    Thank you Chris, I thought it was just me. It was the ease with which it was put across...I thought I must have missed something. Black dogs have come up once or twice, but the Red Wolf that prowls but once every two years. That's news to me.
    Nice pics though.

    We have Bienial wolves all around the city center, they pop up in lots of places. They are mostly black but I spotted this red one at the Bluecoat. perhaps we should start a thread for wolf spotting

    Love this description: The wolves echo an eternal, universal city yet describe something feral and disruptive of everyday experience.

    Interesting... and a bit of irony there too. Of course the symbol of Rome, known as the eternal city, is the wolf suckling the twins Romulus and Remus. But I am not sure the Liverpool wolf is meant to be related to the wolf of Rome is it?

    Cool pic, Lindy.

    I hate hearing them called snow globes though. Maybe wrongly but I was brought up calling them snowstorms. Snow globes sounds o american to me. No offence meant to our american cousins

    On a walk along the canal yesterday saw plenty of coots and ducks but not many geese, they`d all emigrated to the locks

    Yeah, I think it might be an Americanism.

    We never called them snow globes.

    I called this one a snow globe though because everyone is calling it that

    Yes great photograph, Joe! But Brrrrrrrrrr. Oudeis, many thanks for reminding me that this is St. Andrew's Day. I shall be attending the St. Andrew's Day dinner of the St. Andrew's Society of Baltimore on Thursday at a local hotel. I wrote their bicentennial history several years ago.

    Ha, it's funny, I can't really remember what we called them. We had them when we were kids.
    I think we just called them snow shakers or snow storms. You can get glitter shakers too.
    I don't recall saying snow globe.
