    The travellers get anywhere don't they. Why would you stop there for heavens sake.

    saw a steam train going passed this morning so i checked to see if it would be coming back passed later on and at about 10.30 back it came...
    there were loads of people with camera's on the platform so not too easy to get a pic with a body in the way or indeed keep my body out of someone else's pics!

    hope you like!

    You would be amazed how many cars still come along the road and have to turn back not knowing about the bridge been closed.They should make up their mind whether to conserve the bridge or demolish it, and open up the road again
    I do hope they let the poor thing into the caravan awhile.

    Judging by the other previous photo of the travellers with the poor looking horse (with fur missing off it's legs), they evidently don't care for their animals very well

    Bertie, one of our two cats, knows I'm the alpha male in the house so doesn't get as friendly with me as he does with my wife and kids. Watching TV last night with one leg up on the pouffe, and he came and settled in. Such a rare event I made Ruth fetch my camera.

    So Sherlock, back to your drawing board!

    Curioser and curioser - just checked the date set on my camera and it was 17/12/06.

    So I can travel back in time as well as forward!

    PS
    Lenka - why on earth were you checking properties?

    Pablo, if you "right-click" on a picture, say Kevins, you should have an option to see the "Properties", this tell you who owns the pic, when it was taken etc, obviously the date on the camera needs changing as Kevin says, as on the properties it's earlier in the month / year.

    Better still, ask your grandson, bet he knows more about computer type stuff than his old grandad

    Ha, everyone knows everything more than me. It's a big job for me to get up in the morning. I still aint got a mobile phone, much to my girls chagrin. Just can't see the point.

    Lifes too short for me to go looking at properties. Don't even know what properties are no how. Thanks anyhow Martin.

    There is a good freeware program for viewing images. The same should be downloaded separately and install the plugins for this program.

    http://www.irfanview.net/

    IrfanView is a very fast, small, compact and innovative FREEWARE (for non-commercial use) graphic viewer for Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000, XP, 2003 , 2008, Vista, Windows 7.

    It is trying to be simple for beginners and powerful for professionals.

    IrfanView is trying to create new and/or interesting features in its own way, unlike some other graphic viewers, whose whole "creativity" is based on feature cloning, stealing of ideas and whole dialogs from ACDSee and/or IrfanView! (for example: XnView has been stealing/cloning features and whole dialogs from IrfanView, for 10+ years).

    IrfanView was the first Windows graphic viewer WORLDWIDE with Multiple (animated) GIF support.
    One of the first graphic viewers WORLDWIDE with Multipage TIF support.
    The first graphic viewer WORLDWIDE with Multiple ICO support.

    Sorry Lenka, I've just lost the will to live. I can't tell the difference between a load of letters.

    Christmas lights at Williamson's Tunnels, Edge Hill, Liverpool.

    It's well worth a visit to this fascinating early 19th C series of excavations and tunnels
