Re: Notes and Noticings from the road

PHeymont ·
Actually, I think the banks have a fairly minimal (as small as I can make it) impact on my currency transactions, in part because I never deal with exchanges; I use bank ATMs. That way, the exchange takes place not on my account, but as an interbank transaction at the base rate banks use with each other. I used to use my ATM card from Citibank, but eventually they began charging a 3% foreign exchange fee even on withdrawals. At that point, I opened an account with Charles Schwab, a brokerage...

Re: July 27, 2016: Bighorn Sheep at Hemenway Park in Boulder City, NV

DrFumblefinger ·
Wow! That's a lot of sheep! I imagine there are few places that offer such succulent moist grass for these desert dwellers. Must have been fun to stop and study them. And good that you didn't let those little dogs out of the car, as the sheep likely would have killed them.

Re: Gallery: Boulder County Farmers Market, Colorado

GarryRF ·
What an extravaganza of colours ! That's the type of market I love. All the fresh produce in front of the counter so you can select your own choice. When I'm on the road touring I have to be reminded that I cant cook all those delicious vegetables. There's a few there I couldn't name - never seen them before ! Wonderful display !

I love markets...and the history they embody, from those like Basel that have been in the same place for hundreds of years to the 19th century enclosed markets that many cities developed (and some kept!) but I have an especially good feeling about markets like this one, and our New York Greenmarkets that have revived the market tradition in places where it was nearly gone, and made a success of it. What a long sentence!

Yes, think about what items would fit well for thumbnail images that people could use as avatars. We can create a bunch, and I do have a number of penguin photos that fit the bill.
