 OMG.....Aliona has tweeted to say that she will no longer taking part in 'Strictly' (apart from the tour)  ......that's my Christmas down the pan!

Frank your input is always well reasoned and I do understand what you say. However, perhaps you could explain to the little-uns, that it isn't especially a dance competition as such, just a dance based entertainment show.......witness the extended stay of John Sergeant & Ann Widdecombe.

Awww......shame to take away from the past weeks of enjoyment provided by Jay & Aliona. It's happened before and I suppose it will happen again.......there was little difference between the final three, so it came down to personal choice.

Obs & Frank, the GBP is never going to vote purely on dancing technique alone. I agree, Jay & Aliona's show dance was a little lack lustre, although Aliona did accept the blame on the night.

I would just say that I thought that Katie was occupying the place deserved by Helen.

That looks quite beautiful just as it is, Fairygirl.

Re action pics of ponies, you probably have an little button on top of your camera that looks smething like 3 tiny cameras, one on top of the ot the other This is for continuous you can choose the nuber of frames per second your camera takes, with .or with or without tracking.

When you've mastered this, you'll be able to take some great action shots.......perhaps we'll go further into it sometime.

 In that case you may be interested in this shot I took of this gorgeous little girl at our village show.

I should explain, it was a scorching hot day (you may well notice the pony looks stressed) and this little mite was whispering words of comfort in his/her ear.  

Apols if you've seen it before.....I just thought it was apt.

PS David forgot to mention the leg of lamb filling the house with lovely aroma's covered with my own fresh herbs, a nice slow roast that gives me time to Burble on here and get over the worst dancer winning.


Sounds delish, of my favs with rosemary. Fry-up here, one of the perks of being single.

Re Katie.....apart from a dash of elegances, I saw nothing beyond false smiles & exaggerated facial expressions.

There we go! Absolutely beautiful.    What I always wanted when I started this thread i.e. for peeps to get to know their cameras better & improve their skills.
