I had some friends who, years ago, fashioned a kind of a cork board out of corks from their favorite wine bottles.  Somehow or another they wired it together and use it to hold various keys and key chains.   ;D

PD

A good idea. I wonder would I end up photographing what was hanging from the board.....

There are only three “animals” in my Belleek collection. This is the second of them.

Go to my postage-stamp sized backyard, look up, zoom, and get this photo. I think this is what is called a "lollipop pine."

I couldn't fine a tree called that, but I did find this.  Is it the same?

Quite possibly I've been misreading those little signs they put in parks, saying this tree is such-and-such...  ::)

Nice. It looks like some sort of pine to me, complete with cones :).
