Things I have liked this week

Dancing stuff
Strictly Come Dancing is back. Whoop whoop! I love Strictly. And while I don't really know who half the celebrities are, I'll be supporting whoever is partnered with Artem or James :-).

Space picture
From Cassini in the shadow of Saturn. An amazing picture that looks like it's not real, but it is.

Writing stuff
This week I read an article about avoiding certain cliched and overused words on your CV. I thought a lot of the advice applied to writing about characters. Basically it boils down to 'give examples and let the reader work out the qualities'. Good stuff.

That picture is superb. It looks alien and unreal.

Isn't it though? When I first saw it I thought it was computer generated, or at least touched up, but no. It's incredible.

I saw that picture somewhere yesterday. It's absolutely breathtaking.
