A diverse offering twixt the interesting, the unusual, and the amusing.

I seem to have been reading a lot about Stonehenge recently, both in blog form and in books. So just to add to the current wave of interest, here are 2 small sketchbook watercolours that I did on my last visit.
To the person (you know who you are) who recently proclaimed that 'Stonehenge is 137 km south of London', I'm sorry to disappoint, but that's called FRANCE. The word that escaped you was 'west'.
I shall not pontificate about the significant history of Stonehenge; the net is full of it, and does a much better job than I could ever do.

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 50 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
