Ta Paul - got the requisite permit, but was woken by a thunderstorm at 4:00 am . .

Tonight is a late night because of the Eurovision - I just love the utter daftness of the whole thing, although the recent semi final thinning out is stopping some of the most enjoyable silliness getting through. I suppose that's progress.

Oh no - eurovision - I`d forgotten. Blue are deemed to have a chance because they have fans in Europe - if they still had any here we might have a chance of getting more than nul points!

Anyway been absent too long on here so thought I`d enter the weekend comp with a shot from Haworth 1940`s weekend. As this group seemed intent on blocking the middle of the small cobbled road I thought I`d make them my subject - missed Winston Churchill`s speech cos of them  ;)

Great event if anyone is ever in the area - held annuallly on Sat and Sun.

How annoying that nearly everywhere you go in the countryside the landscape is dominated by wind turbines.  :( If they put any more up in Scotland I'm sure it will take off and become an island. ( maybe that's the reason )  :2funny:
BOOZE!!! Helping ugly people have sex.

I don't think they're that much of a blot on the landscape. To be honest I'd rather have a wind turbine near, than an electricity pylon, now they are blots.

It's not just there presents but the noise they make, which distrubes the wildlife.  >:(

Ah OK got you. Not really noticed the noise to be honest. I live by 2 or 3 wind farms, pass them regularly, but don't actually stop by them. Maybe next time when I'm out and have some time I might.

This week the Swifts arrived back but the weather has been cloudy and dull. So I include what would have been a stunning shot if the sun had been shining.  :(

Dull days:
