      ... garish, but even the Kraak porcelain made for export to the barbarian West has some attractive pieces.

      An underlying theme is the evolution of art during that period from a purely court interest to what might be described as a middle class hobby. Many of the the painted scrolls were made by gentleman-scholars and mostly extol the virtues of simple country life and private study away from court politics and intrigue. The introductory context ...

      ... and found out where a few things are! That night we went out for dinner (thanks guys!) with Oana.

      Well today is Referendum Day. Much hype from both the Yes and No sides. Mainly the Yes guys are out there. Me - I'm going for No. I do have the right to vote here but didn't wish to. I don't know who will get the vote. I guess we'll all know tomorrow morning.

      Love to all.

This lake, which was termed Nor’ Loch was drained in about 1800. Before that, it was used as the town’s sewer and water supply, as well as a place to drown witches. What a nasty place ...

      And that's about it! You are all so excellent, I just like you so much.

      Understand of course, that since I'm posting this on the internets for all to see, I can't exactly say unkind things about anybody. I may want to.
