Tiger Eye

A little bit of the Australian outback. Formed some millions of years ago in some volcanic upheaval, prospected as a rough lump of rock and polished by "Helen" and partner who knew it's inward beauty, acquired by "Secret Hill", boxed and wrapped in coloured paper, flown with her to UK and now resting on the bedside table of "Avus" in the Kentish countryside.

I'm so glad you like your little piece of Western Australian Tiger Eye. It really is incredible what is underneath our feet.

Hi, This IS beautiful. Have you seen The Gods Must be Crazy? I want to see High Plains Drifter and The Wicker Man on your recommendation, because HH and I loved Straight Story and Whale Rider.

Vita - thanks for visiting - you will find High Plains Drifter and The Wicker Man very different from Straight Story and Whale Rider.

Both are towards the "horror" end of the scale with some quirky endings. I see that there is a new "Wicker Man" just out, which I have not yet seen and should not be confused with the original (Christopher Lee) version.

I saw The World's Fastest Indian and thought it was right out of the top drawer. Hmmm, it looks like the early 1970's movies Wicker Man and High Plains Drifter are pretty good, maybe I should try to get them for October viewing.
