Thanks for putting together such an interesting post, Dianne! I love the photos of the faces carved in wood. Back in the old days people built with such inventiveness and detail it's hard to believe. How many hours work, how much skill, is there in just one of those faces?!
I've heard about the ancient origins of the Green Man before, but was surprised to see that there are traces of the same guy in Europe too.

Not the most spectacular Green Man pub, but it does have the honour of being a pub that I used to drink in on a regular basis:-



It is on a heath with a Roman Camp about half a mile a way. The heath is an area of relatively high, relatively dry ground on the edge of London and today it has a big roundabout (plus underpass) where two A-roads meet. My guess is that it has always been an area to meet; for ancient Green Man celebrations, for the Romans, for medieval travellers, and for latter-day pub goers like myself, cavorting naked at midnight under the watchful eyes of The Green Man, god of procreation.

I enjoyed reading about it myself..
...The internet is far and beyond what I ever believed it to be. I get to see and learn all kinds of things , that gives you a good outlook and being able to converse that little but better than when I was much younger.
some of the link I would think is in my first post but still interesting to read and I think the good comes out of any tree. It is life giving.
Cheers for now...Have a good Xmas...Roast Lamb for us this evening.
Husband got a new speed boat..lucky sod...
ok it is like this one...

he had the yellow one a few years now and electronically it's Kuput...

Been in that pub many times..Sevenoaks...then we were all made aware of drinking and driving, that altered things...

You sound like my brother-in-law, who spends ages roaming around wikipedia as one article suggests to him the next....

I didn't mean to be mysterious, but I don't like to put too many personal identifiers in my posts. That pub is in Wandsworth, so you must be thinking of one of the other hundreds of Green Man pubs in and around London. Perhaps you were too drunk at the time to notice how it looked

Anyone who has watched the Netflix series, Locke & Key, will recognize this mansion in Massachusetts immediately:_

But sadly, it's not real and it's not in Massachusetts:-

Quote:
While Keyhouse would undoubtedly make a cool place to visit, it’s as fictional as the town it’s located in. Unfortunately, the mansion isn’t one physical place as it appears. The outside shots are mostly fabricated, while the various rooms seen inside of the Locke family’s home make up a detailed set. As for the series’ filming location, Locke & Key shoots in Toronto, Canada. That means the lush backdrops viewers enjoy aren’t actually from Massachusetts — despite the show being set there.

Yet another reason to avoid Massachusetts.

^ Well, keep that attitude to yourself when you meet Jonathan Richman, ok?

^ What a beautiful looking pub! Very understandable that you should get the two principle white buildings confused.

By the way, I wonder if you have any special tip about how you find such nice big pictures to post?
I usually go to Google: "images of...." but all the best pictures are locked; the only ones I can copy are the meagre-sized ones I have been posting for some time.

Thanks Dianne! I hope you and others will bear with me as I try things out here. This is my result for "copy address of image":



Yep, that's not bad. I think what I should do is go to original source websites rather than to "Google Images of..". They seem to have put most of their stuff under some copyright/license restriction.

Zaha Hadid is an architect with a huge international reputation. Good for her to have done so well (as an Iraqi woman) in a profession dominated by guys. She has been dubbed “The Queen of The Curve” because here and elsewhere, she has done for building materials what Salvador Dali did for watches: melted them.
