If I were to pick the Vermont and Manitoba, laugh out loud, this is not even the problem! In addition, the pie is better in the southern border.
Love New England, beautiful! Liked Vermont. not creepy!!! I have never been to Canada, but, have always imagined it to be a very big version of Scotland, and since its full of descendents from Scotland and Ireland (Like JJ's family)I'd probably feel at home. I must visit Canada... I love the States, especially NY and California.
I lol at you guys and your jokes about being invited to towns with tumbleweed.... love that whole creepy atmosphere created in westfield....very twin peaks. If you guys are worried about being knifed over some pie, can I suggest you come to Brigadoon - we don't need knives, the pie will kill you!!
Was reading the debate about Green Mountains, and thinking that its always interesting how languages other than English make things sound so romantic. Ver(t)mont...makes sense. In Scotland our famous mountain range is the Cairngorms....and cairn is Gaelic for mountain, and gorm
(pronouned gorum) is blue...so blue mountains....
I like the exchanges about each of you- great to knwo a bit about folk we have been exchanging ideas with for so long.
yeah brigadoon is an imaginary place in a shocking Gene Kelly film...it's sort of shorthand for the twee and rather chocolate box notion people have about us here. So it's used sarcastically!! the pics are beautiful, just like i recall, thanks, and the bottom one looks not unlike the view from the end of my road, only our loch is smaller!!
Here's an artist's imaginary sculpture of him, at the Burlington pier ...
Of course the only "photo" of him is the *fuzzy out-of-focus* siteing below ...
And experts say that the above was not doctored in anyway, though it's possible that it could have been a stunt dinosaur , if that family was really intent on faking it.
