Most of these money making schemes don`t have any place in my life as I just take it as black humour.

Although this one is free it still isn`t worth downloading. According to the write up beneath, you have to move 3 balls. I wonder if that has anything to do with `the Spear`.

This can still be found on the net.

This book has some of Zapiro`s cartoons but nothing we don`t already know.

Another book that just seems redundant as every one knows where the money went.

A bit of toilet humour to liven things up.

I`m seriously thinking of doing this with some of the drivers on the road now.

If you get that feeling that you want to shoot someone, get one of these.

Last night i was at the lookout when the sun started to go down. you can see the Robberg peninsular on the right.

This lookout is at the end of my road and hosts the New Year celebrations because the fireworks are set of on the beach bellow. It`s about a 3 km walk along the beach and is best done during the winter as there is no where to get out of the sun.

Whilst in the UK I went to Chatham and it was street carnival day, there were quite a lot of wardens walking around. They had practically the same powers as the police and it was a very orderly affair. I had to walk to the old end of town to look in Maplins for a `bug zapper` as I had the last one in Maidstone. The first thing to see on the way from the bus station was a set of cannons which seemed a great plaything for the kids.

Then cam a side show which looked like the Aliens had just landed in a UFO.

Going up the High Street there was a guy showing what you can do with a computer/ printer combination fitted to a an electric gocart.

Further along was found a fruit shop where some delicious fruit was bought for lunch.

Going further into the older part of town I cam to a little pub but decided that I would give it a miss.

Two shops further on the shops had some strange names but when looking inside I thought I would wait for somewhere else to eat.

This is the walkway over the roads that I had to cross to get to Maplins in the old part of town which had more pawn shops and eating places from all over the world than the rest of town. This walkway was so constructed to be wheelchair friendly, but i`m not sure as I found it quite an exerting walk. Coming back it was easier to cross the roads on foot and quicker.

On retracing my steps after not getting what I wanted at Maplins I decided to have a beer and pub lunch at the `Prince of Wales.

I then went back to the bus station for my bus back to Maidstone.

It was put on this site 12 moths ago, so it`s what I call a lazy blog 🙂

I have still put the sunrise photos on the blog as I still get requests. At the end I have put 5 separate photos.

Below are the 5 shots that were taken the same morning over a half hour period.

This is why they make good photos, everyday they change, even on the same day.

Have you ever looked at how your blog has varied over the years that you have been using it? out of curiosity I looked at mine and found that it had a 5 year high and is now in decline. WordPress seems to be the only one that you can check. My time on iblog before it was cancelled reached 2million but has now been set back to zero. I don`t use it much now as I can only reach it on other peoples computers or it gives me a `forbidden` reply, page 404. years I am

There are many people now who consider blogs as jokes and the only thing in their life seems to be Facebook, twitter and all their variations. Although I have seen quite a few younger people writing blogs, the only problem has been commenting on their blogs because they want them sent to Facebook. When Facebook first started I started a page but don`t use it anymore as it takes too much of my time and dongle megabytes. Twitter and the other social sites seem to me that they are for people that use smart phones to text as they seem restricted by volume. I know that some blogs, mine included, seem to rehash the same subjects over and over. I do it just for fun and have quite a restricted area in which to photograph.

it doesn`t take long for the sunrise to change as these were only minutes apart.

There are quite a few people t5hat email and ask to see things that they are unable to see as they are land bound. This is the reason for the sea life.

Orca teaching the calf to breach in the bay. These are not seen very often so close to the beach, maybe once a year.

This year the boats have had to go further out to sea to get shots of the different Whales.

i still like this one as it reminds me of the one below:—

I have never tried to feel the whales nose but the pig had a very soft nose which I found remarkable as they can dig quite hard ground with that nose.

Even though the whales are not in the bay now we still have a lot of dolphins.

I think with all the bad news lately I think so humour is needed. I love putting jokes on my blog as it is quite uplifting reading through them.

I must start to look for some more jokes as some of these have been used before 😉 I haven`t written much today due to unforeseeable circumstances which I hinted about earlier.

This morning was great for the washing as we have a nice warm Berg Wind. Most counties have a variation of this warm wind that blows softly for most of the day. We usually get a good rain within a few days but in the mean time there is a lot of watering to do in the garden. We had another demonstration out side the police station this morning, complete with band. This was because there have been a lot of child rapes and murder in Blue Horizons. Most of the people were from that area and they don`t have a police station there. Kwanakatula is the closest one but I think they fall under Plettenberg Bay.

I did manage a few photos of the sunrise this morning whilst having my morning coffee.

First a long shot that has been trimmed a bit.

This was taken with the 4x telephoto on my cell phone. Although this one is only 10mp it`s much better than my old one which was 2 mp. The only problem is getting a sharp image like with a DSLR camera. Maybe because it`s difficult to fit on a tripod 🙂

today hasn`t been very spectacular but i did get photos on my cell phone of the morning sunrise and tonight’s sunset. This is a very short blog, but what can I say about it 🙂

Still cloudy but still no rain, so was lucky and got some gardening done.
