If the Daily Mail isn't good for anything else it at least has lots of pretty pictures. laugh.gif
When I lived in the UK I bought the daily mail for the cryptic crossword - didn't have so many pictures in those days ('60s & '70s) - probably assumed people could read back then rolleyes.gif


These came from the DM too but the guys website is ( added below) definitely worth a visit. wink.gif

It's tat time of year again: National Geographic's photographer of the year ...

... this was not a winner in the "Would You Like a Dash With That, Madam?." category - cos Ah didnae send it in (to spare Bonnie & Kurt's blushes)

The ones which are all in here (below) are copyrighted so I couldn't pick out my favourite for you so you'll have to content yourselves with Kurt taking Bonnie for a wee drink until you open the link rolleyes.gif

Wee edit here:-
Daily Mail to the rescue again:
