That looks like a fun fair, Imac You got great photos of the train, which appeals to the part of me that doesn't want to grow up. ;-)

I love fairs! I try never to miss the local ones, although I seldom go at night. The lights make for very colorful photos!

Well that's a colourful fair.Thanks for sharing. You said you wanted to hear the sound of the musical instruments. Well tomorrow evening you'll hear, if everything goes according to plan, the didgeridoo for ABC Wednesday.
I spent the whole afternoon to make this video.

Hi Imac, I didn't know it was Christmas again already! Mind you with all the snow we've had, it may as well be.

It's lovely and sunny while I'm typing this. So it looks like it'll be a nice day all round.
