    Thank you. It does indeed partly have to do with skin complexion I guess, but it mostly has to do with the comfort one feels whilst wearing the colours. If you are dubious, this will show IMO. I feel confident of what I wear and so I guess this makes it more natural? Of course the fundamentals need to be there (the colours need to compliment each other). Thanks non the less :)

    The weather is definitely becoming autumnal, we had rain earlier but now we have some lovely sunshine, quite balmy in fact. How much longer for, I don't know, but the shirt didn't go unnoticed when I was out getting a few groceries this morning. In art deco style, it must be unique, unless you've seen another?

    No, no, no.... they get better after that because it's a bigger deal to have survived another year. ;)

    Could've sworn I saw you this morning downing a cafecito at the Latin House here in downtown Miami.

    I've only been there once, well twice, but on the same visit. We spent a couple of days sightseeing before joining a cruise ship where we sailed down the Keys and then onto Mexico. We had another 48 hours enjoying Miami, after the ship returned, before we caught our flight home. My missus and I love Florida, it's amazing how many tourists never see anything of The State outside of Kissimmee.

    On our first visit we did the theme parks but we preferred the Church Street complex, Rosie O'Grady's and all that. On subsequent visits we found that it had closed down, probably lost out to the mouse. We've been to numerous places down the eastern shore. Absolutely loved St Augustine, Fort Lauderdale was fantastic, we did a river cruise there, Daytona was a disappointment, seemed rather run down and scruffy, but Miami was the best by far, always promised ourselves a two week break in the city.

    When Universal & Disney started advertising in Europe, they offered fly/drive deals. I can't remember when it was exactly, probably back around the 1970's. The British Press reports of attacks on tourists and the knock on effect that had, made The State change it's policy on hire car licence plates. Previously a hired car had a unique plate but because it was so obvious, those licence plates were scrapped. Curiously though when I collected our car I noticed that it had an Ohio licence plate. (I'm certainly showing my age.)

    If you ever choose to come back, let me know and I'll take you down to the Keys. It's the only place I know where you can watch a glorious, technicolor sunrise, spend the day fishing or drinking, or, rather, fishing and drinking, and then walk across the street and watch a glorious, technicolor sunset. And you're right about Orlando; thankfully, my son is now grown and I'm no longer subjected to Mousecatraz.
