    Home: In the foothills of the Sierras a rural gold country town known for vegetable growing during the California Gold Rush... Currently many Christmas Tree farms, and one property owner has 3-Buffalo grazing within 2-miles/3-km of home... Canada geese year-round... Annual snow; sometimes hot summers leading to drought and Pine Tree die-offs from beetle bugs.

    Same question.

    A city that is losing itself in a strive for power between different local barons, yet aspires to be capital to an entire continent. The result is a, by times, administrative nightmare. Despite all that, daily life is mostly fabulous. The city is a patchwork of neighbourhoods and area's that each offer their own atmosphere: from lively neighbourhoods filled with pubs and terraces in the summer to more elegant areas with more reserved restaurants, from residential areas with the odd local bistro offering unexpected high standard food to business areas that thrive on activity in the day time, yet lie desolate at night. Due to it being home to several international organisations, the population has also turned into a melting pot: there are pubs where, at the end of an office day, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish... are all spoken at the same time.
    It was called a "hell hole" not that long ago... But looking at the man who called it that, we tend to not be bothered.

    Next question: given the choice, where would you want to live?

    The link will reveal it all

    To avoid confusion: Melsbroek is just an adjoining smaller city where part of the airport is located.

    Deep south of Spain. Somewhere inbetween Malaga and Cadiz. Marbella-Estopona preferably, if feasible.

    I like to sew on rainy afternoons.

    How do you define happiness?

    Happiness is family with the knowledge that we can be together into the eternities.

    Happiness is serving others with no thought of reward.

    Happiness is listening to Haydn while gazing out a window as a white breasted
    nuthatch flirts with his reflection time after time after time - worrying a juvenile
    black cat as an older cat indifferently naps upon a cushion fashioned with a print
    of a Forest Chapel on it... looking upon pines and oaks and fig trees and
    cedars and bonsai as Painted Ladies pass through the yard as singles and couples
    and threes; all the whilst contemplating poetry on this lazy light-breezy May day

    (Note: after all this time he's still flirting (lol) )

    Same question...

    "happyness is music when silence is intrusive.": (profound)

    Gary Larson's The Far Side series of books. I googled for some funny books to see if I'd read any of the selections and came up empty... https://www.rd.com/culture/funniest-books-of-all-time/ ... some look promising.

    I read "Alien" before the movie came out and it terrified me into sleeping with the lights on for some time (oh, and thanx a lot Sherry for coaxing me into watching the movie... still gives me the creeps)................................ what book has affected you strongly in some way after reading it ?

    The book that affected me strongly after reading it is 'The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society' by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.

    It made me realize how much we take for granted the liberties and luxuries that we have, while in the war days they were starved of basic comforts. Sadly though, there are many parts of the world that are experiencing this discomfort even now.

    Same question...
