Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

So tired...

...I just want to sunggle up against his big chest in his strong arms

Luscious Lips

Vincent has the most kissable lips I have ever seen. I just need one chance to try them out. Anywhere (on the planet, on me...)

Make me feel better, Dr D.

Oh, yes, that is better. Thank you.

Stormy Weather

At last Blogger has let me load up my pictures for this post, with Vincent looking like thunder. And like Thor, the god of thunder. Whereas VIncent himself actually IS a god, he doesn't just look like one.

After a very hot day, we had an amazingly violent summer storm, which has relieved the heat NOT AT ALL.

Some Old Ruins

Rievaulx Abbey in Yorkshire was a victim of Henry VIII's wholesale destruction of monsteries. The ruin has remained for nearly 400 years because it was too far away from the nearest town to be easy to rob out. Only the lead from the roofs went.

Eynsford Castle is in Kent, near Lullingstone Roman Villa. It's a free, open site with lovely ruined walls to clamber over.

Whitby Abbey in Yorkshire was a very important monastery in the 7th and 8th centuries when the Roman Catholic Church was involved in internal debate between different factions. If Whitby had won the case, monks and priests would have been able to continue to marry, as they had up to that time.

Old Sarum in Wiltshire was a fortified town with a Norman cathedral. In about 1200 the decision was made to move the town to a site in the water meadows nearby, and the town of Salisbury with its beautiful Gothic cathedral was purpose built from scratch to a plan. Stonehenge is nearby.

Lullingstone Roman Villa in Kent is a stunning place, complete with mosaics, hypercaust and bath house. Years ago a teacher friend took some schoolboys there, and was horrified to see one pick up a 2000-year-old Roman sandal and snap in in half.

Linlithgow Castle is between Edinburgh and Glasgow in Scotland. It was the childhood home of Mary Queen of Scots. It used to be a great place to explore, but I believe they've made it "safe" now.

Fountains Abbey in Yorkshire is another victim of the Dissolution of the Monasteries, and like Rievaulx it was too remote for the heavy stone to be removed for other building work.

Rochester Castle, with the Cathedral. The castle is Norman (11th century) . It was held by rebels against William II in support of his uncle Bishop Odo (no, not Deep Space 9). The castle was besieged in the 13th century by King John, and probably fell into ruin as a result of an assault by one of his siege engines.

Update on George

I went to see George on Friday. He has lost a lot of weight compared to this photo, and he has problems getting comfortable. But he has a very positive attitude. With his typical humour, when told by the doctors that he had to have radiotherapy, he said, "I won't lose my hair, will I?"

Not The Pirates of The Caribbean Premiere

Some foolish people (mostly young girls who should have been in school) started queuing outside the cinema 24 hours before the premiere so that they could get a good view of Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom. There was a heatwave warning out, so standing around in a sun-drenched square all day doesn't sound like a good idea. Some were treated for dehydration and heat exhaustion. Where were their brains? WHERE WERE THEIR PARENTS?

Oh, and I just thought I'd rather have pictures of Vincent than of Depp or Bloom.

Hotter Still

Nearly melted trying to put together a garden bench. Decided to get hot for a better reason.

Never get tired of this one.
