Check out my new night light:
Very nice! Is it one of those on which you can change the color? I love those kind of lamps, I've now got four of them :biggrin:: The Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Earth. My favorites are the Moon and Mars. I'll post a photo later. :smile:

Yes it changes color; four shades of blue.

I've now got four of them [...] I'll post a photo later.
I started with buying a small Moon lamp, and I liked it so much I started looking for planet lamps too.
I gave away my small Moon lamp to my mother, and bought a bigger one for myself. I really like the Moon and Mars lamp in particular, because they are quite realistic looking (more than what is shown in the photos below).

Here are my lamps (I can change them to quite many different colors with remote controls):

The Moon

Mars
(I think it looks a bit weird for some reason on this photo. It looks better in reality.)

Various Moon and planet lamps are available on Amazon e.g. here.

Some more nice wood picked up from the locations of dismantled indoor/outdoor bars for,

shelves. With one left natural. Although as can be seen it was varnished long ago. Of course they got an industrial cleaning with sodium hydroxide followed by sodium hypochlorite.

It's springtime in the city. Finally, after a long and cold winter!

Yes, should be well into spring now, but altough some stirrings it seems quite retarded. Unseasonable hailstorm left this on our terrace, the violence actually tore and broke quite a lot of leaves.

Last week I was ordering some new camera stuff on Amazon and I also put in a Mercury and a Venus lamp in the basket. I got them recently and I really like them too. :smile:

Edit: I remember I also ordered a Saturn lamp more than a year ago, from AliExpress I think, but it arrived badly damaged and I got refunded.

A purple 10 liter plastic bucket. Common household item. Photo worthy for the beautiful color. First one seen this color and only one among the always- red, blue or black ones from this village market

Part of the Greenville [South Carolina] Symphony Orchestra prepares for a concert last Sunday. This was our second excursion for a concert since the pandemic began last year; the first one was the previous Sunday.

C7E886A3-F824-4DFB-8DDC-0595A3F70A32.jpeg


The GSO normally performs six concerts per year, during fall through spring. This year they postponed the first one to March, and are cramming the rest in by the end of this month. The audience is limited to season-ticket holders and a small number of individual tickets. The audience and performers must all wear masks, even though most of the audience has probably been vaccinated by now.

Their usual venue is a large concert hall. This concert was at a church instead, perhaps because of a scheduling problem, and used a reduced-size string orchestra.

The TV screens advertise the next concert.

Ah you have now corrected yourself - you had me worried. I thought this

EAC3826E-745D-4E84-957A-F03DA4115000.jpeg


on our terrace, was an Azalea.

Well perhaps I should correct that too. Actually I thought the one behind was an Azalea. I thought the one in front was a Fuchsia. So I asked my wife and she told me yours was not an Azalea and the one in the picture is. Actually that both are. B...but, I asked, I thought,... I thought you'd told me that one in front was a Fuchsia!? No, she explained, it's the colour that is Fuchsia!

This could almost go in the Today I Learned thread. But it's here. There I will put something I'm going to learn about Bougainvilleas that not a lot of people know in a few days.
