lost, tomato, technology

In search of lost time.

Tomato soup made from fresh tomatoes and seasoned with a little chili and cardamom seeds.

Barrett Bonden and his blog Works Well comes to mind when I read an interview with Alain de Botton in today's Independent. "I find technology quite interesting and moving," he says, " because it is the result of so much labour and so much dedication. We're used to seeing a cathedral and thinking of all those people chiseling away at it. But we don't think the same way when we look at a radiator. What I am trying to do is to give the radiator a bit of glamour."

It's an old sun-dial on the wall of a house opposite the green in Groombridge, a village near Tunbridge Wells.

His Proust book is OK but in this instance I say: "Take your tanks off my lawn."

Come, come, BB. It was not so much a tank, more a barbers' shop quartet!
