Especially for those long winter nights when even the most stalwart members of the Caravan Club do nothing more energetic than rifle through their photograph albums!

I haven't been yet but I've heard good reports....and the menu looks great (and VERY reasonably priced, main courses range from £4.50 to £7 ish) For those of you who knew it, it's where almonds and Raisins used to be (near the now demolished Central Library/Princes Square area) Open from 11am to 9pm seven days a week.
" Gospoda is the first Polish restaurant in Newcastle Upon Tyne and in the whole North-East region.Gospoda, which is located in the very centre of the city, is a place with warm atmosphere, delicious, home made food and Polish alcohol. The chef intends to meet the demands of people with even the most sophisticated taste. Everyone will be satisfied with the menu composed by the our chef. With more than ten different sets of dinner courses on the menu (the number will be increasing), it is possible to order meals for breakfast and home made cakes in GOSPODA. For those clients who are not familiar with Polish cuisine, short descriptions and pictures of our dishes have been prepared. A very nice service, good Polish music and reasonable prices of meals and alcohol, are also an unquestionable advantage of Gospoda."

PS....I'm not sure where they've sourced their graphics, but that's sure as hell not a sight you see on the Metro on a regular basis!!
"Dutch artist Theo Jansen has been working for 16 years to create sculptures that move on their own in eerily lifelike ways. Each generation of his "Strandbeests" is subject to the forces of evolution, with successful forms moving forward into new designs. Jansen's vision and long-term commitment to his wooden menagerie is as fascinating to observe as the beasts themselves.
His newest creatures walk without assistance on the beaches of Holland, powered by wind, captured by gossamer wings that flap and pump air into old lemonade bottles that in turn power the creatures' many plastic spindly legs. The walking sculptures look alive as they move, each leg articulating in such a way that the body is steady and level. They even incorporate primitive logic gates that are used to reverse the machine’s direction if it senses dangerous water or loose sand where it might get stuck."
