Design Museum Booming

Earlier today at the Design Museum and after a slow-ish start the place really began to fill - it's that time of year when families are thrown together and something to do, potentially for free -( here's some help for Londoners) can be  an urgent requirement to stop murder being done.
Look at the 'Design'  briefs and have a go 

The 'Activity' area serves at least two major needs - something that feels somewhat designer-ry and somewhere to sit - often it's pre-schoolers using bricks  but Schools on holiday mean that pre-teens and early teens are involved (making it harder for the more mature to find a seat under the guise of 'trying them out').

Well the answer's on the left
Seems so

From what I heard the first month has already seen more new members than in a year at the previous home (Shad Thames) and the shops - both of them looked busy too.

Thinking about Religion 

Kensington High Street has a nice little Roman Catholic Church (currently with Nativity Scene) and this reminded me that 2016 isn't all about front doors for me.

So I've googled and found a rather neat and helpful site about 'Religious days - here's the January link - it's already told me something about January 1st -that it's a Christian celebration of a Jewish custom namely the circumcision and naming of Jesus - the circumcision is carried out on the 8th day of the infant's life  by a 'Mohel'.

Here's a link to a Christian service celebrating the naming, the keeping of the (Jewish)  law the fist spilling of Christ's Blood.

Not every one's cup of tea
