Nearly a hundred years of lies. Image source is https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/history/chm/research/current/nhshistory/e... It's from 1929, so I'm sure it's out of copyright.

El Duende

More from the archives. Not a repost, as far as I can tell. Duende is the hardest word to explain I ever came across in Spanish. This one is for all the friends I made amongst students and barflies. Image source Flickr.com: photographer Albertus 82: licence CC-BY-NC 2.0

The Last Man on the Moon

Another old one. Only posted at all because it contains the word 'pandemic'. Sci-Fi. Not fair just to warn you in the summary, I know, but maybe the picture's a clue. Image free for non commercial use from freesvg.org

laughter in the dark. I hope it makes you feel better, because it does me - and I expect it does everyone with any sense who reads it. Brava!

The ever quirky hudsonmoon tries something different today and by golly it works well. That's why it's our Facebook and Twitter Pick of the Day. Why not share or retweet if you like it too?
