First upload in over a week. The exam board hired me to mark a further batch of papers and these things tend to fill your time. During one of my infrequent breaks, I went to greet the memsahib coming back from a ride with her pals. Her horse is out of picture and the skewbald is not Louis. They were, however, pretty knackered as they had been pounding the forest tracks for hours and it was chucking it down.

"Vindomora' is Latin and refers to a site on Hadrian's Wall, which is not far from here. A few years ago I saw a film, called 'King Arthur', which featured a woad-bedaubed Kiera Knightley as Guenevere and Clive Owen as Arthur (a Roman officer left behind when the legions withdrew). I remember reading a review of this film. It mentioned that part of it was set on a big wall in southern England and asked what the purpose of the wall was. For the enlightenment of that reviewer, Hadrian's Wall is in NORTHERN England and it formed the northern boundary of the Roman Empire. It is the world's largest Roman relic. The reviewer, needless to say, was not British. I will not reveal his true nationality because I have no desire to offend excellent and well-informed EPZers from the other side of the Atlantic.

All of which has nothing to do with the picture, which is of some tired, wet horses. Good to be back.

I saw that film too Dave,and I did not give a stuff about any ''historical'' accuracy.
The fact Kiera Knightley was in it,was good enough for me !!
I saw the blue van in the thumb and thought perhaps the horses were waiting on their eels,
after the blue van I uploaded not too long ago.
And I do hope they are not waiting to eat the ponies inside the van !!

Know how they feel. Muggy and hot day here and horses, riders and helpers all knackered. Stick me in that van and take me home. Grin
