Shoot Three - "Amsterdam II"

O Canada!!! Glorious and free!!!

Glorious about hearing from Elaine, Michelle, Jim, Joani, and Mike Di.

"The Keukenhof!"

The Keukenhof Gardens was our main reason for starting out this trip in Amsterdam. To see these gardens in full floral display was a unique experience! Spending the entire day walking through the paths and through the display halls was a multi-sensory experience!

Don't throw away those DISCO BOOTS, there is still some life left in them as floral displays!

Getting Older?

Where in the World?

Here are some interesting facts about various countries of the world. Just where would I be? Here is an easy one:

seven countries share a border with it.

its national symbol is the White Eagle

famous native son Nicolaus Copernicus, the famous 16th century astronomer who first suggested the sun was the center of our universe.

famous physicist, chemist and Nobel laureate Marie Curie (or Maria Sklodowska) was born here as well.

has more than 20 Nobel Prize Laureates, of these 4 were for Peace prizes and 5 in Literature.

of all migratory birds that travel to Europe for the summer, one quarter of them breed here making it the most important
bird breeding ground in Europe.

Interesting Fact. . .

The military salute is a motion 
that evolved from medieval times, 
when knights in armor raised their visors 
to reveal their identity. 

Leaving on a humorous note, I hope!

If God wanted me to touch my toes, 
he'd have put them on my knees!!
