While in New Zealand for our son’s wedding

in 2018 we visited the

Whakarewarewa Maori VillageOur guide explained some of the

Maori culture and customs.

We were entertained with dancing.

And while we were enjoying all of the above

our lunch was being cooked in

the traditional Maori manner.

And it was delicious.

SUNDAY-STILLS-PC-Sweet

I have a very sweet tooth…

…so whenever I hear or see the word sweet

my mind imagines something like this.

Trouble is since having my knee

replaced in late October,

I have managed to shed 6-8 kilograms

(about 13-17 pounds) and I wish

to remain that way.

So now I just dream of the

sweeter life…and hope

for a longer one.

Bullecourt Battlefield,

World War I,

France

Our guide told us that the German Army

held the high ground…

…and that British Army held the lower ground.

 

At a British General’s command soldiers

were expected/ordered to walk up these slope

without any regard for their own life.

Allegedly after three or four attempts

to advance to higher ground, and

losing thousands of soldiers for nothing…

…the British hierarchy decided that

it would be okay for the men

to try and protect themselves…

…from being slaughtered by

the German Army’s enfilade fire.

…with angry seas.

 

…showing us some of the smoke haze

from this season’s forest cleanup.

…setting sun on a smoky day.

The sun is original.

All other parts of the image

have been lightened a tad.

 

…nature’s jewels.

Colourful nature.
