    Did you actually go? If so d'ya have any pics?

    I found it to be mostly wet.

    With occasional outbreaks of quite extraordinary things - the white-tailed sea eagle being perhaps the most extraordinary of them, though the skunk was quite endearing. The horses were most impressive, as were the dogs. In the final analysis, there were no ferrets.

    And it really was quite wet.

    Only coz i didn't know that you (well, bits of you at least) had gone - no apologies necessary. :)
    I have found http://tinypic.com/ to be relatively pain-free in the past - similar deal to the uploading of an avatar in some ways.

    If you find you can't be arsed then don't be, i was merely curious and it ain't no thing really -
    - yes it was rather good, i thought - shame it was so wet really.
