So lets start off with the competition, just one more day of mentioning the result. I guess I ought to start by telling just how many tunes you were trying to guess. At the time of the competition the number of tunes on my ipod was, 13,729 which means that Kelly was closest by 663 songs! The other two were close but not close enough. Prizes love and all sorts will shortly be on the way to her.....I just know that she will make a great best friend.
I have to say, after the announcement of the winner anything else this week will seem unimportant! I know that many of you will be disappointed, which is understandable. Just be patient I may do a special Christmas competition..not sure but at least I am offering some hope.

Today has been a funny day weather wise, well not funny but one of those typical autumnal days where you pretty much get the full gambit of weather in 30 minutes. A blustery wind, mixed up with sharp showers and sunny periods. A great day if you can dodge the showers which for once I did.

Today's image is yet another from my wander around the Motel Xenia...derelict and beautiful. I make no apologies...I love the place and feel good documenting it before it disappears. Designed by the architect Aris Konstandinidis (1913-1993). He worked for E.O.T (Greek Tourism Board) between 1957-1967. Today the motel just seems to sit and decay beautifully. I was back there at Easter to try and capture more of it's spirit before it is levelled!. I have even managed to find a decent aerial view of the place. So here is a map of the Motel Xenia. The cross shaped building is the centre of the complex.
