Who needs a flash camera..?

These colourful berries caught my eye this afternoon, on a Pyracantha (Firethorn) shrub in my front garden.

Autumn has definitely arrived where I live, though the sun was out today and it is a little warmer than usual.

Naturally I thought I would use the good lighting conditions to photograph this colourful sight.

My afternoon car hunting...

Having looked at several websites for local car dealers over the weekend, and posting the details of some of the cars that I liked on Google+, I decided to take a look at a couple of them on one of the forecourts today.

Sadly the car that I was most interested in, a Peugeot 307 HDi Estate, had sold over the weekend, so it was something of a wasted trip, but I still managed to look at a couple of others on my list.

Have Aliens been stealing the fuel from my Lawnmower...?

That would explain my missing fuel...
I was most befuddled this morning. I could have sworn that I filled the fuel tank of the lawnmower before I put it away a couple of weeks ago, but when I got it out of the garden store and tried to start it this morning, I found that it was empty.

Is my memory failing me...?

Has somebody syphoned the fuel out the tank, despite it being in a locked store...?

Have aliens landed in my back garden overnight and used superior technology to steal my fuel and use it to refuel their flying saucer...?

Or perhaps even borrow my lawnmower to make some crop circles...?

What replaces the tax disc...?

For once, I am one of the first in the UK to get my hands on something new.

Sadly it's only a car tax reminder from the DVLA, which dropped through my letterbox this morning, but there is a quite a big change this year. The tax disc is being phased out.

I will therefore be one of the first motorists driving around on UK roads without needing to display an old-fashioned tax disc.

I might even make a special trip at midnight on 31st August, just so I can tick 'driving on the roads with no tax disc' off my 'bucket list'...

The Daily Coffee Club: Mug of the Day: September 11, 2014

I'm just trying Bloggers re-blog facility at the moment. It is not something I have used much before, but it might be a useful way of winkling a few extra blog postings out of nowhere, when inspiration deserts me...

Which is definitely not the case here.

I'm sure that anybody who has ever watched Scooby Doo, as a child or adult, will want one of these.

The Daily Coffee Club: Mug of the Day: September 11, 2014: Scooby-Doo Coffee Mug from RetroPlanet

Sadly, it's on back on order at the moment, which nicely proves my point...!
