thursday portraits

I am going to try new blogger again
at least it uploads the images in order
just in case here is a selelction of what went on yesterday

from Bristol and thank you for a good clean job fixing the door telephone

with a wagon load of gear

I could hear the sound of the approaching masonry drills - the two installers started on the tenth floor and worked their way down Merton House to me on the seventh

just quality from apple and ancestry

without the flash
smile :-) because I can see you on our new TV door telephone

but I have not read the manual yet

The sunset reflected in the Fire Control as I set out for Solihull

In Firefox on Mac OS 10.4.8 a very high quality image of 1841 England census on and below Family Tree Maker 16 on WinXP on Parallels on my Mac Book Pro with an Apple cinema screen above

portrait fixes in old blogger

looking up ORWELL PASSAGE on the map of United Kingdom |
and standing on Allison street - Google Maps
with my back to the Digbeth Police station, and the coppers towing away a badly parked car
