Wow, William, I had no idea from the thumbnail of the view! Fantastic! Darn it, I was about to have a good look at these, but I have to go already as I'm behind - some kids at school are covered in nits and they keep giving a few to my offspring, and every night, I'm doing 4 nit checks to make sure there are no more. Driving me up the wallllll, very slowly!

Anyway, that's why I have to go when I was just going to have a nice half an hour! :)

Very best wishes to you, and hope to get back soon. Have you been having any trouble being connected to Panoramio at all? I often get a message saying that the connection has been aborted, and there's no problem with my network. Just wondered,'s a pain also!

Catch you soon, William, Sue

Hi Sue, sorry i never replied to your question about panoramio - I hope that you;ve got it working again! Have a look at my new pics from Chile and see what you think. Cheers, William

That's OK, William, I changed browsers to Google Chrome and have had no further problems. I was just over here yesterday, wondering how much longer you were going to be away for, but could tell by the stone age conversations that you definitely hadn't been around, and here you are again!

I shall have a look at your Chile pics very soon, I would love to have a look now, but am so behind and have to alter 3 skirts, including taking the hems up about 6 inches in two cases, ready for a Christmas concert thingie tomorrow, so I'd better get cracking on that, or the kids will be tripping up when doing their steps. Among other things, they're doing that old song...'Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye'..for an old lady who's celebrating her birthday on this particular day, and I can just imagine them singing that, tripping and disappearing out of sight....tee hee, how the imagination makes my insides quiver with mirth. I have a terrible sense of humour!

Did't mean to waffle on so, on your beautiful photo, William, but you know me by now.. :D

Very best wishes to you again,

catch you soon, I promise, once the pre Christmas rush has died down a bit, at the very latest..

I was wondering, just looking at this fantastic scene again, whether the stone slabs laid down to the left of the nearest standing stone have been there a long time, or have they been put there by the National Trust or similar to save wear on the turf? The beautiful golden light has made them have such a wonderful texture, almost as though they are made of wet clay, and would have in imprint left on them if you were to tread on their smooth surfaces. Fascinating!

Cheers William,

Hi Sue, I hope that the Christmas concert goes well! You are right that the stones in the grass are there to protect against erosion by walkers on the Cleveland Way. The large stone is a memorial to someone who spent a lot of time working up to get better access or something like that. My sister-in-law's village is the one just visible between the two stones - hence the shot.

Catch you soon
