(Not That I'm vain, You Understand?) I bought 2 new pairs of glasses today.Here I am trying trying them on this afternoon. I'm using my blog as a mirror.Which is the bestest pair I wonder.....

Amazing images in the video! They did such a great job of editing them all together. And the music fits perfectly. It all gives such a mellow and poignant feel.

That maps is fascinating. Could get wonderfully lost looking at it. Even better with the lovely music playing. Thanks for the relaxing post.

Now as to those glasses...

What a great video. Love that old footage. It looked like Neal Cassidy on the motorcycle, guitar on his back.

What a video and honestly some of your poses with the glasses look like different people not all you...we should be home next week and then I can get back to Sepia routine too.

Hi Tiny - two for the price of one : you must have gone to Specsavers. Thanks for the link to the map - I'm just off there to see if I can find Fixby.

Oh, Pat,They All Are Me!!!! :) But....it's interesting to me you should say that.I,ve always divided people into two 'types'.Some Folk look to me the same at all times.They Have a consistency . whereas others keep looking different!I don't mean smile/frown...I mean The Whole Face.
I know a woman who (especially in photographs) looks like a child sometimes/& looks ten years older the next time.She can look like 2 different people within minutes.....
Sounds like I might have one of those mecurial faces too!!!

Both pairs suit you - thank goodness you went to Specsavers! Thanks for the map link - off there now to see what they did with Salisbury.

That Electric Eden book is quality. If you have Spotify there's an Electric Eden playlist with much of the stuff in the book. http://open.spotify.com/user/seamusr/playlist/3FOZ1HH7EJ4F5TXmffpWIJ
