For some time I've been sick and tired of replacing batteries on our door bell. You put new ones in and the thing works for a few weeks only to stop again. So now I went hunting for an old-fashioned manual door bell.
I found a solid brass bell which I've now installed at the front door. See how that goes. Oh and I have super-glued all the bolts and screws.
I like it. I just hope we can hear it everywhere in the house.
Following from the last blog post, the U3A Camera Club then went next door to Underwood Park and visited the Chung Tian Buddhist Temple. A fabulous venue to let a bunch of amateur photographers lose. After snapping the numerous statues in the grounds, Helen, a member of the Temple showed us trough the various inside rooms and eplained the philosophy of buddism to us. Buddhism is not a religion, it is a way of life and members live by the code Buddah (the teacher) teaches.

I went on an outing today with the University of the 3rd Age (Redlands) camera club. First we met at the Underwood Park for a walk around, then we had morning tea and afterwards visited the Buddhist Temple next door.
