The obliquity of the ecliptic

This year has stood still for me since about March, it came as a shock to walk past a laurel bush today on my way downtown and smell the scent of bygone summers in Italy.

On a whim I went to the Skybeach, a waterless inland beach atop the Kaufhof parking garage in beautiful downtown Stuttgart. It's the first time I have been there, though it has been open for five years now (summer only as far as I know). Very pleasant indeed, though the loud music might become annoying on repeated exposure; this might replace the terrace of the Kunstmuseum as my favourite chilling spot.

And now, a little work on my database.

Happy Solstice, my dears. Enjoy the weekend.

Ecliptic: Me?! Oblique?! You're the one with the wonky axis. And you spelled my name wrong.

:-P

Sand doesn't make a beach, you really do need some water attached to it.
