Got curious when I saw the name Jensen - some Dane has been involved.
Sure enough john Laurence Jensen who arrived 1881 and a few years later proclaimed Jensen was the Pineapple Capitol of the World, harvesting over a million boxes of the fruit.

@panzade,
Where is that castle? Germany, Switzerland or Spain? Can the public go there?

@trying2learn,
Yes, I have been there.
It's the Alcazar Castle in Segovia Spain.

@panzade,
It is an amazing picture and it reminded me of when I went to Europe and saw castles.

@vonny,
I'm wondering what Kash is, exactly. It resembles this and that. One more thing to look up. A friend of mine would know..

@ossobuco,
I just ran across this photo by Margaret Bourke-White:

@vonny,
vonny, This reminds me that Norway is one of the most spectacular and dramatically beautiful countries I've ever been to. My camera went off by accident, and I got a good picture. Gawgeous shot, kid.
