The tweets are back, and the woodpecker pecks
A woodpecker has been pecking on the beams on the outside of my office wall. He's driving le crazy and making huge holes in the beautiful facade of our house.
To add to the woodpecking noise, the red tailed birds have come back for the sixth or seventh year running and built their nest on the beams above our terrace. The chicks are very hungry and tweet endlessly as the parents go back and forth collecting food.

Funny signs and French Cheese in England
In England this week. I'd forgotten about English breakfast, it's been so long...black pudding and baked beans.
I did enjoy a Brie and crispy bacon sandwich with cranberry.
I also found some incredible cheeses including cheddar with hot Jalepeno chilli pepper, Stinking Bishop Cheese and a "Pom'Calva" cheese from Normandy laced with Calvados! (see picture right)

Been clearing out the house and came across this hilarious sign stolen from a Cairo hotel room, no doubt by one of my ancestors.

Travels in the West Indies
|We have had cable TV and internet for several years but now, at long last, the big screen has arrived in Bequia. See here for Keegan's Resort||More people are killed every year by falling coconuts than by sharks||Beautiful Union Island. You are not allowed to die there but there is a fast catermeran ferry boat now. See here for the Amerindi Hotel||Union Island was known for something reflected in local architecture|

Beast in the garden
What is this strange lizard we found in the garden?
Apparently they bite and you have to burn them off if their jaws clamp down on your finger. Some kind of salamander?
Ugly, but rather beautiful animal.
Note the guitarist's finger.

More monsters in the house
More monsters in the house, this one is a mantis of some kind, praying or not.
The fête in our local village St Sozy lasted three days, non stop party. The "fishing for ducks" stands were particularly interesting. Also this weekend, the Gramat country music festival, great fun. See details here
