All Change (and a small request)

Life seems to be full of changes at the moment and so it occured to me yesterday, that maybe it was time to make some slight changes to my LJ, as a result, the vacuum cleaner theme has now gone.

I've walked past this pub, almost everyday since I moved here, and although it's closed and doesn't even look the sort of place I'd like to go, it's name just appealed to me. So, yesterday I took a photo:

Thinking I should use it on LJ somewhere, it strangely took quite a while to come up with the idea of having it as a userpic, but there it is now.

As a result, yesterday, I deleted most of my current userpics and started again (it was good to have a complete overhaul of them, although I did keep Henry).

However, going back over my recent posts, there have been a number about the local area around Old Kent Road, which I'd like to have a userpic for. I know exactly what it should be, but don't have one, so I'll pass this out as a request to blogosphere

If someone with a standard UK monopoly set could either scan or photo the Title Deed card for Old Kent Road and email it to me I would be very grateful.

How 'bout a tank userpic?

I'm not sure it would give the right impression of me.

I'm generally not a big fan of things designed to blow lots of people up.

Understood. I guess I was thinking of the pink tank, but that tank isn't pink anymore, is it?

--As opposed to the think tank.

Named after the song?

Gosh, I'm ignorant

*turns to google for enlightenment*

Which one, the 1643 one or the 1975 one?

Could be I suppose, but given it's closed I don't see any obvious way of checking.

And you a folkie! You should be ashamed ;-)

The Diggers song was the one I was thinking of, not the other one (which I've never heard of). But calling it the 1975 one is a bit disingenuous when it's also been around since the 1600s!

*hangs head in shame appropriately*


A modernized version of the song called "The World Turned Upside Down" (not to be confused with the 17th century ballad of the same title) was composed by Leon Rosselson in 1975

Would make it the 1975 one? Even if it is based on a 17th century ballard.
