The Great Dorset Steam Fair 2008

This year was the 40th anniversary of the Great Dorset Steam Fair and it was the first time that we had to queue for more than 5 minutes.

While queueing (I had to look this word up, and this is really how you spell it according to Wikipedia), these planes flew over. I believe the little planes are Spitfires, but I have no idea what the big plane is. Anybody got any idea?

Our location on the campsite was a lot closer to the fair than last year.

The campsite in the other direction with the carpark for day-visitors on the left. The campsite continues to the right about 20 times the size you can see on the picture.

We met up with our friend Richard Cole, who restores vintage tractors to it's original condition. Here he is with one of his show models (the tractor, not Clarkie). He deals in Fordson Tractors Parts & Spares Restoration & Sales and he can be found here: Cotswold Vintage Tractors.

Oh Sheri, I am with you. Fall was the worst for me, too, because it was the death of semumr and the transition into the worst thing imaginable winter. Fall was the gateway to all things horrible for me. I'm trying to enjoy it more this year, though. I'm also in Michigan so I'm impressed with the previous commenter. I am always freezing cold so I spend semumr afternoons sitting outside in full sun over radiating cement. (Not to get a tan, just to get warm.) The best part of fall is here, though Michigan State football!

This seems like an ideal plug-in at the perfect time, but how does one add in new weigdts of their own to the dashboard. WordPress says its easy, but so far, we have not been lucky enough to stumble upon the relevant documentation, and it seemed only obvious that this plug-in would allow it.Although we seem to be able to edit the existing dashboard by removing or moving weigdts around, it does not seem to allow you to add new weigdts or actually edit the existing weigdts (only remove or move them).Will these features be added soon, could you point us in the right direction if we were wanting to add in the features ourselves ?
