The Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre
has finally got its official lettering. Our photographer caught the two lads on the right trying to spell the above title in Irish - which can't be an easy task!
So far the arts centre has been a great success and some of the exhibitions have been very interesting, particularly the current showing of artefacts from the Country Park Museum.
|The burning hills of the Roe Valley|
Local readers may have noticed that no matter in which direction one looks, rather a lot of smoke is rising into the sky. However, there is no need to panic, because all the fires seem to be deliberate and well planned.
Apparently if a satellite picture of a farm shows too much whin or other non-productive vegetation, the affected land does not attract the usual grants. Hence, what does the canny farmer do to protect his income? ........ You've guessed it!
It makes quite a stink though.
|The missing planets|
Earlier this month the 'Limavady Sentinel' newspaper published one of our photographs. Unfortunately - due to the printing process - it didn't show the promised planets Jupiter and Mercury, as seen here last week.
So that disappointed readers who have contacted us can see what they have been missing, we have uploaded a large copy of the photograph to Picasaweb. Just click on the link below.
The same site also contains some oldish photographs of Limavady.
|Finding your glasses|
Our far-sighted reporter came across this informative sign the other day. It's at Howard Caskie's shop - a well known optician in Limavady and elsewhere in the area.
It occurred to our reporter, that if you are at the shop to buy a pair of glasses in order to be able to read signs again, this particular notice will not be of much use to you - unless of course you spot it on your way out!
Here is a link to our famous silly sign collection which records similar incidences of imaginative information manipulation.
