(Part of) my failed first attempt at '5 on the 5th'.

These are three of the five pics I had ready to post on Stephen's (State of the Nation') 5/5th feature but couldn't work out how to get there. Even posting them as a normal blog is so laborious and I've got to do it in reverse order of its appearance. As for linking this with Stephen's site, I don't know how. Cubby of 'Patently Queer' suggests that the 'Blogger' software is not up to the task, at least not with ease. So for the moment I'll put the intention of joining this 'family' on the back burner. Anyway, here they are.

Above: My NEW shirt from 'Next' - a snip at £15!

Above: 'Waterless Garden' (i.e. 'Rainfall-only) on Worthing sea-front.

Above: My technicolour meal. Mushroom omelette ('mush-let') using 3 eggs, + pots (boiled), cauli, beans, toms. Mmmmmm mmmmmm!

Well, after that time-costly effort I'll ruminate on how I can progress on this matter. Meanwhile let's see what others are offering this month.


  1. Great pics, Ray. I especially like the Waterless Garden.

    I tried Blogger when I first started blogging 2 years ago and after a week of trying and failing to post pics, I gave up and switched to WordPress. Others post pics on Blogger everyday. How they do it remains a mystery to me.

  2. Thanks, Cubby. Yes, the mysteries of computing are beyond some of us. I'm now toying with the idea of transferring to WordPress too - but how one does it brings yet another load of bafflement.

  3. Ray, glad to see you join us! Sharp shirt for a sharp person! The Mush-let looks yummy. The waterless garden speaks for itself. Beautiful!

  4. Thanks for being 'glad', Kyle, but I only feel frustration at being unable to actually join the 'club' because of either my lack of computer knowledge or inadequate software. But I'm not giving up.
    Very grateful for your comments on my pics. They've made it feel all worthwhile.

  5. I must say this was the nicest pic of you I've ever seen Ray ;)

  6. Thanks, Tai - but you don't know how many attempts I made! :-)
