Re: What you doing this weekend?

I will be coming home to Shields for a brief visit, first for two years and very much looking forward to sitting on the Lawe Top to enjoy the views of the harbour and Tynemouth. Also a visit to the pubs at the Mill Dam with views of the river. Reason? Baptism of my great niece. It will be lovely to ...

Re: So Much Money in Paint

I was just listening to the news and they were talking about a young woman who is not far off becoming a Billionaire from the sale of women's make-up. Who would have thought there was so much to be made from paint and vanity? Only the other day, I was recalling to my sister, how as a young lad in t...

Re: Baby Groundhog

can you eat them? Andy, you disappoint me. What is it about the human race that they cannot look at any other living thing on this planet without wondering if we can eat it? It reminds of the caution some people have about searching for intelligent life in outer space and warn that if we find it an...

slow down on the port, red wine and prawns ralph If only Andy... :-) I used to love Port and enjoy a social drink generally, but I have found that in recent years, alcohol of any kind has a very diminished appeal. I do like prawns, but as most of those available I supermarkets these days are nearly...

Re: Some pics of China.....

I've had my knee drained 3 times over the years it gives instant relief if your knee is swollen with fluid, they do it with a rather large needle but its feels more uncomfortable rather than hurting, they just stick you once but draw off the fluid in my case 3 or 4 times then with the same needle g...

Re: Posting Photos

Oh it’s a brilliant camera!! I was deciding between the canon mk111 and Nikon d750 but since I had a previous Nikon DSLRs with all lenses that I already have, I opted for the Nikon d750 and it’s a good full framed camera. I agree re: too heavy, I wanted to take it on my China tour, but it would hav...

Re: Some pics of China.....

My left knee developed a problem 3 months ago. I could barely bend if. I had X-ray and ultra sound last month and found out, arthritis (well no shyte Sherlock, I am in my mid 60’s) and fluid in the knee. It’s this fluid I wonder about. So in the beginning of the tour I was going up and down huge bu...

One of the things that makes Facebook attractive to many, is the ease with which you can share photos, videos etc. When I first joined this site, I used Photobucket to post photos, but that became increasingly complicated as they started to try and increase their revenue stream, which while underst...

Re: Posting Photos

Right now we have lots of rabbits around and so pretty soon we will see the foxes arrive to dine on the plentiful food source. As the rabbits are taken, the foxes slowly fade away to another hunting ground. They seem to leave enough rabbits to regenerate. Mother nature seems to know what she is doi...

Excellent photos Danet. It is very hard to imagine how so much work could be devoted to making the terracotta army for a man who was dead, or the belief that they could in some way participate in activities beyond the grave, but that doesn't detract from the wonder of it all or the very high standar...
