Thursday, April 2, 2015

Hello friends! I'm afraid it's been pretty silent around here for the last twelve months and the reason for that is that my computer died last June.  I have posted the odd thing here and there using Mr B's iPad, but it's not a device I like using for this sort of thing.  Mostly I have been accumulating loads of pictures on my camera in the hope that when I took my laptop back to California (some eight months later), something could be done.  My dad it must be said, encouraged me in this false hope and after all CA is the home of the Apple, so I guess it didn't seem too unreasonable that they might succeed where their Irish counterparts had failed.  Reader, I have to tell you now that no such recovery was possible and that consequently my computer and all that was on it is now lost to the ages.  

Okay, so that sucks, but now it means I can stop waiting to upload my photos.  Without further ado, here are some of the highlights of the last eight months:

Central Park NYC

giant prawns in Brighton

Belfast Castle


"a face like a slapped arse" I believe is the expression they use

new haircut (not so new now)

we DJ-ed a Halloween "Carrie" themed prom.  I trust you have all seen my costume by now, if not it is in one of my earlier posts

just a few of the fun things on display at the Mr Finch show at Anthropologie, Kings Road

the capitol building, Sacramento CA

Bravo Farms, Kettleman City
(no actual gators were present)
