I'm probably a bit out of date, but the other day in Reading I was surprised to see a poster for a travelling fair which said £10 entrance inclusive of al;l rides (or something like that).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

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.

Evening, I too had a brilliant day traipsing all over the cliff tops,sunny and cloudy on and off got my face burned,had a pint in the beachy head pub, had a natter with the current owner of the lighthouse, negociated a deal for a night in October, met 2 nice ladies from Twickenham, and took a load of photos.
Posted by signmanSB, I always use a polarizer on landscape photos. It deepens the sky and gets rid of water reflections, here's another one from today.
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.
