#BBQ #Barbecuing Beef Short Ribs Korean Style





Food tastes best when shared with friends!

Waiting to fill petrol (or should I say gas) ☺

Interesting, people will leave their mini vans unattended to admire an R8 


Anyway, good to know I'm not the only Audi driver who fills at Shell

Whatever you drive, drive safe!

#Wildlife I was about to switch off the lights and go to sleep now, when suddenly ...

 ... I see this skunk savouring sunflower seeds ...


Seeds that have fallen off the bird feeder






Sweet dreams, goodnight, I'm off to sleep!

♫ Listening to Clint Eastwood

I think actors who can sing are true artists!



"Your world is nothing more than all the tiny things you've left behind
So realign all the stars above my head ..." - Clint Eastwood and Jamie Cullum

#Art #Painting #Wildlife Have you ever been chased by wild elephants? ☺

Happened to me some years ago ...  


                                             ... before digital cameras were available


Thankfully I was not hiking, but on two wheels instead!





That was sufficient inspiration for a painting
