    Hmpf. Somebody orta issue some kind of THREAT, so that Homeland security clamps down EVERYTHING in DC!

    It would be on top of the news, and I'd be sitting in my livingroom, watching those fencepassers in chains live on TV. Suspicious boxed handed over secretly? I bet they'd disappear from the face of the earth!

    Earnestly lads, I hope you're succesful in the endeavour, has plenty light and give us all interesting images. I think both #7s will reach the finish line before both #6 and the MIA #1.

    Anything in the mail for the little cottage on the Channel island today?


    PS anyone beat my turn-around time? 1h 55 minutes from recipt to having taken 2 pictures, rewrapped the parcel and left it with the mail? Methinks that is hard to beat!

    I'm waiting for the postman right now!......

    .... and the Isle of Wight isn't really known as a channel island (even though we are in the English channel. That description is reserved for Guernsey, Jersey, Alderney and Sark all of which are closer to France than England.

    ironically, despite the Isle of Wight being about four miles south of the English mainland we tend to think of ourselves as separate from England (although in reality we are not).

    Steve quick question: during WW2 the channel islands where all occupied, right? While your little island was not?
    Four miles off the coast is what we recon to be a good rifle shot over here!

    Will you show us pictures of the little beatles cottage?

    You're welcome Lisa... anything I can do to help er I mean...

    Erik that painted a mighty picture.. I can almost see them, in their chains, on the 9 o'clock news here "....suspicious package believed to have originated in Ireland. Reports are coming in of a similar second package on it's way to Australia via the UK....."

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?
