Well, I finally managed to upload some photos from my trip to England from 1985.

Some of the photos look like Bath, but maybe you remember that much. Also, there is one photo of power boat racing, which used to be an annual event in Bristol. Although I expect this wasn't the only city to hold such and event, it does tie in with the photos of Bath and Stonehenge, as they're all very close to each other.

I loved Bath. What a pretty town. I wish we had spent more than one night there.

In the full video version, Mia Tindall drop kicks the queen's handbag into a footman's face. The queen yells "Good shot".

I saw the Purple Rain concert twice when he performed 13 shows in Houston, TX.

At the first show, I had my heart broken when my unrequited love showed up with a date. That was the beginning of possibly the darkest period of my life.

The second show some friends took me there and we got last minute tickets. (nosebleed)


It was a heck of a show other than that.

"A huge manhunt has intensified in the US state of Ohio where police are investigating the deaths of eight members of the same family.
They were all shot in the head in four different locations southwest of Piketon. They were all members of the Rhoden family, said Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader. Mr Reader said he would "suspect the family was being targeted".

Looks like Pike County residents can rest safe in their beds knowing Sherlock Holmes is on the case.
