    guyrunningaround, I had never heard of this. Looks like a fun place to explore, very ornate inside. You are near Liverpool... I'm trying to teach my granddaughter who the Beatles are/were. Right now we are learning "I want to hold your hand"...

    Yes, there are times it can be quite noisy but its not something that happens constantly. It sort of makes me feel safe knowing they are protecting us.

    hiraeth, I was born in Portland and spent 30 years of my life in various parts of Oregon. My husband and I are kind of sorry we ever left. I did a painting of Multnomah Falls when I was first learning to paint back in the 70s. I live in Calfornia and I am close to Sequoia and Kings Canyon Nation Parks. I've traveled with my husband on his job and have spent a few months in many different states. We both loved to travel and are kind of sorry he retired when he did.

    Yes it does, and of course some people speak Welsh as well. We have lived in Wales since 1990, and have no wish to live in any other part of the UK.

    Linda, I have lived in the Portland area on and off for about 26 years... the traffic can become a nightmare on both i-5 and 205 so I'm relieved I am retired and no longer have to commute in it. It's nice that you have traveled some... it's the only way to appreciate the our beautiful country.
