I'm watching "Good Bye, Lenin!" (2003).
A son and daughter perform a deception that the communist DDR is continuing in 1989/90, in an attempt to prevent their deeply socialist mother from suffering another heart attack.
A breakthrough performance by Daniel Brühl.
Absolutely superb film. Highly recommended.
Kirk, and for that matter the Star Trek TOS episode, is saved by Nona, portrayed by Nancy Kovack.
See, I told you everyone in "space" was beautiful.
I recently bought a pair of Meindl Burma GTX boots. I've been wearing them on a daily basis for the last two weeks. They are still very stiff, and yet, surprisingly comfy. The GTX (I think) refers to the Gore-tex lining. I can confirm, that the boots have been 100% waterproof, so far, despite some atrociously wet, and snowy, conditions.
The boots were quite expensive, but, I am am very pleased with the purchase. I go for dog walks three times per day, and good footwear is important to me.
I've mentioned before that #Gruoch has, without any training, taken it upon herself to wait patiently, while I photograph subjects. I've now noticed that she actually watches the wildlife I'm photographing.
Here she is looking across the canal, directly at the Cormorant, as I'm photographing it.
Eventually, I will just get Gruoch to take the photographs, too.
For the last few weeks I've been seeing this juvenile Great Cormorant (Gairgeann - Phalacrocorax carbo) on a canal pontoon. Any time I've seen it, I didn't have a telephoto lens. Any time I took a long telephoto lens, I wouldn't see the bird. This photo is a crop from an image taken with my 40-150 zoom. Not ideal, but, acceptable.
To allow the birds to catch fish by diving, they don't have oily feathers. Consequently, they have to dry their wings.
I haven't posted any photos of tree harvesting equipment for ages. Time to put that right.
This is a Ponsse Scorpion King 8WD Harvester. Nice looking machine, and #Gruoch thought so, too.
The Rock wasn't anywhere to be seen.
