picqero,
What gorgeous creatures! Their "backs" make me want to burrow in, they look so fluffy and cushy.
That is a lot of candy, Sara! How would you ever know which ones to choose? Sandy

What a variety of pictures on here today!

This one's a little jumbled for a photo, but it's the milkhouse yesterday afternoon at Merrymead Farm, in the Philadelphia suburbs. They produce and sell great-tasting milk and cream there.

Here we have something that is fast disappearing from this city's streets - the humble phone booth. There are so few around that I'm being forced to spend my Christmas money on a cell/mobile phone! (When you don't drive, there are times when you need to call a cab to get home with your shopping...)

And it looks like one of those booths doesn't even have a phone in it, Liz!

I posted a photo of the engine from the middle car in this picture on the weekly theme thread. From left to right they are a 1926 Reo, 1928 Buick, and a 1926 "something".

Great cars, djsgal!

Has anyone ever seen a rainbow on the ground? Yesterday while in Southern California, after leaving all the rains behind, I got this shot. This rainbow was practically on the ground and was really neat looking. The photo just doesn't do it justice.



A different view of it on the ground.

That is amazing Lisa! I wonder what causes that. We get some weird and wonderful sights on here don't we?
A bit boring today. These are samples of HK public transport. The red cabs only ply from Town and the green ones are for the NT(New Territories). Red ones charge more on the meter, and this one must have cost its passenger quite a bit and it is waiting in the northern NT (Fanling) for someone to take it back to town.
The green minibus companies are privately run. They hold 16 people and you have to hail them. There are not many places that you cannot get one. This one will go around our villages and back. They are very cheap. There are also red minibuses which are Government controlled and run mostly in Town.End of lesson

A rather nice house and garden in Edgware where I used to live (although not in this actual road but very close to it). The other side of the tracks though, literally. They were virtually in my garden to be precise.

Eastbound on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, last week. Allegheny Mountain might not look tunnel-worthy here, but it is. The tunnels were originally conceived in the 1880s for railroad use by William Vanderbilt and Andrew Carnegie, but remained unfinished till the Turnpike was constructed in 1938-1940. I think Allegheny's scheduled for rebuilding, but I'm not sure. When I went through the westbound way, there were icicles dangling from the ceiling all through the tunnel.

Here's a zippy little sidewalk snowplow.

ClaraSue, your rainbow on the ground is amazing. And funny too, because my husband and I were just talking the other day about rainbows on the ground, and how my dad had seen one once in New Mexico, and then there's your photo! Really good shot.

My oldest daughter Erin, who's almost 11, just completed an art course that she really enjoyed. Here's some of the art that she brought home.

I know that view very well TW, I've been there regularly and you also have Debenhams behind you there.

Here is a view of this side of Hampstead from Golders Hill Park.



If anyone has a few million to spare they can live here, it's literally one of the most expensive areas in the world.

The view out my front window around 9:15 this morning. It doesn't really show just how hard the wind was blowing.

Sans the snow, seems like we are having the same weather, Liz. It's been extremely windy here the last two days. We had a wind gust clocked at 54mph on Monday, and the sustained winds was at 46mph! It was only about 25mph today, but will increase again tomorrow.

I always keep my eyes open for interesting houses, and this pair (the bigger one of them shown here) in Stanmore caught my attention in the background as I drove past.

In contrast to yesterday, today was sunny and cold, with little wind, as this week's photo of the river, taken around 11:30 this morning, shows.

It's the end of January so this thread is now locked. A new thread has been started for February's photos. Thanks to everyone.
