We live at a time ...characterized by a subliminal relativism that penetrates every area of life. Sometimes this relativism becomes aggressive, when it opposes those who say that they know where the truth or meaning of life is to be found. Benedict XV1.

I like that one of you with the bull and your polo shirt looks good, John has one like it in a sort of rust colour. I prefer the blue though.

The words Toro Loco on the bull's T-shirt mean Crazy Bull while those on the machine mean 'Convert your coin into a medal'. The streets in the centre of Pamplona where the bulls run are quite narrow, which makes it more dangerous as the runners and bulls tend to get jammed together causing accidents, mostly getting trampled on when falling or being gored.

Yes, Lyn I like that blue polo shirt too.However, it was too hot for those clothes.In fact I don't have too many clothes for summer use.
I have to use my photo bucket sparingly as I don't know how many photos they will allow me .

What I find surprising is that there as many as 30 comets predicted for 2017. I didn't expect that many.
