Liz,

I see "progress" towering what was once our history and our past.

Don't get me wrong, I love shiny things, but enjoy the story of the older building.

I agree Sheila - I love the old architecture and thats one of the reasons I love Europe so much.  That being said I have to say I was mesmerized by the skyscrapers interspered with some of the more classical buildings - kind of an interesting juxtapositioning.

You're right Joan - the blend of the old and the new!  Loved it!

Liz:  Nice to see you !  If I look at the clouds to the right at the top, and let my imagination run... I can see somewhat of a body form... with a head at the top of it.  The face of it almost looks a bit like that old-timey kids show character Howdy Doody.  I used to watch it as a kid... almost sixty years ago.  Hmmmm.  I think I need a nap.

Liz:  Do you remember any of the other characters besides Howdy Doody ?  There was Buffalo Bob, Clarabelle, Chief Thunderthud, Dilly Dally, Detective John J Fadoozle, Flub-a-Dub, and my personal favorite... Princess SummerFall WinterSpring.  Oh yes... and Mr Bluster.  Mr Phineas T Bluster. 

Ahhh... life was much simpler then, or at least it seems like it was.
