Prince Philip

There has been a fair amount of media coverage of the Duke of Edinburgh’s 90th birthday tomorrow*. It reminded me of some pictures I took about 30 years ago of him partaking in one of his favourite sports at Lowther in Cumbria…

*I believe he usually celebrates his birthday on 28th of May which was the date in the Julian calendar in use in Greece at the time of his birth, 10th of June is his date of birth in the Gregorian calendar.

Google Doodle

To mark the 96th anniversary of Les Paul‘s birth today’s Google doodle is a playable electric guitar.

US users can even record a 30 second tune.
