Starting from number one there are five new photographs on the Photo Page.

Made from a photo I took of decorations in Nottingham. A Very Merry Chris Moose to You All.

Is that Padfoot?? Santa and Reindeer in Victoria Shopping Centre, Nottingham

The Pantomime in Nottingham this year is Cinderella . This is reflected in the entrance to Santa’s Grotto in the Shopping Center. The last two photos are from that scene.

Cinderella and the Prince.

Cinderellas Pumpkin Coach.

Poor Ewy is a little lost now that Willow and Gypsy are now stabled. She will normally eat with one or the other when we put the feed out in the Horse Field. I believe Vicky sent in a photograph of Ewy eating with one of the Horses. Arnie, Lady and Emmi are turnout in the days. When they come in for their feed, Ewy runs part of the way in with them but she is to frightened to come all the way. She may decide to return with the other Sheep. She has been getting a lot closer than in the past. If I could catch her I would put her in with the Fillies as she is quite old and the feed that she gets with the Fillies will help her survive the Winter if it turns really bad.

Below is an email that I received from Michael in the US Virgin Island in reply to an email I sent him this morning. It will keep you up to date with the underwater webcam that we are hoping to broadcast with. It is going on a bit and I am disappointed that it is not up and running.

Sorry I didn’t respond to your last email but I did not receive an email
from you. Could you have possibly sent it using another account? I never
check junk mail, it is automatically deleted.

Regardless, here is the status of the placement of the webcam. Everything
is still a go but getting one additional agency’s approval is now necessary.
I had zero knowledge that Fish and Wildlife had any input and was broadsided
by the news. The delay is that the official approval cannot be obtained
until their next meeting, Jan 14th. Upon learning of the additional
requirement, the sponsor providing the battery has held back and will not
release the battery until final approval is granted, which is 90% guaranteed
on the 14th.

After everything is in place, we are looking at a February installation date
due to Homeland Security issues. The month of January brings 11 Cruise
ships to the mounting area. Because the areas are “swept” by divers very
often before a ship visit, we will have to wait until February when the
number of visits slows to 3.

I’m trying my best to get this up and running for your, mine and the world’s
enjoyment. There are just stumbles along the way in every first time
endeavor. Sorry for the delay.

With regards,

Michael
