Yeah I remember in the early CrunchBang days there was plent of swearing and no-one cared. Times change, but the basic point I suppose is not to hurl abuse at a person. So "I really fucked up there" is OK but "f**k off!" is not. OTOH a continuous stream of blasphemy can get a bit wearing... everything in moderation.

Well said, and I'll try and refrain from a continuous stream. Is that really how we spell continuous? Holy French, Barman!

A very warm, even hot weekend here...

Also, location of that ^ very cheery sunset, please?

Re: Cheery Pic of the Day

^That's really pretty. Is that typical southern US architecture?

The sunrise (I think it was) was at Sakushima, a small island in the Ise Bay, not far from Nagoya. A winter one-night stopover some years ago. The sunny weather and natural warmth from the sea made it quite mild, even in January.

No, the whole park and housing around it is right downtown but is new and designed to sort-of fit in. I'll post some authentic Charleston architecture tomorrow.

Thank the Maker, it's Japan! The whole theme would have to be renamed, it would have been tragic. big_smile Sunrise/sunset, fine. Japan/Wales, a bit more of a discrepancy.

Also, Sakushima everyone. The Island of Art, the Island of the Winds. 11km (about 6.8 miles) in circumference...

I could be misinterpreting you here, but my first reaction is "Jesus dude, chill the fuck out!" I've been fully vaccinated since May or June. Of 2020. And who the fuck is sleekmason infecting there? There's not a person around for miles, I bet, and it's outdoors. Hey, @sleek, don't sneeze directly on people by the campfire and we're all good.

You never know, maybe sleekmason joined the resistance.
Like in the old TV series Otpisani (The Written Offs).

Ooohh! Sorry I missed all this:) We are the resistance all right, but were leading the vaccinated into the forest. Ha! We have been vacc'ed and boosted, but that is not the norm here.  We also glad to be some of the few who wear masks as well.  Makes going to the grocery store a real treat. roll We have had quite a few encounters with folks to be sure. Kinda nuts really.

@hhh, 70 a couple of days ago, now 15 degrees F. and dreary here. Funny weather this year.

@johnraff, Japan is simply amazing.

@mariannemarlowe,  I can tell Bertie is very sweet. I see lots of love in your pics:)

Re: Cheery Pic of the Day

^ +1 to lots of love, from a cynical curmudgeon.

OK John, first stage into knowing more about Charleston architecture than you ever needed to know...

https://pamharringtonexclusives.com/blo … yle-homes/

Charleston's history and development is, especially for an American city, too long and complicated and terribly racist to go into. It also has a unique location which affected its architecture. Known as "The Lowcountry" (yes, spelled as one word), this region of South Carolina is essentially a vast, just-above sea level swamp on the shores of the southern Atlantic. "The Peninsula", as us locals call downtown, is a 1.5 mile by 3 mile north-to-south facing thorn into the sea, held together by 2 rivers that join to create Charleston harbour and the Atlantic.

Anyway, hot and muggy in the summertime, which usually lasts nearly seven months. So, unlike other Antebellum southern towns of the late 1700s, Charleston developed it's own design, the Charleston single. Note the 2-story tall but only 1-room wide street-front, the front porch which faces south to face the sea (weird that we face south to the sea when we're on the East Coast), and with a door for weather/sound/sight protection. Back then, if you left your porch door open it meant you were welcome to visitors.

Here is one street, Anson Street. It's only 6 or 7 blocks long.  It features the predominant, historically accurate architectural design of the time (We have a strict zoning laws here. No renovating or demolishing any home without review from the Board of Architectural Review aka the BAR. No buildings over 13 stories is probably the best rule they have in terms of the quality of life we enjoy here. Every other US city has skyscrapers.)

Right, a few pics on a grey day from one of my favorite streets here...

The barkless trees draped in Spanish moss are crape myrtle.

Here's a pretty one, taken from the side that doesn't show nearly anything of what I just said...

iih9sPUt.png

Then, a bit later, you started to get the double wide, adding a story and an elaborate porch structure. Note the earthquake bolts on the facade. We had an earthquake back in the late 1800s that leveled a good portion of the town and started a fire that burnt most of what was left. What still stood got re-enforced with steel rods through the structure that were plated and bolted on the opposite exterior walls. They are fashioned and capped/bolted in a wide variety of styles... star patterns, crosses, lion heads...

NIuNY6Rt.png

Here's one of my favorites at the corner of Anson and Hassell Society, what an amazing piece of real estate. Note the lack of trash, graffiti and tall buildings obliterating the sky (again, unheard of and unseen in other East Coast US cities)...

And this is simply the cat I feed, Miss Peeps, lounging in her natural terrain that is my back porch...

Re: Cheery Pic of the Day

@hhh many thanks I enjoyed that!
So Charleston is somewhat unique?

@sleek like everywhere Japan has its pros and cons - some people specialize in describing one or the other, but anyway I like living here.

You'd be hard pressed to find a prettier city in America, and certainly not on the East Coast. Yes, I think it's quite special (Boston, New Haven, Hartford, Bucks County PA, Miami Beach, West Palm Beach, Nashville, the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Thunder Bay Ontario, been there and done that. I'm never moving to another town again, that's for sure.) こんにちわ y'all!
