Out of action

Am unable to blog at the moment because of problems here with phone lines. My so called "broadband" connection is such in name only!!!!

I've been told it's because it is cloudy......hmmmmm, so I guess until it gets sunny I'll be out of action.

Have a great Christmas and see you when the weather breaks!!!!

...behind the green door

Don't know what they're doin'
But they laugh a lot behind the green door
Wish they'd let me in

So I could find out what's behind the green doo

Jim Lowe

This green door in London, seems to have melting steps leading to it.

It is unusual for us East-Coasters to see the sun set over the ocean.....

but here in Cinque Terre it is a daily occurrence that hardly raises an Italian eyebrow!!!

Paris Doorway

To awaken in Paris with the day all yours,
to get lost in her,
drink her wine,
and eat her bread
is my idea of
Heaven on Earth.

Scene from Casanova

On that picture-perfect day they were shooting the movie Casanova in the Square. So we stood in a puddle for an hour or so and star-spotted.

As an expert on film-making now, I can tell you there seems to be a lot of standing around doing nothing!!

Heath Ledger was there and with hind-sight I wish I could have yelled out a warning to him.

Such a waste of a fine young actor!
