Odd Customs

In Salzburg, immediately after the wedding ceremony, the bride and groom leave the church, and head to The Institute to consummate the marriage in front of the entire city council.

There's no legal or religious reason for this, it's just that the Mayor is a filthy bugger.

Subject to A+E and Police visits, I may report back.

The Tour o' da' Toons

With the 2017 Tour de France coming to an end, it's a chance to remember the glory days of the Tour o da' Toons.

Held between 1991 and 2008 (with a break for the swine flu outbreak of 2001), the TodT was a cycle road race around the towns of Huntly, Newmacher, Udny, Echt and Ellon.

This shot shows the eventually winner Calumn Gilhooly (no 604) who appears to have been racing on behalf of  the "Highland Cress Bob" team.

Poverty as Local Colour

From the same set of slides as yesterday's Elephant Safari slide, so I imagine this is the cringe-making "And these were the locals" slide.

Something to show the neighbours, and feel superior over.

Tragically, this should be interesting.

but, alas, it's merely mildly interesting.

A close look at the slide, tho painful, suggest that teh subject is (could be?) a bunch of folk setting off on an Elephant Safari.

Or so it appears.

Junior and Nan

From a box marked "Americans smiling at the Camera 1960's", here was have a picture of....yes, you guess it.

Difficult to believe that junior grew up to be Charlie Sheen.

Because, that's almost certainly a lie.

So, who recognises this castle?

A clue - it's name is misleading - it's not near the City that the name would suggest.
