    It over sharpened because you sharpened it a little too much too. Two sharpeners = way over sharpened.

    Is that the mythical money tree all the politicians were going on about?

    Spent a few days in the Mammoth Lakes area of California, near Yosemite National Park. On my last day, I did a hike in the John Muir Wilderness, in the Inyo National Forest. It's pretty hard on the lungs when you're up above 10,000 feet, but the scenery is worth the effort, and it was a perfect day.

    Believe it or not, there are 16 people in that gondola plus the pilot, at £150 a head, they go up to a mile up apparently. What a view from up there though, I am tempted.

    I waited camera poised for the burner to come on wanting the bright flame, but they toyed with me only turning it on when my arms got tired and I lowered the camera! :)

    Looks like a model 319 to me. Mid-1930s.


    Edit:

    Yep. Found some other pics online.

    One commenter on this photo identifies it as a 319/55, belonging to someone called Mark Garfitt.

    And here's a post by Garfitt himself about his car. He even mentions the license plate number.

    Great sleuthing mhendo ! I thought it was the most interesting car there, even notwithstanding a nice red E type.

    Either a cormorant or a shag - can be hard to tell the difference.

    I'm pretty sure that's a cormorant.

    I was under the impression that cormorants and shags are basically two names for the same type of bird. In Australia, we tend to use the two terms interchangeably. Wikipedia seems to agree, saying:

    "There is no consistent distinction between "cormorants" and "shags" as these appellations have been assigned to different species in these genera at various points in time, with no real quantifiable differences between the two terms."

    A shagged out cormorant then

    It was an epic swan dive ....

    The RSPB differentiates between em, so the terms have specific meaning in the UK at least.

    In the UK there are two distinct species. One is referred to as a Cormorant, the other as a Shag. This also from Wikipedia:
