Hello, Jim!!

"my home for most of my 68 years of life!!" Say that again...., Jim.

O_o' You look so young and healthy, so is your mom. I thought you were like 53-55 only in the picture! Congratulations! I wish I would be as healthy as you are when I reach your age. (Not easy these days when food and environment are synthetic.)

Best wishes to the U.K. ~ 阿鵬 (w☺rap☺ng)

That lovely soaring dark bulk of the jetty thingumajig keeps making me think that this whole higgledypiggeldy sea front is an enormous Spanish galleon. It's a delightful trick to my eye which I can't help but look at over and over again!

Thanks, Jim!

Very best wishes, Sue

《阿鵬》B@ngk☺k---Greetings wo-ra-pong ;>) There is a theory, based on strong evidence, that people of my generation are much healthier than the general population because of the stringent diet, imposed on me and my peers, during the constraints of the second world war when strict rationing of food ensured that we ate the healthy option and in modest quantities!! So perhaps Mr Hitler's only positive legacy was to give me good health in my old age!! I still eat too much for my own good.

Laurentiu Mitu---I have to admit a certain love affair for the old place Lorenzo, I'm glad that you think it is a nice place too!!

Susan @llen...it takes only a little imagination to visualise this scene in the 18th century Sue!! Whitby was a port of great importance in those days. The sons of many of its families took to the sea at an early age. Merchant sea-men were the best available, and could be found on many commercial ships throughout the world!! Young lads were Press Ganged into the Royal Navy, many of them went on to be good Captains, hard, god fearing men, courageous and brave!! The town was geared up to provide the shipping industry with every need and ships chandlers were commonplace!! Rope and sail makers, splicers, carpenters, block and tackle makers, turners, blacksmiths, caulkers, hauliers, die makers,--the list is endless!! One can imagine the hustle and bustle and smell, as men and women toiled day and night to earn their living and well paid they were too> The tradition continues to this day but the shipping from here is no longer!! Whitby captains still command some of the finest ships afloat!

Kind regards to you all ;>)

Yes, but you change your nick name. What means your new name? I looked in wikipedia and found some infos.

Kindest regards Micha

Hi! >| Micha |<, ACRONYM has many definitions, which is the reason why I changed my nickname!! perhaps it reflects my ever changing moods!! The definition I like best, because it is a reflection on my present mood, is the one that states that an acronym is anAlphabetically Coded Reminder of Names You Misremember!! A contradiction in terms perhaps!!--- Now Micha, are you now any the wiser??? ;>)))
