Nothing to grand but up till now I've just had a basic digital and I really wanted something with more zoom.
I like taking photos but I'm not all that good.

We used to have a couple of Nikon DSLRs but one was stolen in Cairo and we've gone the Leica route since then. Our favourite lens for the Nikon is a 12-24mm wide angle lens which is great for big landscapes.

It's just that us Brits often tend to stick up for each other.

Aren't you folks a bit old to be playing 'gangsters'?

Seems to me that it's unbecoming for a trio of seasoned citizens to act like a pack of rabid dogs.

Are you proud of your behavior?

If the three of you weren't so shamefully pitiful, you'd make the punch line of a geriatric joke.

Age is just a number darling.

Geriatrics ? Not quite yet but I do work with geriatrics now and then and they deserve respect.

Age does have its advantages - free bus pass, pensions, etc. Which means I can continue to grow old disgracefully without the bother of having to work. Yipee!! BTW, you appear to have made a new friend :-)

Personally I prefer 'vicars and tarts', but 'gangsters and molls' is a good second choice.

Oh dear, seems like the Cisco Kid is a bit upset, maybe you need to call in your sidekick Pancho to help you out. I may be considered geriatric, but I still remember as a child wathching those rather corny Cisco Kid movies. They were a bit like a poor man's Lone Ranger and Tonto. I see that a fellow geriatric, Roland, thinks that you have a bible wedged up your ass, well I know a good cure for that. It's a liberal helping of common sense and reason. That should clear things for you. Hi Ho Silver away!

It's good to know that getting older has a few advantages but as the government keeps raising the age for getting them I may have a while to wait.

A new friend? Lucky little me. Excuse me while I do the happy dance. LOL

It does seem like the government wants people to work right up to the day just before they are laid in their coffin. My wife and I are lucky, we qualified before all these new age restrictions. I think it is very unfair that people who have worked all their lives and paid their taxes now find they have to slog on for a few more years. It annoys me when I see the money the goverment hands out in overseas aid when they can't seem to find the money to help the less fortunate in their own country. My wife and I are fortunate in that we also have private pensions and my wife still works because she wants to, but it is a disgrace that there are some older people living in conditions where they can't afford to heat their homes. I am all for charity, but it should begin at home!

There is some information about this here.

"The government has confirmed its plan to launch a single-tier state pension. The long-awaited changes will see everyone entitled to a standard rate of £144 a week in today's terms, as long as they have built up enough national insurance contributions, and will do away with the second state pension and contracting out."

"Rather than paying two separate sums of varying amounts, the government will offer a single pension worth up to £144 a week in 2012/13 terms at the outset. The change will be introduced in April 2017 at the earliest.

As previously announced, the state pension age will increase to 67 between 2026 and 2028."

Thanks for the info but by the time I am eligible for a pension it will most likely have changed again.

Love the dance link. Bit energetic for me today though.
