The paralympics London

I really enjoyed watching the opening of the paralympics on Channel 4 last night. The fireworks, which we could hear, were even louder than what we heard when the main Olympics opened.

From BBC

I was annoyed with Mr  Cameron though, as he said about disabled people concentrating on what they can do and not what they can't. Good, but he means let's take most of them off benefits.

They said all the athletes had physios and trainers, loads of people to help them, lucky them - I don't have a physio.

I am proud of all those athletes who have disabilities like myself but have achieved so much with all their hard work, but perhaps Mr Cameron should think about the disabled and sick, the disabled and old and the disabled and poor. Where is the help for the rest of us?

Going to pay my respects

It was my birthday last week so on the day I decided to pay my respects to my friend. The stonemasons told my friend's wife they will have to wait for 6 months before they can put up a headstone because they need it all to settle.

It was not really a very nice day but when we got to the grave the sun came out and it was hot. The fields are right beside his grave and the view is right down to Reculver. A marsh Harrier flew across the field but I wasn't able to capture it.

Georgie trying to get comfortable

 I took this night, Georgie often lays on his back, he tosses and turns all the time and doesn't stay still for very long. I couldn't get to my new good camera so I had to use the one on the table which doesn't do such clear photos

Some flowers in our garden.

Trying to get more used to my new camera. These are flowers in our garden taken a few days ago.

I bought this CD a few months ago

I like this goup's music and enjoyed watching them on the Olympic closing ceremony
