The most bizarre pictures captured by google earth and streetview.
Amazing face: This massive image of Jesus was spotted while searching Google Maps in Hungary

Red alert: A blood red lake outside Iraq's Sadr city

Clouded judgement: A strange formation appears in the sky over a town in Italy

In plane sight: What this rather large aeroplane was doing among the trees in Brooklyn is anyone's guess

Funny bunny: Just a regular field in Piedmont, Italy... that just happens to contain a 200ft-long pink knitted rabbit

Tell it to the marines: This swastika-shaped building in California is actually a US navy base

They probably failed their driving test: Odd car parking in Westenbergstraat, Netherlands

Face the facts: This mountainous terrain in Alberta, Canada looks suspiciously like a Native American Indian... listening to an iPod

his baffling snap shows an apparently naked man climbing into the boot of a Mercedes in Mannheim, south-west Germany, while a dog sprawls on the driveway

A man with a horse head was caught by a Google Streetview car in Aberdeen. Horseboy, as he is now known, became an internet sensation after he was spotted by someone searching for an optician

Sea monster? This image which can be seen by entering coordinates Latitude 57°12'52.13"N, Longitude 4°34'14.16"W in Google Earth depicts a large object resembling a sea creature

Who are these robed figures hovering above a lake in Quarten, Switzerland?

Cruise missile or jet? This Google Earth image taken over Utah has been the discussion of much debate. Some say it's a missile, others say it's a jet with black wings

Is this a UFO in Hackettstown, New Jersey?

Could this be a crop circle in the Nevada desert?

A dead body in Middle Road, Worcester? No, just a little girl, Azura Beebeejaun, playing dead to trick her friends after she fell over. She later said she was 'quite chuffed' about being in the internet

A blue tree is spotted on Mount Annan in New South Wales, Australia

Is this the lost continent of Atlantis off the coast of Africa? Actually, it's far less exciting, the grid pattern is a digital artifact created by sonar boats collecting mapping data

This appears to be a real aeroplane hidden in someone's garden in Paraguay, South America

Losing a grip on reality? These giant pliers seemed to have a hold on this house in the West Midlands

Current Mood: cheerfulcheerful

How can we be in February already? It hardly seems like yesterday I was doing my christmas shopping. How time flies eh! 
So time for a little catch up on what's been going on this year. My new website finally went live on January 10th, after months of planning and putting it off, I purchased all the web hosting back in September, hoping to get it online within a few weeks but typically it took longer then I had anticipated and when I finally got round to getting everything sorted it was January. Anyway I'm really pleased with how it's turned out, much better then I expected it too, especially as I was using a new software that I hadn't used before. But enough said it's finally up and online so go check it out http://www.teriwarke.com 
New list of social networks: 
Also I've recently been working on a new writing project, more on that soon.

Mar. 16th, 2010 @ 06:51 pm The First Sign Of Spring Perhaps?
Current Mood: cheerfulcheerful
What a great week it's been so far. The weather finally seems to be improving, it feels like it's been a very very long and cold winter! So it's nice to at last have a bit of sunshine for a change. 
  A while back I bought a lomo fisheye camera, it's really cool as I've been getting quite fascinated with lomography and after looking at other camera's I decided to get a fisheye to experiment with. Even better as the camera is a shade of hot pink so really cute. So yesterday afternoon as the weather was good I decided to go out and experiment with my lomo camera. I finished off the film as it uses 35mm film, something I've not used for yonks! So today off I tottered to get the film developed. We had a snappy snaps down in the town but when I want to use it it's closed. So instead I went off too Boots. I'd have thought that the cost of developing film would have come down by now but nope it was £7.99 I'm sure it used to be cheaper actually. So after wandering around the shops and stopping off for a tea for an hour it was time to collect my film. When I got home I was rather pleased with the results. They look so cool the picture is circular and everythings curved. It looks fantastic. Yet it was only when I got home that I realised I'd forgotten to pick up another film to use. Oh well I'll remember it soon. I've been looking at some other lomo camera's the Holga seems quite cool but I love the quirkiness of the Diana mini. Now that will be a tough choice to make lol! 

