She got into the toilet paper again today. Didn't spread it around the house this time. Just tore it into little bits in the bathroom. Grrr...but she gives kisses so what can I do?

This is our local TV station, just a half mile away from my house. Christian Broadcasting, or something - WDLI. Interestingly, it was once owned by that disturbing Jim Bakker person (and his other allegedly hellbound associates ). I took the photo a couple of weeks ago because of none of the TV history or [ahem] "importance", though. I just thought the sky looked nicely expressive above it.

You could edit the post and try re-linking to the smaller image.

This is the DJ of a local radio station, at a charity event this morning!
Naff costume, but he said it was nice and warm!

Katt's new favourite place to curl up is on Winston's winter coat, which Katt pulled off the table where I'd left it onto the floor. Winston is not amused by this turn of events!

Thanks TW, I realised that I changed albums but then forgot to change the link. Here is another one of the caves.

I tried doing the "click here" thing but it wouldn't work even though I tried a couple of different ways

An 'Air Plant' I have growing outside in bloom. They do not need soild to grow in nor water and seem to take moisture from out of the air. Funny looking but rather an unusual flower.

These ladies are rather scary. They demand money for having their photo taken. They live in one of the local walled villages. Anyway, here is 10HK$'s worth!

A piece of petrified wood, about 35 million years old, from the Sahara Desert in central Libya. It's about 25 centimetres in length.
There's a larger image here

What a beautiful cross-stitch, Peggy! I bet that was a bit time consuming.

Here's our Christmas tree, which we put up on Saturday.

Hamish the piper usually sits in my front window, but he's joined me in the computer room for the Christmas season, because the window has been taken over by Santas! Hamish was a raffle prize one Robbie Burns night at a restaurant I used to frequent in Spain. My Mum won him (she was on holiday visiting me), but gave him to me. She knows how much I love the pipes! (I mean that sincerely, by the way.)

Those are Hydrangers lioness and they bloom around Christmas time in the Southern parts - hence are often called Christmas flowers.

Here are a few captures from a larger sheet of illustrations that show people how to get the powerchair in and out of the car. You should see the rear suspension take a dip as the hoist takes the weight!

Very clever. I know at ShopMobility we have some scooters which can be taken to pieces in order to fit in a car but each piece still has to be lifted so a hoist is a great idea.

Yesterday we saw the inmates of this walled Village called Kat Hing Wai in Kam Tin, in the New Territories.

My local pub is almost under the flight path into Prestwick airport.
This is an Atlas Air Freight jet just about to land.

I have a dear friend in England who is an Atlas Air Freight pilot - I wonder if it's him up there?

Maybe that's his legs dangling down from the nose of the aircraft. He's ready to start running like mad when they get to the runway.

Not the more common mute swan, this is a winter visitor to England from Siberia, a Bewick's Swan.

An interesting mix of great photos, all.

Every six months another Test Pilot School class graduates here at Edwards AFB. We attended a graduation this past Saturday, where Chuck Yeager was the guest speaker. (Yeager was the first man to fly faster than the speed of sound, for those not aware.) Not a great photo, but I had to crop out some people's heads. Interesting stories he had to tell!

Great photos, really interesting to see little bits of other lives.

This is my friends small old dog on the beach having found a trigger fish lying around! Woe betide anyone who takes it from her, She is near enough blind and deaf but copes well.

Oh, lynfra, your friend's doggie could be my Winston's sister! Same ears, similar colouring and all! What a sweetie

Djsgal, I'm jealous - I'd love to see/hear Chuck Yeager.
