    Teddles,

    In Lubeck we got exposed to oyster-gray skies, torrential floods from the Heavens, and just a little bit of sun - the same for Fyn - Copenhagen was sunny and smily as always when we are there - Halmstad gave us 3-1/2 really hot and sunny days. And now my mother is with us in Moscow for her vacation.

    A fascinating area worth exploration I should imagine CD. Lovely that your mother can join you. I imagine the triplets will get throughly spoilt. Thats what grandparents are for.

    Thanx Teddles - My wife and I received quadruplets - 2 girls and 2 boys, so hands are full but they never scream, shriek, caterwaul or squall. We really love Lubeck. The old town is surrounded by what looks almost like a moat - a most perfect town...

    Teddles,

    Please help to refresh my memory as to which town in the U.K. has done most to preserve its historical character - Is it York or Salisbury or some other town? Lubeck is on the UNESCO World Heritage List...

    Propably Salisbury CD. A few years ago Canterbury started to repair the damage they had done with concrete, following the damage Hitler did, and a lot of it looks much better now. It is certainly worth a visit and you would love the cathederal.

    Teddles,

    I've been to Canterbury and am thoroughly moved by the Cathedral. Salisbury I visited a very long time ago so my memory is quite foggy

    If you have been to Canterbury Cathedral you can imagine the pleasure we had when my daughters graduation ceremony was staged there. All the pomp not to mention the choir and the organ. Wonderful occasion

    Back from the South of France and missing it. The sunshine, the heat, the pace of life, the simply food. Pining. Pining.

    This is the old converted shepherds cottage we stay in, complete with 10 metre pool at the back.

    Drinks with the owners family in the evening. (or should that be drunks?)

    A lovely way to spend time Margaret. I had had two holidays on the canals but would love to do the broads as well. A gorgeous way to see the scenery, not to mention the wayside pubs.
