A few pot boilers. Fairly interesting subjects.
For the 'Drowning in Wrinklies' (sounds like a Sioux carehome orderly, no?) piece the article's about how the number of those aged 65+ is expected to double in the next 25 years. Supposedly, a good thing for all, but with serious consequences for the way we organise our societies and economies.
The other's on the subject of Shrove Tuesday- or Pancake Day
The Brits are a little more restrained than the Americans when it comes to crepes- we tend to have a few with a sprinkling of sugar and a dash of lemon juice rather than what I understand is the traditional US portion (a stack of 30 with maple syrup, butter and bacon all served from a defibrillator cart).
Happy New Year
Happy New Year, Citizens of the Drawgerverse

Am still pleasantly bleary from the Xmas break. I'll start getting anxious soon enough about not enough work trickling in but for the moment I'm enjoying the lull.

The first pic here (a nod to Frank King/ Chris Ware) is a piece for SJB (here for PLANADVISER) on the general theme of 2009 and time passing. Refreshingly non-apocalyptic in comparison to some of the imagery I've had to generate for what the new year might have in store.

The second's another one for Mrs B: PLANSPONSOR this time on absences from work (here, a military posting).
