I managed to sneak out and have quick walk this morning, before the rain started.
Despite the windy conditions I managed to photograph a Scottish Bluebell - Currac-cuthaige - Campanula rotundifolia. It wasn't easy as the flower heads are big in comparison to the long, thin stems. A sneeze from 100m is enough to make them shake for 5 minutes.
BTW these are known as Harebells in England.
No guesses. Question too hard?
Kurt Cobain (Nirvana) was a huge Pixies fan, and he was influenced by them when writing the material for the Nevermind album, including "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Cobain was also quoted as saying that the album sound should be like: "The Knack and the Bay City Rollers getting molested by Black Flag and Black Sabbath."
The mix of influences for Nevermind obviously worked, as it became a huge international success, selling over 30 million copies.
Lots of chickens crossing the road at Pasir Ris Park today in Singapore, 12 July 2020. 🙂 To be more specific, these are Jungle Fowl (Galus galus), rather than the domestic chicken.

I've had my Internet access needs satisfied using 3G/4G services for many years. Previously, I had a generous 40GB monthly allowance. Over the course of years I only once or twice needed to exceed my allowance.
So, it is quite a surprise to me what a difference having an unlimited allowance has made to my online usage. I've only had an unlimited service for a few months, but already I'm consistently exceeding 40GB, and relying much more on the network, rather than local storage.
I'm a fan of the original, The Terminator (1984), and of the sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). Both of these films had someting original and inventive about them.
I suspect the later films are just cashing-in on the film franchise name.
“My sons love hunting,” he told the publication. “They’re hunters and they’ve become good at it. I am not a believer in hunting and I’m surprised they like it.”
—President Donald J Trump
Is hunting for conservation good?

I didn't see the news of Vera Lynn's death, back in June. Very sad to see the passing of a WWII icon, and the "forces' sweetheart", but she achieved the grand old-age of 103.
"There'll be love and laughter
And peace ever after.
Tomorrow, when the world is free"
