    This is Alcoa, in Lafayette, check out the wye

    If you would like an aerial of your own area, try clicking the icon above the picture for "advanced find", then enter city, state/provence, country. That get's you close and you can scroll with the arrows, and zoom in.

    This is Staley's , the local steam factory. Oh, they also make corn syrup from all that Indiana corn. Ahhhh, that sticky, gewy sweet pancrease killing goo, found in nearly everything we eat!

    Kewl Jon.... Is the wye down in the lower right, just left of the highway?

    I love terraserver, I used it to trace the tracks that run behind my house.

    That's pretty cool! I looked up my current neighborhood as well as locations in my boyhood home. Aartwmich, I found several recognizable points of interest in the Saugeries area. :)

    Those Crazy French People...

    Man, they have a different word for EVERYTHING.:D

    (If you speak the language...are you allowed to joke about it?)

    aartwmich,

    Where are you going in France, I spent my honeymoon
    in Provence... it was AMAZING. all I can recommend is
    that you throw caution to the wind and eat, drink, eat
    some more.. then have something to eat while you are
    decided what to eat and drink next

    :)

    Thanks Jon ;)


    Grumbeast..a couple days in Paris, a few days in Dordogne, Carcosonne and the Pyreneese, then about 5 days in Montpellier where my daughter is spending her senior year of college we will investigate Provence and southern France with her, then a day or two in Nice before flying home. I can't wait, I'm sure we'll come home well saturated with all there is to ingest with our minds and bodies.......and surely several pounds heavier in the body...LOL


    We'll work our way around the language...I speak no French but the niceties, luckily my daughter does so we'll be covered there for half the trip.
