Jeremy Deller and the Bat House Project Partners are pleased to invite you to join a collaborative initiative to imagine and design a home for bats in London.
The Project highlights the potential for architects, builders, home-owners and conservationists to work together to produce wildlife-friendly building design. It connects the worlds of art and ecology to encourage public engagement with ecology issues. The Project builds on the Mayor of London’s policies to raise awareness of urban biodiversity and to support the survival of Londonâ€™s ten bat species.
Weâ€™ve launched a Competition to select the final design for the Bat House, to be built at the WWT London Wetlands Centre in Barnes, in South West London. The competition will be open to artists, architects, the wider public, students and schoolchildren. It will be accompanied by a publication, an exhibition and a limited edition artwork by Jeremy Deller.
The Bat House will be a building of aesthetic and environmental excellence, built with sustainable materials, offering a home to bats and an educational visitor attraction for people.
A good friend of mine and I decided to brew beer in a pumpkin. This is how we did it.

And this one Republican Sex Scandals Dwarf Those of Democrats:
Then we ran into a problem with the idea of naming these scandals and their Republican perpetrators; there are so many they would hardly fit on the page. Using data from “Moral Values,” these citations are otherwise attributed to the original agencies. Here is a partial list of names of serious problems related to GOP movers and shakers.
Soon they realized it was a deer trying desperately to keep afloat — and obviously losing the battle. Fearing the whitetail would get snagged in their lines they cranked in their rigs. Then the deer headed straight for the boat possibly thinking it was a spit of land.
But as it got closer and saw the two fishermen aboard, it had second thoughts. With its nose barely out of the water, it appeared to have been swimming all night, said Campbell. “Since the fish weren’t biting, we thought we’d give it a hand. Bo grew up around cows, was really handy with a bow line and lasooed the deer on the first attempt.”
They got it close, Bo grabbed the neck, Chad got a good hold on a flank and “we barreled over backwards to the deck — and before we knew it, Bo was on top of the buck in velvet and had him hog tied like a calf.”
Chad, said they feared the deer was going to “kick the hell out of us in a 22-foot center console boat,” but they were lucky, it was too exhausted to resist, “We hit the gas and ran him to the closest beach, Kent Point, where I beached the boat and we carefully unloaded our catch on the sand. We untied him and jumped back.
