Warming up in Washington; it will be around sixty both days this weekend. Sunny and bright this morning, like life in general. :)

TOTD: I'm getting the urge to wander again. Just two months left till we go to Alaska. Yesterday I was looking at apartments in Paris again, since we're going back next winter.

If you spent a year abroad, which country would you choose? France is on my mind, so that would likely be my choice. We do plan to do that when we retire - pick a place abroad and spend six months to a year there. That's a good reason to streamline our belongings at home, so we don't have so much to put in storage!

Where would you go? And yes, it has to be outside the United States.

It's been in the 60's and 70's this week. Now it's in the 30's, but going up to the mid 50's.

TOTD: If the trip abroad were for a month, I'd consider Iceland. I've been there twice and enjoyed the peace and serenity. Longer than that I'd think would be very boring and the bad weather would set in. I'm talking about a month mid summer.

For an extended period I'd prefer the UK. I loved a visit to Wales and Scotland, and would love the countryside of Great Britain. The bustle of London was nice for a few days, but wouldn't be relaxing enough for me. I could definitely see a six month visit there.

It's excellent weather for the first day of Spring out here. I saw a forsythia (in a protected area) that was an explosion of yellow. It was a very cheerful sight. :)

TOTD: I don't have much interest in staying one place if I went abroad. I would prefer to plan out a leisurely tour of all in the really interesting cathedrals and shrines in Europe. I'd start in Scandinavia and end up in Turkey.

Stuck at home and imobile due to back pain. :(

TOTD - Eire. Beautiful Island. Terrific people. Been there twice already. I'd open a mission so I'd have to go either to Dublin or Belfast.

Sorry about your back. :( Do you mean "Erin"? I know it's hard to get Pennsylvanians to leave home, and Erie IS in Pennsylvania. :D

Great thought of the day.

I think I would choose Spain or Italy. Hard choice. If I had to narrow it down, I'd say Italy.

I would have said Scotland but I don't know how to order 'scotch' there. I'd feel awkward. What would I say?

"Uisge beathe" - (wish-ka ba-ha) ..."the water of life". It's the origin of the word whisky - which you could just ask for as long as there's no "e" in whisky!

What can I say? You have me pegged, all right. I raise a Lagavulin in your direction. Well.... later in the day, anyway.

This is very true. I suppose it can be too early in the morning to have a drink, but I should think that is never too late on the previous night for a nightcap.

Proportion and Priopriety, as I think it's Ginger who says.

If she did have a pegged leg it would be the Heather Mills type which would allow her to trip the light fantastic.

She knows not to put an e is whisky so I plan to suck up to her in a major way. :cool:

And, she can spell.
