Here's a picture of the earth's shadow almost covering the moon. I took it a little after 3:00 am EST

Thanks for the moonshot, bhs63, I heard about that on the radio but it was too cloudy for us to see it where I live.

Here's a glass of white wine.

The regular price is $3.00 (see small price ticket on the left) so not much of a bargain, really!

I'd send that to the local press Carole, you'd probably earn a few bob either for the scoop or from the firm as compensation. They'd probably blame human error but with labels that size the error would be of a corresponding proportion.

Here's Tescos just over the road from the shot yesterday.

On the right is where my grandparents lived till 1975, the house next door copied the original windows they all once had while both added a floor on top of the old flat roof and removed the shutters.

A long road in Highgate, that ice is still over all the pavements round here.

Hi All, It is sunny during the daytime here in Abuja, but cold at night.

Here is an artificial lake formed by the Bwari Dam in Abuja.

We were recently in Singapore and found this wacky looking building. It is the Marine Bay Sands hotel and casino, and it has a large ship on the roof!

Ozzz: Yes, that's quite the structure. For folks who might be wondering, it's not really a boat up there though, it's the world's largest public cantilevered platform (they named it "SkyPark"). Anyway, here's an interesting link. I got dizzy just looking at the pictures lol

Crikey, I am glad we did not go up there. Those pictures are terrifying! smile We got about as high as the Ground floor- that is where the Casino is.

A funny thing about that casino- you are allowed to smoke, but not drink alcohol. In Australian casinos it is the other way around.
