Shoot Eleven - Stowe, VT

Nigeria! Well done - Michelle, Milt, Mike Di., Elaine, and Peyton!

"Luce Barn Road"

Still in VT for one more image - this is the barn at the bottom of Luce Road (road leading to the Von Trapp lodge)! The red barn is very picturesque all year long but I decided to have some fun with it by going B&W but I did leave the trees and the grass in front green!

Where in the World?

Here are some interesting facts about various countries of the world. Just where would I be? 

Historically, this country is prone to monsoon flooding and cyclones due to its unique geographic make up. The country is almost entirely flat!

The highest peak here is Saka Haphong in the southeastern Mowdok Range at just 1,052 m (3,451 ft).

It has a population of 163 million people (163,654,860) as of July 2013 making it the world's eighth most populated country. For such a large population, it is a relatively small country, 147,570 km² (56,977 mi²), making it one of the world's most densely populated countries.

The largest city and capital is Dhaka. The city has an estimated population of 15 million people making it one of the largest cities in the world. It is known as the "City of Mosques".

The national animal is the endangered Royal Bengal Tiger.

The Magpie Robin (or Doyel or Doel) is the national bird.

The national flower is the white-flowered water lily, called Shapla.

Jackfruit is the national fruit and the Mango tree is the national tree.

The most popular sport is cricket. The national cricket team first participated in the Cricket World Cup in 1999. Kabaddi (or Ha-Du-Du) is its national game. It is often called the 'game of rural Bengal' and has no definite rules.

Interesting Thought. . .

To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. 
To steal from many is research!

Leaving on a humorous note, I hope!

A recent study has found women 
who carry a little extra weight live longer than 
men who mention it ...
