Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

Chicken or the Egg: which came first?

Photo source: Gizmodo

The picture above shows The "Backpack House", apparently not a serious idea but an artistic concept according to this article from Gizmodo.

As soon as I saw the photograph a little bell rang in the back of my head; it did not have to ring for long before I recalled Le Musée du Quai Branly in Paris. The museum is mainly devoted to ethnic art from around the world, but of course it was not ethnic art that the "Backpack House" brought to mind as the photo below (I hope) demonstrates.

Plagiarism? I suppose we shall never know...

Until the next time
