Good day to you all, firstly I would like to thank you all for taking time out to view, comment and vote on yesterdays upload entitled 'Under Sheppey Bridge', with a further mention going to ChristineD(Christine) for her User Award.

Todays upload is something different a mere observation which looked good enough to east, so after sampling several sweet and sticky handfuls I then snapped away. The title sums up my photography and uploads, you just never know what you are gonna get....

I hope that you all have a great day for me 'Life is like a box of chocolates..."

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrinGrin

Jelly beans, how I loved jelly beans. I can't see any black ones though! Perhaps they don't have them any more or someone with the taste I had as a child has taken them all.

At least you get the choice between jelly beans and smarties here, life isn't always that kind.
It's when you are left with nothing but the tangerine cremes that life gets really annoying.
