Naming the blog - first up - Daldinia

Okie dokie, I've had a think about naming the oh-what-an-ugly-word Blog. I've decided there's absolutely no way I'm going to come up with a name that I'm going to like continuously, for ever and ever ...

So in the spirit of self-awareness I see the only resolution to be choosing a name For Now (this is not the name by the way, it's a personality trait ...) and then changing it whenever I feel like it. It's my blog after all.

I've decided name one will be Daldinia.
It has a certain ring to it.
Literally as it happens, because daldinia is a type of fungus (yes, I did say fungus), whose full name is 'daldinia concentrica' or it could be concentricus, but I don't think that's important really.
Daldinia concentrica is more commonly known as King Arthur's Rings
Cos the fungus is black like burned cakes.
Actually I'm thinking I may have mentioned the daldinia earlier in this blog, no matter, re-incarnation does have that 're' quality about it, as in 'returning', or 'reverting' or in any case 'taking summat from the past'
That's alright then.

Reincarnation decision one - the fi benson blog will forthwith be known as Daldinia.

That feels better.

Time for another photo I think, let's have a browse ...
