Do you know Joni Mitchell's song Both Sides Now, from way back at the start of her career?  I'm not generally one for soupy orchestral arrangements, but this one ... works.  Especially if you've known the song for 40+ years, and have come to the conclusion that you, too, really don't know clouds at all.

Pic 0: How come the feed list entry was illustrated with a shot of Joni? Did you send that, or did Feedly add it?

Pic 1: Clouds? Or smoke from a bonfire which has just had an old tyre chucked on?

Pic 3: Could this be be artificial cloud, created in the Soton labs which will rain on demand by remote control? It looks too square to be natural. I'd have to see the other side to be sure.

Must have been added by the feed -- nothing to do with me.

1: Steam from boilers, catching the morning sun.

2. You might think that, but I couldn't possibly comment.

Actually, not a cloud in sight. But then, I did say I don't really know clouds at all...

Feedly must have thought your pictures were too "difficult".

Black steam? Are you sure it's the morning sun the boiler's catching, not fire?

Criminal tribunals have been allowed to "draw conclusions" from silence since 1994. That's all I'm saying.

PS You really don't know the lyrics either, do you? (Try singing it).
