River Tavy in Spate - Flood water at Christmas 2013

The River Tavy - the second fastest river in England - has been in spate of flood and has been mesmerising to watch.  The storm wasn't yet over when I took this video (on iPhone), so everyone wondered just how high it would go....

Tavistock at Night at Christmas (in the Rain)

Snapped a couple of shots whilst on taxi duty last night (teenage kids), of Tavistock looking Christmassy in the rain.  ("Christmassy" is a proper adjective don't you know, I checked..)
Raining in Tavi, now there's a surprise!

Sunrise at Coryton, Tavistock this morning

Beautiful sunrise this morning, had to share it.




This is the view from our window this morning.  Not bad as views go I suppose.

Nelson Mandela has died

Sad news that one of the world's greatest leaders ever to have lived has shaken off his mortal coil.

He is free from death now.  What an incredible individual.  I remember seeing him 'walk to freedom' on his release from prison thinking, "this really is history before my eyes".

Just glad that my kids know who he is and have been alive when he was alive.

Price of a Pallet These Days ...

Meandering around B&Q and saw this.

Ooh ooh, don't tell me what it is, let me guess ....

A Tate Modern piece worth £70,000?  


No?  Ok, I knew that....


Let's have a closer look.



Nope.  That's no help.

Jeez, the price of pallets these days.
