artbyjody G - I respectfully request that you show us actual garbage dumpster with trash overflowing, people puking on the sidewalks, abandoned cars on whatever you folks use as cinder blocks...

Obviously you have no trailer parks but we know sheep are there - photos of those are welcomed as well and if you can pull out a cow that doesn't look like a Jersey cow... kudos...

Seriously though - reminds me of Brest France of how clean it is - you are lucky to live there ...

Valiente If you lived in my neighbourhood, you'd know the answer: They couldn't stop arguing with the donkey.

My Azorean neighbours are nice people, but are not particularly sophisticated, or nearly as tall as the mainland Portuguese. I think a lot of modernization has happened in the last 30 years.

Why did my ancestors leave Portugal.

jrd22 Giu, thanks, I liked that a lot. Nice to see what a place you have never been is like. Looks like a very comfortable, clean town with beautiful weather. Where do you mostly go sailing, are there a lot of coastal towns with marinas, islands? Very nice.

sailingdog On the flip side of that, 75 deg. F is considered pretty warm here in New England. I remember when we had some cousins up visiting from Florida, and it was late June and we went off to the beach. They were bringing sweatshirts along and thought we were crazy for swimming in 75 deg. weather...but back then, if we waited until it was 95 deg, we'd get one or two days of swimming a year...

Giu, I feel your pain, I am also used to hot/warm weather. It's just funny, here if temps drop to about 70'sF, everyone is wearing a sweater. It's a matter of getting used to a particular temp.

Once I had a work visit by someone from Lafayette Indiana come over in May, 90+ temps, and we were out working. I was barely breaking a sweat and he had his shirt completely wet from the sweat.

He told me that back a his house, he would open the windows when temps got to around that temp I am officially an iceberg , so it's a matter of getting used to a certain temperature range.
