Two more goals achieved!

Two more goals achieved! Unfortunately neither is from the list of 100 though!

The first one was achieved while in Valencia. Graham’s daughter Maria had a book of “Magic Eye” pictures, or “Ojo Magico” as it was called in Spanish. These were all the rage about ten years ago, and at the time I could never see the 3D pictures that you were supposed to be able to see in them. I was always very frustrated by them.

Anyway, in Valencia, with some very patient training from Maria, Paula managed to see a couple of the pictures, and took great pleasure in teasing me because I still couldn’t! So I persevered, and one evening, aided, I suspect, by the wine I had drunk, I cracked it. After seeing the first picture, which was of an elephant, others followed with much more ease.

I was so pleased. It was a success at least ten years in the making!

The second achievement, just made this afternoon, was walking along the street where one of my favourite music videos was made. Have a look at the video for “Bittersweet Symphony” by The Verve.

This was filmed on Hoxton Street in London, and as I was in the city this morning, I took the underground to Old Street station, and had a wander down the street. The video was filmed over 11 years ago, and the street has changed a bit. The roadworks has obviously gone, and there is a new pedestrian crossing at the junction, but the Golden Fried Chicken shop seen at the start of the video looks exactly the same!
