    Most I ever paid for a regatta. At least the exchange have improved slightly. Last summer it would have been $300. Now it's "only" $220. It's just noise in what the whole trip is going to cost anyway.

    Thank you! That is super excellent. Must be someplace without a lot to do, though.

    Weebah!

    Europeans, don't forget: Today it is election day for the European Parliament.

    In attachment, I introduce to you the new tiny member in our garden. It sure is born at Easter 2009, very shy and yes, it was not easy to get it in front of the lense. We now call him (or her) "Fred Jr." (or "Frederike Jr.") ;)

    Ciao

    Nope, but you could be misled by the texture. It's actually an original piece of acrylic artwork called 'Jericho Morning' by Kris Borowski, a local Vancouver artist.

    Excerpt from his website --> http://www.krisborowskistudio.com/
    "Kris was born in Poland and educated at the School of Architecture and Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. The visual arts have been his abiding passion since childhood.

    After completing his Master's degree, he left Poland to take up a Ford Foundation scholarship in London, England. Two years later he moved to Rome, where he worked as an architect, one of his projects being a new wing for the Vatican Museum. He traveled widely in Europe, drawing and painting, and began to exhibit and sell his work.

    He then settled in England, where he established an architectural practice in Henley-on-Thames around 1970 and continued to paint and draw.

    In 1976 he moved to Vancouver, where he was principal of an architectural firm until 1996. Since then he has devoted his time entirely to painting. His work has been shown in many galleries in Vancouver and London and featured on CBC Radio and Television."

    A few years ago some of his artwork was on display at JSCA

    Here's another classic Vancouver Harbour scene.

    as obvious as it is that the world is 3/4 water and 1/4 land it is made perfectly clear that god intends us to spend 3/4 of our timesailing and just 1/4 of our time doing other things on land
