Presumably these are solar powered candles;

Or, at least organic beeswax candles.



This is a bit of an experiment: the computer still thinks it’s 2008.

Wouldn’t that be nice.


Thanks to all the Stock Artists.

“It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”

I thought this was from Proverbs; but, apparently it is often misattributed.


According to The Quote Investigator, the earliest known source is from, The Supreme Conquest and Other Sermons Preached in America, by W. L. Watkinson (William Lonsdale Watkinson), Sermon XIV: The Invincible Strategy, (Romans: xii, 21),  Pages 206, 217 and 218, Fleming H. Revell Company, New York. 


“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Romans 12:21, New International Version



The John Rylands Library is a late-Victorianneo-Gothic building on Deansgate in Manchester, England.

The library opened to the public in 1900. It was founded by Enriqueta Augustina Rylands in memory of her husband, John Rylands.[4] 

The John Rylands Library and the library of the University of Manchester merged in July 1972 into the John Rylands University Library of Manchester; and, is now part of The University of Manchester Library.

The music video for Head Over Heels was filmed in June 1985, showing lead singer Roland Orzabal's attempts to get the attention of a librarian (Joan Densmore), in the library.

It was filmed at the Emmanuel College Library in TorontoOntario.[2]

There are some absolutely brilliant library parody music videos.

It’s really impressive how much people put into these.

Back to the library! Libraries are great, something for everyone!

This made me think In The Library...
