  2. I made a quick visit to the city this morning to collect a couple of things and grab a pic or two. Things are starting to warm up (both weather-wise and in the party sense). If only I could have a dollar for every headache and sunburnt body around Zürich tomorrow!

    The calm before the storm. The first photo is of the Grossmuenster, the Limmat River and a cafe and the second of the fountain was taken at the same square as yesterday's elephant. Both areas will be packed with a sea of people this afternoon.

    Enjoy the weekend everybody.

    The village where my mom lives arranged some fun for kids, like pony carts, bouncy castles, wieners, cotton candy and a local motorcycle club took the kids for a spin.

    AI-S 28/2. I hope I don't break the rules with 5 pictures?

    Today, my friend Jo and I have an interesting schedule. We were invited by the City of Tettnang to support them with the mentoring of some kid while there is summer break. OK, just two took part - Max and Lennon, but it was fun. Both were really interested and stated they have learned a lot.

    (1) Discovering new points of view

    A Beach to Themselves by warth man, on Flickr

    Don't tell me that we English folk don't know how to have fun. Needle game here and the crowd is really getting behind them. Well, he really is behind them.

    It'll be nice to see the before and after shots, if you get a chance.

    Nice beach shot. I didn't know cricket was called "needle game". Interesting.

    Tough day... been pouring all day, plus I've been replacing items damaged from a near lightning strike, and replacing some worn out lighting fixtures - busy all day.

    So, the only shots I had time to get, was my mom, who was double dipping on her birthday. My daughter and her boyfriend came into town to visit and my daughter made (from scratch), a three layer chocolate cake, with coconut butter cream frosting.

    Another day, another cake (cropped this one)

    She's still got some wind to blow out a whole box of candles (bit out of focus, as I had little time)

  16. Just me being a bit sarcastic Paul. I shouldn't be. However it might have been a needle game between two deadly rivals for all I know, but I guess there would have been more spectators had that been the case. I could not find a way into the ground so had to shoot this one through the mesh of a security gate.
     
  17. Your Mum looks wonderful for 92. Must be all that home cooking!
