I miss it too! I'll be here waiting when people decide to come back
I'm here too and I miss all of you as well :'( . My renos are almost done and hopefully I'll get some pics up of all the changes, soon. It's been a while since I've done a "Home Project" thread ;).
I think we should at least grunt every so often so we know we're not alone.   :-\

Ninja - can't wait to see what you've done. I still remember your patio project and that great gate. And I am holding you to that BBQ invite!

Considering I bought the house, last March, you can imagine what's being done if I'm, just now, moving in ;).

So I'm out touring airports, hotels and conference rooms and I saw this. 



It has been a long week, but this is the view out of my hotel room right now.  I can see that from my bed.  As in I will be facing that view when I wake up tomorrow.

Looks like Germany maybe in the first pic? I know it can't be the UK as something like that would have been vandalised by yobs.🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪
Currently playing...umm nothing much.
TWD No-Man’s Land but getting  very bored with it very quickly.

Would still be playing We Rule and Supernauts - if the devs could be bothered.

Ooooo... is this a new game? Where in the world is Wileyone? Visited Wileyone's Photobucket, but no clue there either, unless the photo of the giant glass of beer (jet lag cure?) was shot on the same trip.

Why yes, the "giant" glass of beer was shot on the same trip.  1 hour later actually.  Saw the photo I posted while looking to have a beer.  Pic is the house blonde beer.  It was mighty tasty I must say.

That was the view from my hotel in Israel. Herzliya to be more exact. Just got off a 15 hr flight to be stuck in morning rush hour traffic to go home for a shower and log my 8 hrs for the day.

I was guessing somewhere on the Med. My first choice was southern Spain where Germans and Brits like to vacation, but still eat (and drink) foods from home. I was only a couple-a miles kilometers off. But, I'm still stuck on that fountain (?). Exactly where is that located?

The beer and the fountain are found in Reutlingen, Germany. 

Funny thing, I took the photo of that "fountain" before we stopped in the tourism office to ask about where to find a traditional place for beer.  The tourism book listed that "fountain" as one of the major sights in Reutlingen.

The funny looking B is a "ss".

Good thing about German beers is that I don't get hangovers from drinking them.
