Oil on canvas - painting for the boys
Autobahn virginity lost
My first trip on the autobahn last weekend – legal speeding – was excellent.
But two lanes and heavy traffic meant I couldn’t reach the magic 170mph of the (borrowed) 911 I was driving. Whilst I was disappointed, my dad (whose car it was) was delighted... He lost his nerve after I had to brake from 134mph to 60mph in less than 120 feet when a lorry pulled out of the slow lane in front of us.
Must get back there and hit the big 1-7-0 before my carbon guilt kicks in.
Sunflowers - for sale for one million pounds
Returning with a bucket of Pollock and Mackerel
You just can't beat getting away from the crowds and fishing off West Bay harbour on a hot and sunny Easter weekend. You could have mistaken the venue for St.Tropez as the rich and famous descended in their luxury yachts.
It was only the bright red English tans that gave the game away.

Norfolk is full of them.
In the Jelly Belly world we've made it big. We even have an embarassing forced band-style photo on there.

From a cave in Cornwall
Jim sent this in from his Hols. Think its Wills head looking like the sun?
Internet to the rescue
100,000 West Country folk were denied a chance to see England's thrilling victory over Ecuador on Sunday, due to evil vandals slicing through Telewest cables.
Thankfully for the Lavis family the BBC have been streaming all games on their website, so we didn't miss a single kick....Mind you, watching the match in a Windows Media Player Popup window is not the best entertainment, so sadly we retired to the pub for the second half
God bless the internet (and pubs) !
Yucca mum goes gold at Gardeners World Live show
Anthea Guthrie, landscape gardener & mum of Arwyn, bags a gold medal at this year's Gardeners World Live show, held at the Birmingham NEC. She also picked up the Most Creative Garden award... competing gardeners were later spotted crying in their beer.
Called the Mayflower Garden, the theme is the famous transatlantic voyage of the Mayflower 'twixt Blightyland and America all those years ago.
The various flora on display were kept in context, featuring olde world tobacco, herbs & medications etc. All this was cenetered around a recreation of the deck of the Mayflower itself!
So anyone who wants a replica boat built in their garden, give us a shout & we'll pass it on.
