I like the pool here very much.  The hot whirlpool is in the South Transept.
Kenneth: 'If you're so hot, you can tell me how to say she has ideas above her station.'
Brian:'Oh yes, I forgot. It's fairly easy, old boy.
Elle a des idees au-dessus de sa gare.'
Kenneth: 'Idiot.  It's not that kind of station.'

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen.
How delightful- a place where I needn't be polite to the vicar's wife.

Arabella Periscope, what a divine bathing pool. Please tell us where it is located!

Up til now, my idea of an atmospheric bath was


but I see I must broaden my horizons.

I remain yours,

I saw this, which looks interesting



Still, I think miss Periscope's entry is quite clearly the best of the three.

A friendly game of 'Kraken water polo' (nominal bets allowed) as they are such playful creatures if treated with kindness.

Prof. Cecily -- Is that a picture of the Roman baths at Bath?

I love underground pools.  Very phantom-of-the-opera.  Perfect for krakens!

 

Maets;  I am surprised at Stephen Hawking.  His disease should have killed him many, many years ago; he is rather a scientific anomaly himself.  He is not able to explain his own survival in scientific terms.

I know its naughty but I do have a desire to re program Mr Hawkins speech synthesizer to say 'pieces of eight' whatever he puts into it, just something about the name Hawkins!

He'd probably love that!

Arabella Periscope, yes, it's Bath. Where was your latest photo taken? Istambul?

I remain yours,

As an Absurdist, both artistically, politically, and philosophically, I have to at least say when they burn us I will be sizzling with you!
I made this video to some up my views on religion.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. its a bit too off the wall and long-winded for most people.

'Christ died for your sins'...
So will your local church pay your parking tickets as they are his representatives on earth?

My next major exhibition is in a former church, a couple of years ago I exhibited there and it's amazing to be able to put something like a realistic painting of a 'vesica Pisces' in an old church. 

Rigging a Tesla to the lightning conductor is probably a bit ambitious but I'm sure I can think of a few interesting things to do (Kraken in the font?) and a bottle of Absinthe for the private view is a start.

Definitely off the wall, but fun and obvious a lot of effort.
