Get out and see it.  Last night was the peak of the full moon for September; the Harvest Moon.  The autumn moons of September, October and November are the ones most steeped in folklore.  For good reason, they are beautiful.

An astronomer, biologist, an engineer and a mathematician were crossing the border into Scotland from England on a train when they saw a field with a black sheep in it.

The astronomer said, “Look–all sheep on Earth are black.”

The biologist said, “Look, in Scotland the sheep are black.”

The engineer replied, “No, in Scotland some of the sheep are black.”

The mathematician rolled his eyes to heaven and said, very patiently, “In Scotland, there exists at least one field, in which there is at least one sheep which is black on at least one side.”

I am leaving moblog alone.  They seem to be having a few problems.  The main, and most annoying, problem being the fact that they switched off their MMS service.  So it seems that I have been sending my last pictures to a dead number.  The picture, and the pence that paid for them, have slipped quietly into the either.

So, I have retrieved some of them from the last month and posted them here:
