@ossobuco,
I can't think whatever other intersection my memory could fit - I take it as Sepulveda and Wilshire, which was within our neighborhood. I can only guess that the flower plants were some business thing, as I don't think now that was the general use of the area.

Well, never mind where I am from...

let's hear from the rest of us.

i live on the big west island of New Zealand. There are kangaroos on this western island.
Is there a relationship between New Zealand and Austrailia ?

Similar to the relationship between the US and Canada i would guess.
NZ ers are able to claim social services (like unemployment benefits)
if resident in Aust and a reciprocal arrangement is in place for Australians resident in Nz

NZers refer to Aust as the western island as a joke.
I see what u mean. When u first posted that,
I understood it to mean that u were in residence in New Zealand,
on one of whose islands where kangaroos reside.
Having read your profile, I was aware of your love for Austrailia.
I visited it briefly in the 1980s n have a good opinion of it.

Lived in England, moved around with in it a lot over the last few years.

Cornwall until i was 10, Devon for a year, then in London for 2 years, back to cornwall was 5 moths, back to Devon for another year, back to Cornwall since then, don't intend to leave again.

A lot of the Cornish don't like to think of themselves as part of England, more another country in the United Kingdom, which is amusing.

Of the parts of England i've lived, Cornwall has to be the best, closely followed by Devon and a long way off, trawls London.

Hi, Abbie
My grandfather came from Devon in the 1800s.
I 've never been there. From your picture, it seems kind of empty.
It looks like there r more people in London.

Honestly, Setanta ... you are such a show-off, such a know-all!

I am not even going to give you the satisfaction of asking how you did that! Wink Razz

@msolga,
Göttingen really is a very fine place (and just an hour away from us) - we pass it frequently on our way to MIL's place in the Harz mountains

@Walter Hinteler,
It is indeed, Walter. Very beautiful.

(But my visit there was a rather melancholy one - the reason my family was there at all was due to the "forced labour"/WW2 situation. But let's not dwell on this. It's history now.)

Alright then!

I'm asking: how do you actually do that?
