"That's Amore" by Dean Martin

Just back from a fab holiday in our Boxster travelling to the Italian Lakes. 3,200 miles return trip. Weather was changeable so some of the excursions on the road passes over the Alps had to be cancelled. Maybe next year?? The car ran all the way and back without missing a beat.

Link here to go to my Boxster BLOG. for many more photos and information.

"There's a Place" The Beatles

When cycling from Edzell to Aboyne in the North East of Scotland I came across this hamlet called Finzean. Well, how would you pronounce it? Is it as in Finzeen or Fintseen or maybe Finyeen. No, it is pronounced as FING-IN, as in sing-in. Here is an explanation of how the area got its name and pronunciation.

I have had Pictures in My Head but no time to post them here until now.

So .... > Here is some of what I have been up to in recent months.
