The barn was here when we bought the place, but it does have a hay loft so I guess it's 2 stories.

I wouldn't mind having a stab at fishing there.
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

These shots are in our town. Its an underground mine that closed half a century ago. When we had the big floods in 2007, the water rushed through all the diggings causing this chaos. Its a no-go zone for us and our trucks now. The mine subsidence is horrific.  ???




A digger of sorts, lost in an instant. Thats the cabin you can see with its digger bit reaching to the sky.

Wow. I hope the equipment driver was home drinking a brew when the cave in happened.

I think it happened in the night mate. Its quite a few acres there though. A real waste of land now.  ???

Without the figures in the background and the JCB in the distance you don't get a real sense of the scale of it all.  Amazing.  Yes I hope there isn't a body in that sunken JCB! Scary eh? Best leave the digger for some archaeologist in the year 4000AD.

Wow, I wish I got beer for volunteering for stuff. Maybe I should try volunteering at cooler places.

Well the reason why we got to take the beer home was because we had a surplus. Took home a 60 pounder bottle of Jack Daniels that was 3 quarters full.

All I got for volunteering at the sci-fi convention was a chat with a graphic novelist, to see the cast of Red Dwarf and ogle hot chicks dressed as super heroines . . . um, maybe it wasn't so bad.
