A stony beach and dark blue water under a clear blue sky.

Going for a morning perambulation on Shoreham beach.

A group of musicians gathered around a table in a pub playing on fiddles and accordions.

Good tunes last night.

John playing whistle and James playing a Greek bouzouki in the corner of a pub.

Enjoying the classic Mary Bergin/Alec Finn combo of whistle and bouzouki.

Spiky green chestnut shells hanging from a chestnut tree with blue sky and a green meadow in the background.


A super-cute little brown-haired dog with an adorable face full of character (and tongue out). A large white short-haired ‘doo of some kind that looks like it’s smiling.

Still thinking about these good doggos from Bark In The Park yesterday.

A beautiful black and white collie dressed as a pirate with a cape and a hat.

It’s Bark In The Park today!!!

A fluffy tabby cat all curled up indoors, with its eyes closed, looking very content indeed. A fluffy tabby cat lying on its back outdoors looking very content.

Not my cat, but I’m very fond of her.

A beautiful fluffy tabby cat sits primly on the decking in the garden looking up.

Looking down a path surrounded by verdant vegetation.

A walk in the woods.

Jessica standing on a hillside overlooking a wide expanse of countryside.

Up on Devil’s Dyke.

A table full of large plates of traditional pub grub like fish’n’chips and a ploughman’s, with smaller plates of olives and Padron peppers. Jessica in a pub garden with a table full of food. Quaint half-timbered houses with an old red telephone box in front of them and green hills behind.

Pub lunch in Fulking.

Jessica sitting outdoors with the sea in the background and a big seafood platter in the foreground, filled with crab, prawns and oysters.

Let websites framebust out of native apps | Holovaty.com

Adrian brings an excellent historical perspective to the horrifying behaviour of Facebook’s in-app browsers:

Somewhere along the way, despite a reasonably strong anti-framing culture, framing moved from being a huge no-no to a huge shrug. In a web context, it’s maligned; in a native app context, it’s totally ignored.

Yup, frames are back—but this time they’re in native apps—with all their shocking security implications:

The more I think about it, the more I cannot believe webviews with unfettered JavaScript access to third-party websites ever became a legitimate, accepted technology. It’s bad for users, and it’s bad for websites.

By the way, this also explains that when you try browsing the web in an actual web browser on your mobile device, every second website shoves a banner in your face saying “download our app.” Browsers offer users some protection. In-app webviews offer users nothing but exploitation.

Portrait of a beautiful brown dog with a brown nose and soulful brown eyes sitting in a pub garden in front of any ivy-covered wall.

My buddy Brody is very handsome (and A Very Good Boy).

Waves of yellowing grass covering the hillsides under ominous grey clouds.

A field in England.

A rock band in full blast in front of a sweaty audience with stage lights illuminating the musicians.

Danced my ass off to @TheAfghanWhigs tonight!

Jessica wearing a hand-knitted shawl standing in front of a beautiful field of vines. Appetisers against the beautiful backdrop of the vineyard. A seasonal tomato-based dish with a refreshing glass of white wine with a picturesque valley in the background. A delicious dish of sea bass.

Taking @wordridden to Rathfinney for her birthday.

A vivid red rose in a church graveyard. A charming old church with an overgrown churchyard and easy trees on either side. A pint of refreshing ale on tiled tabletop in an outdoor courtyard. The glass is labelled Long Man: naturally excellent beer. A thatched-roofed half-timber house in the background, grave markers in the foreground, and trees all around.

Out and about in Alfriston.
