I am having another go at these photo challenges as no one said anything detrimental about my first one, I thought it must be ok. This challenge seems a little different, and you have to use a certain amount of creative thinking in the process. Ooh, that could be very difficult for me the. Thinking and being creative, all in one sentence.
I have been to the Art Materials Live show at the NEC, Birmingham today, courtesy of my daughter at straightstitching who purchased the tickets and took me there and back.
This is the first time I’ve done this, take part in a blog challenge, so you’ll have to excuse me if I’ve made a complete carbuncle of it.
There’s only one Crackpot isn’t there? I’m not so sure. I was listening to the radio this morning, one of those phone-in’s where the presenter says which topic he’s going to be discussing, today’s topic being ‘Funniest Nicknames for Teachers!’
In the myriad of hotels in New York City, there’s one close to Times Square, The Marriot Marquis Hotel that has at the top a rotating restaurant. Yes, not satisfied with making these buildings reach to the lower limits of the atmosphere with a view across North East America,
As I’m not getting any younger, I seem to be having trouble keeping my trousers up these days. Why this happens is quite beyond me, but I’m led to believe that apart from youthful skinheads, us men have to wear them once we hit a certain age. I treated myself to new trousers and jeans only a couple of months ago
Latin! I never was academically gifted and never spent a great deal of time at school, well, I didn’t if I could help it. Once I became an Adolescent, that was it for me, I realised there was far more interesting things going on in the world than listening to the drones of a well intentioned maths teacher
One thing about retirement I’m looking forward to is the ability to go out for the day. We did it earlier in the year as a trial run if you like, and went to Bristol. I say a day, but in truth we decided to stay the night at The Bristol Hotel which is situated on the quayside. It was a lovely, end of summer day with plenty of sunshine (at least to start with). After parking up and sorting out the room, me and Dolly Clackett, otherwise known as the wife, went for something to eat at one of the many river side bars.
I live in a city, the UK’s second city, Birmingham. It’s an urban sprawl spread over a vast area. There are canals, parks and areas of historical importance such as the world renowned Jewellery Quarter’. The parks are mainly small areas apart from Canon Hill and Pype Hayes.
I have always loved music, all sorts of music. From Beethoven to Beatles and a lot in between. My earliest memory of a song was hearing Buddy Holly on the radio singing ‘Raining In My Heart’ when I was about 3 or 4 years old. I grew up in an age when probably the best popular music ever was created. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash, The Kinks and of course, Tom Jones.
