The magnificant aerial photo of Milton Keynes

On 15th March this year I wrote a post about my city, Milton Keynes. Alongside I posted a wonderful photo of an aerial view of the city. (Take a look!) I'm happy to credit Ashley Flynn, who was the photographer.

Washminster will be returning shortly - with lots on

Elections (USA - Presidential; Senate; House of Representatives - and more!) - a nearby Parliamentary by-election in the UK (Corby)
