I just changed the header on our blog to be more representative of the season.  I realized that the last time I posted – back on March 24th – there was still snow on the ground so the picture of our house covered in snow was appropriate.  No longer!  I’ve picked something a little more spring-like.  It’s a pic of the big tree in front of our house which overhangs our porch.  Eventually we are going to have to trim it back – but we’re putting it off for another year.

This incredible video is 4 hours of Aurora Borealis compressed into 3 minutes.  A Swedish photographer used 2464 raw images to create this time lapse video.  See the whole story over on io9.com.

And new Stereophonics…

I’m particularly excited by the new album from Stereophonics “Graffiti on the Train”.  Stereophonics have released eight studio albums, five of which topped the UK album charts.  “Graffiti on the Train” debuted at number three.  Unfortunately, they don’t tour often in North America…although I remain hopeful!

And here’s the non-acoustic version of their song Indian Summer.

With this new album release, Stereophonics are getting lots of media coverage in the UK – I find and read as much of it as I can online.
