The Past

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

Manchester SNOWDROP City

A symbol of hope and peace the Snowdrop was planted on the graves of soldiers killed in World War I
To mark the centenary of the war the National Trust planted 100,000 snowdrops around Manchester in 2014.
Today they are now blooming.
These were planted in and around the Manchester Art Gallery and are gathering quite a few sightseers.

First I've heard about these will have to look out for them.

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?
