That's Scarborough, that is! My huge head was up at the castle, so I'm leaning out over North Bay.
Scarborough North Bay, by the looks of it.
Oooh my niece lives there!
Also, Jimmy Savile was buried there on a hilltop cemetery, his coffin tilted towards the sea, the epitaph on his elaborate gravestone reading 'It was good while it lasted'.

Nice one man. I don't know anything about weight lifting, I noticed each of your hands are holding the bar differently?
It's called alternate grip :D There's 3 grip styles for deadlift, double over hand which unless you're a strongman competitor is the weakest, then hook grip which involves trapping your thumb between bar and fingers but is really strong, and alternate, which is just as strong and stops the bar rolling out your grip, if it swings one way, because the other hand is gripping the opposite side it doesn't go anywhere :D

Me, at the Salem Witch Museum, Salem, Massachusetts in May 2018. We'd just driven up from Boston and spent the morning exploring here before continuing up the coast to Maine. A beautiful and picturesque part of the world.

Please please please let someone else post and move this on to another page! Currently it's opening up with Lord Lucan's groin in the centre of my screen... not that it isn't a very..ahem...errr....well, it's just...disturbing.

Well your eyes must just be being drawn to Lord Lucan's groin catseye .. my filthy mind just sees a wizard on that sign post with a witch kneeling at a suspicious looking groin level in front of him .. so we're both as bad as each other truth be told ..

:yellowc: And the referee's call ...

Nope ... Swifty has the dirtier mind.

The 'kneeling witch' is meant to be the witch's cat. It's not all that well rendered on the sign in Lord Lucan's photo, but it's a standard element in the Salem Witch Museum's logo. Here's a logo image from the museum's website ...

I really enjoyed visiting Salem. It smelled of salt air and boiling lobsters, and there were witches everywhere. :witch:
