Getting a little "Hygge"

The Danish have a word that basically means appreciating life's simple pleasures that word is "hygge" pronounced "hoo-ga" and this principle is just a part of everyday life for Danes and all Scandinavians and even though they live in some of the coldest parts of the world they still manage to be some of the happiest people around.

Vintage by the sea......

The great vintage revival seems to go from strength to strength and if the North West seaside town of Morecambe was anything to go by on Sunday 4th September 2016 it is continuing because Morecambe was crowded!  The promenade around the Midland Hotel and along the stone jetty was throng with people of all ages walking along, laughing and having a thoroughly grand day out.

Art and entertainment of all kinds was enjoyed in the warm early Autumn sunshine, classic cars from all...
