Well not posted for a few days but it has been a bit dull and grey and damp since the snow went. Yung joined the Barmy Army. went for a curry thats it.

We were just trying to recover our old and lost Blogger spot but its a bit non do!

Crazy we found the pictures of ALf’s visit to help out Compton Verney’s Volcano Exhibition last March.

Sunday 21st March 2010. Volcano Iceland

An Icelandic volcano, dormant for 200 years, has erupted, ripping a 1km-long fissure in a field of ice.

The volcano near Eyjafjallajoekull glacier began to erupt just after midnight, sending lava a hundred metres high.

ALf took literally the words of OLD FART after he had told us that Stephen the director of Compton Verney had request that if it could be arranged for a volcano to erupt somewhere in the world. Just a little one that it may help the future exhibition VOLCANO at Compton Verney

ALf said this time he did not cause the explosion of the Soufrière Hills volcano, on the island of Montserrat, sent a cloud bellowing up to 40,000ft. He was questioned because of his commitment to the future exhibition at Compton Verney in the summer.

At the moment of the eruption ALf, Uppy and OLD FART were lost in some backwater of Solihull.

Uppy said we were in a small time vortex all the blocks of flats looked the same

Maybe ALf had stopped the time continuum in order to nip off and sort the volcano?

Compton Verney Director,Stephen asked for one small volcano ALf!

Iceland’s Mount Eyjafjalljokull volcano arrived in British airspace on north-westerly winds.

ALf say’s that he has nothing to do with this new volcanic eruption in Iceland.

Over the past 1,100 years, Eyjafjallajökull has erupted four times: in 920, 1612, between 1821–1823, and in 2010. Each of the first three of these incidents directly preceded a major eruption in the nearby subglacial volcano, Katla. There is so far no evidence that Katla will erupt because of its vicinity to the current eruption in Eyjafjallajökull. Katla, which is a much more active volcano, known for its powerful subglacial eruptions and its large magma chamber, much larger than that of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano system, has still not shown any unusual activity, like expansion of the crust or seismic activity. However, one cannot rule out that possibility, since history has shown that Eyjafjallajökull can be a precursor to additional Katla activity. Some geophysicists in Iceland support the notion that the recent volcanic eruption at Eyjafjallajökull may trigger a second eruption at Katla, which would cause a major flooding event due to melting of glacial ice.

ALf returned very early this morning looking slightly ashen faced.

He told OLD FART that he has now done his bit for the arts and helped Compton Vereny on their way to meeting their visitor expectations for 2010.

ALf said for sure that the climatic conditions over northern Europe caused by the volcanic ash

had definitely accounted for the white Christmas in the UK.
