With MPs taking the entire summer off, it seems only fair that another Parliamentary figure should pack up and go on holiday too.

Rising above a field of ripening corn, the clock tower of Big Ben has appeared in a sleepy stretch of rural Cheshire.

Closer inspection reveals that this is a rustic copy of the Victorian landmark, built on a farm using more than 500 bales of hay – and featuring a working clock. Although its faces are illuminated at night there are only two – both facing the road – rather than the four of the real thing.

Little Ben: The sculpture, which has a working clock, was built in celebration of summer and heralds the 150th anniversary of the famous London landmark. Previous straw creations have included a rocket and a windmill

Dead ringer: The model of Big Ben beside the road in rural Cheshire

The tower, completed last weekend, is the latest straw sculpture dreamt up by an ice cream firm to celebrate the arrival of our so-called summer.

‘Straw Ben’ now stands proudly beside the A51 between Nantwich and Chester. It is built around a steel frame and is 70ft tall – almost a quarter of the size of the real thing beside the Thames.

‘It is 150 years since Big Ben was built so we wanted to commemorate the occasion,’ said Chris Sadler, 56, a director of the Nantwich-based company Snugburys.

2007: A replica of the Jodrell Bank telescope, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the dawn of the space age and weighing in at six tonnes

‘It looks stunning and is particularly impressive at night when it is floodlit and the clock face lights up.’

The firm’s previous sculptures have included the Jodrell Bank space telescope, the London Eye, the Angel of the North and the Millennium Dome.

Mr Sadler went on: ‘The sculpture was completed on Saturday and will stay up until after Christmas.

2005: A replica of the London Eye, this earned the duo praise from the architects of the original

‘The clock face is about two metres wide and is an exact working copy of the real thing.

‘It costs a lot of money so we have a fence around it with security manning it. There is also an alarm which is activated if anyone tries to climb up it.’

Mr Sadler’s ice cream parlour has also had Big Ben-shaped cones made to coincide with the project.

He explained that a percentage of the sale of the cones would go towards the charity Kids Company, which helps vulnerable inner-city children.

Another Russian fun to dress into the medieval Russian warriors, then build some castles of wood logs and play real time 3d strategies, without using computers, but with real iron weapons. Some parties also use fire to burn the castle down and occupy it.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching — not sure what to get that ex-special someone?

Open the card up, and it continues: “Someone else.”

Another card from the site starts out cheerily: “Happy Valentine’s Day!”

Inside, it adds, “Even though we both know it’s over.”

For most people, Valentine’s Day is still about chocolates, hearts, teddy bears and romantic sentiments. But a growing number of the recently or steadfastly single are getting in on the holiday as well, spawning anti-Valentine’s Day cards, T-shirts and parties.

Anti-Valentine’s Day cards have been popular among smaller distributors and Web-based e-card producers for several years. Now the trend is starting to attract more mainstream attention.

Industry powerhouse American Greetings Corp. this year added 10 anti-Valentine’s Day cards to the roster of 2,500 cards it produces for the holiday. While it may be just a tiny portion of the company’s holiday effort, “that’s huge for a new product in our industry,” said American Greetings spokeswoman Megan Ferington.

Ferington said the Cleveland-based company decided to add anti-Valentine’s Day cards after noticing last year that more people were holding singles parties or girls’ nights out on what is traditionally a night for couples.

“Singles just want to be part of the holiday,” she said. “There really was an undercurrent of people wanting to celebrate.”

One card from American Greetings’ collection opens with: “They had shared a moment.”

Inside, it reads: “A lifetime commitment was completely out of the question. Happy Anti-Valentine’s Day (for the woman who knows what she doesn’t want.)”

In addition to the more overtly anti-holiday cards, Ferington said American Greetings also has boosted its lineup of Valentine’s Day cards that are meant to be sent to friends rather than soul mates.

Hallmark Cards for years has offered both humorous and heartfelt Valentine’s Day cards to send from one female friend to another, said spokeswoman Rachel Bolton. Recently, however, she said the popularity of such cards has grown, thanks in part to such cultural influences as the TV show “Sex and the City.

One of the huge trends is cards for singles,” Bolton said.

It’s not surprising that people who make their living selling greeting cards would reach out for a wider audience than just those who are happily coupled up (or in grade school). After all, Valentine’s Day is one of the most important holidays of the year for the industry.

The Greeting Card Association expects Americans to buy 190 million Valentine’s Day cards this year. That figure shoots up to 1 billion once you include cards, generally sold in packages of 25 or more, exchanged among schoolchildren, the trade group says.
