    That is awesome.
    I really miss living in the country. The views are just awesome, especially when un-littered with houses.

    Ya know what's really sad? The top pic of yours was what it looked like here yesterday, nice, warm, t-shirt weather.
    Then this morning, I woke up to find the second pic.
    Messed up weather here in spring.

    Yeah, reminds me of the weather in upstate NY. One day it was 65F, the next day we had 2 feet of snow. A few years ago, they reported a drop of temperature of 100 degrees (F) in 24 hours somewhere in South Dakota. That is hard to believe but it was a reputable newspaper.
    In Europe, we do not have those violent changes. It slowly gets colder in the fall and slowly gets warmer in the spring. But from day to day, it does not vary a lot.

    Yeah, where I live, this is pretty normal. Our spring is usually a mess, it can be hot one day, then freezing the next.
    20 years ago, on March 13th, it was 85 degrees F for about 3 days(normally in the 40's and 50's.). Numerous tornado warnings, and our farm was all but destroyed. Less than a week later, it was back down to freezing at night.

    And, once again, snow has pretty much melted. Hopefully for the last time this year.

    This is a nice picture. But how bad could it be near you?

    Pics showing one of my favorite places in our hometown Leipzig, the African restaurant in Zoo. Leipzig Zoo is almost in the middle of the city, big and very well kept. We both love the zoo, we buy year passes every year and go there quite often. It's a ten minute walk from our house door.

    My favorite Saturday / Sunday activity in the summertime is to walk there with a book after breakfast, and sit on the terrace all afternoon watching the animals of the savanna, reading and sipping whisky.

The Computer World 25 Years Ago
Came across an old article from 25 years ago (1988) about the Commodore Amiga, so though I'd share. $995 for the Amiga A500, with 512k RAM, 4096 colour monitor and a 800k 3.5" floppy. It got me thinking though, I'm surprised we don't see lots of old Amiga/Atari/Sinclair computer games adapted...
