    They're very rare over here, maybe that's the reason I find them so nice!

    I mean, that's why we go to the trouble of posting images: so that nobody will be able to see them.

    I thought the mating season and all its courting rituals ended for you two sometime back in the spring.

    Jfuh would blame this change on global warming.

    No, as you can see, he's still sniffing around.
    He's constitutionally incapable of leaving me alone.

    I agree. I made this statement to NCFY when we were talking about it once in another thread.

    I agree that some of the architecture is impressive and a testament to human ability to rescue a lifeless structure from the jaws of a beautiful and living landscape. However, I find skyscrapers and cityscapes so assertive in their presence as to cause me to become numb and desensitized to their existence.

    Now a 2700 year old redwood tree that stands 94 meters tall and 17 meters in diameter? That's actually impressive.

    Re: What state is the coolest?

    I like historical buildings (which is probably why I love the French Quarter so much) but my city does not have anything very old in it. The city itself is just over 150 years old. My family lived here long before there was a city.
    This is probably one of the oldest buildings; I think this was here before there was a city.
    It's St. Mary's Cathedral, the church I went to when I was a kid.
    When I was little, the entire structure was so completely encrusted with pigeon poop that I thought it was made out of it.
    They've since cleaned it up and done some restoration.
    It's one of my favorite buildings, architecturally speaking. Looks like a castle.
    It's beautiful inside, too; It's got one of those pipe organs with pipes going all the way up to a big domed ceiling; it's got an upper balcony, which is where we always sat, and lots of nice stained glass.
