Last week on BBC 4 there was a documentary " The Pendle Witch Child" presented by poet Simon Armitage, based around Jennet Device the child who testified against her family who were subsequently executed as witches. Aside from some rather annoying animations depicting some of the historical characters it's a great overview of the Pendle Witches and the trials socio-political implications as well as Jennet's own demise. IT also singles out the first forensic investigation into a witch trial, where science and superstition collide.

Whilst fannying around un-riotous Brighton waiting for Alex to finish work I inevitably found myself in Infinity Foods looking at the packages of grains pulses and variants which for some reason I find endless fascinating. I will admit I have always liked the branding and ethos of Dove Farms flour but these two handsome packages caught my eye and I felt they deserved a post. Very Angie Lewin.

Summer 2011 Trajectory Public Forum
This year, on the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first manned space flight and the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl Disaster, we pack our Geiger counters and
spacesuits and chart a course from the atomic to the cosmic to investigate the unknown fields between nature and artifice.
Joining us for the Atomic to the Cosmic forum will be an ensemble of artists, authors, scientists and designers. Through the lens of these two events we will re-examine our preservationist and conservationist attitudes toward the natural world and spin tales of the ecologically fragile and the technologically obsolete.
To be the first to enter the cosmos, to engage, single-handed, in an unprecedented duel with nature-could one dream of anything more!

I recently found a booklet entitled '2000 Years of Houses'...totally allured by the orange font and illustrations it turned out to be a informational handout from the Building Societies Association (1979) loosely explaining how you can borrow to buy your own home and the importance of saving.....The Great But Ugly Victorian Age?
