Quotation of the day ~ George Carlin: Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

I wrote the other day about Lindisfarne, the fabulous holy isle off the coast of Northumbria (from which the great 1970's English folk group Lindisfarne took its name

And i started to think about the place.  As i wrote, i spent a small part of my childhood there.  My uncle and auntie ran a pub on the island, lived upstairs from it, and for a while my parents and i, a mere infant, shared the living space.  Had my little sister been born yet? I honestly don't remember.

Here's Lindisfarne on the map:  


Although i retain a (very) vague mental image of the pub itself,  i have no memory of the island, so i did the Google Image Search thing, and found some fabulous photographs of the place.  I'd love to go back there some day.

 And here's the group Lindisfarne performing "Meet Me On The Corner"
