Happy Birthday Kevin, hope you had a great day and got the camera you wanted :)

As mere younglings at 50, we did BBC Big Weekend at Scone Palace in June.  The Friday was cultured, Eddie Reader, Evelyn Gleny, Nigel Kennedy, the Saturday was carnage (the shortest queue was the Pimms tent.... say no more) Noel Galagher/Simple Minds/Amy McDonald.. but excellent 2 days. 

We also went to Cambridge to see a-Ha/Thompson Twins/OMD at Cambridge United ground also in June ... nothing quite like live music :)

Happy Birthday, Kevin.  Life begins at 60!

Best wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

Eddie Reader, Nigel Kennedy, Simple Minds, Amy McDonald, a-Ha, the Thompson Twins ("Into the Gap: album plus 12'' mixes is one of my all-time favourites), and OMD would have been my choices. 8-)

Happy Birthday, Kevin (from someone who'd probably prefer to be seen in the mosh pit as long as there were mattresses scattered on the ground :-[)

Hi All,

Well it was a bigger task than I thought, but using Vistaprint, not as complicated  :thumbsup:

I have now put together a complete step by step history of the building of "Windmill Hill"  :claphappy:

There are 231 captioned photographs over 60 pages :o but I am sorry I can't show you any of it as it is trapped in Vistaprint's web.  :(

I will get it printed next week, so can show you then. I can however put up some new photos, and will do so later.

On the new camera front, pennies did arrive  :D :D :D It still takes an age for cheques to clear, and as soon as a couple do, I can get a new camera, and take scenic pictures for an accompanying album

Then onwards and upwards planning "Harbourside"  ;)

All best wishes
Kevin

 :beers:
