Dunluce Castle as seen from the Wild Goose

I took this picture of Dunluce Castle (Northern Ireland) from the Wild Goose, 2009. This is the castle pictured on Led Zeppelin‘s “Houses Of The Holy”. The Wild Goose is a small yacht which was the first vessel to navigate the entire coast of Russia. The tale of how it now belongs to my sister and brother-in-law is rather interesting in itself! Perhaps I’ll tell it in another photo – watch this space…

Derry/Londonderry, 2009. A statue symbolizing peace.

Another of my photos from Derry/Londonderry, 2009. A statue symbolizing peace. Sadly, a firebomb planted by the IRA went of at a hotel in that very city on Friday, but thanks to a swift midnight evacuation, no one was hurt. #peace

Gorgonzola and Vegemite. What? It was great

Gorgonzola and Vegemite. What? It was great!

Like many people, I detested it for many years – until I made the mistake of tasting it. Now my family despise me when they see me eating it and I’ve almost given up saying “You’ll love it!” I followed the instructions of friends to have it on thickly buttered toast – but only a tiny amount of Vegemite. It really does enhance the flavours of other things.

Finally found the huntsman spider that died in my studio a couple of years ago.

Finally found the huntsman that died in my studio a couple of years ago. Like most spiders, they shrink considerably almost immediately on expiration.

“Do you know this donkey?”

“Do you know this donkey? It was found wandering loose on the Derryall Rd, near The Birches.” – The Portadown Times. (I like to keep up with the news from my hometown in Northern Ireland.)
