No wocca!

According to the Urban Dictionary this is the slang for ‘No worries’ or ‘No problem’. However, according to same dictionary, ‘wocca, wocca, wocca’ means the same as ‘yada, yada, yada’ which means ‘Not interested’.
Wocca was also the name of the Saxon chieftain who owned much of the land in and around Wokingham and Wokefield in Berkshire and Woking in Surrey.
So now we have wocca’d all that out let’s go on to the next picture. This is a numbered and signed print by William Thomas of Wokingham Town Hall. Here is a photo of the town hall:

A pretty good likeness. The artist is, I think, the same William Thomas that produced this illustrated map of the River Thames:

A copy of this hangs in my own hallway!
His website seems to be down at the moment but you can see this map and read a bit about him by going to: http://www.riverthamespath.co.uk/the_artist/
