no commentary, and the weather as text on pictures of ski resorts, with tyrolean music with a small traditional oom-pa-pa band playing landler and polka
for about 90 minutes
And I found it very relaxing with an excellent old style tuba player which was followed by some gentle yoga

more weather

I could not see myself in the audience anyway
may be tommorrow on Channel 4 deal or No Deal

meanwhile I sliced the box of limes ready for the freezer

dark grey clouds moved away

and the kitchen window shows how it was raining
wet and very windy and gusty

snow today

over Bosworth Drive and Chelmsley Wood
the shadow of Merton House is like a giant sundial at about 5:30pm gmt as the storm goes away to the east

there is another storm about 10 miles to the west over Birmingham obscuring the rays of the setting sun behind me

I forgot to turn the flash off - droplet to the left

Tate Modern to Trafalgar Square and Euston

over the wobbly suspension bridge for my first time

the new stiffeners

cable anchorage

more stiffeners

looking back at the Tate Modern

Millenium Bridge on Google Maps on a long shadowed wintery morning

further down stream towards the sea the river Thames flows through Tower Bridge

upstream and sunset was about 10 minutes ago

just picked up a new load of tourists

The Globe theatre in black and white

and a few moments ago two stark naked girls wearing nothing but big smiles ran by
but my videophone was in my pocket

film crew - therefore the streakers

I looked through a window like the pair at the other end of the pool

headquarters of the Salvation Army

a reminder

The College of Arms is the official repository of the coats of arms and pedigrees of English, Welsh, Northern Irish and Commonwealth families . . . college of arms - Google Search

and on the top deck of a bus St Pauls to Charing Cross station
where seeing a Car Phone Warehoue in the Strand I got off

I nearly fell off one of those stools when I was trying to put the new 1 gb memory chip into my K800i videophone

at the bus stop in Trafalgar Square

then the bus northwards
and a short walk to some Real Ale and then Euston Station

69 Cobourg Street, NW1 2HH
0207 681 4930
Mon – Sat 11.30 – 23, Sun 12 – 22.30
Timothy Taylor Landlord plus large rotation of guest beers

This open-plan, one-bar, corner pub can at times have up to nine guest beers available in addition to the permanent Landlord, five of which can be on gravity. This range reduces to around five in the hotter, summer months (when the outside seating is welcome) and, in general, can vary as a result of demand around football fixtures. Food is served Mon – Fri 12 – 15 and 17-21 (hot and cold snacks) and at weekends 12-17 (roasts).
Close to Euston main line and Euston Square tube.
Formerly Jolly Gardeners

London Euston to Birmingham New Street

£6 for 6 cans from Threshers on the concourse but £2 10p each from the bar on board teh Virgin train - one can every thirty minutes got me home in good form after a long and tiring day

and the next photos were saved on my new 1gb memory chip

Curzon Street was dark

and on arrival at New Street I walked to the 97 bus stop

and the lift was still broken

and the deserted Bullring was getting ready for ready for St Patrick's Day

new blogger bug not yet fixed

images correctly formatted for the other blog photographs and walks: IMHX 2007, International Materials Handling Exhibition

remembering Mum at Marston Green station bus stops

DEXION a magical name - I remember when the Dexion slotted angle product came out - and I see that I was eleven years old Dexion - About Us - History: "Dexion started in the UK in 1947."
Simplicity itself, the new system consisted of shaped metal strips with regularly punched slots. These strips can be
bolted together to construct racks and shelving to fit almost any available space. The name for the new angle system sprang from the Greek word for ‘right’ – ‘dexion’. Also, from this sprang the now famous ‘circle and tick’ symbol used in the Dexion trademark.
