To mafegan: View line

Hi, Marlene,
hard to say from a Mercator projection, and Dunbar does not show on the scale of my globe. A line to the left of the gap might just catch the south tip of Norway, I think.

To maloutim: daffodils

Thankyou, Marie Louise,
Yes, the clumps of small daffodils are just coming into flower now, but the storms of the last 2 days have made them look a bit sad.
By the way, this photo was taken about...

To batalay: Voice recognition

Perhaps not as well known as in the U.S. But very much enjoyed.
This morning I have been trying to use the version on my new computer but it is not very familiar with my voice yet. Improving,...

To batalay: time

Hallo, Bulent,
Sorry I have taken so long to find the time of day - 09.33. It seems a long time ago! The mornings are much lighter now.
No that's not the sea, probably a bank of fog over the...

To Docarmo: privileged place

Indeed I do feel glad every day that we chose to retire to this place. Always something interesting to see, though less today when there is still a little snow at sea level (and road to Edinburgh is...

To batalay: November

You are right, Bulent, it is bitterly cold here these days - much more so than usual, with lwer temps than ever recorded in some Highland glens last night. It is forecast to last for another week or...

To batalay: arithmetic!

Dear Bulent,
I hesitate to complain about your arithmetic, but it was two years and one month ago! And, what a fusspot I am, Dunbar is in the south of Scotland! Anyway, I think skylights have long...

To Glint: seaside plants

You should have a good chance of a sunny day next time, Bev - it's not called 'sunny Dunny' for nothing!
When we came here in 1987 the previous owner had tried to grow the usual bedding plants here,...

To batalay: Thanks

Dear Bulent,
I'd forgotten that clip - yes, it is brilliant, thank you for making me watch it again. I'm afraid the others in the series are not so intelligible, which is probably just as well for...

To maloutim: the Broadhaven

Good evening, Marie Louise!

Glad you like this view of my back 'garden'. The 'bar' was made by piling stones across the original way to the sea, the Broadhaven.

You can see them <a...

To Ascot: winter!

Dear Amelia,
Glad you remember the threepenny bits too.
Today it is more like winter than autumn; we have had a fierce north wind for two days which makes one feel very cold even in today's bright...

To maloutim: flowers

Thanks, Marie-Louise.
Yes, the columnar basalt is like Staffa and the Giants Causeway - but such a little piece compared with them. I don't know of any old imaginative tales about its origin.
I'll...

Thank you, Serghei.
I have enjoyed looking at your portfolio, particularly the pictures from Perm. Yours is a very different type of countryside from ours, so I am not surprised that the...

To macondo: cameras

Hi again, Andrew.
No, we were well past Box Brownies by 1963, though I can't remember what camera we had then. And I'm not sure which of us actually took this slide.

Thanks, Andrew. Yes, from Australia the setting for Compton Mackenzie's book is "roughly the same part of the world" as the north end of Lewis. But all the islands of the Outer Hebrides are - or at...
