That's an adorable photo MJ. Looks as if she is finally settled and comfortable.

Awww! So sweet.

Have a great birthday!

I'm glad we can post celebrities now, as I've taken a few recently but this is the only one without other people in it. It was taken at a celebrity cricket match on Ham Common this summer, and will wait a day to see who recognises him.

Don't get too carried away, Sat - I'd rather we didn't become paparazzi. As a general rule, I'd rather that any celebs in images knew there were cameras there - a rock star on stage is performing, a rock star taking a nap behind the scenes is not. It's a matter of discretion, so please err on the side of rectitude. smile

This picture is from Quentin & I were at the hotel. Quentin guards me quite often. He is also a supreme guardian of exits from wherever we are living. One night I woke up around 4am and found him standing guard at the end of the hallway. He was staring at the door, daring anyone to come in and disturb me.

I had a lovely posed photo from last month of Jane Horrocks and the long time radio presenter Steve Allen but there were a bunch of people standing around them, the other was the only one without other faces. But plenty of them had been posing for photos in the tea break but again the others aren't only them. I'll know for next time.

Taken at the Christmas Market in University Square, Bucharest a few days ago. My fingers were freezing so I just took this quickly on my phone.

As I didn't have my camera with me I took this on my phone, it didn't come out too badly. It's now the only petrol station for about two miles in Temple Fortune, the last alternative has just closed. That's at least five in the last decade.

Nobody recognised the footballer John Salako? He was playing in an annual celebrity charity match and plenty of people were taking photos of them all during the tea break, but that was the only one without other faces creeping in.

I've just uploaded this photo in Devon from 1983 when I saw a cat come to see its friend in the car park.

In the future I see some camera action. Or is that now? It was in the future then but it's now now? When it was then, it was to be, but it became now but now is then again. Oh, heck, it's just a darn picture. Why come up with the thousand words it could tell? Or, has it told them already? But if you're just reading it, it has yet to tell them. So maybe they have yet to be so the measure of them is a point of past discussion? No, wait... More egg nog? Oh thanks, put it there please? Thank you. Merry Christmas.

These are so old I only remember the version after this one, a 1950s Humber Hawk.

Yes, please... blacking out one of the numbers/letters would be fine. (The Audi plate is legible too.)

I saw an Audi R8 yesterday and, apart from wondering what it was doing in the Argos car park, I was quite impressed with its numberplate which began with "R8 ..." How much did that cost?!

December cold fronts sweeping south across Lake Okeechobee carry moisture to above the Everglades where the warmth of that body transfers to the cold air and makes it rise. This image is of 1/4 of the sky yesterday to my west and over those 'Glades. Building beautifully broad bilious bounty.
This is looking straight West. So, to the right (North) you can see the moist air that is almost always present over Okeechobee rising to the stratosphere. Then, going to the left (South) you can see individual masses of air, getting higher and higher with each mile south they move. Later, last night, the clouds drifted northward in the dark and brought us a 1/2 inch of rain. The temperature here is daytime 82F but the air mass to the North is about 65F. It is the low cold air that strips moisture from the bottom of the Okeechobee cloud and brings it south. It's like an upside-down chimney in operation.

As the "anyone seen Santa?" thread continues, I am getting more and more worried. I spotted his sleigh very clearly being pulled by out of control magic reindeer, and the big man himself nowhere to be seen! Has Vixen finally flipped? Did Blitzen have one too many sherries at the office party? Why oh why does no one ever remember that Dasher is allergic to carrots?

R8 isn't that much, all plates 1-30 or so were held back around then for profit, and there would be hundreds available if you didn't mind the three letters after it. I had an 8 years ago in the normal series and don't think it was worth a lot.

Could this be another photo of Stafford Street in Timaru on Christmas Eve?
