Hmm, I'm thinking about building a (possibly 10 string) solid body electric mandolin. Of course, I have no tools. no workshop and no woodworking skills so it is probably a stillborn thought. But it's a thought. I would want to do it so that the neck extended right through the instrument with a trussrod all the way. Gibson style head (not sure how to do that with 10 strings though). Not sure about the body either, if in fact it needs one at all : a plank stlye instrument might be interesting. Too solid a body would be too heavy. I see it all in very pale wood - mandolins are usually quite dark. A pale fingerboard would probably get too dirty though even if it looked interesting.

The Copshaw Common Riding takes place on the festival weekend. This is a mickey take of the various ridings that take place at other borders villages where they are very po-faced and serious about it. However, I suspect that the Copshaw Riding will end up the same way in a few years as it too hardens into tradition and people forget that it was meant to be funny.

More information on my family photograph - it is my great-great-grandfather John Thompson Lindsay (where the name comes from, don't you know), his wife Betsy (Prentice), their sons James and Prentice and their daughter (my great-grandmother) Helen Thompson Lindsay. The photograph must have been taken in the mid to late 1890s. My father is having a big scanning session of some photos that have turned up so I will be putting more of them up - there are some splendid pictures.

I just noticed that Firefox is supporting the acronym tag in HTML properly. Nice one. The real problem of course is that people use it when they should be using the abbr tag because they don't know the difference between an acronym and an abbreviation.

I must admit to not being particularly upset at the possible destruction by fire of Tracy Emin's "Tent". Muhc more interesting are the questions "How did a major art repository burn down like that?" and "Why didn't they have a list of everything in the building?".
