Miscellaneous activities

I've just been digging up miscelleanous facts about Wanstead (a place swallowed up by East London over the last two centuries) for a project. I found a painting by Hogarth, a telescope by Huygens, some information about what you could buy for half a guinea in 1752, some archaeologists discussing rain, ants, and tesserae, and a learned paper about the material culture of an anti-link-road protest. It was quite interesting.

Dancing has added a lot to my life in all sorts of ways. I wouldn't have been doing this if I hadn't accepted a lift home, years ago, from a newish friend.
