I've just got a new computer and my old modem isn't compatible with Windows Vista. So I may be off line for a couple of days. When I come back I will visit all my new friends, as well as all of my old ones. In the meantime, thank you all for your lovely comments on my bridges, what's the next challenge?

This is Beggar's Bridge near Glaisdale in North Yorkshire, it was built in 1619, if you wish to know more about it's history go here http://www.billspics.cambsnet.co.uk/beggars_bridge.htm

I drove under this yesterday as I often do, and I frequently drive over it, as do lots of other people. I remember it being built, and I also remember the ferries that used to get us from one side to the other. I now take it for granted, as I suspect most people who live in the area do, which is a shame. It may no longer be the world's biggest single span suspension bridge, but it's still pretty awesome. Oh and by the way, a friend of Quilly's has a post a picture of a bridge thing going, so if you're interested or intrigued, go to http://iwasborn2cree8.blogspot.com/2008/08/new-photo-challenge.html

We went to the inaugral Vista festival yesterday, or Prinny Ave street fest to the less posh of you. It was a pleasant experience without being over exciting, lots of free balloons for the kids, and fortunately sunshine too, well it was when we were there. We had a very nice meal and drink in the garden area of The Lounge and the kids got face painted (see below). But the highlight was surely winning a KCFM mouse mat for identifying the intro to Rubber Bullets by 10cc. I also recognised Sugar Baby Love by the Rubettes, but wasn't owning up to that one. The only down point of the day was forgetting my camera so I couldn't record the event for posterity.

In answer to Quilly's question, I haven't been anywhere, well no where out of the ordinary anyway, I guess I just ran out of things to say and photo's to post. I also have a small confession to make, I have been seeing someone else, the brazen hussy that is known as Facebook. I have to be honest with you, I am still seeing Facebook, but the attraction is wearing off and I am slowly being attracted back to blogger. Those of you who have been true to blogger, I do not deserve you, but I'm glad you're still around, I guess you'll all just have to get used to the fact that I'm a two-timing no good cheating tart, but enough of my good points.......
