Halton, Lancs.

Another Thursday walk with Pete. For some who may be concerned, in a recent post I referred to "my late friend Pete" -  that was not Pete of Thursday walks fame ! It was another friend who I climbed with for a number of years from 1991 who sadly is no longer with us.

At last we have some warm weather and I walked in shorts for the first time this year - what pleasure that was.

The new Panasonic TZ60 is performing well. Although the sensor is supposed to be the same as the old TZ40 I am finding that I am making many fewer adjustment to lighting etc, in Photoshop.

Here are a few photos.

I Googled a translation which left me none the wiser:

"So as to benefit, not for themselves, but for all the President of the..."

The date is 1978

maybe something improving like

not only for the self, but for all (people)
protect and make prosper (i.e. do good)

- the tense is that curious Latin one more or less commanding an action - i.e. indicating 'do this' (hoc age , perhaps !)

How can you remember Latinn from over 50 yrs ago? Sounds like a much better translation than the website I found.

I like the results from your new camera. Your comments are timely, I'm looking to replace my Lumix DMC-SZ3 with something better, I think I may have found it.
You seem happy with it, would you recommend that I raid the piggy bank?
Argos & John Lewis are selling them for around £199.
Any further thoughts?
