    Oktoberfest Day 1 for me is the day I escaped after 3 weeks of working in India. Shortly after Midnight, minutes into the 1st day of Oktoberfest, I took my Day 1 contribution at Mumbai Airport. 30 days to go....

    @snegren and @gregja set the day 1 bar pretty high. I'm out of my league here but going to do it anyway as an incentive to take more photos.

    No worries, oneself is usually the worst/toughest judge of own photos

    What happened to today???? I've barely sat down all day. Our street had a series of break-ins over the last few nights so I've been busy fortifying our back garden fence etc, putting some new trellises uo, moving gate bolts where you can't reach them from the other side, replacing flimsy door locks etc. Just making life a bit more annoying for any hopeful burglars; annoying enough that they wouldn't really bother and move along instead...

    All good fun.

    Yep. We've got lots of scratchy thorny stuff over our side fences. Aparently they hate that sort of thing in case they scratch themselves and leave little traces of DNA everywhere.


    I personally favour the Sentry Guns as seen in the Aliens movie. My wife says they are probably illegal though.

    There are no leagues on Dyxum :-)

    Keep taking pics and you will surely get some helpful feedback.   Not from me right now though - I'm off to bed

    It's awful feeling when you are aware that burglars are around and effectively you cannot do much to protect yourself. Have I ever mentioned that one such smartasses broke into my son's flat? On 5th floor. Sounds impressive but as it turned out it was very easy to get on the balcony from the staircase. Anybody could do that. Funny thing was that at that time the flat was prepared for renovation - almost completely empty, so he broke in to ... find nothing to steal But the same night neighbors one floor above got robbed - by same burglar probably

    Good luck Mike - hopefully what you did will turn them off.
