Wow! No pictures? Suspect I suppose you don't go in for that youthful smartphone crap.

I kind of like my phone to be a tool, nothing more or less. Certainly not a life planner or a member of the family.Evil or Very Mad

Mine looks like this:

I did break down and get an old-school flip phone a while back. I know it has a camera but I've never bothered to figure out how to take pictures with it. I suppose it's got a memory card in it somewhere that I could extract, insert into an adapter and plug into my Win 7 laptop for an insufferably long upload.... maybe.... Suspect

Some of my best photos are still on an old flip phone. Getting them off the thing is like trying to dig an embedded splinter out of your toe.

Cameras on modern phones are great! The quality is often much better than anything you get outside of SLR type setups.

Example from a concert last year.

Holidays and absences [3] - Page 27 Empty Hello Everyone!

Post by Hillbilly on Fri Jun 28, 2019 1:27 am

Yes, it's true. The Hillbilly and David H. got together for some wonderful conversation. It was too short, but David exceeded all expectations of kindness and intelligence. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and time spent.

I've missed everyone. Some family difficulties pulled me away from the forum a while ago, which took some time to resolve. I just never got back into it, but here I am.

I haven't checked up on any recent posts yet, but just wanted to say hello to everyone. It looks like the ever crabbit Petty is still around, as well as the gentle and intelligent halfwise. Figg too, she was always fun. I will try to check in once in awhile. I seem to remember offering to be a resource for any questions concerning Christianity, the offer still stands, as long as it's understood the answers given are my opinion only, and not necessarily reality.

Good to be back.

Good to have you back! Glad you two got some time together.

I always thought your views and responses on Christianity showed patience and thought, and I hope we repay you in kind.

My brother and I really enjoyed your visit as well! It's not often we get to talk shop with a fellow cranberry grower from so far away. pub

I'm curious, where, 2000 miles from Washington, do they grow cranberries?

I'm happy to try and satisfy your curiosity Forest!
Wisconsin is the biggest cranberry growing state, and  Madison is pretty close to 2000 mi from here.
Massachusetts (particularly Cape Cod) is the second largest cranberry state, and it's closer to 3000 mi. Bandon.
New Jersey is about the same. Oregon also grows cranberries near Bandon which is about 300 mi.
Those 5 states (including WA), plus British Columbia and Quebec, provide almost the entire world's supply of domestic cranberries. study Nod

Petty, how far away are you from Glasgow? I'm going there for a concert in November (the sixth), and I've got four weeks off, so I might as well spend some days over there . I was thinking I'd go to a hotel or a B&B up by Loch Lomond (basically just because The Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond is a great song and it's close to Glasgow Laughing ), but if you're nearby it would be cool to meet somewhere.

Thanks Petty!Thumbs Up
All our berries go to Ocean Spray.
It's a grower-owned cooperative, so we're all in it together. In good years we all share the profit, and in the poor years we share the pain, so if you buy one of our products (or don't) sooner or later it will trickle back to me.pub

{{{ Ringo - By train and boat less than two hours from Glasgow Central on a good day. Get train from Central to Gourock (end of the line to you cant miss it!) terminates at the ferry terminal, theres an express version takes about 40 mins and there's one stops at every station on route takes about twice as long, but either gets you there. Then get the Argyll Flyer boat from there to Dunoon, about a twenty minute or so crossing.

If your driving, about same amount of time, and I would recommend it if its an option as that way you'd drive down Loch Lomond side to get here,

Holidays and absences [3] - Page 27 Loch-lomond-beinn-dubh

over the Rest and Be Thankful mountain pass (though in November, check its open and not blocked!)

Holidays and absences [3] - Page 27 Visitscotland-26417706653-542732536

(if you are prepared to take a short twenty minute diversion here you can pop along to Inveraray for lunch, there's a castle, but more importantly the George Hotel, which does superb food and is like popping in to the Prancing Pony, well worth the extra time on the journey )

Holidays and absences [3] - Page 27 Cocktailbar-fire

along Loch Fyne

Holidays and absences [3] - Page 27 About-slide

through Stachur (where I recommend visiting the Smiddy, the medieval blacksmiths)

Holidays and absences [3] - Page 27 Strachur-450

Holidays and absences [3] - Page 27 35176-strachur-smiddy-strachur-01

and along the fifteen miles of Loch Eck (the mirror loch)

Holidays and absences [3] - Page 27 Fixedw-large-4x

and finally through my home village round the coast

Holidays and absences [3] - Page 27 Flat-750x-075-f-pad-750x1000-f8f8f8

and into Dunoon.

Its an impressive drive and packs a lot into a couple of hours travel time.

If you let me know a month or so ahead of when your coming I can put in for some holiday time at work. }}
