I like Greenpeace's style. They've bought a plot of land bang in the middle of the proposed new runway at Heathrow. This means that as the owners of the land they will be directly involved in any legal wranglings resulting from the development. To support them you can sign up to be a joint owner of the plot. There's no financial outlay here, it just means you appear as a joint owner on the legal deed of trust. Clever stuff.

A dreich January day.... perfect weather for a churchyard! Turned off the main road between Dundee and Forfar and came accross this little church in Inverarity (a good Scottish place name if ever there was one). Note the chain coming down directly from the bell on the outside of the church, surely too much to resist for the local kids!

Had a strong urge to see the sea today so jumped in the car and headed down to Carnoustie. It looked bright if a touch chilly but I thought it might blow the cobwebs away. I'm not a great lover of January in general, it's a pretty crap month when nothing really happens but I have to say that so far this year my disposition has been not too bad. This in spite of the fact that as usual we start the year with a plethora of war and a global financial disaster. Never mind Barack Obama arrives at the White House on Tuesday, he'll sort the world out..........
My walk on the beach lasted half an hour, it was baltic in the extreme. Took me another half hour to thaw out in the car afterwards. It looks ok in the pics I took but as I drove home the snow came on.
