Sorry, I've been away on vacation just getting back in the swing of things. Grant, it looks like you're having a great time.

Dave is right. Traverse is beautiful! Torch Lake has been tagged as one of the world's most beautiful mostly because of its clarity. The Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes were left by the glaciers. Very nice!

Not really Grant. The Traverse City area is quite a beautiful area of Michigan, with vineyards and cherry orchards surrounding a resort town with lots of nice places to stay right on the water. I'll be up near that area next weekend in fact to kayak a river that's been declared a national scenic river by the federal government.

Dave, he was but the Fremch king of the time was a fan of Leonardo so invited him to live out his days in Amboise. This afternoon we arrived in the astounding city of London and I have returned from a walk where I watch a car that had overstayed its time in a parking spot being lifted on to the back of a truck. This scene attracted a few onlookers, one of whom engaged me in conversation. The man's name is Stan and it turned out he is from Michigan! Travers City (?). He told me it is the most beautiful spot in the world! Is he a victim of hyperbole?
 
dave 2015-08-03 05:14:36
Very cool. Wasn't he Italian?
 
grant228 2015-07-31 14:19:02
Dave, that is one of many exhibits showing some of Leonardo's ideas. It is a working model of his idea for a helicopter. The gardens are dotted with water pumps, gliders, pulleys, portable bridges, tanks and examples of his art. Kids are encouraged to experiment with these working models. The whole concept is cleverly executed.

Grant, very cool. What's all the equipment in the front yard?
 
grant228 2015-07-30 13:50:36
My apologies for the woeful spelling of chateaux!

Dave, Have just spent two enjoyable days in Amboise in the Loire Valley. My wife and I are doing a walking tour through the valley which is replete with marvellous chatueax, wine and cheese. We've 20 km of walking tomorrow as we trek to Vouvray. The attached photo is of the chatueax where Leonardo da Vinci spent his final three years. A great place to learn even more about this amazing man.
 
 
dave 2015-07-27 09:04:33
Grant, very cool. Hope you're enjoying France
 
grant228 2015-07-25 16:08:46
G'day, Dave or should I say Bonsoir as it's 10pm on a Saturday evening in Paris. The sun is just about to go down (which I find amazing) and I'm also surprised to know you Michiganites are six hours behind France. I thought you'd be closer. My body clock is telling me I should be just getting out of bed rather than getting into bed! Off to the Eiffel Tower tomorrow and the finish of the Tour de France down the Champs Elysees.

I sneeze when I walk out of a building into the sun
 
bill 2015-07-23 08:05:30
It always makes me sneeze when I look into the sun.
 
grant228 2015-07-23 01:33:16
Well, Bill, try it. Squint as if you're looking into bright sunlight then speak and I think you'll find your usual Michigan timbre is different. More nasal and from the front of your mouth?
 
bill 2015-07-22 09:03:47
That's an interesting theory, Grant. Do you buy into it?
 
grant228 2015-07-18 19:45:00
Bill, that is warming up! If you're not careful you might start sounding like an Aussie also! I've read where some linguistics experts feel the Australian accent is the result of the hot sun and its glare. They claim the sun makes us squint more than others making us speak they way we do with an emphasis on the nasal sounds. Real trivia on our trivia site!
 
bill 2015-07-17 22:13:12
Thanks Grant. My guess is that this very unusual weather indeed. It's not making the world news so it's probably not that bad yet! :-)

BTW, were having record heat here in SE Michigan - about 90 today and 95 (35C) tomorrow. Like SE Australia!
 
grant228 2015-07-17 08:08:10
Bill, to show you how widespread this cold spell is, below is a shot from Queensland, much of which is in the tropics! It is a big state though, two and a half times the size of Texas!
 
 
grant228 2015-07-14 05:08:55
Bill, it's a town called Orange, about 4 hours inland and south west from my town. It's always cold there. I visited it once and vowed never to return! We had snow about two hours from here last week, so hopefully global warming is not advanced as some say. I realize such conditions would be regarded as a mild day in your parts!
 
bill 2015-07-13 22:04:45
Say what?! Wow! Where is that in Australia, Grant? In your area?
 
grant228 2015-07-13 06:41:45
Just to show you it sometimes gets cold down under. Winter has hit with a vengeance!
 
 
grant228 2015-07-12 05:44:39
I know it's a little late, Bill but congratulations to your girls. The final showed attacking play is possible, even in a final. I'm sure our girls will be back to try to wrest the trophy from you in four years.
 
bill 2015-07-06 23:23:12
Congrats to the USA Women's Soccer team for winning the World Cup!
 
 
bill 2015-07-06 23:20:28
Thanks Grant! We had fun!
 
dave 2015-07-06 22:51:53
Zen I'll see if I can look you up
 
grant228 2015-07-04 17:36:56
And your republican Australian friends are very jealous! Long may the spirit of independence flourish! Hope the day goes well.
 
bill 2015-07-03 10:13:12
Happy 4th of July to all! Well, I guess our British friends hate this holiday, eh?!...
 
 
bill 2015-07-03 10:11:41
Zen, this sounds like fun. Just sent you a FB friend request. Grant, are you on FB?
 
zendyk 2015-07-03 08:24:54
Actually, it would be easier for you to look me up. I'm under Melissa Mathis, my maiden name.
 
zendyk 2015-07-03 08:22:39
Dave, do you mean are we friends on FB? No. I will try to look you up there.
 
dave 2015-07-01 09:17:57
DO I have you on facebook Zen?
