Ha Ha I went to the Indian Temple on Sunday night to start my celebration with them. A super night and plenty of activities with a fab fire work display at the end. Fudge

Are those Christmas lights over Penny Meadow?  :))


"May this Diwali bring joy, health and wealth to you. May the festival of lights brighten up you and your near and dear ones lives. May the Diwali light show us the way and lead us together on the path of peace harmony WISH U A VERY HAPPY DIWALI"    

"Diwali is one of the biggest festival of Hindus, celebrated with great enthusiasm and happiness in India. The festival is celebrated for five continuous days, where the third days is celebrated as the main Diwali festival or 'Festival of lights'. Different colorful varieties of fireworks are always associated with this festival. On this auspicious day, people light up diyas and candles all around their house. They perform Laxmi Puja in the evening and seek divine blessings of Goddess of Wealth. The festival of Diwali is never complete without exchange of gifts. People present diwali gifts to all near and dear ones."

Diwali is on Wednesday, October 26, 2011.

Thanks for the pics Bill,I love seeing the changes and trying to figure my way around !!! isn,t the pub on Lees rd opposite St Damians? When I was at school there a long time ago it was a little old place, and we seniors would nip over the road to buy crisps, that was when the Hartshead estate was newly built.
Politicians and nappies should be changed frequently...and for the same reason!!!

Thanks Fudge and yes, I plan to use it for my Christmas cards. Everytime I looked round it was there looking over my shoulder, I couldn't believe how close it came.

Hi Bill,
Thank you for your very interesting pictures, they really keep us up todate 'downunder' We are so lucky having you and Vanessa bringing the changing face of Ashton to us. Of course, Martin also is on the ball. Think we would need a tour guide without your helpful photography.
Many Thanks Dannyx6  :) :)

Last Tues I went to see Martin give a slide show for the Civic on pictures of buildings it was very interesting and it showed the lovely stone work on many buildings in Ashton hope to see more at another talk some time next year.

The next night went to see Gay at the Archives doing a talk on Sugar and Slaves about the Duckinfield Family from Dukinfield. Another well presented and interesting talk. Fudge

Here's a few more shots of the same bird

Believe it or not, my cat was sat next to me supervising my digging showing no interest in the bird at all, infact he keeps all the other cats off the garden and so safeguards the birds.
I love this digital technology, it so easy to use and we (Bill, Martin etc.) can show you what is happening in Ashton within hours of taking the photo and spread it all over the world, amazing.
