Nice colorful photo, you should have put on a short movie to see it all. How would that work out Brian.

Nice one David. Coincidentally I took the same shot last night - and shot some video!

Where is this? I went to the one opposite the Pier, but I believe it closed. That was great.

This is where I did all my family history - before computerisation! Not been in for a while - must pay a visit! Nice picture.

Nice shot, David - it completely passed me by that Prof Joann Fletcher was there last night - would have loved to have gone. Nevertheless there is another Egypt exhibition in June - hopefully they will have the gold death mask on display!

Andrew,I'd completely forgotten about
JoAnn Fletcher being there last night..and I too would loved to have
gone..do you think she would come back if we asked nicely..she certainly knows her stuff doesn't she.
