Arthur Askey - Busy Bee!

They don't make them like this anymore! Enjoy Arthur singing what was probably his most famous song. Here, he chatters for some 1min 40sec before launching into his eccentric performance. Considering how popular he was, then, people today don't know what to make of it. Just click on the screen and enjoy!

Wild Cat!

I photographed this wild cat at a wildlife sanctuary in Belize. Now, I cannot remember what breed it is. Does anyone have any ideas, please?

Desert Encounter!

I walked past a plastered wall and noticed that a piece of plaster had fallen away and revealed this eye. It reminded me of the veiled face of a bedouin woman. When I was a baby, my mother caught sight of a desert nomad heading in her direction. He galloped his stallion furiously towards her and she, evidently, held me up in front of her. He pulled his horse up at the last moment in a cloud of dust. With a hand resting on his Khanja (a large curved knife), he raised his ancient rifle above his head in salute and raced off back into the Cyrenaican desert! What do you see in this picture?
