Week 12: mostly London

Filed under: — Administrator @ 07:34

The week started with a rainy Sunday. Then on Monday and Tuesday I made a short visit to London, which provided most of the week’s pictures. There is also a proper gallery here, but look here first.

It began to rain lightly, so we sought refuge in Chandos Pub near Trafalgar Square, a favourite watering hole of mine. At the neighbouring table, a guy was demonstrating an old film Leica to his friends:

  1. I especially like the Leica sequel ….

    What I detest about MS windows & MS Internet Explorer … this is written on my g/f laptop in my usual wakeful midnight period as I read the OM digest; and without being asked it completed all three response windows above. I use Opera on my own desktop machine! Much more civilised behaviour and I am in control.

    The house shift continues. We have complete occupancy on the 12 April. Brian