So after getting my pics I decided that as it was quite a lovely day I'd spent some time out in the garden. The cats were lounging in the sun, there wasn't much to do around the garden although I do have a few plants to cut back a bit. Last year I bought a bag of daffodil bulbs as I love daffodils. Unfortunately I never got round to planting them in the autumn. So today I was wandering along the grass and on the edge by the fence are four bunches of daffodils popping up from the soil. God knows how they got there, I think the garden gnomes have been out there. They look like there in a bulb. Yet my bag is still unopened, so it's a bit of a mysery as to how I seem to have daffodils coming up when I didn't plant any? What's really funny is the little stretch there on is exactly where I was thinking of planting my bulbs. Funny how things work out isn't it?

Current Location: London, UK

Now I've just got a few hours left to decide what to do for earth hour. This will be the second time we've took part in this. It's quite a good idea really. It's all about climate change and raising awareness. Basicially what their asking people to do is to switch off their lights for one hour between 8:30pm and 9:30pm the aim is to get 1 billion people around the world to VOTE EARTH and switch off their lightswitches for just an hour. The results will then be sent to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009. We will be taking part, it doesn't take much effort all you have to do is switch off your lights for one hour. Instead try lighting your rooms with candlelight, it creates a cosy atmosphere and can be fun, especially if you use scented candles. So give it a go.

Mar. 28th, 2009 @ 04:38 pm Just When We Thought Spring Had Arrived...........
Current Mood: happyhappy
Just when we thought spring had finally arrived the weather drastically changes back to winter weather. The last two weeks we're brilliant. Last weekend I even managed to get out in the garden and cut back some of the bushes and plants that really needed to be trimmed. I managed to plant some new seeds which I've been keeping in the back of the cupboard since last summer. I was pleasantly surprised to find that quite alot of my plants have survived the harsh frosts of winter. As I scrapped a thick layer of moss out of one of my plant pots, hiding underneath it I found some green shoots of the seeds that I put in in the autumn. So I've come to the conclusion that letting moss grow over winter is infact a good idea!
I'm so glad I managed to get everything done in the garden as this week has been terrible. Yesterday we even had hail and judging by the bloody temperature outside I reckon we could be in for more snow.

Sox recently won a competition with 'pets at home' they asked people to send in cute pictures of their pets. So I sent one in of Sox back in February and last week I received an email from the head of marketing informing me that the picture had been picked and they would be sending Sox some vouchers as a reward. So this morning I went upto the pet store and thoroughly spoilt the little angel! I could easilly spend a fortune in that store and I have done before now. Also my new ultra cute kitty photo frame arrived today, it's really sweet it's chrome and says 'I love my cat' with a space to put 3 adorable pictures. So I'm having a good day.

I can't believe how bad this bloody weather is lately. It just seems like everyday is cloudy windy and rainy. But I guess that's the price you pay for living in England, London in particular. I can't wait until summer is here, if we get one that is. We didn't have much of a summer last year but by March it was warmer so I'm hoping that this constant cold weather means we're in for a good summer.

So on Friday I attended the 'Women In Business' forum seminar. What a good day it was. I managed to get there rather early as well. I don't think there was as many people there as there has been at previous events but it was still good. When I arrived I had to fill in the registration form and then you sit around and wait for it to start. It started just after 9:30am. Once again they had some really good speakers, I was quite surprised to find one of the speakers was a lady who owns a small local shop that I visit quite often so that was good. Then after a coffee break we had 2 workshops which were both interesting and quite informative. After that there was a networking buffet lunch. I met some really lovely people there. The women who attend are often so friendly and it is really good to talk to so many women who all have varied businesses. There did seem to be quite a few photographers there this time which was quite nice, there was rather alot of people from media businesses full stop now that I come to think of it. It was a good day though and I really enjoyed it.

Over the weekend I was watching Crufts. It's such a shame that it's not been on the tv this year. I've watched Crufts every year that I can remember so for it not to be broadcast this year was terrible. I know there's been a big controversial news story lately over some breeders standards and I agree it is unfair that some dogs are bred purely for one reason and often have alot of health benefits. But when you look at the dogs on Crufts, the dogs all look happy and healthy and as most of their owners are the ones who show them it's even better. I don't think any owner would show their animal if they thought it wouldn't enjoy it. I just think it's such a shame that a well loved dog show with happy healthy dogs has not been shown on the tv this year due to that recent story. At least you could watch it live online which was good as you got to see some events that they don't normally show on the TV. Let's just hope it is back on the TV for next years event.

