minifig recommended your blog to me - i think its brilliant, and have put in a link from my own blog.

Your Halloween post reminds me...I went on a Stop the War march on Halloween. I was teamed up with two other people, carrying pumpkins with the words 'stop','the' and 'war' carved onto them. I was carrying the one that said 'war', but in the march I ended up getting separated from the other two. Judiciously deciding that a STW march was probably not the best place to carry a pumpkin with the word 'WAR' on it, I left it under one of the many military-type statues. Never thought i'd find myself walking down Whitehall with a pumpkin, though...

Anyways, keep up the good work with the blog - its important, informative and entertaining, all rolled into one.

Cheers for your kind comments - though I doubt very much that my blog can be described as 'important' or even really that 'informative'. There are loads of far more important and informative blogs than mine.

Yeah - in 2002, the Stop the War Coalition in Britain organised a national day of civil disobedience on Halloween. In Leeds, ours could have been a lot better to be honest - about 50 students occupied the local BBC office at lunchtime and in the evening about 400 people tried to stop some traffic on the outskirts of tow. However, we faced a lot of police (who arrested a local vicar) and didn't really make much impact. Still, we learnt to have protests in the town centre after that.

However, the advantage is that Halloween will always bring back memories of anti-war protests - which probably prompted me to hunt around for images of anti-war pumpkins on the net in the first place...
