Her parents agreed to call her ******** because his father loved the Edgar Allan Poe short story by the same name while her mother, being fond of astronomy, had in mind the Coma ******** constellation.

"I discovered that silent film is almost an advantage. You just have to think of the feeling for it to show. No lines pollute it. It doesn't take much - a gaze, an eyelash flutter - for the emotion to be vivid."

Nearly there with some wedding photos, and even a video maybe. The reason for the delay is that I have been waiting for my son and new daughter-in-law to release their own first, but poor things have been unwell, and then had some unexpected demands on their time, then had to go back to work!
They are talking about having a honeymoon in a year!
But, while you wait with bated breath to see me in my Punjabi outfit, here are some more stolen images of New Zealand, where I have lived for nearly six decades.
The first is my own image, Te Mata hills, Hawkes Bay, taken a couple of weekends ago, and dedicated to my dear friend John who used to know this area well, but who now lives in Somerset.
The last three, taken from a small plane, show the extinct volcano Mauo, and the Mount Manganui town on the spit behind, that is the seaside town fifteen minutes from the outskirts of the city of Tauranga, where I live.
As before, if one or two are clearly your own patient loving handiwork, and you wish to be acknowledged or have it removed, please slip me a comment which I will get by email, and need not be published.
