What! More Gromits!: Wye and Nelson: Come On You Robins.

Caught up with 'Wallace' at Cribbs Causeway, last Monday  ( 13/8.)





Here I was able to 'Bag ' two more Gromits.




 "Antique Rose "

Location: The Mall, Cribbs Causeway.












 "The Green Gromit "

Location: The Mall, Cribbs Causeway.



This super-fun idea, has of course a serious purpose. On September 3rd,  the eighty Gromits will be auctioned for charity, in aid of  Bristol's Children's Hospital.







A truly worth -while project.



GggggggggggggggGggggggG

Last Friday ( 16/8 ) D. and I made our way to a sunny Monmouth. Here, we found the local museum, which had some interesting exhibits of Admiral Horatio Nelson, including dress, accoutrements and a model of his ship, " HMS Victory. "




Lord Nelson visited Monmouth on 19th August 1802. To celebrate this, a garden was  commemorated to him.

The Museum, came as a bequest to Monmouth upon the death in 1923 of Lady Georgiana Llangattock; ( Source Wikipedia .)

Talking of which, would you believe this? Monmouth is the first Wikipedia Town.






"Monmouthpedia is the first Wikipedia project to embrace a whole town—specifically, the Welsh town of Monmouth (/ˈmɒnməθ/ mon-məth; Welsh: Trefynwy). The project aims to cover every singlenotable place, person, artefact, plant, animal and other things in Monmouth in as many languages as possible, but with a special focus on Welsh. This is a different scale of wiki-project. The project is jointly funded by Monmouthshire County Council and Wikimedia UK, Monmouthshire County Council intend to install free town wide Wi-Fi for the project. "

It  works by using  QR (quick response) codes; ( the two squares in the above photo  show QRs.}
By downloading the  app into smartphones, these codes take the viewer to the appropriate website, There are apparently 1000 such codes in Monmouth, Amazing, A taste of the future perhaps?

GgggggggggggG


As you probably realise, by now, I support two football teams; my local,   Cheltenham Town,  and Newcastle United of the Premier League.
I receive 'tweets'  from Cheltenham ( @CTFCOfficial ) and they have been asking supporters to write motivational messages; which would be pined up in the team's dressing room.

I have therefore made an effort to comply with the that request.  Here are my early efforts:

1 Start as you mean to go up!

2 The best view is always from the top.

3 What is the best habit in football? The winning habit. Become addicted.

 Are they working you may ask? Unfortunately with one point out of a possible nine, both Cheltenham Town and myself will have  towork a little harder.

GgggggggggggggggggggG

With another good sunny  week in prospect, let me leave you with this stunning view of the River Wye at Monmouth.

Cheerio,
Ck.
