using face recognition ain't all that... yet

Faces in iPhoto is suggesting that these goats are people I know. Come to think of it some of them do look familiar...

uncovering old lath and plaster

This morning this was a blue-painted wall which collapsed in less than two minutes in two almighty thumps revealing all this lovely lath and plaster work. This surely hasn't been seen since 1879 when the house was built and is a rather beautiful piece of handiwork. Sadly it will all be stripped out and replaced tomorrow with something less interesting and which probably won't last nearly as long.... but I am reliably told it has to be done. And me and the builder are listening mainly to The Silver Seas.
