Ford Capri 3000E V6

I. Want. This. Launched in March 1970, the Ford Capri 3000E was designed for the luxury market – with vinyl roof and a push-button radio, it also had an electrically heated rear screen and opening rear quarter windows.  Inside, the car boasted seats with cloth inserts, much more comfortable on a hot summers day.  Priced at £1,600, this car was one of Ford’s (UK) fastest ever road cars. Ford claimed the maximum speed was 122 mph. Production of the 3000 E ended in July 1972.

 

Horny

I heart the Rhinoceros.

Whiskers

Truly awesome facial furniture. I am a bit jealous.

Two Cats

Domino is fairly ambivalent about the other cat in the household. There are rarely disputes over territory.

Hoverfly on Passionflower

One of my favourite insects on one of my favourite flowers. Nuff said.

Goonhilly

Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station is a large telecommunications site located on Goonhilly Downs near Helston on the Lizard peninsula in Cornwall, England, UK. Owned by BT Group plc, it was at one time the largest satellite earth station in the world, with more than 25 communications dishes in use and over 60 in total. The site also links into undersea cable lines. (From Wikipedia)

This is the site’s first dish, built in 1962 to link with Telstar. It has been dubbed ‘Arthur’.

Hooper Swan

The whooper swan is a large white swan, bigger than a Bewick’s swan. It has a long thin neck, which it usually holds erect, and black legs. Its black bill has a large triangular patch of yellow on it. This one was chillin’ at Leeds Castle.

Approaching Storm

A storm, out to sea, heading towards the Cornish coast.

Vertical Limit

Grasshoppers are seriously cool and they crunch nicely when my cat eats them.
