Quote from: Gurn Blanston on January 20, 2008, 07:24:16 AMOne of my favorite views, I've seen it a hundred times but finally had the wit to take a picture the other night. A storm had just passed through and was now to the east, and the sun was going down behind me. From my front porch:----------------Now playing: Lausanne CO / López-Cobos - Resphigi Ancient Airs Suite 3 pt 3

Quote from: Corey on January 21, 2008, 11:32:40 AMGurn, your land is my ideal!
Quote from: bhodges on January 21, 2008, 12:27:36 PMFantastic photo, Prof. Blanston! And the variety of wildlife only enhances it...although with all those deer, birds and everything else, nighttime must be quite a high-traffic zone around your house. --Bruce
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on January 21, 2008, 01:56:51 PMWell, here's a bit of wildlife. Not as nice a day, but I guess they thought so. ----------------Now playing: Les Concert de Nations / Jordi Savall - Bia 406 Op 55 Symphony #3 in Eb 1st mvmt - Allegro con brio

Quote from: Wurstwasser on January 19, 2008, 09:33:32 AMThe more the western world preaches abandonment in an ugly, lemming like political correctness way, the more I like this Sibelius picture. So sardonic, haha ... "stop whining about africa, just pass me a cigar",,,,

Quote from: Gurn Blanston on January 21, 2008, 04:09:52 PMYes indeed, I think they are lovely in winter. The foliage turns colors like in the north, but many of them don't lose most of their leaves until the new ones come on in spring. So in the sunshine, they stay colored all winter long.

Quote from: Gurn Blanston on January 21, 2008, 04:13:39 PMThe far eastern part of Texas. About 150 miles due north of Houston.
Quote from: 12tone. on January 21, 2008, 04:15:49 PMCool. Very nice down there. What you have there is very similar to our 'Prairie' provinces: Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Very beautiful flat lands.
Quote from: 12tone. on January 21, 2008, 04:31:46 PMCold in the summer? What are you talking about? It gets up to 25 Celsius...maybe 30 Which is what? 77 - 86 Fahrenheit. Wouldn't want any hotter than that
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on January 21, 2008, 04:35:59 PMI guess that's a nice overnight temp... (we do 35 - 37° here rather routinely). I spent a week traveling through western Montana, sleeping in a tent. It was late July, and at night it got down to almost freezing. And this wasn't in the mountains either. Maybe it was a fluke, but the memory lingers.
