    11 years ago Wife & I had a 4 hour lay over in Madrid airport, waiting for a connection through to Canary Is, BORING as batshit inside that airport, thought I got pretty good at my Spanish by repeating the 10 million PA announcements, answer to the question - Safe?, yes, but the world (& prolly the airport) has changed in 11 years so hopefully more current info will come to light for you.

    any Boeing babies out there know this kind of structure ? google tells me that it is an image from a book by Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel, who gathered images of 'evidence' from the 70's and titled the book "Evidence" [imaginative!] and this image is included as"untitled" - that is a whole other rabbit hole................. my question, in the image above, would the painting gantry move along the fuselage or, the fuselage move through the painting gantry ? My guess is 'A' - gantry moves, but that us a shit ton of plumbing to move with it. Anyone with 'actual' knowledge please.

    guess there are two kinds of people, and only one has Deep Thought, the other exhibit the perfect uselessness of knowing the answer to the wrong question. [sorry Ursula]

    new W10 screen saver came up today for Matsuzaki in Japan, thought I would use street view to have a little walk around the town and noticed this placemarker/memorial/monument to a boat or sailor: I am sure that sign above the shop in back says "scientific research" - not "Fish Shop"

    36 hours in Sydney austraila

    ^^wot Keef said ^^ and ......... buy a day pass at the airline lounge wife is travelling with - dump bags. get a train from the airport to Circular Quay in the city. see the harbour by ferry - from Circular quay to Manly Beach - Walk from the Manly Ferry Wharf to The Boat House at Shelly Beach for a nice meal - walk to the Boat House via "the Corso" - has tons of shops, bars etc - return to airport by reversing above will use up most of the daylight hours available. Return to airline lounge for showering, food & drink, and where it is in staff's interest to wake you up & get you onto the correct flight. **NOTE** - All Government transport in Sydney has a single ticket system called "opal card" (no cash), pre-paid RFID card used on any bus, Ferry or train - may be worth a shout out to @B.J. Porter he has the whole "being an American tourist in Sydney" well worked out after being here for a year or so. enjoy

    storing family history

    Meli, if there is that kind of cash at hand, the scanning services will do the work for between 50c & 25c per image depending on volume, by the sound of it - your MIL's collection would qualify for the least cost. I just used the search phrase: photo scanning service melbourne and it returned many to choose from. As you have indicated, it is a mind numbing job, but well worth it for archival purposes. I have been building a family tree (for 30 years) based on images of how a persons appearance changes over the years, and sourcing images and doing the archival gets frustrating at times, particularly when a suitcase full of 'stuff' gets left with you and no one to ask who is who in the images and letters - no money found yet !
