Ironbridge looks far too pretty to actually exist.

Ummm Mad... have you had that crack up the side of your shop looked at? And don't tell me you don't haunt the bookshop two doors up! I would. :D

My crack has been there for years Del ;)

Ironbridge is highly unstable and is slowly sliding down the slope into the river, however my building has been standing for over 220 years and the crack dates back to the 1960's, it's OK now as they spent a lot of money in the 1970's shoring up the place.

As for the bookshop I have been known to go in sometimes ;)

We've just had a second bathroom built downstairs so no morning line ups. Best of all we've got sunshine, beaches, cold beer... and other good stuff I've temporarily forgotton about. I am in Australia though so pack more than one pair of undies.

From the sublime to the ... well, not ridiculous, but really small ... here are some pics of my corner of Luxembourg:

Hey Will,
Do you recognize this town? We did a day trip to there from my home town (Prum Germany). It's only about 15 minutes away.

I do not recall the name of the place.

Mad,
No kidding! That looks sooo beautiful!

Sorry about all of the "quoting". I normally don't like to stretch the page out too long.

I can't really add much to what's already been said except that there are some truly stunning places where you live. :D

Con, that looks like Vianden to me. It has an absurdly fairy-tale castle (real medieval, restored in the 1960s). Could also be reached in c. 15 min from Prüm.

Image

Also, if you come from Prüm you should also have heard of the Echternacher Springprozession (two steps forward and one step back, the Germans say :D) . My village band plays in that. 8-)

Image

(That is not our band, but a neighbouring village.)

It is practically impossible to find a pic with both bands and dancers, so here are some of the dancers performing one of the two steps forward.;)

Twas the flautist.

He lived and died in a suburb of Melbourne called Carlton, which has many excellent Italian restuarants and it's own Australian Rules football team which you can see most weekends if you visit in Winter.

It was never really 2 steps forward and 1 back, more like 2 steps forward and 1 or more to the side, but nowadays, as you can see, a wide variety of steps are practised. ;)
