To coin a phrase "it's been like the battle of the Somme" here since around 3pm yesterday. Even during the day there are fireworks going off.

Belated Happy Birthday Max.


The Fireworks up here started about 30 mins before the clock ticked over.

Actually for some people is may have been a day or so before but these days you never know whether it's just someone's birthday, a wedding or a random "other event" of some sort.

They started about 8pm here and were spasmodically going off until well into early hours. I put the late fireworks down to alcohol affected time-keeping.....

What is it about steam trains that we of a certain age find so appealing?
Excellent stuff.

Didn't come on here yesterday, so Happy New Year to you all.

Happy New Year to all from an occasional poster and regular reader.

Unexpected reminder of delta at the Brooklands New Years Day gathering at the link below. Remember seeing him on Le Mans Classic streaming in the summer.

Sue and I did our usual and went and joined the throngs in Mojacar square with the fireworks off the church roof and free Cava and grapes at midnight. We then went to the Jazz Café and watched a band until 3am. I had to get up to film the Charity swim in the sea down the road on the Playa that I put on my Site for the locals.
Although the water at this time of year is warmer than the UK it was still pretty nippy !

Some of them obviously watched it as it's had 400 views !!
