Whilst scanning some old negatives I shot back in 1981, I came across this picture I took of the Wall Of Death attraction in the Lincolnshire seaside resort of Skegness. I was drawn immediately to the advertising slogan, "They Defy Gravity And Death" (Note to Son and Heir, I would quite like that carving on my digital gravestone) and to what also looks rather like a large dog kennel next to the front entrance of the attraction. I turned to the Web to see if I could find any further information about the the Skegness Wall of Death and discovered a fascinating history of it. Shortly after I took this photograph, it appears that the Wall left Skegness and for a time went into retirement before embarking on a world tour (Note To Self, there is a lesson for all of us here).
Blogging is a bit like coming out of retirement and going on a world tour. By clicking HERE, you can read an interview I did recently with a group called Silver Explorers in which I talk about blogging, technology and ageing.
