It may be Jesus's step-dad, as he has a basket ...

The legend ofJoseph, husband of the Virgin Mary, tells that when the young saint visited the future mother of God, the staff left at her fatherís door miraculously budded, releasing a dove to heaven. Alongside the staff, Joseph is pictured with tools of his carpentry trade, and a basket containing doves (symbolic of the sacrificial doves brought when the young Jesus was presented at the temple)

Sorry, don't recognise 'im. He's not one of the (few) saints that I can identify. They usually carry something that shows who they are (Peter and keys, for example).

He looks to be holding a manuscript or a basket, but that would leave a fair few options open. Any idea where that one is?

Evening. Had a lovely day here. Been out for a lot of it. My daughter climbed the Dome today, said it was quite knackering. It certainly looked like it. Must confess it was quite fun watching the little planes wibbly-wobbling their way into LCY, I'd forgotten what a good view of finals you get from the North Greenwich peninsular.

Welcome back nigel, I hope your company are throwing money at you after your efforts!

Mrs ExAscot, your hubs' monicker does not have 'banned' under it in older posts. Has he been given a temporary suspension?

Hmm, not sure Cilla Black's death, sad though it is, should be the lead item on the Beeb news. Bloody reporter live from Spain in the dark as well. "She and her family used to go out to restaurants and cafes around here." Stop the presses! Sheesh.

When I first looked at it I thought it was Moses carrying the tablets, having just come down from the Kop, then it occurred to me that Moses probably wouldn't make an appearance in a cathedral! Didn't one of the apostles go around dishing out epistles? May be him. Given the age, possibly pre Henry VIII, it may be a Catholic saint?

Been vampired, sausage sarnies eaten.

Must check Mrs IB in for her flight to Manchester tomorrow week and return 10 days later. Off for her mother's 92nd birthday fly-in and around Pendle Hill.

Morning. Beautiful start, but clouds beginning to spring up.

I believe Cilla is in Ma Lager, so if CdS is in Ma Lager, then every chance Ibbie. And on medical news, I'm taking the daughter to Lewisham hospital for a scan today to see if there's anything obvious that causes her UTIs.

Would you believe the appointment letter they sent us did not have the name of the hospital on it. All her other appointments have been at the Queen Elizabeth hospital, but I saw the letter was arranged differently to others we had received and called the number thereon.

A lady confirmed the appointment was at Lewisham. "They forgot to put the hospital name on the letterhead in the latest batch of stationery," the lady said. What a bloody cock up! Surely someone should have noticed. I wonder how many people are turning up at the wrong hospital for appointments?

It's also irritating that the printers didn't have the gumption to ask, "Don't you want a hospital name and address at the top of your nice new letterheads?"

Whilst I was in Thanet last week, I espied a newish large white Transit type van parked in a road behind local MP, Sir Roger Gale's constituency office.

It had across the bonnet and down each side, in foot high, black capital letters, just the word "HOSPITAL" and on one of the rear doors in addition to "HOSPITAL" an "NHS" logo.

In view of the lack of any other sign writing upon the van, even a base address, can only assume that this is a new mobile hospital, which travels about the country.
