     A determined family of Yorkshire cyclists conquered rolling hills, slipped chains and a puncture to complete a gruelling 75 mile bike marathon.

1044375_665159336831332_1503137070_n     The Crazy Wheelers team; comprising Gary Stephenson, son Harry (16), brother-in-law Allan Davidson and nephew Lex (13) cycled from London to Brighton to encourage sponsorship and raise awareness for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.

     Gary lost his father-in-law, Pat Sullivan to pancreatic cancer last year within weeks of a surprise diagnosis and with survival rates for the disease especially low, at just 3%, the need to fund ongoing research is vital.

936459_665159586831307_600355296_n     The Wheelers journey is even more incredible as their youngest member, Lex Stephenson is already familiar with the devastating effects of cancer having battled leukaemia since the age of 4.  Lex, who is now in remission, continues to receive considerable support from local and national childhood cancer charities and wanted to extend his fundraising to help other organisations.

1002699_665159780164621_1289522462_n     At the time of writing the team have raised over £1,700 of their £2,000 target and are still accepting donations now their challenge is complete.  It is easy and safe to donate online via the following link…

     Lily Wight ~ The Arcade Of Arts & Arcana is presenting just one Blog Of The Year Award for 2012.

     Renard Moreau is a gifted and conscientious blogger with a unique ability to speak directly and warmly to his readers.  Renard has wit, wisdom and an ability to see beauty in many things.  His blog is infinitely varied, always entertaining and enlightening by coincidence just when you need it to be.

     Renard is unlikely to be interested in or effected by this award, but his blog is heartily recommended just the same and hopefully that will make him *smile* 😉

     According to Blackadder the only thing Dr. Johnson’s Dictionary is good for is looking-up rude words (how true).  So, when  Victorian Era photographer and film-maker Eadweard Muybridge invented Bullet Time it was inevitable he would use his remarkable new-fangled equipment to capture images of naughty ladies (and a few game gentlemen too)!

     It’s old.  It’s black and white, so it’s Art 😉

 

*Warning* Adult Content.

 

     Okay, he did a few other amazing and groundbreaking things too…
