Free Twitter Designer: Design Your Own Twitter Background


If you’re not happy with your twitter background you can make your own. An easy way to do this is to use freetwitterdesigner.com and upload your own photos, make your own text, etc. It is quite easy to use, but I would suggest you have your twitter profile open in another tab/window when you upload your background as you may need to tweak the background a bit to get looking just right – so don’t delete your work until such time as you are happy with the background as it appears on your profile.

This photo shows the entrance to the ‘Chambers of the Black Hand’ opal mine and sculpture chambers at Lightning Ridge in New South Wales, Australia. Tomorrow I’ll start to post some photos of the sculptures.

Amigo’s Castle – Lightning Ridge


100_2182

There are quite a number of strange sights at Lightning Ridge in New South Wales, Australia. The photo at left is one of them. The building is known as ‘Amigo’s Castle,’ which is a private home with construction begun back in 1981.

The building was inspired by Roman ruins located near Amigo’s birthplace in his homeland – Italy. It has all the trappings including, dungeons and tunnels – that form part of the owner’s opal mine.

Amigo’s Castle can be seen while taking the self-drive ‘Red Car Door Tour’ in Lightning Ridge (visit the Visitor’s Centre in Lightning Ridge for a brochure).
