it's about that time

it's about that time It's about that time when the swallows think of leaving. By early September, most swallows are preparing to migrate. They flutter about restlessly, and often gather on telegraph wires. Most leave the UK during September, with early broods of youngsters being the first to go. But a few stragglers may hang around into October.  The return journey to Africa takes about six weeks. Swallows from different parts of Europe fly to different destinations. Ours end up in the very south. They travel down through western France and eastern Spain into Morocco, before crossing the Sahara Desert and the Congo rainforest – finally reaching South Africa and Namibia. Swallows migrate during daylight, flying quite low and covering about 320 km (200 miles) each day. At night they roost in huge flocks in reed-beds at traditional stopover spots. Since swallows feed entirely on flying insects, they don’t need to fatten up before leaving, but can snap up their food along the way. Nonetheless, many die of starvation. If they survive, they can live for up to sixteen years. ...

time is on my side

time is on my side time is on my side - rolling stones When Richard Hamilton saw news photographs of Mick Jagger and art dealer Robert Fraser in the back of a police van during their trial for drugs offences at Chichester Court in June 1967, he decided to create a modern history painting. What he produced was Swingeing London, a painting and later a print that takes a historical moment and holds it up for scrutiny. He copied one of the photographs, adding real metal for the handcuffs and a replica of the police van's window frame. Although handcuffed together, the two men in it are reacting totally differently to their public ordeal. Jagger, in the foreground in the green jacket and tie that he wore to evoke Oscar Wilde, looks small, terrified. His hand shielding his face reduces him to just his lips. Fraser could not be more different. In the shadows and behind his shades, he looks almost threatening, His raised hand beckons. Jagger is young and frightened. Fraser is harder, older, even gangster-like. my home town - I was there - I am here - time is on my side - yes it is!! ...
