Mon Dieu!

Couldn't resist this shot during August's visit to France - those cheeky French, eh?

But 1000m?

Variety is the Spice of Life

It's been a colourful week. Work, as always dominates, but through a series of chance conversations/meetings, I caught up with some old colleagues some of whom I had not seen in 10 years aswell as meeting some new & interesting people.

On the road again for a few days, apologies to Smoo (aka 'number one fan') who used to expect her daily updates - I'm afraid (and she knows it) real life keeps getting in the way.

Whatever your week holds in store, I hope it has variety, colour and always a little spice!

Retrospective & Introspective

Sifting through some old horsey pictures for a friend and came across this one again. I make no apology for repeating an old favourite. Mind you, I've just realised the front page is a little dominated by black & white, so for some more colour, here's the retrospective part two.

That jacket strapped to the saddle has always bothered me about this shot, but when you've been caught in a Montanan hail storm on what had been a t-shirt-is-all-you-need May afternoon, you'll never make the same mistake twice.

As the rain pours down again across many parts of Britain, my thoughts go out to all those dealing with the resultant mess. I'm convinced the increased flooding each year is due to changes in our land management, but it's not an area I understand much about. And, like many other social, economic, urban and rural problems in England, preventative action and long term solutions, seem to be lacking.

Time for 'Change' over here too I think.

One For The Girls

Have you ever been flicking through the channels and, hang on a minute, let me re-phrase are watching tv whilst the man of the house is flicking through the channels and Oh! "Go back a minute .... who is THAT?" The 'THAT' in question was Tyrone Power Jr

Star of the silver screen in the 30's - 50's, tragically he died of a heart attack whilst filming a typically swashbuckling scene in Spain in 1958 at the age of only 44 (I have learned all this from the wonderful worldwide interweb) Phwoar as they say in these parts.

And so, pardon the departure from normal topics/photos, I felt I should share with the girls. (Or boys of course, if that's your thing)

Been busy round here of late, usual stuff. But the fun part was picking up a new (ish) car today, Italian of course! And far more economical, fantastico! So, I was thinking about cars, movie stars etc. and thought I'd start up a MeMe. Here goes:

1. First car

2. Fave star

3. Oh bollocks, I'm bored with this, make up your own ending.

Ciao tutti!
