From Etruria to Froghall and Leek very slowly

Hello all. This blog aims to put into context the photographs I shall post over the coming days. We have been on holiday. We have repeated a previous activity - a narrowboat on the canals, which some will have seen pictures of before on here - on a different stretch of water.



There are a number of reasons we go cruising the canals : 1) we can take the dog rather than put him in kennels while we are away - watch for an English Springer Spaniel popping into shot; 2) we can take… Continue

A big day for Ning. Expect afternoon down time while they sort through all the changes.

It looks like we WILL be down starting around noon for up to 2 hours.

Wading Birds Up Close? I like this problem.

Gardening plea!

The question is do we want/need to do a name change? It will cost $6 or $8 a year to register the name and I have to do the red tape with Ning.

Crunch Time

Daily Pics members decided to stay with Ning months ago. We have examined the paid plans offered to go with the 'Plus' plan @ $20 a month or $200 a year. Ning has offered a few ways to gather funds to cover these new charges.

No one likes to ask for or offer money for what used to be free but what can we do.



I have added a Donate tab in the top tool bar and a Donate button at the bottom of the Main page.

Daily Pics will accept donations from any member in any amount with a… Continue
