The Princess Bride

We have to reassure readers that the name of Dan’s company, Inigo, was not in fact taken from this film.  It makes for fun reading though (thanks to Dan’s colleague Colin for lending us the book).

The Princess Bride has joined the collection of books or articles that we read to each other from time to time.  The other main contender at the moment is a book about a man who chose to read his way through the entire Encyclopedia Britannica.

We’re up to ‘n’ now.  Perfect for long winter nights.  However, have to confess that The Princess Bride has taken the lead for now.

Christmas images 2005

Here’s some of the pictures we took last year with Dan’s snazzy camera.  They are of our Christmas tree decorations, and were intended to become the images on cards.  We felt a bit like studio photographers setting them up – it’s useful having plain white chairs as backdrops.  Thankfully all the subjects were well behaved, and have agreed to waive fees for appearing this year.
