I stand corrected and I do appreciate it. I've always thought that it resembled the Roman architecture so much and just figured.......oh well. The older I get the less I like to travel, whether it be driving or flying. The Belle and I did vacation in Jamaica twice some 18 years ago. But your decription of that area does sound inviting. BTW, has Greece gotten out of its financial and political upheaval yet? They rather upset the international bankers!
It's odd, but I haven't heard anything on the news, lately, about Greece's financial woes. I do know that, when we were there, you could see black smudges, here and there, from Molotov cocktails that were thrown during the demonstrations. I know there still must be problems, but maybe Europe sent them some money, or something. That's what happens when you try to turn a whole country into a "worker's paradise." Still, it you and The Belle should ever get a chance to go there, please go! You will never regret it. Our cruise started in Rome, and then made stops in Sicily, Crete, Turkey, and Greece, and it was a dream come true, for anyone who ever read Greek literature, and mythology. Have a wonderful day, my friend!

The trips sound wonderful! We've not been to Greece but it sounds like quite an adventure. We did enjoy Germany, France, 30 minutes of Italian highway -- crazy drivers, Austria, Switzerland and little Principality of Lichtenstein. We have been to Nashville several times and have seen a lot of things there but there's a lot we haven't seen there., mostly Nashville is a city we drive through to other southern destinations. I do not enjoy I65. A person has to really pay attention to drive that busy road. Now the western part of I80.. Well, just put your automatic pilot on and set back and nap ( not really.. Lol)
The holiday traffic this past week was a real bear to be in, especially with all the road construction. A minivan pulling a small trailer -directly in front of me, lost control leaving crazy skid marks in both traffic lanes and ended up in the median headed the wrong direction. He discovered the importance of having brakes on those trailers !! So did I. Hmmmm, see, I can learn from others mistakes.. Better Half, did you read this? Lol

Anne,

As someone whom drives I-65 a lot, I am in total agreement with you. From here I have to go to Lexington and pick up the Blue Grass Parkway. I have, long ago, driven completely across the Parkway without seeing another vehicle. It's busier now but not nearly like I-65. When you hit the Southbound lanes it's like All Hell Broke Loose. Always a wreck, most often KSP is out in force as is TSP. We used to live in Huntsville, AL (5 different times) and Nashville became our second home. I know every bar, restaurant, club and dive and there are lot's of all of those. It is a fun city and I had the largest concentration of clients there than anywhere in the SE USA. Dollar General HQ, Tractor Supply HQ, Cracker Barrel HQ (out in Lebanon) Lifeway Christian HQ, United Methodist Publishing House HQ and even Brach's Confections over in Chattanooga. I never failed to leave there without a backseat full of every candy you know they make. I had all of those as clients for 20+ years and got to be their sole source for Computer Equipment like servers/storage/Network Switches and you name it. HP, IBM, Cisco, EMC, etc., They were not too happy about me retiring in May but, 35 years is a long career in that business. I still have to help Dollar General, I built their huge datacenter and know where all the cables are under the floor,,,:-)

Great memories, except for I-65!

Lol. I live within minutes of I65 and sometimes at night I hear the traffic . Aggravating. I took a short stroll under the moon and down the drive past the pond just a few minutes ago and all I heard were the bullfrogs so its a good night!
Huntsville, huh? My sister retired from teaching there. The guy that jogged past their house every morning noticed their for sale sign and ended up buying the house. She now lives in a small town in West Virginia that's famous for Mothman. That's a strange story!
We moved to the same city 3 times , not your 5 times to Huntsville though, lol. At last count we've lived in 19 places. 5 different states --both ends of the Mississippi River and both sides of the Ohio River, plus wyoming. Needless to say, I know how to pack and move and I don't want to do that again, period.

Sam,

I run a Chrome browser with "Ad-Aware" extension enabled so I never see a single ad. It's great and it's all free. Give it a shot, great stuff. I got so tired of M$FT and IE.

Guys please stop saying this is a sign the end is near. We have been having these signs for years stop acting like its something new. There is a reasonable excuse both biblical and scientific because they both are one. Science doesn't disprove the bible it backs it up. Every time someone poops sideways there are people crying end of times. Stupid people these days. Smh

most all followers of the bible, do agree that this earth age is close to winding down.the first age had a set time limit ,this second age we are in has a set time limit.the 3th earth has a set time of 1000 yrs.when you can tell the age is coming close is when ever thing in that age is almost finished.Christ give examples of the last days happenings.in this earth age he said no one knew the day or hour.but the season.is easy figured out.he said when you see the things written come passed you know the time is near.he gave a good sample of the planting of the fig tree the fig tree was Israel becoming a nation again.that happened in 1948 he said this generation would not pass until all other things were fulfilled .now one thing is for sure it was not the 40 yr generation he spoke of.but it you read and follow closely he gave a good example when he said ever man should live 3 score plus 10 no we know a score is 20 yrs.so 3 score plus 10 that's 70 yrs.i think that's the generation he spoke of.so if this is the one then its up in 2018.the one other spoken of in the old bible was 120 yrs.the reason i think it could be the 70 yrs its the one Christ spoke of.if it was the 120 yr generation then in 2068 would be the time.so its got 4 yrs ,or 54 yrs. one.
