Squint and the neon of Folkestone looks like Vegas. I say ‘squint’ – I mean shut your eyes and take a lot of drugs.
‘Atheism is not a philosophy; it is not even a view of the world; it is simply an admission of the obvious. In fact, ‘atheist’ is a term that should not ever exist. No one ever needs to identify himself as a ‘non astrologer’ or a ‘non-alchemist’. We do not have words for people who doubt that Elvis is still alive or that aliens traversed the galaxy only to molest ranchers and their cattle. Atheism is nothing more than the noises reasonable people make in the presence of unjustified religious beliefs. An atheist is simply a person who believes that the 260 million Americans (87 percent of the population) claiming to ‘never doubt the existence of God’ should be obliged to present evidence for his existence-and, indeed, for his BENEVOLENCE, given the relentless destruction of innocent human beings we witness in the world each day.’
–Sam Harris, ‘Letter to a Christian Nation’
Police in Folkestone. Irrefutable proof that there was at least one Policeman walking around town… at least once in the last week.

Rudbeckia fulgida, commonly known as Black-eyed Susan, Brilliant Coneflower, Eastern Coneflower, or Orange Coneflower, is a perennial plant native to eastern North America. Actually, this one was in Kent, UK.
A Turkey, in Rotorua. Shot my the Missus. She likes Turkeys… roasted.
Happy Star Wars Day! May the 4th Be With You 🙂
