The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Manchester - Big Wheel

Big Wheel , Ferris Wheel - I'm not sure what the correct name is ?? Perhaps we have some new and technical term. We have the London Eye - is this the Manchester Eye ?

I wonder what my great-grandparents would have thought of this ?

I've certainly no inclination to go up in it ...

I dislike fair ground rides, I had a nervous breakdown (!) when I went to Alton Towers, scared myself skinny, really frightening.

However, one thing I always adore is the big wheel. As long as I don't examine the darn bolts and nuts too much while I am on there.

This Wheel looks fun. I would definitely ride on this one. I have been on the London Eye about 6 years ago, it was truly worth it, amazing views, and not scary at all. G.J.

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
