Big Moon

Well, Cathy has been going about this all week, so out with the camera ready to see this HUGE moon … doesn’t seem that much bigger than normal to me, but here are the photos anyway: Hope you like them, I have just uploaded them all, so some be worse than others, will sort them…

We had Simply Mo and Celtic-Con-Fusion singing all night and a few guest singers…

Adding More Links

Time for a little housekeeping and a review of the links on The Beach today, deleted a few and added some nice shiny new ones. The property market is, so they say, now starting to improve and if you are looking to buy or sell you might want to take a look at what Janet…
