Sue, I have the same bottle of Mumm Napa Cuvee Brut. It might be of interest to know that 2 years ago that wine sold for $18 here in the states. Mine is still happily tucked away in my cellar. It won't get opened until the whole bottle is ready to be used. By more than just me!

Only $18?? US $?? Wow that is cheap! You won't get much more than a nasty non French 'Beaujolais' for that here.I had better head for Texas.
Mumm brut Non vintage is double that here. I just looked it up in the Supermarket list

Here's an 'action' shot of me pretending to mow my lawn, which is in dire need of it. Only problem today was that it was about to bucket down rain when the photo was taken...

Ren, that's not to say that all Mumm Brut is only $18. I also have a bottle of Mumm Napa DVX that runs $50. It's all in the label!

A traditional looking structure reflecting the watery area we live in. A bit spoiled by the TV aerial though.

I am posting tomorrows as I will be out early at work.
This is another shot of the area where I will be
working in China.
It is a knot garden, very lovely too.

Those are the dates of the two different photos that I can see!
I suppose it all evens itself out.

You want to see a Ferrari, here's one!
I think the 'Please Do Not Touch' sign refers to the cars by the way

More great pics - I love the bear statue.

This row of houses is in High Street in the Old Town of Hastings.

Great shots everyone. Too hot to go out and about today, so here's a shot of the Mitchell Corn Palace, in Mitchell South Dakota.




Click on link for large shot:

The murals on the sides and front are made from corn. If you'd like to know more click on the last link:

I can't remember what I paid for the Mumm Cava but it wasn't much, probably well under £10.

The rains have been pretty substantial this week in Arizona. The day always start off clear and beautiful, but by mid-afternoon, the cloulds have overbuilt into thunderheads and we get torrential rains for about an hour or two. The owners of this car came out to find they had a bit of water to wade through...

Nice to see an S type Jag over there Clara Sue, except of course they are actually Lincolns with modified bodywork now so hardly surprising to see across the water! At least Ford had the sense to keep the old designs or the Jaguars may have gone the same way as Rovers did.



In case anyone needs directions here is the sign just north of Henlys Corner in Finchley. I strongly recommend people turn right as it leads to Finchley Road, the dual centre of my universe as it crosses the North Circular Road, the other one. There are of course many attractions to the left as well, Barnet FC, many old friends, shops and if you go far enough my grandma, but most is a lot more scruffy once you hit Ballards Lane. Sorry anyone from Barnet but you know I speak the truth!

I'm off sailing for a few days, but wonder if anyone can identify this plant while I'm away?

It's Anthurium, a member of the Arum family. Commonly known as flamingo flower, flamingo lily, boy flower, and tail flower.

My company (one person, one dog) went home today, and I can't decide if Katt is looking sad about it or relieved - perhaps a bit of both, eh?

Excellent, a comprehensive answer! That's the second time I've had a plant identified through 'Photo-a-day', which is a nice secondary benefit of this thread

I thought I was hallucinating this morning when I woke up to bright sunshine and a clear blue sky, but the camera seems to confirm my impression.

This building was originally the stable block of a big house on the edge of the Old Town. When I was a kid it was a derelict wreck, known to us for some reason as "the old fire station." About forty years ago it was restored and has been used as a theatre since then.

It is amazing ,Picqero, that your Anthuriums are looking so good, they don't like too much rain , I think. Well, all I can say is they grow everywhere here in the dry season. Haven't you had lots of rain?
Here is last night's sunset:

What a fabulous cat, Liz! And that's a neat toy, Sue, I love it. What kind of program is that?

Earlier I posted the front view of a friends home. This is the fireplace in their family room. I just love the way it looks.
