    I also love the pics, tsq! Looks like a festive time (hospital trip notwithstanding). Glad to hear you're feeling better! I especially like the photo with your nephew and the lamp!

    @Rhubarbodendron: That's hilarious! Generally when I find faces in places they aren't meant to be it totally weirds me out. But that one is great!

    @Tom Hendricks:Cool shot! Looks like a neat place to visit! And Roslyn isn't too far from here. I once bought a Saturn from the (now closed) dealership there.

    Yes, so glad your feeling better and are back TSQ. Great pics, well except the hospital one. Your dad as Santa and your nephews reaction are priceless.

    Ancient Mariner, we bought a Vue from that dealership as well. It was so close, when it closed we had to go to the Saturn dealership in Garden City.

    Those pics are just plain awesome. The Spaceballs jersey photo alone ought to earn you a board promotion or something all by itself. :)

    And that was constructed during the medieval period, right? We're talking a building that's seven or eight hundred years old? It's beautiful.

    Off the top of my head, it was started in the 12th century, and was one of the targets of German bombing during WWII. Exeter has no military strategic position, but it dates back to Roman times, when it was called Isca, so was one of the cultural targets during the war. One of the side chapels was damaged, but has been rebuilt so in keeping with the rest of the cathedral that it blends in beautifully. The cathedral alone is worth a visit to the city, but it's full of historic architecture.

    I've been to St. Patrick's and St. John the Divine in New York City but as grand as those are (and St. John the Divine is enormous and breathtaking) those old medieval and Renaissance cathedrals on the European continent look so inviting to visit and are so much more ancient. Just think about all the local, national and world history that's occurred since the foundation for that building was first laid.

    It is indeed meatloaf. I made it so that I could make this meme.

    Fun fact: When that clock in Exeter Cathedral was first installed the ropes working the mechanism were greased with animal fat, which attracted a lot of rodents. The problem was so severe that the cathedral not only had cats to catch the rodents, but a cat-sized hole was cut in the wooden door in front of the stairs leading to the mechanism, which can still be seen to this day. This was the inspiration for the nursery rhyme Hickory Dickory Dock. Next time I'm inside the cathedral I'll get a photo of the personalised kitty door.

    RoJoHen, that beefcake meme is awesome. :lol:

    What is your recipe? I've yet to find one I like better than my own spiced up riff on my mother's.
