Vulcanisation
VulcanisationNikon D5300
A few weeks ago we were off to the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power, mainly to see the flypast of the Vulcan.The cars were good and we saw a bit of action on the lake, but the main event was the Vulcan obviously pictured here.To be honest it's the usual thing when we go to a car event... everyone else gets bored really quickly. I'm never sure why I just don't go on my own, still when we were there I found out that my daughter really liked it each time we went to see Touring Cars, until I discovered that she had mixed up Touring Cars with the Autosport show, how she did it I don't know but she did. To be honest we went to two Autosport shows and the second made me feel uncomfortable with a soon to be teenage daughter due t the roles of women in the show. Don't get me wrong, I am no prude but women in the second show just seened to be there for adornment and to stand around in tight lycra. At least in the first one we had Louise Goodman in the live arena giving Jason Plato a run for his money.

Anyway, back to the photo. This is the last year that the Vulcan will be flying and in fact today it flew over Woodford where all the Vulcans were built, unfortunately I couldn't make it to see it again, but it was impressive at Cholmondeley and I'm sure it was impressive today. What I did find out at Cholmondeley was that they user the sam Olympus engine as the Concorde, that's something for a pub quiz.

Dakota DC-3
Dakota DC-3Nikon D5300
We took a trip out for a couple of days around and about Bridlington, and as we turned up to the place we were staying we chanced upon a sign that said that the next day was the Driffield Vintage Air Show and Fair, or something like that anyhow. Now how you can call it an air show with three aircraft with one being a replacement then I don't know, but then again I think I have always been spoilt by the regular trips to Woodford Air Show, however I shouldn't complain too much with the bill comprising of a Hurricain, Spitfire and a Lancaster. The Lancaster being replaced by a Dakota.

So after looking at vintage cars and 2 or three vintage sets of stalls and a car boot, we had about 20-30 minutes of the air show of which this is the Dakota. When it was in the air I realised that the back door was open, but I didn't know that there was a bloke in the doorway waving which you can only see when you zoom in.

Not The Amazing Kreskin
Not The Amazing KreskinNikon D5300
When I was a kid, the face that showed up on the telly when the Amazing Kreskin came on, scared the heck out of me, and it wasn't that scary. I shall have to find in into to see how I fare now. But to be honest this face from Burghley House's sculpture garden isn't exactly a nice one, and they have two. Whilst I have heard of the uncanny valley, this isn't even close to that, it's just sort of ot nice.

Despite this, they do have a few other installations that are interesting like the Pac Man one that I stumbled upon, I personally liked it because it was fun and just something out of ordinary... not that a 10ft face mask isn't. Still the house is nice to visit and the gardens are pretty impressive what with the surprising part, which is a little bit of a Italianesque formal garden with something a bit different. If you're in the area it's definitely worth the trip.

A Mini Revolution
A Mini RevolutionNikon D5300
We were out in Snetterton this weekend and it was a Mini whitewash. We saw 2 Mini qualifying sessions and two Mini races along with other stuff such as Karts on a real circuit and they were flying.

To be honest the two Mini races were really pretty impressive, with the guys at the front running really closefor much of the race, and some daring moves happeining on the outsides of the corners.

To highlight the depths to which the Mini divers were going, if they were committed at Agostini then the front left would lift into the corner with the back left lifting on the double apex corner, as you can see, we have a pair of rear lifters which I think is an easier job than having the front left lift as at the same time as keeping control of the whole situation.

Dear Oh Deer
Dear Oh DeerNikon D5300
Well bearing in mind I've not taken a picture for ages then I needed to get out and a picture of a dear is better than nothing despite the fact that I have quite a few images of dear in my collection. Like I say, the sun was out and so was I, so it was time to celebrate with a picture. To be honest it nearly didn't happen what with everything going on this weekend, but I was insistent and persistent and so we went out. Lucky really because I think the prediction in the middle of the week was it was going to rain all weekend.

Anyway, this is a little deer in the park and that's about it. The ice-cream queue was as long as ever and the wind was a little cold, but apart from the occasional brave dear getting close to the paths, nothing more to report really.
