photoblog image Etal

Etal

Etal village is one of a pair of villages, Ford and Etal, just inland from the Northumbrian coast.  Both villages have a long history and details can be found at http://www.berwick.org.uk/ford/ford.htm

A recent addition to Etal is the minature railway that links the village to Heatherslaw Mill about a couple of miles up stream, and you will see this railway tomorrow if you look in.

This is the last but one collage from me for some time, one more tomorrow, I now have several smaller sets of images to post over the next few weeks, plus some individuals here and there.

On Tuesday I took delivery of a genuine copy of CS3 from http://www.trustsoftwareonline.com:80/  . It only cost £95 in British money, they are currently doing CS4 for £108 and CS4 Extended for £127, and of course similar values in other currencies. These are offers for September only I think but worth following up if you fancy any of that software.

Each house has it's own personality, Brian, doesn't it!

Congratulations on your CS3! I'm sure I utilize only the tip of the iceberg, but it's better than nothing. smile
Brian Walbey: It was so quiet and peaceful Ginnie, and a very nice little English tearoom to boot.
Some very different building styles, Brian. I never really associated thatch with properties in the frozen north. The small house top right seems to be more typical. I'll follow your link when I can get some more time.

How do you know the software is genuine, Brian? Does it come with a licence, etc? I once bought a copy of Photoshop 6 from ebay (before they stopped it) for £5.99 and I was amazed to find it was only a copy!!

Good luck with the learning curve!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. I am certain the CS3 is genuine, it had a full serial number which activated alright and was in full Microsoft packaging. If it is a fake it is a good one. I already had PS7 so do know a bit about Photoshop, now to learn more.

Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Zed.
Love the name of this village Brian, it sounds latin.
Brian Walbey: I hadn't thought of that Chad, it is a lovely little place.
What a Beautiful place this is?
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely place martin, and so peaceful.

Thatarchitecture is so distinctive Brian: the buildings are almost crouching
Brian Walbey: I reckon you would love an hour or two at Etal Chris, and the tearoom is excellent, very English.

Love the thatched roofs
Brian Walbey: I didn't expect to see a thatched roof but a lot of the cottages are quite old.

Oh, I know this place well - I used to live just over the border in Coldstream, and my friend lives in Etal and another teaches in Ford primary school. There used to be a wonderful pedestrian swing bridge over the river, sadly now gone. This brings back wonderful memories of happy times spent here when my children were very small. BTW those are extremely good prices for Photoshop - anyone who hasn't got a copy should take up this offer.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Glad to have brought back some nice memories for you Ingrid. In the loo at the back of the tearoom is an old newspaper article in a frame saying how many different tradesmen and associated buildings there used to be in the village. It must have been a very busy place a couple of centuries ago. As for my CS3, a bit of a change from my PS7 and Elements I would think.
A wonderful presentation of these lovely houses Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
Delightful Collage. The prices for CS3 and 4 sound excellent. Is it download or on disk?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. The CS3 came fully boxed with another CD of tutorials and a genuine serial number for registration. I can only assume it, and all the other software is the real article, it was actually shipped to me from China, as far as I am concerned, and another chap in my club who put me on to it, it will do us.
Very picturesque Brian. The Black Bull looks very inviting. Nice collage.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet. Sadly the Black Bull was closed it being mid-afternoon.
Charming village properties Brian...and nicely presented.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ron.
excellent
these are all great images.
montage is perfect
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Rob.
lovely smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much for your comment, this place was just so quiet.
Very very nice.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, it was such a quite peaceful village with an excellent tea room and garden to sit in.
About the software on this site:
I'm pretty sure it's not a genuine copy. A reduction of 20 or 30% makes sense, but this looks like 70% or more, so too beautiful to be true.
Also the site doesn't work anymore.

Perhaps, they stole a container of retail boxes, in that case it could be genuine which would explain the succeeded activation procedure.
Brian Walbey: I don't know what the background is with this company Paul but as far as I am concerned I bought in good faith. The site is working this morning by the way.
