I have a sore chest from my shingles even though the rash is on my side. I know it can't really be sore but it really does feel like the skin has been scraped.

Our cat likes to climb up onto me, sitting in the crook of my arm, sort of laying on my chest. I brace myself and let him do it and it made me think of this.

The best thing about that song is that it could apply to just about any city in the UK or Ireland even if it was written about Salford.

I forget who it was but when I posted pictures of my drive through BC on Hwy 3, someone commented on Greenwood, saying they got nostalgic when they passed through, to see a place with a slag heap in the middle of town.

Well done zoe that is great news i am very pleased for you ,the postage at the mo is all over the show .It would be be nice to see some of your paintings.If i remember quite a few years ago i bought an original oil painting in altea and now it hangs in my bedroom in the jalon valley in spain and it brings back many memories.Paintings are so personal don't you think.Well done again, P,S did you know vincent van gogh only sold one painting in his lifetime!!!
