That’s a very impressive grave, Ren. Somehow I’m reminded of an old joke with the punchline “Oy, now that’s what I call living!”

Love the shots of Dominica, Argus.

Nice to see the toucan, Jar – for an old buzzard like me the bird has fond associations with Guinness advertising.

I have to watch my cholesterol intake these days, but I can still slaver over this wonderful cheese shop in Jermyn Street, London.

Argus, if I'd have been there I'd have tried to find a way to make two equal size letters from boxes saying EX. I would have hoped someone already has. Unfortunately the way my mind works...

Cute pic, Liz.

I don't know the name of this flower. The bloom is quite small. Hummingbirds like it.

Oh Liz, how cute! Winston looks so purposeful in his direct path to the tree!
This is another in the 'what the heck is this flower?" club. Wish I knew.

I took this photo of a bluebell at the tulip festival at Araluen. Can you see the rear end of the bee in one of the flowers? (It's a bee-hind - get it? )

A photo of Cyclamen. I got the camera as low down as I could. Just being artistic.

We've been in upstate New York and the weather has been gloomy so I haven't been out with the camera in days. Since we're showing flowers at this moment, I thought I'd add these that I used to have as my avatar. I had never seen daisies with a blue center before and I just fell in love with them. These were in my mothers garden in Arizona.

This is our 'mature' Chincilla cat 'Aramis' looking down on my daughter's new Border Collie puppy 'Millie'.
Millie couldn't understand why Aramis didn't want to run around the garden and play. Aramis just thought Millie was stupid

This is our local station, appropriately named Kingsbury, which I don't ever remember using. I'm actually a little nearer to Wembley Park which I have used as it's on many more lines.

Some time ago I posted a pic of Temple Bar, the gateway that used to mark the City of London’s western boundary. This is the pillar that now stands on the site of the old gate.

Oh Satguru, I wish my mind worked that way, I went back and looked at the photo and just started laughing all over again. I'm sure that someone has thought about it, but whether they've done it I don't know.

Here's a photo of Acapulco Bay and the surrounding area from where our cruise ship was docked. I wasn't a big fan of this city. Too many people and they were very aggressive.

The main square in La Corunya, Spain which I visited a couple of weeks ago. It is being renovated and the scaffolding is hidden by a fake painted front to match the original which can be seen on the left.



It's a bit blurred - cheap disposable camera!

What are those white poles between the planters, Argus--flag poles?



Last photo of Seneca Rocks. I like this one because it was taken near sunset and due to their western exposure the rocks take on a pinkish hue (although they looked much better in person than they do in this photo). I could kick myself in the "bee-hind" (as Mother Goose put it! ) for not going to the top of the Rocks when I lived there...they were practically in my back yard; so close I could walk there! But anyway...this photo was taken at the same time/place, only it shows the visitor center at the foot of the Rocks.

Yes I believe they are. There were no flags around on the dock area. I guess they only use them for special occasions.

I was sitting on a neighbour's lawn today chatting when it started to rain quite hard. We quickly moved into his garage, and when I turned around there was a rainbow. I 'just happened' to have my camera with me, so I snapped a few pics. If you look closely, you can just see a second arc, starting just under the wire that crosses the photo horizontally.

Here is Lina, my helper, perched on the kitchen sink , getting ready to climb up and clean the cooker hood. She loves to climb, The other day there was nearly a catastrophe as Lina was up the ladder pruning a big tree in the garden, and Gnawra decided to follow her up the ladder and jump about! I didn't have the camera ready that time, but the ladder was very wobbly.

Impressive rainbow photo Liz.

Lina looks ready to spring into action Sara. The pose reminds me of the 'Kato/Inspector Clueso' arrangement. She doesn't leap on you from strange places without warning does she?

The RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) gardens at Wisley have a number of statues on display. Here is one of them:

We took a cruise through the Panama Canal a while ago. It was a very interesting experience. This is a shot of a cargo ship going through the canal next to our cruise ship.



The ships are moved through the canals by the small train engines you can see on either side of the canal. They are attached to the ships by large wires that they control to keep the ships straight in the canal. The big ships can have as many as 8 engines controlling them.

Larger different view
