  3. Is the boat carrying too much load at the back? LOL

    I grew up in Borneo, and boats were a necessity.

    Re: Maths , they should organise a "Masters " Math contest. But I won't even want to volunteer. My Math was just hopeless. and I can't cope in times of excitement. I got LBL. Do you know what it is?

    It is advertised by TENA, so even my son knows LBL. He asked," Mum, what is LBL?" I reply, its when you are in the bath room, and I tell you to get out immediately. Then I blame it on my 4 pregnancies.

  10. They look like they are trailing a scent. Someone could be in trouble if they catch up. Happy Wednesday.

  11. B J ...trailing a 'scent' or they got a call from someone in distress ---an SOS. There are a lot of those kinds of calls around the Gulf areas.

  12. I did stop by yesterday, but was rushed and didn't comment. Thanks for adding me - glad to be aboard!

    Also, on the over 50 page, there are a few links that no longer exist and a LOT of people that haven't posted in months or years. It was pretty discouraging to do all that clicking to hopefully start following others, and all for pretty much naught.

  14. Anne Marie Ya, it is disheartening that some don't blog much. And with over 200 bloggers on the blogroll it's way too time consuming to keep track of them all.

  25. Great shot, Anni, I can just hear the sound of that powerful motor shooting a 'rooster tail' off the stern!! Wouldn't want to be the object of their interest LOL!

  26. Dear Anni,
    Thanks so much for visiting me and commenting so generously on my 'close-up' photos! You asked what photo setting I had found...well, I have a dial on top that I set to 'scene', and then chose 'close-up'; there was no mention of macro there or in the sparse handbook with the camera. There is a 'sharpen it up' button with a little flower, which I think I've heard others say is the 'macro' and I've used it alot, but never got the awesome photos as with the new setting. My camera is a simple Digi, with no SLR, so I'm thrilled I can play with this function!!
    Thanks again!
