Nice setting, SatG - I think I would have been disappointed if it didn't have the ducks, all ponds need ducks. It should be a law! smile

A salt lake on our place .. very grainy just took it with the ipod while out and about this morning.

I saw this giant guitar in the Hard Rock Café at Yankee stadium, hence the pinstripes. It's been
signed by a number of the players - I can see Alex Rodriguez between the pick-ups.

I spotted this horned caterpillar on our gate yesterday. I loved the bright yellow colour but have no idea what family of moths or butterflies it belongs to:



Edit: Looks like it's a Pale Tussock (Calliteara pudibunda), a moth of the Lymantriidae family, found in Europe and Anatolia.

New modern houses have been as rare as hen's teeth in the last 20 years, but in this road where the cheapest houses are a few million they are still the norm, with many being completed in the last couple of years.

We took advantage of some really warm, sunny weather today and visited a local orchard store before having Thanksgiving dinner at my sister's house. There were all sorts of things going on, including a corn maze, hay rides, music and the buying of apples. There were also chickens, ducks and a pot-bellied pig, but they'll keep for another day. For now, here are some of the apples, guarded by an oversized wooden carving of a farmer.

I love the Lettuce Eat laugh There is a radio show in England on Absolute (Dave Gorman on a Sunday morning) that does Pun STreet and has all businesses that have names as puns. This would fit right in. smile


same lake - different side with some sun flare to top it off. Being grainy makes it look like a painting. :p

My cousin and her ex used to own a fish-and-chip shop called "Get Stuffed" and you could take that however you wished. They did do extremely generous servings so no-one could complain they didn't get enough to eat. But it was also my cousin's attitude to life. I've got photos somewhere - I'll have to dig them out and scan them.

When I lived in Spain there was a fish & chip place called "The Codfather" next door to a jazz bar called "Sax on the Beach".

That's lovely. In style and design it reminds me of the Burlington Arcade in London. Both are probably around the same era.

A typical London suburban scene, a red bus in Finchley. Following rules advice re number plates I have just edited my first photo for image removal. Yay!

Below the glass barrel-vaulted roof all is glistening Burmantofts ceramics in shades of browns, buffs and yellows: huge panels, little niches, grotesque animal heads and elegant lettering
