    What email links at top right? All I see is blogroll and you aren’t on it?

    @raven: In the Desktop version of the site, click on the “Quick Links” thing on the upper right, click the “Contact a front pager” in the drop down, then click on TimF.

    Easy peasy. :-)

    Cheers,
    Scott.

    @raven: He’s listed in the Contact a front pager pulldown list (Quick links). It’s a bit buried.

    Liking the standing stones in UK. We’ve been trying to schedule a tour of barrow graves and standing stones through UK and Brittany for two years, and haven’t been able to make it work yet. But in 2018, I’m thinking we will make it happen somehow, if the crash hasn’t happened yet.

    Anyway, great picture, how did you come to visit there? What do you know about this stone circle? I know we don’t know much about them in general.

    So many great archaeological sites, and we know all kinds of irrelevant details about stuff, but nothing about the important things, what the believed, why they built/created/did the complex difficult things we can see today.

    ETA2 But what could anyone deduce about the VietNam Memorial, one of the most successful monuments of DC.

    Lovely photos, Tim, thanks for posting, and thanks to the readers for sharing. The first one is the sort of landscape I always find peace in, odd as that may sound.

    I love Castlerigg Stone Circle. We were there, oh, nearly 30 years ago now, and what struck me was that it wasn’t at the highest elevation, looming over anything, but the most central — or maybe focused would be a better word — place. You can use the Google Maps – Street View function to view it, of course.

    OT, but the kindle version of DEEP AS A TOMB is on sale right now at Amazon for 99 cents. That’s a total surprise to me. I don’t know if my publisher or Amazon set that up.

    @Iowa Old Lady: Wait. Maybe I see that price because I bought a ppb to send to a winner of a Goodreads giveaway. Hm. Go back to your regularly scheduled political agonizing.
