The new January Squares challenge, hosted as ever by Becky, the Queen of Squares,  is all about ____light. That’s words ending in light. In this often dull month light of any kind is what we all need to lift our spirits as we wait impatiently for spring to begin. Click on the link to find out more.


This is one of the beautiful historic streetcars that move around San Francisco, this one I believe is from Milan. There are several and they are all gorgeous and I loved to ride on them when staying in SF as we always stayed in Fisherman’s Wharf area where many of these streetcars go to. I can’t believe that I have never published a post about these beauties, something I need to rectify.

Headlight (noun) = Headlamps are also often called headlights, but in the most precise usage, headlamp is the term for the device itself and headlight is the term for the beam of light produced and distributed by the device.

So here we have not only headlamps, but also a few headlights! (And even a couple of traffic-lights in the background)

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Nice one! I’d love to go there. 😍 Currently watching Rafa. We got Eurosport 2 on a month’s free trial and wouldn’t you know he’s on Eurosport 1 this morning. Mick is going to ask for his money back! 😊😊😊

    1. It is sooo annoying that we don’t see any of the Australian Open on terrestrial TV until next week and then only an hour a day! I had thought about Eurosport, but I only watch the tennis and it is on Amazon Prime this year for which I have a free contract (BUT NOT THE AUSSIE OPEN!!!!)

    2. Nice photo Jude. I just wanted to let you and Jo know I’m sitting here watching the Australian Open while catching up on all my WP blogs. Ash Barty just won her way into the quarter finals. Yay!

      1. Thanks for trawling through all my posts Carol – and the lovely comments. We get a pitiful hour of the tennis here 😦 unless I pay for a subscription to Eurosport as they have exclusive rights to the Australian Open.

        1. Lucky for us the tennis is on free to air. We even get Wimbledon on free TV but it is overnight. It was a pleasure to go back through all the posts I’ve missed while we’ve been away.

      2. She was playing well when I went out to join the walkers. Glorious here today. Tomorrow’s schedule will determine whether I make it to Portuguese class in the morning. 🤗🎾💕

    1. French open gets televised on ITV4 usually, but with Amazon Prime I will be able to watch other games this year!! 🙂

        1. I got a two year deal for the video bit with my new phone. The most expensive phone I have had but it does come with an excellent camera. Now what have you made me do? I guess I’ll have to look 🤔
