Snow - No Show

Yesterday it tried to snow in Truro - alas, it failed.  All we got was wet, splatty flakes that dissolved on contact and pretty much the same in St Ives.  It was bitter, though - 4c (39.2f).  Balmy in comparison to the US, but bloody chilly 'ere.

So, is it going to snow?

Tim Burton - The End IS In Sight!


Well, it's been a bloody long haul.  I started this essay on the 7th January (as previously discussed, I DID have extentuating circumstances).  I have written it, but need to cut swathes into it - lots of judicial editing needed (approximatley 500 words need shaving off).  I have focused primarily on Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Sleepy Hollow, but have thrown in Corpse Bride, Beetlejuice and both Frankenweenies in for good measure.  After this will be the PP.  I have done at least a third of it and when the essay is in the bag, the PP should be straight forward.
