Here's a pic my OH took on 7/7/2010: anyone like to suggest where it is? 

PS the date taken is not a clue but I cant believe it's more than 13 years since she took it!

Guy I used to work with used to say "Silly as a box of matches" - I never did get the sense of that

look like you've lost a pound and found a penny was the saying when I was growing up for a glum face John

Ah! I was quoting an old Bristolian saying - something old Bristolians say!

Another, said about someone a bit dipsy, "He's a sandwich short of a picnic" with a variant: "A penny short of a shilling"

Said by someone astonished, "Well, I'll go to the foot of our stairs" - the American version of that is, "Well, I'll be horn-swaggled"

If you walked into the room and left the door open my Gran would say "Put the wood in the hole"

An old Bristolian saying to someone looking a bit glum was "What's the matter with'ee, hitched thee face on a nail?"

A neighbour of mine (now deceased) used to say "Wanna see a good fight? tie 2 cats tails together and chuck em over a washing line!"

Hi Nikki,

If it's just a case of you can't find the pics you want on your computer, if you named any of the pics or the file you stored them in (and you're using a windows PC) left click on the little round 'windows' icon in the bottom left of the screen and type in anything you have named (or part of it - say Strid Bolton) and a list of anything on the hard drive with that information will pop up in the results box with a small icon to say if it's a Picture file, Word doc, etc.

That way you might be able to find the pics you think you have lost.

Hi Fairygirl, No, I didn't get to see the programme on Bodnant sadly, I've been tied up with all sorts of things and even the garden has got a bit neglected untill this week. I retired from being a master locksmith and running my own company in Feb. 2011 and now I know what everyone means after retiring from work when they say "I don't know how I found the time to go to work!"

I sowed some winter spinach earlier this month and now they are about 2" high the dreaded Vine Weevil grubs are feasting on them Grrr! (see my post on 'What's eating my winter spinach')

Have managed to clear the new greenhouse yesterday and go over it with Jeyes Fluid solution, then have started cleaning the glass before re-assembling the staging that I removed to the shed after planting out the tomatoes.

Eileen has been busy cutting back the Montana Clematis (I'm not sure what the variety is but it has very small white flowers) that had spread all over the garden wall trellis-work - we were getting soaked when walking past it after rain as the path is narrow and it had spread all over it.

Hi James, here's one I took on 16.Oct. 2011 on my old Panasonic G1. Not as atmospheric as yours though. That's the one thing the G1 could do that my new TZ40 cannot - take a range of filters; but its got me thinking, maybe I could make a filter holder that would fit on the tripod mount under the camera and sit in front of the lens.
