Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

This is a Menorah that has been erected in Trafalgar square this week in celebration of the Jewish festival of Chanukah. The festival lasts eight days and each day another light  on the Menorah is lit.



  1. Must be a great event that covered 8 days. Have a nice weekend.

  2. That must look very nice and what a good idea ! I can't say this from Brussels, they put the ugliest Christmas tree of the world in the middle of the Grand'Place ! Have a look ! http://gattinawritercramps.blogspot.be/2012/12/brussels-uggliest-christmas-tree.html. amongst other excuses for this thing was that they didn't want to offend the muslims with a traditional Christmas tree ! I spent twice Christmas in Egypt and the two towns I stayed were full of Christmas decorations, I even saw a Father Christmas on a camel coming out of the airport !

  3. Nice capture. Very beautiful 9 candlesticks.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
