Great pics, everybody! that chasm looks amazing as does the close up of your Canadian penny!

Autumn is on the way and the blackberries are out (at least here in Brittany). I collected a lovely set of stings and bramble scratches with my youngest yesterday, but also collected enough berries to make four pots of lovely blackberry jelly:

Now you have me humming 'underground, overground, wombling free ...' grin

If you want blackberry jam or jelly, you've got to start with some blackberries:

It looks like an AC Cobra, if I could see an oval grille that would confirm it. Good to see more models turning up, they're all about the same age we are.

I'll dig it out & take a full-frontal photo for you David. The model car that is.
I suspect that it's older than me & was made before I came along & took up all my dad's time. shocked

Here's the view of the model car from the front for you SatG:



I've compared it to some pictures of AC Cobras & have to say I'm not sure.
But what do I know about cars?

That is a nice one- the side is very much like the Cobra but it's the previous one I think is a lot nicer, the AC Ace, although I did need the book to see the difference I have to admit.

Cool sheepies smile .... and um,santanna? i hate to tell you this, but someone lifted one of your jelly pots smile ... how can something soooo good be such a pain to pick? Mother Goose, your signpost reminds me of the one in the *Mash* series smile cool.
nice photos everyone.

This is the monstrance (which holds the Host... the Real Presence of Christ)on the altar in a small chapel located inside the very old St. Peter's RC church downtown. Perpetual Adoration is held here 24 hours a day, Monday through Friday. As the Eucharist can not be left alone, there must always be someone there, and they schedule people who desire to spend an hour a week. There are six small pews behind me that you can not see.

Our dogs enjoying a bit of shade under the plum tree. So far we've picked around 5 pounds of plums and there are plenty left.

Lovely. How is all Alsatians look so intelligent?
My Gnawra looks so loopy. She is a sweety but not so bright. It has been hot lately and she gets ice cubes. Always insists on taking one to her bed "to keep for later".

As you see she has quite an inane grin.

Another shot with the digital microscope. This is some detail of a canadian 20 dollar bill ... the dark line is where the bill had been folded ...

apologies for not being very clear but here is a feral cat that has come visiting lately. He's gotten so used to us that he doesn't even try to hide anymore. We let him hang around as he's keeping the rabbits in teh yard under control .. looks like he's looking at one now ...

Thanks for identifying the car David, I was wondering what it was.

Something else I found in the attic was this crane of mine. I can remember playing with it when
I was little. It's a bit wonky now, not surprising considering how old it is. (The same applies to me.
smile ) Amazingly it still works though wasn't much help in lowering heavy stuff down from the loft. laugh

I didn't realise the car didn't have the name under it Martin, if there are any more send them over on Facebook and I'll do the same thing (if I can).
I just found a little box of photos hiding in a cupboard, and besides some I did wonder where they were one small group appeared to have not been printed but have the means to get them from the negatives now. There were a few of these and not even sure where I took them although from about 2001.

A while ago, Ren sent me a recipe for a "five minute chocolate cake", done in the microwave, which is absolutely delicious! smile I managed to take a photo of it today ...



(The recipe suggests you make it in a coffee mug, but you get more in a Pyrix bowl! laugh )

yum! look at all the cakes! that's a lovely bridge satguru, i like the wild
grasses in the foreground.

a "stormy" sunset going on a couple nights ago, it threatened rain as you
can see (top right); but it was very spotty and didn't last long.
