Bank Holiday Monday

Day off work, yeah but only in the employment sense. I'm still in the process of getting the area ready for my new greenhouse. I have already started by building the base for it and the door (Just to get things moving) The area for it will need leveled but I'm unsure if I went flag stones, bricks or just the straight forward earth... Whichever I choose it will still need leveled. So I'm using the garage to store the pre-built stuff.
What I have got as a new addition to the garden is a solar powered bird bath (More like a bird shower) but is nice and if we get some sunshine during the summer we will have loads of clean birds flying about my garden (If the cat allows it, that is)

May Day Parade

Today my LSD and I decided to hit the City Centre for a dander and some lunch. Thought, bank holiday weekend there shouldn't be much traffic. Great clear roads until we hit the centre. The PSNI had roads around the centre closed as the Union's May Day Parade was taking part. It didn't take long. a few bands a few people walking behind them carrying banners and flags and one guy carrying a Russian flag (I have to say he looked like he wasn't old enough even to work, let alone be in a union)
The City was also hiving with street entertainers, from the Dirty White Rabbit playing the keyboard at Cornmarket to comedy groups, musicians and this musical trio I saw in Victoria Square... The City Centre is the place to spend a Saturday believe me......

Bill Posters

I wonder which one of these two defacers is called Bill?. As if the city isn't bad enough with litter bugs, we also have to put up with guys like this who have nothing better to do than stick up posters usually for unknown music groups that you need to blocked to listen too, and more than likely the posters end up blowing around the streets and left for someone else to clean up.

Anyway, if guys like these are caught breaking the by-laws of the city, they should be not just fined but made to do community service by removing posters from around the city centre for a start.
