Crooked Clock

Last Saturday we were in the  Bruce Hutchison Branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library.  That is the one that is in the building with the Commonwealth Pool.

That is where I spotted this clock on the wall.  I had to look twice because it took me by surprise.  I knew it was a great shot for my blog.  So while i took the pic , one of the ladies working there said "oh you like our clock".   To which I replied "Yes whats the origin of it"
Well it seems that it was bought at Urban Barn. And its called 
Fashionably Late.  I searched Urban Barn website but could not find it so I'm sorry I cant tell you the price.  If you know send me a comment below on this post.

So I guess you get to pic which line on the second hand you get to read.  the longest is the exact time and the shorter part is well fashionably late.

found site abbey rd

Well you get two posts today.  On browsing the web today I found this site that shows the just before pictures of the famous Abbey Road.  You know the one on the Beatles album cover.

Now check out this site to see the ones taken just before this famous picture was taken.  Amazing how just the right one looks so much better than others.  But I do like the on that is of them waiting to cross and a older lady is talking to them.

Here is the link to the other pictures The shot before Abbey road album cover

And if you ever make it to London and want to get your picture taken on this famous crosswalk there are a few hints to help out.
The most important one is not to go to subway station called Abbey Rd.  It is on the other side of London from where you want to be.  you need to go to St. John's Wood subway station.

But here are some tips on getting that great pic at Abbey rd.


One Month Later

Well its been a month since my last post. Ive been bad I know. And one of my followers mentioned today that I haven't been blogging lately so I guess I should get back to it.

This is from a daily email I get from another friend every day. He has some great humorous little fun things to share.  I loved today so I thought I would share it with you.  

Environment Canada  has issued a travel warning due to the snowfall and bad  road  conditions.

They suggest  that anyone traveling in the current icy conditions should make sure they  have the following:
Blankets or sleeping bag
Extra  clothing including hat and gloves
24 hours worth of  food
Rock Salt
Flashlight with spare batteries
Road  Flares or Reflective Triangles
Gas can
First Aid Kit
Booster  cables

I looked  like a incredible idiot on the bus this  morning!

E-Mails !!!!

Well, it finally happened.  I've been sending so many e-mails lately, that my cursor actually overheated.    Check it out for yourself.
