Antiques Roadshow Comes To E17?

Rumours on twitter suggest it might be time to start hunting through your cellars and attics while practising your ‘i’m not at all disappointed the so-called family heirloom I’ve dragged all the way here is only worth £30″ faces – they’re saying the Antiques Roadshow is coming to Walthamstow in August 2014. Keep an eye on the BBC Antiques Roadshow site for further details (if or when they become available).


Happy Blustery Xmas!

Looks like we’re going to have a wet and windy holiday (have a look at this live world wind map). Hopefully we’ll get the chance to meet up at the local on xmas eve or through the holiday period, but if you can’t make it out because of the weather here’s some live webcams where you can watch other people geting wet and blown away.

Even in rough weather and with speeding traffic they still flock to recreate the Beatles album cover:- Abbey Road Zebra Crossing.

Why anyone would want to watch this I don’t know but here’s Tower Bridge live.

This used to have streaming video of Leicester Square but seems to have reverted to a basic 1990-style stills webcam:- Leicester Square Cam.

TfL cams watching you daily via the BBC London traffic cams site.

— Or just watch some Pandas apparently doing life in a maximum security prison.

Seasons Greetings and a Happy, Peaceful 2014
