Wow, now that's a lot of snow, CmdrK! I've been watching the news on this storm and have been keeping in touch with a friend in Rhode Island about all the snow he's getting. I hope you weren't one that lost your power during this storm.

Cool bearded dragon pic. I wish it was warm here! It's usually warmer here in Arizona during the winter, but it's been cold this year. I'm so jealous of your heat, Jill.

Love all the flowers pictures! And that is one cool looking boat, Christinap.

Another old photo that I scanned that is one of my very favorites. This is my stepson and my noble ClaraSue about 10 years ago at a lake in northern New Mexico. Just shortly after this photo, both of them dove into the water, one after the other. I have that other photo somewhere that I'll have to find and post because ClaraSue just loved diving into the water. She always loved swimming and playing in the water.

Milking the snowstorm a little more, here's what the other Jeep looked like yesterday. Looking at this picture, I was thinking it looks like something Herman Munster would drive.

I love that fishing boat - it looks like a prop out of a movie!

Another view of the bearded dragon in the dappled sunlight.

Love that boat, Christinap!
and all the flars!
and the bearded dragon ...
But all that snow has me shivering in my nicely centrally heated and cosy home! Not for me thanks, though it looks great!

Thanks all, the boat did look a bit like it was waiting for someone out of a movie to jump in it. We were assured though that it was a much used lake fishing boat - don't think it would have withstood sea very well.

Here's another old one I've scanned. We were at a country show and they had a side saddle riding demonstration team.

It's probably too naughty, Ren. (Side-saddle is obviously a euphemism.)

smile I can see it.

The clearway sign is in the bag, quite possibly the only one in Britain. It was a short lived design, and the only one before 1964 in lower case. There's a picture of one around Hyde Park Corner from the early 60s, on a rectangular plate, and I don't ever recall seeing a circular one for the clearway ahead till now (edit, I just did a search and found one for straight ahead for the road you're on). Here's a little road near there looking over Ash Common.

Another scanned photo from a few years back. This is Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.

For those who would like some history and are feeling a little hungry, you may like to visit Sally Lunn's Historic Eating House & Museum. One of the oldest (c.1482) buildings in Bath and bakes the original Sally Lunn bun, named after the French refugee who arrived in 1680 and set up a bakery.

I've been to Sally Lunn's many times in Windsor, I would think it's the same people and has all the history written on the wall as you come in.

You won't see many of these around nowadays, my scouts have been busy this week, and when one I was going to get had been replaced Tellywellies and someone on Flickr provided me with others the next day, this also has a 10mph speed limit underneath it which I didn't have, there is a turn left sign in the centre of London but with very little paint left unlike this one. There were usually red circles on the top of the pole but although there's room on this there's no bracket which would have meant it had been there once and vanished. Luckily I do have one of them as well which is many times rarer to get the whole set nowadays.

All looks so nice Ren.

We are fortunate in having an RHS garden only a few miles from us, and they are well known for their rose garden. This is just one bed of over a dozen. On a warm summer day the perfume can be almost overwhelming.

Beautiful!

Our friend used to own a pub but shut it down.
That left only one pub in town and that friend won't go to that pub.
So he set up his own little pub area (no selling) on the banks of the Darling River.
great spot. laugh

I want to be in your place, Ren!!! That all looks fab! The food, the flars, the fruit, the flars ... the food ... grin

Then I could slake my thirst at Copago's friend's private bar with a view! Love it!

Happy birthday Sara! I haven't checked my Hotmail yet today or would have sent it from there directly.

In case anyone wonders what the one way system in Enfield looks like here it is. The glass building on the left was a library according to Google but is now apparently a shopping mall. That's called 'cuts'...

A very happy birthday to you Ren. Hope you have a lovely day
