unfair is injuste
Etymology for the word moment.
