People have too much time on their hands because of the pandemic lock down. This week, I have been notified of several significant days. We have just passed 100 Days in Lock Down. Who counted? We are nearer NEXT Christmas than last Christmas. Can I put the tree up? My wife has a birthday coming … More Significant Days – Look, See, Pray
I’ll let you into a “secret” – the ending is even better than you can imagine. Read on, if you dare. … More The Road goes ever on- Look, See, Pray

Is she content, or wishing she had some mayonnaise to make supper more palatable? You decide. … More Simplicity – Look, See, Pray
The photographs were taken at Vancouver Aquarium, where strange shapes move in even stranger ways. Jellyfish- what oddities of creation! Tanks full of them in different colours, semi-transparent, fascinating and scary. Some are very dangerous with a venomous sting that can cripple or kill. Sounds like a virus! … More Strange and scary – Look, See, Pray
Most of us probably have less heady ambitions. We won’t win “Best of Show” or Gold Medals at Chelsea. But if you put enough tough little poppies in place, we really will make an impact. Maybe I’ll settle for being a poppy… Lord, if you give me some poppies I’ll turn a wasteland orange… … More Californian Poppies- Look, See, Pray
