A walk in the woods

This is Dibden Enclosure in the New Forest.

One of the fallen, 1918

An ancestor on my mother's side was Richard Knight, 1880/1918. 
May we remember all who gave their lives for us.

New Forest

I am sure you all are getting board with our kitchen picture so here is a pony!
And this is at Ashlett Creek, looking across Southampton Water.
I am not sure about that landing stage for getting ashore from a boat!

Kitchen refit, 2

 I can wash up in the kitchen sink now.
But the gas hob has no gas so Ann cannot cook on it yet.

The new view

The window provides more light!
And a better view.

Kitchen refit, 1

In a day it was all gone!
 Starting with the tiles
 Then the wall
And the bigger window to go in soon
We have a camping stove and the oven set up in the spare room.  Washing up on the dining room table.  Contents of the kitchen in boxes somewhere on the floor!

Not long ago I saw the President of America admiring the stones at Stonehenge.  Time off away from politics talking casually to a single family of four.  Just the five people and a camera man to record the event.

Then I saw the President of Russia shake hands with the winning driver of a Formula One race held in Sochi.  Time off from politics to meet as human beings.

Normally these Presidents have such power to control the world either side of a fence.

We are so lucky to be able to live in such positive times.  But take care, either President could affect the stability of world politics and your life!
