I just found this nice row of shops in Maida Vale which looks quite continental to me.

Composition #1: "The Aftermath" by artist Nancy.
I stayed up all night finishing my translation cause it had to be handed in this morning willy-nilly and the consecuences are devastating



(I don't know why I keep forgetting to take down the glasses before going for another one )

Loved the boats romeo, and satguru's shops, soooo english!

Four pages of 'catch up' - and well worth it! Great photos everyone. I especially love the winter scenes.

Here is a slightly bemused looking kitty at the garden centre.

Ah, I love both kitties, the one for the springy neck and bemused look, the other for that lovely pink tongue!

My sister and I stopped at a garden and gift shop when we were out today. This magnificent chap wasn't for sale, though...

No Sherry, it's Brancaster. There's a pub just behind where I was standing with a balcony that overlooks the marsh.

On New Year's Eve I kept my sister's two dogs. New Year's morning they are outside along with my two. This visitor was sitting in the backyard watching the four of them. I wondered if he was considering dachshund or terrier for breakfast... By the time I got my camera he had ventured about 3 telephone poles from our yard. (Just to get an idea of the size. He stood about 20" high.) Best guess is a Red Tailed Hawk.

That's a real 'Calendar' image shellsie; excellent capture and macro

This is part of the early morning view from our front window; expensive houses, but rather small gardens.

Wow, fantastic bee Shelley! Lioness, that's a great shot of your kitty; so cute.

The last two days I've posted the La Tuna Federal prison. For those prisoners that have been good enough to warrant having a window, this is part of the view they get to the east of the prison. On the other side of that mountain lies El Paso, Texas.

Fantastic bee (could it be one of my sisters?)

That looks an unfriendly landscape CS - Lovely houses Picqero - sometimes a small garden is a blessing methinks.

Whilst at the local church photographing a tap (faucet) - found this little secret stairway - all a bit spooky!

Here is one of my favourite styles of houses, Bauhaus modern, mainly built in the 1930s but first created at the turn of the century. There are very few in the world and the ones in Britain found a very hard time being accepted by the local councils, so the biggest development (only a handful) is on a private estate in Devon. These (three altogether) are in Ruislip and probably more recent looking at the garages.

I envy you Copago for those tomato plants! we had a small place where we grew our vegetables but had to get rid of it some years ago and had to eat the tasteless tomatoes they sell you here
(please share some once they're ripe)

Beautiful neighborhood picqero! and that stairway really gave me the creeps

New car It's a Toyota HiLux mostly to be used as a station vehicle but will keep it for good for a few years. See that air vent in the middle of the bonnet? It's NOT in the middle and it's driving me nuts - it's about two inches to the side and I so want to shift it over. Just call me Monk.

Along the same lines as "the beatings will continue until morale improves," the snow and ice pictures will continue until I see more beach pictures.

(bhs, you're holding up your end)



I've always liked the way trees cradle the snow.

I'm afraid you're still spelling it wrong; it's picqero with a 'c', but never mind 'cos I don't

This is our local brewery, McMullens of Hertford; the main building shown here dates from the 19th century.

Here's a nice path I found in Ruislip. I see NSW have run out of the three numbers and are now adding a letter at the end like we had to in 1963. First one of those I've come across.

Catch removed (cockles cooked on board probably) and nets left to dry in this morning's sun.

lol - Only you would notice that, Sats! I think you can still get the 3letter/3number ones but there are a few varieties about now.


The black goat here is Hindu and the other one is her kid. There are goats running wild all over the place. We had Hindu as a pet about 11 years ago from when she was a couple days old and she got seperated from her Mum. She hung around for about five years then took off and started a life of her own. About four years ago she was gone for five months and came home with newborn twins in tow, hung around for a few months then took off again and this is the first time she has come home since although we did see her a few months ago in the paddock when the kid she has now was first born.

So yesterday morning I went down to feed the animals and out from behind a bush came running this huge black thing. Took a second to work out who it was. The kid isn't quite so happy to be here and won't let you go within a few metres of him. Hindu is looking suspiciously fat (and with a case of mastisis) so we wouldn't be surprised if she adds to her family sometime soon.

So funny that she just turns up like this - is she home to have a baby? She is getting really old so is she home to die? Is she home for good or just passing through? (She is still there this morning) And the other thing is that she is a feral goat and they can wander hundreds of miles through fences and what not - the fact that she is still here on our place after five+ years and hadn't gone further afieled and been mustered up by the neighbours (feral goats are worth a bit) is unreal.

There you go - more than you ever needed to know about a pet goat She is hard to photograph becuase she is soooo black.
