Cut To The Bone 


Alex Caan

Cut to the Bone, written by Alex Caan, deals with all things ranging from an apparent abduction, kidnapping, Vlogging (video blogging), social media and how teens or young adults mange to converse happily expose their lives to a faceless online community.

While in pursuit of a hobby which provides a source of income a young girl is abducted.  It is here that we see how vulnerable the young are and how they can groom and be groomed, by a friend, or fan pretending to being someone else in an on-line persona.

The involvement of a multi-national company to financially support vloggers contributes to the plot when the vlogger discovers that sponsors often do not share the same ideals as young bloggers.

As I have often stated the narrator can make or break an audio book.

In this instance I thought Imogen Church injected life into each of the characters in Cut to the Bone, especially the male characters. Doubtless, not everyone will agree with my assessment.


A definite three star read.

Odd Ball

Week 13, 2017


In my view these a creepy photos, however,

I am sure there are those who will disagree.

Not the greatest photo but it gives an idea

of what ‘getting ready for lunch’ means.

A wrapped meal.

Morning sun has made these images…

in my opinion.

Black and White Challenge:



I may have stretched the G and H

connection this week.

However, all photos were taken in…

the Grand Hotel, La Pace, Naples.

The grandeur of the hotel is first seen as guests walk in the door.


This beautiful table sits in the middle of the foyer….

and after one admires the table

your eyes follow the line of the staircase

and eventually come to rest on this chandelier.


After climbing the staircase there is an

easy view into the chandelier.

It definitely deserves the title

Grand Hotel.

The Grand Hotel also featured in this week’s

Floral Friday  post


Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Letters-G-or-H








As I live Down Under and it is now Autumn

I decided to post an Autumn theme this week.

When on the farm it was always said that if

Autumn rains came before St Patrick’s Day,

they were too early.

If they came after St patrick’s Day,

they were too late, and

if they came on St. Patrick’s Day,

they would spoil the races.

This was as close to a St. Patrick’s Day autumn break,

in weather, we have had for many years.

This is our back yard after 50 mm, 2 inches of rain

had fallen on the March 19 and 20.

Black and White Tuesday

 March 21, 2017



Monday was the best surf at Torquay for some time.

Still only relatively small waves, however,

there were some good rides.

Furthermore, I had never seen a surfer using a paddle before.

Or is that a paddle boarder, surfing.

It seemed to aid with balance at times.

I like this shot with the water splashed up around his knees.

I think here is a whole range of captions

which could be applied here.

Definitely my favourite for the day.



Hope you enjoyed.
