Thanks minkpenny, if you ever come to London I will be very happy to show you round the houses personally. I have taken Onimisi on the tour so far from here while he was between planes for a day here on his way back home from Europe.

Oh thanks, satguru! That would be lovely. I've always wanted to visit London and if the possibility ever comes up, I'd love to do that.

When you open the photo in photbucket, Auntie, there is a box on the left that says :share this image: and you can select the one that says "IMG CODE" and simply paste that here.
Or you can take the link from the photo like the one you posted up there and put [IMG] link [*/IMG] (but remove that asterix)

Or you can look at TellieWellie's thread which should answer any question you come up with .. and more!

Your cats are gorgeous! PLease keep posting - there's lots of cat lovers here

Thanks for your help ladies. I won't give up!
I first met these "two four-year-old cats, free to good home," a week after my last cat passed. We have been together for the last six years to the satisfaction of all concerned.
I think Bijou looks rather like spanishliz's "Precious."

An Austin A30 in very good condition. I am still at a loss to understand why manufacturers don't offer a variety of styles like they do with houses to suit everybody. I much prefer these designs to anything since and many others do as well but they simply don't bother.

Satguru: love all your pics of graveyards and gardens. The Austin is pretty cool too. Hubby's first car was a Mini (please don't ask him how many people can fit in one, he'll be all too happy to tell you and I'm quite tired of the story LOL)

Telly: I don't think you have to worry about disturbing the web by cleaning windows. Looks like an orb weaver to me and if so, they spin a new web almost every day anyway.

Auntie: quite the "Study in Pattern" with your two cats. Very nice first post!

Here are some white pelicans at Islet Lake (approx 1.5 hours drive plus .5 hours kayaking away from where I live)

That photo certainly brings back memories! A second-hand Austin A30 was my first car 45 years ago ..and it was that colour.

Remember last month the photo of the water with the road closed sign? here

This is what we came across yesterday. They had to go past three lots of road closed signs to get to here. I asked the first bloke "What did you think was going to happen?". It took them over two days of inching backwards to get out.

This is the first major whiskey distillery to be built in Scotland for 30 years. This is at Roseisle about 10 miles from where I live, near Elgin. The last one incidently is about the same distance in the other direction. You might just make out the green structure on the left, that's what houses the 14 stills. It will be the largest whiskey distillery in Scotland, and is the current holder of the Scottish building project of the year award.

I love both types of pelican! Pickle is a beautiful Grandpuss, and that Austin is just lovely. You really have to wonder if those guys in the water can't read, or just choose not to believe signs...

Somebody built an inuksuk in the middle of the river!

Some sort of grasshopper (I think) in stealth mode. Hardly noticeable against the background of a tomato plant leaf. It's about three-quarters of an inch long.

That's an immature grasshopper as it hasn't got its wings yet. Here are some modern townhouses in Hendon.
