The Tata Nano, cheapest car in the world when it was first launched last year.

That looks fun, Copago, and that Tato Nano looks pretty good for a budget car! (I wonder when they'll make them available for Europe???)

I had fun with the boys yesterday trying to make gigantic soap bubbles. It's harder than it looks and capturing one on camera before it burst proved to be beyond me. Here's a shot of a fledgling bubble in the making ...

Cool bubbles!
And how much did the car cost, Zorba? I bet it was less than the jet-ski

I'm running out of generic photos .. must get my camera out again! Another truck.

I don't think the Nano is up to EU safety standards, plus they probably don't want it to undercut all their own models so will make sure it can't be driven here.

These are the North Downs (yes, they go up) in Gomshall in Surrey.

The basic model cost Rs. 1 lakh in July 09 (around $2000). The Nano Europa has been designed for European markets and will cost significantly more than the Indian version but it hasn't been launched yet. There's also an electric version in the pipeline.

We are proud to announce the adoption of this little Black Ball of Fur.
Her name is Sadie and she is just three months old. We adopted her two weeks ago from a Society that helps distressed and abandoned animals.
She is a whirlwind and it makes me tired just watching her run all over the place.
She is going to grow up to be a huge kitty we think.
She definitely is keeping me on my toes.
Ren picked the name for her and her middle name is Shaunne after our Vet.
I just thought I would share with you all the good news.
Thank you again for all the lovely Sympathy posts.
PF

Sadie is absolutely adorable, and Mishka looks totally engrossed!

Here's a shot of the rear of U2's recording studios in Dublin - a very unprepossessing building indeed. When the black door is open everyone knows the lads are in session, when it's closed like in this photo then we know they're not around. They're currently on tour, hence the shut door.

Hello Sadie! And I'm glad they've got the Nano to Europe but as usual we always pay more...

Here's a garden along the pavement in Hampstead

Oooh that looks fab! Did you (or your mum) make it?

My eldest would have loved one of those when he was younger!

No, a standard Shop brought cake, but he also had a home-made Victoria Sponge

Here's a typical view I took a few years ago of the cottage side of Hampstead Garden Suburb with one of the numerous paths I grew up walking along. Half the area is cottages and the rest is houses, many extremely impressive.

This chair belonged to my late husband's grandmother Matilda, whom I never knew. It was a total wreck when we got it years ago, but my daughter begged me not to throw it away.
Recently she has discovered that Matilda was born in Tasmania to transported convicts and had a sometimes tragic life.
So I had the chair refurbished as a tangible link to her great-grandmother.

Wow - the chair came up great!

This is a legless lizard .. and not to be confused with a snake. They're only about 8 inches long and if you look very closely they actually do have two small useless legs about half way along.
