The pic is of the ‘Luminata Lantern Parade’, held here at Green Lake in honour of the Fall Equinox… Isn’t that nice? I darkly suspect an Illuminati plot… ;-)

This evening at 19:29 PDT, old Sol crosses the Celestial Equator headed south…
Up here, the Sun will rise and set around 7:00 in the AM and PM (DST)…

St. Andrews cross – the Flag of Scotland

As Scots go to the polls today, they decide on whether they should remain a part of Great Britain or become a fully independent nation. With close to 100% voter registration, it appears that everyone 16 yo or older has the opportunity to have their say.

YEA = SPLIT
NAY = STAY

Here, the very English band The Clash put it pretty succinctly:

This latest spasm of ‘independence-ism’ is chiefly political. The Scots (bless them) can’t stand the Conservative (‘Tory’) party*. English PM David Cameron and the current British government are Tory of course, else no vote today.

Being of both Scots and English heritage, I’m rather divided on the issue. Heart says ‘Split’, head says ‘Stay’…

Either way, it’s way better than bloodying up a perfectly good sheep pasture over the issue! We’ll know by late tonight or tomorrow.


* The British ‘Conservatives’ are nothing like the American variety. We would likely classify them as ‘right of center’ Democrats.
