Thank you guys, they did turn out quite nice and I do feel they portray the pervading feeling of the summer quite well.  Smile

What a beautiful looking farm Bungo Nod And nice to see a farmer whose veg are not quite all suspicious, even if a hint of suspiciousness does creep into his prize winning Butternuts! Suspect

Obviously pics of one place doesnt mean the entire state is like it, but is Wisconsin mainly a farming state? I once saw a poster which I think was for some kind of whisky made there.... but other than that I havent heard of any cities or people or anything to give me an idea what the state is all about.

Edit - actually, isnt Milwaukee there? I know that.

The only other thing you need to know is it's a bastion of conservatism surrounding the tower of liberalism which is the capital/college town of Madison.  Which happens to have a totally kick-ass capital building.  Busses run directly from Madison to Minneapolis without stopping anywhere in between.

Apologies about this and the general quality of the pictures. I left my camera at home (alarm didnt go off so rushed in to get to work) so had to use my mobile. I filmed this clearly sideways and cant be arsed to turn it round. There is a little (like... really not actually a treat) treat in the middle... notice the name of the white boat...

I shall have a go later a guessing the ship categories, just wanted to say nice pics Lance, and loving the vid- given they are tall ships shooting it that way actually works rather well (I wont spoil the treat by mentioning it, but warmed the heart, nice to know. Would it have a HMS before it or something I wonder?)
