Lovely pond, satguru, and I never get tired of looking at your snow pictures, agony.

This is a funny photo of our dog, Ellie. She was in the middle of a yawn or something, but the picture makes her look like she's biting my daughter's knee!

ren -- that toy looks like great fun, with no batteries required.

veronikkamarrz -- Thanks, I wish I could talk to my great-great-great-grandfather and ask him all sorts of questions like yours. Through his pictures, he comes across as a fascinating, warm man who lived a very interesting life.
I guess that is some form of an angel of death swooping across the bottom of the drawing and his scalping 'utensil' is empty -- thus, death didn't snag any of my g/g/g/grandpop's pals that year... but they were hiding from death! And when death flew on by, it was safe to come out of hiding!


Back to the 21st century... here is little foster-dog Kasey, comfy in her new bed, with an old sweater that's become her favorite blanket. Trouble is, this was two weeks ago, and shortly after this was taken, Waydon (a.k.a. Bad Kitty) took over the bed and won't let the dog near it. Thus the start of a dog-cat feud. Now the dog tries to keep the cat away from me. So, I ordered another bed from Amazon. Just throw a little more $$ at the problem!

I like that, ren!

My living room looked a bit gloomy after I turned my Christmas wall hanging around to the dark (and as I thought, reasonably plain) side, so I hung a garland of plastic daisies in front of it to brighten it up. Thought this oversize wooden ladybird would prefer the flowers to sitting on my bookshelf



(Until I looked at this photo, I had never noticed that there are tiny trees and stars all over the 'dark' side of the wall hanging! Shows you what using the macro setting can do, eh?)

This pot of Stilton cheese came in with my Christmas presents. There was about half an inch of wax over the top of the cheese to seal it. There was a warning not to eat the wax! . I didn't but alas, the cheese is now all gone. The pot seems far too good to throw away though.

This house in Stanmore is nearly built, and one of the rare new modern houses to be built in the country this decade. Not many people realise modern is actually a style and nothing to do with when it was built, and actually started before 1900 by the Bauhaus movement and Le Corbusier. They reached the peak of their popularity in the 60s and 70s only to be replaced by mock Victorian monstrosities that add to the existing preponderance of genuine ones. The builders just pick an easy target and people are desperate to live anywhere.

The only photos taken on my camera today (other than fuzzy ones) were of me, so here's one that Teddy posed for yesterday.

Planes, trains and automobiles.

Well, a plane seen from the train as I pass Prestwick airport.



Was going to put a link to a "shaky and dark" video, can't seem to upload to photobucket though.

Finally uploaded video. Dont know if this works though.

No.

A pair of houses in Golders Green actually painted the same and recently, which is very rare. These are similar to the ones next door in Hampstead Garden Suburb, but actually often bigger but built closer together and nearer to the road. The are also quite a bit cheaper as well.

ren,
It's a windy and icy night here right now and I just got jealous seeing your orchids! Makes me wish all the more for spring to come, but that's months away, so I will just enjoy your flowers. Sandy

Continuing the weather report from hereabouts this is what my back yard looked like this morning. It's warmish, so the streets immediately became slushy, and not too much has accumulated, even though it has been snowing lightly all day.

Sometimes when I travel for work, I am lucky to have a state park campground near the destination, so I don't always have to stay in hotels. This was in September at Gifford Pinchot State Park, south of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Having a view like this in the morning sure beats a parking lot view!

Sandy, you are welcome to look at my flowers any time, but you have to promise to put some of yours here in the spring. I am fed up with orchids!

This is the Nelson Mandella Childrens Rose which we bought from the kids school to raise funds. They begin a nice deep orange colour and end up almost a pale yellow. More different coloured ones to follow.

My friend was going to throw out these wooden Japanese flowers, as she was tired of them. I add some extras - white silk roses, which I bought at a car boot sale.

I've been in north Wales the past five days. Whilst descending from the summit of 'Tryfan' on Saturday, an RAF mountain rescue helicopter staged a rescue just below me:


No-one seriously injured by the way

Too dark for any photos today, here's one showing how you can ruin any view with urban decay. The shop on the right has been derelict as long as time, there is graffitti on every surface (including the bridge which had been landscaped) and the car which hasn't been cleaned maybe since it was new.
This is the railway bridge on Kilburn High Road.

This is a picture of the London Eye - better known as the Millenium Wheel. I did not go on it however as I am not fond of heights!

The beautiful Colorado River as it flows between California and Arizona winding its way to Lake Havasu City. The mountains in the background are called The Needles.

I don't know how many of you have heard of Texas Hold 'Em Poker, but I just got a hand I've never had before...and may never see again, so got a picture of it.

Woo Hoo! That's beautiful Dave.

I took this photo mainly trying to get the sun going down behind the apartment building, but as it turns out, I rather like all the different snow-covered levels and angles.
