Frankfurt is a curious place


The first thing that seems unusual was the postbox inviting love letters only. What kind of people live here? The second thing was the selection of items for sale at the airport. Now to give context the area where the items were for sale were only for flights to either Moscow or London. The massive selection of flip flops was an interesting item for sale with no evidence of any takers. The food selection was just wrong. Finally, why would anyone, in Frankfurt or anywhere else for that matter buy these snow domes? Surely no-one hates someone enough to buy them one or even two?

A Day in Wimbledon


Just a day out really but things that catch your attention.

  1. Empty trains at midday. Why cannot train companies like Southwest Trains look at operating far more a supply and demand service? It is crazy to have completely empty carriages.
  2. The weather in UK can vary from blazing sunshine to rain in only a few minutes. I Phone weather forecasts sadly are the worst source of information. Just open your eyes and look.
  3. How nice to take time and relax and sit peacefully and drink a coffee watching the world go by. No computer and no work
  4. Very little evidence of adult adhd

Dragonfly


This guy just flew in and smiled at my macro lens. I smiled back. Surely the guy is just posing? I mean the folded arms?

My Best Photograph of all time? The Dragonfly


This Dragonfly just flew into the house and kind of smiled at my macro lens. He reminds me of a real life Minion.

Redcurrants are still illegal in some USA states. Why and is this reasonable?


Originally posted on evenmoreseniorbushe:

The redcurrant (or red currant), Ribes rubrum, is a member of the genus Ribes in the gooseberry family , native to parts of western Europe (Belgium, Great Britain ,France, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, northern Italy, northern Spain, Portugal and Poland). They tend to grow best in coll regions with abundant moisture. More importantly right now they grow in my surrey garden. A single plant (like mine) can produce up to 2.5kg. What however many are not aware of, including myself till recently, is that redcurrants are prohibited in many USA states. For example they cannot be shipped to North Carolina, New Hampshire, West Virginia. Other states like Delaware and Massachusetts insist on a permit. Some states prohibit them in certain counties/areas, for example Maine and  New Jersey. The federal government had banned the growing of black and red currants in 1911 when the burgeoning logging industry put pressure on lawmakers to eliminate…

Waffle Jacks In Merton/Wimbledon


Originally posted on evenmoreseniorbushe:

Waffles are becoming far more of a British thing. I recently visited a restuarant in Durham where the choice was wide between sweet and savoury, the only thing being, one is always enough, if not too much. Recently I saw that this restaurant had opened only doors away from a bakery i often frequent. Today was the day to visit. Very impressed. Nice small menu. Waffles, Bagels and Burgers mostly. All looking good. The place is laid out like an American Diner. Music from the 50s plays nicely in the background. The waffles were superb. I can only comment on the Banana, Maple Syrup and toffee sauce waffle, and a nibble of the Peanut butter and Maple Syrup one. Nice touch is that you can order whole waffles, halves or even quarters.

Their website is at

A cute touch also .Free WI-Fi as well as USB ports for mobile…
