The church in the background is the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. It is located on Cathedral Island, the oldest part of Wroclaw city.

You're lucky Sue. Here we only have them in a couple of heavily protected enclaves and a few in wildlife parks - the greys have virtually wiped them out in the wild.


We don't have red squirrels here - only the grey ones. They were an introduced species and the only place I have ever seen them is in our zoo and its surrounds where they run free. When I was a child, we would try to catch them because the zoo staff said if we could catch one we could keep it. Of course, you can't catch them! smilee

You could catch them in London's parks, St James's, Green Park, all round there - you could catch a squirrel without moving. In fact, if you stick your hand out with peanuts on your palm, the grey squirrels will stroll down your arm to get one. Just be careful they don't get a finger as well!

Like Chris, I've been planting out some tubs. Here's one with some cyclamen - and daffodils and crocuses lurking beneath the surface:

They appear to have planted black eyed susans on our local roundabout at Staples Corner, they were a welcome addition. Probably gone now to take a photo of them.

I only ever knew that one ... but we used dollars so I suppose it's a kind of mishmash! This is a 'newer' game and they don't even call them dollars any more .. it is a sidewards M with a line through it. I suppose it means they don't have to have different notes for different countries?
There are Australian versions now but I've never seen them smile

Out and about at Copago.

We have the British and American versions. (In fact we have the American and British or Australian versions of some other popular games too, such as Trivial Pursuit and Clue/Cluedo). Personally I have never been a fan of Monotony...oops sorry...Monopoly ( smilee).

I have never understood the fascination with Monopoly! I refused to teach my kids how to play it, and have never let the game into our house!

I love your cattails, Howie!

Wow! Bet your thighs felt the pull by the time you got to the top of it, Howie!

As for my photo ... not for the arachnaphobes, sorry:
















This humongous "Tarantula" of a spider scared the wits out of me when I almost grabbed her instead of the handle to wind down the shutter of the window:



OK OK, it wasn't a tarantula, nor even a redback, but I'd much rather it invited itself somewhere other than my garage to get out of the chill. To put her in perspective ...

At 6 am it is not good for me to wake to visions of Howie's thighs, Toni, thankyou.
As for the spider, in perspective, it still looks pretty horrific to me!

After many attempts to get a good photo of lightning during a recent storm, this was my best effort.

My local football team - Bristol City - are making changes to their ground (Ashton Gate) over
the next few years and the first phase involved the demolition of one of the stands. For a few
lucky fans who live nearby, this meant they suddenly had a free view of the pitch from their
houses. One enterprising fan built a platform on top of his garden shed which he dubbed 'The
Shed End'. (The demolished stand was known as 'The East End'.) He's become a bit of a
celebrity and during a couple of matches was even raising banners to get the fans in the
ground singing. The free view won't last of course. As soon as construction of the new stand
begins he'll have to pay to get in if he wants to see the team play.
