End of Winter...

Spring breeze gently blow
Colourful blooms over the edge
The crane dance happily

From a Distance :: Bette Midler

From a distance the world looks blue and green,
and the snow-capped mountains white.
From a distance the ocean meets the stream,
and the eagle takes to flight.

From a distance, there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
It's the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace,
it's the voice of every man.

From a distance we all have enough,
and no one is in need.
And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease,
no hungry mouths to feed.

From a distance we are instruments,
marching in a common band.
Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace.
They're the songs of every man.
God is watching us. God is watching us.
God is watching us from a distance.

From a distance you look like my friend,
even though we are at war.
From a distance I just cannot comprehend,
what all this fighting is for.

From a distance there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
And it's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves,
it's the heart of every man.

It's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves.
This is the song of every man.
And God is watching us, God is watching us,
God is watching us from a distance.
Oh, God is watching us, God is watching.
God is watching us from a distance.

Discovery Museum

A rich dispay of Newcastle long history...from roman era to modern Newcastle...a great transformation of the city.

The Turbinia...built on the Tyne in 1894 by Charles Parsons. She changed the face of history and was the first ship to be powered by steam turbines...and in 1897 she became the fastest steam vassel in the world. Newcastle has a long history in ship building. It was once main industry in Newcastle and one of the biggest in England until 1984...and now it just a part of Newcastle history. Here is the real vassel displayed in the meseum.
