As ever I seem to start my rare posts with an apology for absence ... sorry, folks.  My CFS has been tripping me a bit, so I seem to have spent the last couple of weeks working, or sleeping ... although I have managed to get these 20 icons done for episodes20in20 .... with my episode being episode 2, of season 2 of Stargate SG 1 ... "In the line of Duty"

Here are the 3 teasers -

30th-Sep-2018 06:12 pm - Vienna
DJ - plaited!
And so to the second country of my trip ... Austria.  I had been briefly to Salzburg back in 1981, as we were/are all fans of The Sound of Music.  However, weirdly, Mum always was sure we had been to Vienna, and nothing could change her mind ... so, Mum, 37 years later I managed to catch up with you ... 2 days in Vienna.

Pottering around the cityCollapse )

Day 2, we went to the Schönbrunn Summer Palace. The Emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire lived here ... well until 1918, when the 2 countries became republics. My parents actually knew someone who was born here, not long before that date, as his mother was Companion to the Empress.
A beautiful Summer residenceCollapse )

James - Rock On!
When we left Prague, we didn't travel directly to Vienna, but went out of our way to visit the town of Telc ... and it was well worth the detour.

Well worth a stopCollapse )
22nd-Sep-2018 04:44 pm - Pottering Around Prague
James - totally fascinated
Well I think the hard thing has been to just pick a few photos to give you an idea of what the city of Prague looks like ... As you can imagine, I took loads more, but here are just a few for you to peap at .... enjoy

Enjoying a stroll around The Czech RepublicCollapse )

20th-Sep-2018 11:25 am - I'm Back!!! ....
Scorpio (B7)
.... Although as I have been so intermittant, I doubt you missed me!

Anyway, I will try better, although as I took "a few" photos while away, I may be a bit in & out.  However, if you want, I will post here.

Three amazing cities, and a couple of fascinating towns, mosttly a superb group ... means as well as lots of photos, there was lots of laughter.  The 9 days went so, so fast.

Jiffy is home, and snoring at my feet, as I type.  I think he had a fun time, as well ... but he seems even happier to be home.

Hope your September's are going well ... if I missed anything vital, let me know.  I will try to catch up as I go over the next day or so.

Group *hugs*
5th-Sep-2018 05:53 pm - Stargate Season 1 Icons
Stargate - View
I have managed to get a full set of 20 done, and posted before the (extended) deadline!! This set is for episodes20in20 and we got to pick a season, but then the episode was chosen for us. I thought it would be nice to do some Stargate SG1, again, so chose season 1, and had one of my favourite episodes chosen, so that was nice - "There But for the Grace of God"

Here are the 3 teasers ....

James - Discovery Channel
Well I did warn you I wouldn't be around much at present - and here I am 2 posts in a week.

Christine & I went on our last weekly trip yesterday ... we went to Trerice House in Cornwall. Apparaently the house was what prompted the author of Poldark to write some of his stories.

Didn't see Ross, sadlyCollapse )

I know, the days have literally disappeared ... I have hated not being abole to get to LJ, but there again, if I hadn't let something go, everything would have gone!!

Click, only if you want to be bored by a long update rambleCollapse )

Wow ... wonder if you managed all that!

29th-Jul-2018 01:57 pm - Italy 2018 - Day 6, Rome
I have very few memories of my first trip to Rome, back in 1981 (when I was 20) .... I fell down, head over heals, a section of the the Spanish Steps.  I was totally un-injured, despite coming down 15 steps, but logic has since pointed out, that I was probably in a slight state of shock.

There is a family picture of me in the Colloseum, but I don't remember seeing it.  I know we didn't go into the Forum as Mum was not a sight-see-er  (confused about that spelling!!) ... and said that she didn't see why we had to pay to see a load of Roman rubble!  Over the following years, whenever we went anywhere in Europe, including Greece, she would always call any temples etc "Roman Rubble" ... well, sorry Mum, but you know me ... I went ....

Looking at the rubbleCollapse )
26th-Jul-2018 05:54 pm - 10 Icons
I managed to get my 10 icons done for round 4 of icons10in20 ... only to find that there was an extension. Oh well, they are done, so I will post them anyway! As ever all are snaggable, and any credits are available on my LJ icon journal, D4S_Icons

I will admit I am not 100% happy with a couple of them (or more), but having extra shifts at work, may be good for the bank balance ... but it's murder on icon making time!!  I will o better next time!

Deborah - Portrait of Corage
After we had left the Cistine Chapel we walked across and into St Peter's. I have been to Rome before (more about that in another post) ... but I only have a couple of memories of the city. One is the sheer height of this building, the other is the statue of St Peter that has a damaged foot ... just where people go and kiss it.

Judge for yourself what it is likeCollapse )

Closer to God
The only thing we had to pay extra for on our trip was the visit to the Cistine Chapel.  Soewhere I had wanted to visit, so  paid for the extra.  We had a guide, and although we were not allowed to take pictures in the Chapel itself, we did walk through a section of the museum.  The Pope's over the years have certainly collected a lot of artifacts.

The reason we couldn't take pictutes is actually secular, not religious.  Some years ago Fugi paid to have the paintings cleaned, and they now have copywrite on the images for 25 (I think) years)

The Chapel itself is stunning, and is used as the personal place of prayer for the Pope.  Our guide, before we entered, explained the layout of the paintings, and in doing so made me realise how the whole story flowed ... stunning

Wandering around the Pope's museumCollapse )
21st-Jul-2018 10:33 am - 20 Dr Quinn Icons
Dr Mike & Sully
Oooops - well, I think it is still possibly the 20th (just) somewhere in the world!! Actually I did ask if it was OK, as the week has yet again got away from me. However this set is for round 107 of character20n20 and I chose Dr Quinn, from the series of the same name. I like the storyline, as it is good to remind us (and especially me working in a modern hospital) that medicine has had to evolve to get where we are today.

Here are my 3 teasers
