This is it, the last of my interesting UK pics. I have 280 more nice pics but they're all typical tourist stuff, beautiful architecture and countryside, that sort of thing. Which is interesting, but not jabberous.
Here's a founding father of Chester UK. With a pigeon pooping on his head.
Here is the public toilet in the park where the statue stands. Check out those faux marble ceramic urinals and the brass plumbing. It's always a pleasant surprise to encounter a public toilet that is not a hellhole.
In closing, I must say I agree more with eeTeeD than hemlockman. I don't think the British are any more smart or cultured or sane than Americans.
As for the kids' books - not much more to report really. The thing that actually may be happening (eventually) is children's COMICS. Like my Nickelodeon work, not like a true children's book. Which is cool, just an unexpected result from this endeavor. I'll still persue the books, but more comics are on the front burner right now.
