Ireland

(viewed 1317 times)
I didn't get much chance to stop anywhere pretty this time round (again). The truck's just too flippin' big to get (and stop) anywhere nice. Often I'll see a really spectacular scene while driving through the countryside but by the time I've found a safe place big enough to stop in I'm either surrounded by trees or gone round the wrong side of a hill.
The B/W shots are taken from an industrial estate in Kilkenny and the sunset ones are from the freight port here in Belfast (I'm waiting to get on the night boat back to Liverpool).
Those hills over the back of Belfast (what are they called? Help) are always good for a nice view. A few weeks ago there was cloud coming in from the west, behind the hills, and it started rolling over the edge like liquid nitrogen from a cryogenic vat. Pretty spectacular, but I was driving down the Motorway at the time. Typical.------

Be it only at the closing of your day
You can sit and watch the moon rise over Cladagh
And see the sun go down on Galway Bay

This should keep me busy for a few days!

Annie's nearly finished her garden table make-over project.
Lovely Sunflower mosaic with lead sheet around the edging and on the drawer front.
Looks great, weighs half a ton.

Operation Market Garden remembered

Sixty three years ago, in Septenber 1944, something quite extraordinary took place quite near here.
Most people know the story.
Today a nation remembers.

Do you Sudoku?

(viewed 604 times)
The O.E.D. Has just published this year's new additions to their dictionary.
How long will it be before "Sudoku" is added? Is it already in there?
"I sudoke"
"We have sudoked"
"They are sudoking"
"I just threw this bloody sudoku book out the window"
