The latest photo of Bryn, taken at Wapley Hill in Herefordshire on Tuesday afternoon. I was taking a photo of the light filtering through the trees but he managed to sneak in. More photos of him in the Hercules thread

It's a beautiful place Mr D. Bryn had a wonderful time exploring the piles of leaves, collecting interesting twigs and larch cones, and disturbing dozy pheasants which would flap into the air screaming alarm calls if he or I got within 100 yards of the tree in which they were perched. He didn't bother to chase them, just looked on in amazement as they flew off.

Australia is in it's seventh year of dryness.
I thought Oz got its share last year?

They really are stupid. If they just made a sharp exit no-one would know that they were there.

I trust The Ttrabb reprisal battalion, have the name of the person who Cut Off FSL Drapers connection. There must be a few; whose aim could still be trusted.
Now get a good sleep all of you.

Hello all

Reporting for duty again after being absent on the high seas for most of the month - still - did bring a nice liner to Mr D's part of the world the other week, and escorted same home from New York this week - Dubai's gain and our loss!

Do I need to read in - or pick up from here and go on???

It's only to stop the leccy escaping!!

If it's an ELCB (this may be obvious) unplug every thing if it then will stay closed try each appliance in turn.
(If it doesn't youve got a problem - sorry)


Todays test

Any Ideas?

This is from an anarchist website. Good stuff!

Blimey... you spend 15 years struggling against global capitalism and then the bloody thing collapses of its own accord. Building societies, banks and all manner of financial institutions are going to the wall.. City wide-boys, hands bloody from their ruthless assault on the world’s poor, are flinging themselves in front of trains – and nobody’s had to lift a finger – let alone throw a Molotov.
With that I bid you adieu for a week. Tis half term and a dad has gotta do, what a dad has gotta do.

Not quite the kind of website you are supposed to access from work, or is it ?

Back from somewhat longer stint than usual, seems definitely breezier up top. I see the usual suspects are still here. Don't you have homes/pubs/work to go to???

Just a couple of pics from our recent holidays.

Ship at Kalymnos Harbour


Asceplion. Home of Hippocrates on Kos.


View of windmills (for Juud) at Little Venice, Mykonos

Little Venice is quite gay friendly. Checkers ordered a fruit punch drink and the owner gave it to me. He lit up at said "ooh, fruit punch is for you sir" when I gave it to Checkers.

Arty shot by Checkers. Same restaurant.


Lions at Delos, birthplace of Apollo. This are replicas, real ones in the museum.


Cute little church in Paros.


Stunning interior of this church at a Nunnery (shudder!!) at Syros.


Pretty town. Syros. Hard to get baklava...


View from our room.


Where the Elgin marbles should be on the Parthenon.
