I'm probably a bit out of date, but the other day in Reading I was surprised to see a poster for a travelling fair which said £10 entrance inclusive of al;l rides (or something like that). I've seen an all inclusive price for theme aprks etc before , but not travelling fairs

They are building a ferris wheel on the seafront,will be there for 5 years, and suggested fair is £20, I've done a rough mock-up, it will be 150 feet high, what a bloody eyesore.

What really hack me off about these all inclusive prices is when they charge one price for all, I can see the commercial sense in it, but why should my wife and I who never go on any of the rides have to pay the same price as a teenager who uses all the facilities to the full extent?

Had a fantastic day today, I was allowed to do some work. I helped the son to lay some artificial grass in his garden. He says he is preparing for retirement and doesn't want to be cutting the lawn every five minutes.

Mind you thats a load of rubbish because he pays someone to cut the front lawns, and the only reason he doesn't have the back one done at the same time is because it would mean leaving the gate open.

It comes to something when I look at doing a days work as a treat.

John,

I don't think you meant what it sounds like here, but fair play to you if at 70 years of age one is not enough.

SB, I always use a polarizer on landscape photos.
It deepens the sky and gets rid of water reflections, here's another one from today.

He must have been well thought of if they bothered to put up a memorial to him.

Retired at 54, dead at 62.
It sounds like he had a hard life.


My time is money, I can lend you 10 minutes for lunch.

A Polarizing filter is always a good call John. I also used to use Cokin Graduated filters, I got some good results. Blue skies were always welcome on Wedding shots etc. You could always make lawns look greener than they were.

If he retired at 54 it must have been due to poor health as I wouldn't imagine he made a great deal as a Moor Ranger. I see he got the B.E.M. anybody know what E.R.D. stands for?
