A Skyline For Teri . . .

This is a skyline for Teri. This is Strathclyde Country Park looking west from the north shore.
It's probably not the type of skyline Teri was looking for, but everything else I have to hand is not very wide angle. This is a peaceful if not a terribly interesting shot. I shall continue to look.

For Special K...

For Special K. Please don't woodchip me.

Sans Hope.

Sometimes, when lost in the woods, the path we choose is the wrong one.
I guess I'm in a scary shit phase. When hope is gone, all we have is fear.

A Repost - Lullaby by William Blake.

O for a voice like thunder, and a tongue
To drown the throat of war! - When the senses
Are shaken, and the soul is driven to madness,
Who can stand? When the souls of the oppressed
Fight in the troubled air that rages, who can stand?
When the whirlwind of fury comes from the
Throne of God, when the frowns of his countenance
Drive the nations together, who can stand?
When Sin claps his broad wings over the battle,
And sails rejoicing in the flood of Death;
When souls are torn to everlasting fire,
And fiends of Hell rejoice upon the slain,
O who can stand? O who hath caused this?
O who can answer at the throne of God?
The Kings and Nobles of the Land have done it!
Hear it not, Heaven, thy Ministers have done it!

Saucy Pictures!

Janna posted about the different meanings certain descriptions have between the USA & UK.

One was Tomato Ketchup in the USA being called Tomato Sauce in the UK. Although either description can be used and Ketchup is the printed label description, I have always called it Tomato Sauce.

Possibly the difficulty arose because of Brown Sauce, and Tomato Sauce was called such just to differentiate the two.

The question that was asked then, is what is the USA version of Tomato Sauce called in the UK. In the pictures below, at least one brand describes the contents as Crushed Tomatoes. I have also seen cans of Tomato Purée and tubes of Tomato Paste, but I think further investigation is required.

I'm sorry the photographs are not too clear. I'm never happy taking pictures in a supermarket because of the possibilities for mis-understanding.

Is this guy a Blogger or a Food-Fetishist?
