Sue, I thought you might like this one. This VW belongs to a young girl who lives around the corner from me. The car is painted like a ladybird (or ladybug to the American contingent). Its licence plate is "Ladybug 75".

That one is nice too. The white one of course is Herbie which is why it makes me smile.

It is a construction site! He calls it his work and all There is a sandpit right next to this pile of dirt but that is no fun apparently. His Dad even brings in a bucket load of dirt with the tractor ( a lot of dirt) and he'll spend literally hours spreading it out - building roads, creeks and dams. We get in trouble if we dare tread on it:p

It still has me fooled, still looks like a large scale construction site! I also had to google to find what a 'hills hoist' was. Now that I know, I can better imagine the 'construction site' scale

The garden leaves have taken on their autumn colours; this is the grapevine.

Love the ladybug car, MG, and another beautiful photo, picqero.

Today the entire Antelope Valley (the area where I live) is full of smoke blowing up from the San Diego and LA areas. Today I took this photo of the wind mills in Mojave, which you can barely see because of the haze.

That just sounds idyllic! It's a lovely arrangement.

Here is my craft room / office. Every now and then I do some actual bookwork there.

LOL - as it happens the ceiling had to be replaced in there last weekend so I had everything moved out, painted it on the Monday and spent Thursday putting it all back in and throwing out a lot of crap too. So that's why it's tidy - we'll wait a month and see what it's like then.

Well I tried to take a photo of the full moon but just as I was getting some shots my batteries went dead. I did get one but I couldn't hold the camera still enough. I thought it looked kind of spooky with the branches and such. Actually reminded me of the poor UFO photos you used to see back when camera's used film

A typical suburban London shot. A bus arrives at a stop in Finchley.

This is where I've been working for the last two weeks. This hospital is St John of God, another Catholic hospital, by coincidence. It's fairly new; it was built in 1994. I've been working in the Orthopaedic Department.

I'm still teaching my medical terminology and reception classes one day a week (Fridays), and recently have been asked to teach the accounts class as well, so between temping and training, my job is never boring.

Next week I am back at Mercy for three days a week, working for a bariatric clinic. What's bariatrics? I'm glad you asked - its medical terminology for obesity clinic. Greek 'baros' (weight) and 'iatrikos' (treatment or medical). Sounds much more impressive, doesn't it? (I'm not fat, I'm bariatrically challenged).

P.S. Edited to add - I haven't really made two posts on the same day. Because of the time difference, it's already Saturday here so the Ladybug photo was posted yesterday and this picture today.

I've shown a photo or two of this school bus perched on a rooftop before, but yesterday was the first time I noticed so many birds taking such an interest in it.

I already knew what bariatrics was about!

Last week it was announced that twenty (local) people each year will be funded by the taxpayers to have bariatric surgery at a small private hospital in the UK, the hospital in which I had my open heart surgery and I have to say it is a lovely hospital.

For those who are wondering what bariatric surgery is, it is stomach stapling or banding.

This is my old shopping centre in Hampstead Garden Suburb from yet another angle.



They are based on a set of German towers and the same on every corner.

Another image from my garden, this believe it or not is a giant Sequoia or (Sequoiadendron giganteum). It's about 15 years old, and about 1 metre tall. It was given to us as a wedding anniversary present a few years ago. If left alone, maybe it will look quite spectacular in a couple of thousand years from now

I thought I had remembered someone posting a photo of a giant sequoia last month -- just think Picqero, this is what your sequoia may look like in just a few hundred years!

When I was out in the back yard with Winston about an hour ago, the moon was up and full with a few clouds around it. Whilst I was still out the wind shifted all the clouds, and the sky was clear. By the time I went and got my camera the moon had disappeared behind a rather ugly blanket of clouds, but I took a photo anyway. The result was this rather moody shot, looking towards my neighbour's yard.

This is an indoor market in Papeete, Tahiti.
