The sender writes:
My husband Dick took the photo of London Bridge when we were on holiday in Australia. Lots of people walked out to the far side. Not for me - too much water and too high on the "bridge" and too narrow. Shortly after we were there the 'bridge' part collapsed stranding people on the far side. They had to be rescued by helicopter. The noise when the rock gave way was horrendous, luckily no one was on the bridge when it went.

A group of pannists who play together is called a steel band. Annually at Carnival time, there is a steel band competition called Panorama.
