And now for something completely different

As I mentioned, Stephen continues his European jaunt with a couple of weeks in Cambridge. It was snowing, and he was out and about and took these pics of the spiky pillar box! I see from 2005 that it is  on Priory Road and the Riverside, and it was always one of my favourites.

Great how the snow knows to stay within the spikes, eh? It looks like icing on a rather dangerous cake. 

I hadn't noticed before how irregular the top is. Stuck on by some amateur, or bashed around a bit? Ah well, it's well over a hundred years old and still standing!

Snowy punts, as well. 

Were any of the Cambridge peeps at the Science Festival yesterday? Stephen got roped in to doing some demonstrations there about washboard road bumps. I understand he will come home with a flashy purple T-shirt. That was a lot of fun when we were there in 2006! The University of Toronto makes a valiant attempt, but the Cambridge affair was really good.
