The Past

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

Manchester Central Library

The "Library" has been subject to renovation and upgrade for some time. St.Peter's Square is undergoing Metro work soon and we'll see the platforms moved as I understand it.
So it is all go down in this area of the city.

The Path ...

This handy little path is suitable for walking the dog - it runs from Gleneagles Avenue to Newhouse Road.

Nice on a sunny morning but not when it's cold and wet.

Siddal Moor School, Heywood

Siddal Moor School Heywood.

A lot of money has been spent recently on this school and here we have a newly built entrance block.

All looking rather swish and modern.

Ever hopeful - Ben waiting at the door and expecting a long walk.

He's certainly got bigger over the last few months since we got him and more confident as well.

Soon to go ..

Forest Flame looking very colourful - soon to go as the lawn needs to be enlarged for the needs of Ben the dog.

It will hopefully be transplanted to another part of the garden.

We've had some cold weather of late and these tulips are no longer looking their best.

We've been busy down at the allotment but it's still a little cold to be planting out some seeds. Let's hope that the warmer weather approaches soon.

Changing times ...

Yesterday France voted in a new president - Francois Hollande a socialist.

In an election in Greece the centre-right government of Antonis Samaris (New Democracy party) together with the Pasok party gained only a third of the votes as voters changed their allegiance to non austerity parties.

Should we be worried in the UK about what is happening abroad? Well yes! The whole European economic system could be brought to disarray if new governments start to exercise some muscle.

Watch this space..


Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

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?
