When someone says “You’ve changed,” it might simply be because you’ve stopped living your life their way.

Don't worry about temptation;
as you grow older, it starts avoiding you.

I would love to say that you make me weak in the knees but to be quite upfront and completely truthful
you make my body forget it has knees at all. ~ Derrick Brown

 Rogers Folly
Roger's Tower is a tiny square folly built on the ramparts of an Iron age fort on the summit of Castle-an-Dinas. It is more a rough stone hut than a tower, fashioned from large irregular stones. The builder then crafted these into the shape of an 'upturned sand castle mould', with a small rounded turret at each corner. The 4 turrets are each crowned with an extra knob of tapered stones. It has open and blind windows at the front and sides, and a single blind quatrerfoil above the arched gothic doorway. The tower was built sometime in the 18th century for a Mr Rogers, a local landowner as a belvedere to gaze across the land and sea to St. Michael's Mount..

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people
who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it. ~ Mark Twain

“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision
against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.” ~ Cecil Beaton

The Folly on Mow Cop





This is not a ruined castle or church and was built for a wealthy landowner purely to make the view from his big house look interesting and romantic. It’s fenced and fitted with iron spikes to stop people climbing all over it. Not only is there the damage that would be caused by many feet but also the possibility of someone falling and killing or seriously injuring themselves as there is a steep drop over the other side of this hilltop. ( Small image is the view from the back.) There are wide views across the countryside and on clear days there are nine Counties visible from up here. The mountains of North Wales are away to the west and Jodrell Bank Radio Telescope can easily be seen if the dish is facing this way.

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right — for you'll be criticized anyway.
You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have more friends
and more important to have real ones.

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another:
"What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . ."
~ C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves ~

Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you’ll understand
what little chance you have of trying to change others.
