Thank you For All Your Contributions & Feedback

Buon Giorno, Good Morning,

Kylie: Thanks for your update on Australia ...

Steve & Hoot: Now, does Hoot look like, he would of named his daughter, Cindy Lou or Cindy Mae or Daisy Mae ? Rebecca, far more fitting as it is a classic historical name ... ( No Offense, to anyone named Cindi Mae, or Cindi Lou or Daisy Mae ... )

I think many actors and actresses, for example, Bruce Willis & Demi Moore, name their children ridiculously; Rumor & Scout are two of their 3 daughters names ... Rumor ! Imagine ?

There are others of course as well who tagged their children with some oddities for call names ...

Any way, have a lovely Labor Day and enjoy the official worldwide last weekend of Summer Vacation and it then, signifies, back to work and/or back to school to hit the books ...

All my best,
Margi.

The Aquarium & Busch Gardens: Lovely & Interesting

Buon Giorno, Good Morning,


Thanks for your contributions and I love Aquariums and Botanical Gardens ... Great way to spend a morning before lunch time ...

Valencia City on Spain´s East Coast of Levante, on the Mediterranean has one of the world´s largest Aquariums and it is visually incredibly enchanting ... Highly suggest if in Spain ...

The Botanical Gardens of Zürich, Switzerland are absolutely impeccably beautiful ... Madrid´s are quite lovely too ... I have not been over to Amsterdam for a couple of years, however, their Tulips are just awesome too ...

Autumn and its colors: along the Blue Ridge from Virginia to Tennessee & the Smokey Mts. ( Asheville ) and Vermont, nature´s colors never cease to stop impressing me ... Incredible, the world of the natural ...

From my point of view: Architecturally and Monumentally I love Europe, however, the continents of North America and South America, nature is the monument ... The mighty mountain chains of the Andes and Rockies, the Grand Canyon, the eastern seaboard Atlantic crashing against the rocky cliffs, and the Coastal highway drive from Los Angeles all the way north to Washington State ... this is breathtaking.

We have a beautiful world, if man would only learn to take more care of it, instead of dropping petrol in the seas, and littering their krap plastic bags all over ...

Ciao.
Have nice August.
Margi

The only thing I plan that far in advance is my work schedule usually. This year, I think I'm working Labor Day Monday. It's not a particularly special weekend for us, except for the football rivalry thing.

We have no hard and fast plans for the weekend. We'll probably just spend it at home same as always.
If y'all go and get there early enough, you might be able to get a table on the outside at Waterman's . 'Course, that will likely run into money too.
If y'all do go, maybe we will see y'all there. I will be the one wearing sunglasses.
