After 17 years as a record/cd sales rep ,today is my last day. To celebrate I have pulled an archive shot of one of the stores I used to go in(anybody remember the Oasis guitar?)
Which one would you want? The Darkness? Ozzy? REM? or possibly Robbie Williams?

Tomorrow(theme day), I start a new job as a taxi driver.(Im either going to love it or hate it!!)

I had never seen this view of the Tyne until a few days ago and when I drove past I had to stop and take a photo. First time I have been able to show both banks of the Tyne. Gateshead is on the left, Newcastle on the right.

Just settling outside my favorite coffee shop before work I spotted this guy getting ready to do some drawing.I took the picture before he started as it was starting to get busy, and I didnt want anyone else in the shot.

The first port of call when you get here? There is certainly plenty to do and see if you want to get the help,but I think its nicer to find your own way around.
