If Sean Connery was to comment on the photo of the river with the ice, he would say Shimply Shtunning! Couldn't say it better myself! :o)

Beyond the disciplines of Greenlandic rolling, falling off big hard climbs, chopping logs & strangling chickens, A'm no good for much Douglas. I am not a doctor saving lives nor a scientist creating the next great cure, so when people like my photography, & take a moment to comment, it's a total bonus. Something extra I can say I can do with some degree of competence.


Thank you Shir. I she my shots sheem to have improved your shmile. :o)

Si, we all contribute to society in the way we do best. We both teach. I like teaching. I love it when I learn from my students!

Aye...right enough. It's great to be able to teach all manor of survival & Greenlandic rolling to all age groups & abilities from retired RMs to wee girls to Postmen.
I always thought I carried a degree of competent wordsmithery into my communications, be it writing or speech, so it came as a suprise the other month, that in BSL I couldn't sign The Cat Sat On The Mat coherently. This has since been rectified & I am currently under instruction from an 8 year old, who, in turn, is under instruction from me. :o)

So I concur Douglas, without learning or a will to learn, & share knowledge, we are dead animals, becalmed & abhorrent creatures - perpetually ibid - synco. I guess that burn inside, to fix or deflect, resist or yield, stand in the storm for others, take shelter or run for shelter myself, or take it all on will rarely find sleep... In time I'm sure we all do it right, even if sometimes...
