The balloons and the Red Arrow planes have finally disappeared from the Bristol skyline - it was fun while it lasted!
The Red Arrows were very special. They swooped, twisted and swerved at incredible speed. They even managed to create a heart-shape in smoke - I captured this brilliantly with my digital camera (!)
Or maybe not!
Asha, we miss you! We'd love to hear more about the exciting things going on in your life - the job change, the banking exams. Your first post created a lot of interest and we'd like to read more.
I read something interesting about India yesterday. Apparently its online population is currently around 50-80 million - less than 10% of the population. But this figure is growing fast and India's Internet usage is expected to be third behind China and the US by 2013. I'm guessing that most computers are currently found in the urban centres rather than the rural hinterland.
Here's a teaser to finish. We have an expression in English 'my/his name is mud'. Does know anyone know what this means? And for those of you who like really hard questions - where does it come from?
swooped - dive low like a bird
swerved - suddenly change direction
hinterland - undeveloped area
teaser - a playful challenge
