Sign seen on a tour bus recently, it tickled my fancy and set the tone for the tour, which was an absolute howl:

Here's another sign from the same bus (sorry for the poor photo, we were right down the back, and it was right up the front):



I guess the goats must have sensitised his nose ...

Love the signs! What a trip that must have been.

Got all my machines talking to each other again, Yay! Here's a view of Toronto's Old City Hall, taken from directly in front of the new one (which is over 40 years old now...). I was in the city last week to take my documents to the passport office, so if I feel like a holiday out of the country, I'm ready.

While I was shopping in my local supermarket a few weeks ago, I noticed that they sold sushi. I've had it a few times before so I thought it might make a nice change from my usual lunch. It's really quite nice and I've even made an attempt at using chopsticks for authenticity!

A part of the Cornish coastline from a few weeks ago. It was lovely!

We recently had a week's holiday in central Australia. While in Alice Springs, we visited the Desert Park. This little fellow is a brown kite which I managed to capture on the wing during the Birds of Prey show. He's catching food that the ranger is throwing to him.

Can you spot the thorny devil (a type of lizard)? Good camouflage, don't you think? In case you were wondering, he is facing you!

I can see him!

This is the church at the top of the road in Temple Fortune



I'd like to know how long the maximum bus journey is there, it's not good for you to hold on for too long. And they can never prove who it was anyway...

Auntie - I know what you mean. We are almost finished our bathroom renovations. Everytime a tradesman came (electrician, tiler, plumber etc), we had to shut our cats in their cattery (to keep them from getting out). They did not like it one little bit!

Satguru - I much prefer the house behind it!

This is a Sturt's Desert Pea. It is the floral emblem of South Australia and it is very commonly seen in central Australia. I photographed this one at King's Canyon. I've always loved these flowers but this was the first time I had actually seen one in real life.

A Dreamtime legend tells of a woman who ran away with her lover, rather than marry the old man to whom she was promised. They were tracked down and slaughtered, and from their bruised and bloodied bodies grew the Sturt Pea.



A colourful patch in my winter garden. Those strelitzias badly need dead-heading, but I'll do it when the weather warms up.

I think we're all wired to like old or modern houses, it seems to be quite distinct in most people. One more from Hampstead.
