Nope, not boring at all, nifti .
Liz, when I first saw the latest picture of Winston, I thought you had a new puppy!

Well, now that vacation is over **sob**, it's back on the road. While in Bossier City, LA (again ) I spotted this museum. It didn't seem like it was open, but then, it could have been just too early on Sunday.

Croydon tramlink
Nearly 10 years ago they took over a few existing railway lines and linked them via the main roads in Croydon, and now run these trams on the routes centred on it. This is Merton Park station, the trains only use the roads where the line links East and West Croydon and a few new links thereabouts.

Love the Mardi Gras display, Lisa! And of course Winston is adorable as always. Nifti, I've never been to Scotland, so your photos will never be boring to me. Especially when there's a border collie in them. !

Here's a sunflower that grew in my backyard, though I did not plant it. I think the bird feeder contributed this one.

I've never seen those trams Satguru, and didn't even know they existed; who are 'they' who operate them?
That fireman in your shot was certainly earning his money TW, looks like the fuel tank could explode any time - even if it is diesel!
This is a peaceful scene earlier today in the Lea Valley Regional Park, where I was cycling with two of my grandchildren.

I've edited in a link now for the Croydon Trams. I've been on it all except the Beckenham branch. I also have a video of the complete route and a pack of postcards. They have a lot of material available to go with the actual journey.

That's looks more than a bit of an incident TW. A write off I'm sure.







While touring around Riding Mt Park we took a turn outside the park to see the countryside.These abodes are called Buddah's. The are replicas of homes build by pioneers from the Ukraine when they first arrived. This spot is the actual location of the first homestead. They are build from local trees and the walls are a mixture of clay and straw. The roof is also of heavy straw.

This is Chinaman's Hat, an island off the coast of Oahu. Maynooth took this picture with my camera. This view features on a number of postcards and tourist brochures I have seen but usually between two trees. I have to say, in all honesty, I think Maynooth's photo is better - a more interesting angle and more detail of the island able to be seen. In most photos I have seen, the island is just a "shape" between two trees.

Thank you for the recipe Toni. It sounds very quick & simple to make it. That's about the level of my cooking skills & I'm going to try my hand at it soon. I'll try & let you know how I get on.

This is the Dakota building, opposite Central Park, where John Lennon lived (& where he was shot). They have a security guy there so I couldn't go to the actual spot where it happened, but I can understand how much of a nightmare that would be for the people who still live there.

More great photos from everyone!

I believe this is an osprey, watching over its nest built on a platform atop a tall pole. It's on my route to listen to concerts in the park, and I zoomed in (up) as much as my camera would zoom. You can see the second bird flapping its wings.

This is a sculpture by local artist, the late Anne Austin - perfect for "that" garden...

Right here's my one for today, this is a photo of our 'ghost'.I found this tucked into a sequence of photos I had taken of the dogs, at the time there was only my hubby around and I can assure you this is not him!! lol The house we live in was built in the 17th century and I have heard stories of a ghost being here. I am one of the 'point and click' brigade and know little if anything about cameras and how they work but I'm sure some of the more professional amongst you will be able to come up with a logical explanation...........somehow I hope you don't, the thought of having a friendly ghost is quite romantic!!

Thanks for the Croydon tram link David; definitely a 'must visit' next time I'm in London. I usually buy a go anywhere travelcard, which seems to cover the tram zones too.
Quite an image capture is your 'ghost' nifti. There are societies interested in that sort of thing, and maybe you should notify them. Careful though; there are also a lot of cranks.
This is the stage backdrop for my grandchildren's school play Splash performed last week.

Britain seems to have a lot more wild flowers growing at the roadside than a few years back. Here are some poppies.

If the ghost picture is unexplained I'll see where I can think who'd do a good job analysing it. It really has to be picked apart by a digital expert first, have the image enhanced and then passed on to psychic researchers with a full technical report. They can rule out all sorts of other causes that way but never actually say what it is.

Here is some landscaping in Central Square in Hampstead Garden Suburb

I love the ghost picture! My house is also very old and is said to be haunted. There is one spot where if you take a picture, it always turns out with a halo effect. I even have a name for my ghost - a former inhabitant named Mary Bell. People that have stayed with me have claimed to also have seen a little boy and heard footsteps on the stairs late at night.

Wow!, really satguru? Gosh how exciting! I can think of no explanation for it, as I said it just appeared in amongst some pics I had taken of the dogs, in fact I did not even see it till I had put my pics on as a screensaver slideshow!

Wow, that's fascinating, nifti! Cool picture!
Great photo of the train, Professor.

I guess we were near an airport last night.
