Beautiful daughter, lucky hubby, wonderful photography !!

WELCOME !!

hugs & Shmishes



awhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

That's sweet of you to say. Hug right back!  ;D

Pssssst he's referring to a link to one of my websites that's visible from my stats.

Daughter has grown up a lot since that pic and is now 9 - time soooo flies  :-\
and I do miss my desert days, my wild roaming and diving days **********sigh*********
though I also love being in London
except for the dratted weather !!!!

But then it's all really in one's head and I'm not letting the blues get the better of me. Besides, now it's autumn and if just the sun would peak through I could go and take some more spectacular photos.
Weatherforecast has it raining all the coming week
I ain't believing them!!!!

 ;D
Happy Monday everyone!

Environmental issues mostly - that and bedouin culture in conjunction with the medicinal properties of the plants.
First a hobby, then it got a bit out of hand and I wrote a book about it.

YAY!!! What happened to my n00b status?!?!?!!?

I'm not a n00b anymore?!?!?!?

I don't wanna grow up!!!  [:-'(] [:-'(] [:-'(]

Those are some pretty good reasons to become so informed about them. That is cool.

Well on your way to the top, of what I am not sure yet~! LOL good luck JR.

Well on your way to the top, of what I am not sure yet~!

Up is usually better than down, though I do like down also.

I think the uppest I've been is 4700something meters (almost the top of Mont Blanc in France)
and the lowest was -103m diving in the Red Sea
(when I still thought to be a lesser God that could go beyond certain limits; I was simply lucky!).



Lousy weather today! Even bunny next to me is sleeping all day

Yes - we've got a loop ear bun, did I mention that?

She squeeks and snores in  her sleep sometimes - hillarious!  ;D

... yeah, it's pouring all day and I got already doused twice by cars  [:(!]

Which means our bat walk tonight is probably going to be, well, an interesting case study in case we see bats ------------------ next time LOL



***** and in other news *******

<<A vulture with an 8ft wingspan has escaped from a Scottish rescue centre.......  linky if you don't believe me

Owner explains: "Wee Man could go for about a week without food. He would not have a clue what to do. He's not an attacking bird."


.............. hide your cows I says.....  ;D ;D

Do you like to travel?

Sounds like it might be a good book! You should pm the title to me. Those things interest me greatly!

Hide your bunny, too.

Since I have been giving you a little rubbish in the Geology part of the board I will fall on my knees, kiss your feet, and offer my sword to m'Lady. I am the resident lecherous old man of ill repute around here. - ask some of the other women. I do be a geologer, and an oil and gas geologer at that, with nothing to interst me but rocks and women and at my age all I do is drool.

I am a grumpy old man,I have a nasty disposition and I like hurting little bugs - cockroaches, to be exact. But then that isn't a big deal were we have more roaches than any other thing where I live. (Did you know that if you tape a large cockroach to the middle of turn-table thingy in a Microwave, put it on "high" for about 10 minutes _NOTHING HAPPENS!!! These things are indistructable!

But I digress. Welcome tot he forum, mam, may your stay be as beautiful as your soul seems to be.

i don't really feel bad for the bug... if we had roaches here i'd probably freak out. to get them here you have to live somewhere really really really gross and dirty.
