Elizabethan London

Elizabethan London
Tyburn was an infamous execution spot west of London, used since medieval times. The Tyburn "tree" - a unique, multi-person gallows - erected in 1571 became a popular public spectacle, drawing crowds of thousands.Tyburn Tree blog is less blood-thirsty but hopefully topical, interesting and informative, if slightly bent to my personal topics of interest - books, writing, history, technology, with a smattering of politics and dash of pop culture, science and the downright strange. So "take a ride to Tyburn" and see what happens...

Now hitting 63+ hours with no power. It's a cold, dark and difficult xmas for sure, and we are trading in our planned turkey dinner for pizza as the power outage continues.

On the other hand the iced over foliage looks nice....when its not falling on your power lines or your car.

Places to go...

IO9 offered up a selection of these fabulous interstellar travel posters recently. Or at least it did until the article and the link mysteriously vanished, otherwise I would point you right at them.

So instead I point you to the artist Tyler Nordgren's site which contains said glorious illustrative pieces....Which is probably the best step.
