More beautiful scenery over the past couple of posts Brian.  I really do like the last one of the 'green bridge' walkway over the motorway; a great aerial shot.

A couple of my views from yesterday's visit to London (the boats were my lunchtime view and such a peaceful haven within a stone's throw of the Tower of London). Jules

Hi all,

Jules, I have not been to London for quite time, you reminded me, it might be a nice visit Happy


We had the Shine Walk in Glasgow Saturday night and it was really nice! Too pity, the pictures are not that good.

But! Yesterday, we had a visit at work - there are two CRUK volunteers doing 3peaks challenge 4 CRUK and they are so so so nice people! I admire their dedication and if you want to read something nice (they post photos too!), the link is here, it is worth reading it:


Have a great day,

Hi Gemini

Yes, really enjoyed the day out thank you and never get tired of walking around London.

My newest grandchild (3 grandsons and 1 grand-daughter now) is very cute and just four weeks old.  I am not a 'spoiler' but do love spending time having cuddles when I see the family and of course playing with his older sister who turned 2 in May.

Hope you feeling better today and that the nuisance mouth ulcers will soon be gone.  Take care.  Jules

Hi  Zuzanka

London is my home town but I never get tired of having a wander and am sure you would enjoy a return visit when you can find the opportunity.

Always admire those taking part in the various walks/challenges and thanks for sharing the link.

Take care.  Jules

Good morning friends,

Still recovering from our show, Saturday and Monday were good but Sunday, although it sttarted off quite good, died a death as soon as the rain set in. So pleased we were in the house not the marque as we would have been standing in water plus it would have been quite chilly to say the least. We all did very well and I had so much interst in our club I had trouble trying to man my stall plus look after the club display stand. I sold all my cats and both elephants. I had taken my older laptop and had it playing photos of peoples work. Have now decided we must make a video with people talking and demonstrating their work as this will be an even bigger attraction. Here are some photos of peoples work.Brian.

Thanks Brian, it is lovely seeing the beautiful craftsmanship and such a great variety on display.  Difficult to choose a favourite but the burr oak bowl certainly caught my personal eye!  So pleased that despite the blip in the weather, you had two very good days and must be rewarding to get lots of interest in the Club and make some sales yourself.  Hopefully your energy will come back over the coming days as such of lot of work goes into these events by you.

Wishing you a pleasant and peaceful weekend with Mrs B.  Jules

Thanks Jules. We also had some good laughs as well. Great bunch of blokes.

Carved love spoon

All these are made from pallettes

More hand crafted wooden toys. 

I hope you like the items shown the last few days. We had one comment from a lady who said, "Thank you guys, You have really really made my day". That one comment meant a lot to me as I tried hard to show the diverse talents we have in our club, Brian
