The circular-shaped church at the village of Mosta in Malta has an interesting history. Its design was/is based on the Pantheon in Rome, and the church was built over an existing older parish church which was later demolished. The Church is also referred to as The Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady or The Rotunda of Mosta or The Mosta Dome.
The most famous incident in the church’s history, a miracle according to the Maltese, happened on 09 April 1942. Read More

Thanks to Amy for this week’s framing challenge.
MB has taken this shot at many different times of the year. It’s the tree that grows in the perimeter of the Grange Stone Circle back in MB’s HX Irish homeland. This shot was taken in December 2018.

Do something a little mad!
This kid is oblivious to the adults behind him, who are just about to enter St Pauls Cathedral in Mdina, Malta, for a wedding ceremony. MB snapped the carefree kid during his May 2019 trip.

Thanks to Anne Christine for this week’s Dreamy challenge.
Who could not say that the Blue Danube is not a dreamy piece of music? Nobody!
If you happened to be in the Vrijthof Square in Maastricht last week with MB at the André Rieu concert, you just might have had a dreamy waltz in MB’s arms!
Warning – As ever, MBs vids are a tad ropey! So, on clicking onto MBs Blue Danube vid, click quickly to full screen for best viewing experience.
Dreamy or what?!
