Couldn't agree more ClaraSue. Quite how they think they can tell us what the climate will be like in 100 years when they can't get tomorrow right is a mystery! We've already had our first winter snow though, light and didn't stay around, but still snow.

Liz - Lovely picture of Precious.

Copago, love the ladybird. I couldn't upload to Photobucket a couple of days ago, seems to have a few glitches again lately.

Ah, Rosie! Come join the fun smile

Today I spent a fun day with my sister and another friend, tootling around the countryside from one Christmas craft show to another. I managed to spend a minimum amount of cash (including buying a catnip mouse for Precious), and we had a lovely lunch at a tea room out in the ocuntry called the Green Donkey. Even better - they had real donkeys! This was the smallest one.

Liz, your donkey looks cute enough to pick up and stuff in your pocket!

Chavs, "you lookin' at me?" lol


I saw Christinap's photo from last month of Chinese Lanterns growing wild. I didn't know that's what they were called and I found some in Texas the other day. At least I think they're the same. And they're not as pretty as her's.

They certainly look similar. The ones we have go dried like that once they've finished the orange stage and then burst and scatter seeds.

Today we are standing on the Caroline Bay boardwalk and looking towards the snowcapped Southern Alps. Just on the other side of those rocks is the path I walk into town and back each time so as you can see, it is horrible being able to view the mountains and the ocean each time...lol

Cute, Chavs!

Couple of insects here making a couple more insects I suspect.

Now, now...I think one was tired and just hitching a ride. But seriously, I think it's fascinating that even on the bugs, you can tell the difference between the male and female. Those antennae are awesome.

Yes they are, it's actually a great photo. The antennae look almost like feathers or bracken leaves, really impressive. I wonder if the ones with the biggest antennae get their pick of females, like stags with the most impressive antlers.

Ignoring all of this... smile Ren, I like donkeys too, they are sweet. This one was inside, and came out to see me. Came right over and sniffed my hand, in fact.

Awwww! If you go to the Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon, you can cuddle them. I think there is a website....

When not engaged on distant travels (for me anyway) I keep collecting squares for the map to edge up the leaderboard, so they are not very exciting as only represent the little 1km square required, and nearly all of Chessington looks like this wherever you take them.

hehe .. this remined me of a couple years ago when my son came in saying he saw a lizard giving another a piggyback ride ... laugh


Today I discovered that my camera takes panoramic photos! the boy spent the day at White Cliffs school as they had an author visiting for the day so i took my camera on a bit of a tour .. so this is White Cliffs from a distance .. a lot of the people live in these two hills in dugouts.

Very neat that your camera does panorama, Jill. Mine doesn't but I found an app on my phone that allows it and I've taken a few photos with my smartphone. I'll have to see if I can download a few.

This is one very moss filled pond I found near Waco, Texas.
