    Default Canoeing Wallpaper

    Before anyone chastises me, this for my computer desktop not my living room! I found the thread regarding the front page picture and downloaded the picture, however I like to change my desktop wallpaper regularly. Does anyone else have any good wallpapers or know of a website where I can download them. Have not had much luck when searching.

    buy or borrow a digital camera and take your own, failing that google images has most things

    Howies used to have one for download, but I see tonight that they've altered their site around sometime recently. I dare say if you e-mailed them they'd send you a copy.

    It was of a fella about to launch an alloy boat out into a llyn, (as they are based in Wales), and if I recall correctly, it had a bit of text that may have run something like, 'don't ask for a pay rise, ask for a four day week', or similar. (Or I could be entirely wrong of course, and it said something else, but the general gist of it was 'time, not money').
