A very well composed shot, lovely! Is that some kind of machinery hidden under the ivy?

I think it was some kind of cog Paula, we were half way up the lane to Howgill Lodge when I noticed it. The soft sunlight made it look interesting, it could have been a little sharper though. Cheers, Anita

All in all it's just a cog on a wall, I feel a song coming on:) Anita

I think it is one of those old cast-iron wheels from a grass cutter, or a machine gun mount from WWII(not)

Now, that song will be in my head all night long.

Well seen Anita

Warm wishes

Hi Jim, Yes its one of those songs that get on your nerves, get on your nerves. chuckle:) Anita

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on July 10, 2008

Ah yes Anita. I have one for you.. Its called WAR of the WORLD and it goes

Drrrmmm--drum--derumm--drum--drum --drum----and so on. Hope you like it and pleasant dreams. (-j^)

I haven't heard this one Jim but I can see it's potential for being irritating:) Anita

War of the Worlds, written by H.G. Wells is a classis Sci Fi story and was given the Musical treatment about 30 years ago.

Perhaps you might remember those immortal words, so eloquently spoken with that huanting, foreboding voice, by the late great Richard Burton

""No one would have believed. In the last years of the 19th century, that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space"

The music that followed that opening chapter was written and composed by Justin Haywood. I know that you would recognise this masterpiece of 20th century Orchestral Rock. Then the music would be in your head ALL DAY. The opening theme runs all the way through the musical in various forms.

Other performers included Julie Covington, David Essex (gawd, you must remember him Anita, he was every young girls' fantasy) Phil Lynot, Jo Partridge and Chris Thompson.

Now I have I jogged your memory bank.

Thanks Jim you've managed the get the old grey matter working. How true are those words of today, it's a little disturbing isn't it Jim? I was never a fan of David Essex he was a bit cheesy for me. Anyway Jim, my memory is well and truly jogged:) Cheers, Anita
