Another statue this time a local Newcastle hero Jackie Milburn centre forward for Newcastle United in the 1950s FA Cup winning teams.



The statue originally stood in the pedestrianised centre of the city in Northumberland Street but was moved to Milburn Junction on St James Boulevard the approach road to St James Park

A different type of sport... The Great Ball Court at Chichén Itza. The "goals" are the stone rings near the tops of the walls (about midway down the wall).

Thanks, Andrea. It's around 15 meters tall.

I'd love to see more shots of Chichén Itza, PDAZ. smile

Nuts did you say? Well these are carvings of tagua nuts. Also called vegetable ivory, the nuts grow on palm trees in the Panama/Ecuador region.

Years ago, a workmate gave me this carved hen, folkart from his home in India.
Prophetic? I've since joined The Indian Gang and now enjoy my small flock of backyard hens!
