Otoño (Autumn)

Click on the excellent Otoño (Autumn) Google logo for a beautiful autumn photo from Westonbirt - a must for all nature lovers: "Westonbirt, The National Arboretum is one of the most spectacular tree gardens in the world. An historical collection of over 3,000 different trees and shrub species many of which are rare or endangered in their native lands." ...and of course there are plenty of decent pubs [Ale Trail] nearby to aide and abet one's relaxation :-)

Yes, I see what you mean. I must admit that in other ways I don't like autumn. Back to school, the nights drawing in etc. Still, at least there's the football season to provide a bit some relief, even for a Sunderland supporter.

When our goalie saved a penalty last night to get us through to the next round of the Whatever-it-is-this-season Cup, a bloke in the crowd removed his prosthetic leg and waved about in the air!

The joy of being a Mackem!

"a bloke in the crowd removed his prosthetic leg and waved about in the air!"...brilliant!

One of my UK contacts (and all her family) for marketing is a Sheffield United fan...scared to contact them now!

No problem, Span. Just don't mention the words "six", "match", "cup", "exit" or "Arsenal" and you'll be fine!

hahaha...I'll try ut as we always seem to talk about footy it could be difficult - my plan is to wait for them to make the 1st move.

Just noticing the times of the comments: you must have posted yours almost immediately before and after mine (in TIME I know they are like that in ORDER) Same happened with me and Gildy on Monday.
