Am I the only person (probably not) that see’s the Ronald Regan reference in this ……

Watched Electric Dreams last night. Ridiculous story of a love triangle between an architect, a computer and a cellist but hey, it was the 80’s, America was a real superpower and California was at the centre of a computing revolution that was set to change the world. The whole styling and exudes optimism. I have to admit the theme song is one of my favourite 80’s tunes.
If you have 2 hours (yes it’s a long flick) and want a few laughs this is the flick for you, The acting or directing are not going to blow you away, but as rom-com’s go it is a good one.

Nice write-up, I was only wondering a few days ago if there was a map of this. I hope it’s kept update.

Gertrude of Arabia, the Woman Who Invented Iraq
The story of the British intelligence agent who rigged an election, installed a king loyal to the British, drew new borders—and gave us today’s ungovernable country.

Great older article in The Daily Beast about Iraq at the start of the 20th century.

Old Photos of Irish Archaeological Sites from the British Royal Collection

I recently stumbled across some fantastic old images of Irish archaeological sites, which are now stored at the British Royal Collection. The photos were taken in 1861 and 1903 during two royal visits to Ireland, when firstly Queen Victoria and subsequently her son Edward VII toured the country…..

Some fantastic research and photos once again by irisharchaeology.ie … see more olde worlde photos here.