Ok I have offcially had enough of my bloody Dr's surgery. Usually it's a really good place. They have 10 GP's, Practice nurses, and a midwife. Plus 2 different surgeries. Usually there isn't a problem at all. However last week I ran out of a prescription that I needed so I went to order a repeat prescription which typically had run out so the receptionist told me I needed to see a GP. I booked an appointment for the next day, went along. Saw the Doctor who was then extremely bloody rude saying "Look this is my day off and I don't appreciate people booking appointment for a prescription, it's a waste of time and a waste of an appointment, you can see how busy we are I've come in on my day off and to have an appointment taken up by someone needing a prescription is a complete waste of my time" How bloody rude was that? Was it my problem that I ran out and needed another prescription? The receptionist knew I only needed a prescription so why book me in to see her if it was 'supposed' to be her day off? She's the doctor who originally prescribed me this medication in the first place.

So today I had an appointment to see my usual doctor who I have to see regularly. I got up this morning got my appointment card to check the appointment time. It said 11:50am this morning. So with the traffic being so bad lately I left extra early and got there just before 11:30, went to the reception who then said they don't do appointments for 11:50 and when she checked it was for 11:10. How could they have written it down wrong on my bloody appointment card? They had literally just booked the appointment it was on their screen and I'm given a card with the wrong time on. How ridiculous? So now I'm booked in for Friday, if they've written it down right this time. Whatever next?

Current Mood: pissed offpissed off
It's been a funny few weeks. After all the snow a few weeks back I think things are starting to get back to normal. I can't believe how everything just stopped when it snowed. And it lasted for most of that week. Our street became one big ice rink and everyone who braved going outside was having quite a bit of trouble to walk along.
 A little hotel round here had a fantastic snowman built outside, a snowman and his cat, as I was passing I had to take a picture of it as it looked so good. Then one of our newspaper editors wanted to use the photo in the paper so that was a bit of exposure at least.

Just as everything starts running again round here one of the busiest roads is closed for bloody roadworks. A few years ago the road collapsed and as it's a main road up to the motorway all of the lorries and cars started using the smaller roads. So now they've completely closed the road so once again the traffic is a nightmare. You can't get anywhere on the main road as the traffic just doesn't move. The smaller 'quieter' streets are becoming congested as motorists are opting to use those instead of the main road. Last week I had to go across town, normally it only takes 20 minutes. I waited half an hour for a bus which then got stuck in traffic and I ended up being late for my appointment. Typical. So that's going on for the next 8 weeks so I guess if you need to get anywhere reasonably quickly it'll have to be a walking job. *lol* seriously it's quicker!!!!!

Current Mood: bouncybouncy
What a fantastic week it's been!!!!!! On Sunday night I was sitting at home, I had been watching the weather forecast and wondered if we would get any snow as well you know what it's normally like they say we get it and it never arrives. So late on Sunday evening I was quite surprised to look out of the window and see it snowing pretty heavilly. It was lovely and soon later the street was covered in a blanket of snow.
On Monday morning I was up early and when I looked out of my window I found I had woken up in Narnia. At least it looked like it anyway. So after watching a bit of BBC Breakfast I decided to get ready and take a little venture out in it. I can't believe how umprepared this country is for snow. They knew for days that this snow was coming and yet they still can't prepare for it. I wasn't so shocked that hardly any traisn were running as let's face it, it's any excuse for them isn't it? Leaf's on the line? Ice? Too bloody unreliable? Yep that's trains for us but when I head that the entire London bus netowrk had been suspended I was in complete shock. I've never known that happen before. I know the roads were a little dangerous but where were the gritting lorries? I remember a few years ago when I was at college we had heavy snow and yet the busses were running then. I remember my little old bus route the 386 which is a single decker had to attempt to get up one of the steepest hills in town and it kept slipping on the icy patches but eventually it got up the hill. What was even funnier was that not only did the trains and busses stop running but so did the paypoint system so if you needed to top something up well you couldn't.
So once I was ready I took a little walk down to my local supermarket, where I found there delivery lorry was parked in their front car park as it couldn't get to the back of the store. Luckilly I only needed to pick up a few things. Then once I was home decided to go for a little walk up to the park. It was lovely up there, children sledging on the slopes (the parents too) young children making snowmen it was a great atmosphere.
Later that afternoon I had to walk to a doctors appointment and I walked past a man making a snowman outside his house, he had made a snowman sitting on a bench with a snowcat next to him and a little suitcase. It looked fantastic. It's nice when someone puts in a bit of effort.
Ok so it's been a good week and I've just had some good news, one of the newspaper editors has written to me and is hoping to publish one of my photo's in either this weeks or next weeks local paper! Fantastic!

Ok time for some lovely winter wonderland photo's  Click HereCollapse )
