Talking about motorbikes at lunch time today, prompted me to check on mine when I got home from work. Sitting in the garage on trickle charge, waiting for the better weather I can take the bike to work instead of the car.

Today the RAF have been at the centre to help with various tasks, one of which was help to our volunteer gardener Jane.
Jane always brings her lovely two dogs to the centre with her whenever she is gardening. Just before we packed up for the day it started to snow, it was so funny to see both dogs sheltering in one of the gardening sheds watching Jane.

Abit of a disappointment this morning, the moon was obscured by the clouds, so I missed my chance to take a picture of the red moon.
Gaynor had lit a scented candle tonight, I tried to take a picture of the candle, try as I might, I couldn’t get rid of either the reflection of the flame in the lens or movement of the flame, I’m not sure which. Time to read up on the subject and try again another time.

Super Blood Wolf Moon
The Moon will turn red in the early hours of Monday morning as Britain experiences its last total lunar eclipse for 10 years. The Moon will start to darken at 2.35am with full eclipse beginning at 4.40am. It will be free of the Earth’s shadow by 7.49am.
It is the last chance for to see a total lunar eclipe in its entirety until 2029.
A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth passes exactly between the Sun and the Moon creating a shadow which stops solar rays reaching the lunar surface.
I’m hoping to get up at 4:40 and see if I can capture a piture of the super blood wolf moon.
Here is a before picture.

I have just finished reading a historical book about the early days of the SAS. My new book has been recommended by my friend Graham. The book is “The Railway Man” by Eric Lomax. I have resisted watching the DVD, because he said to read the book first and then watch the DVD. It will be interesting to see how the film differs from the book.
