I like it here! With war and other misery going on in the world, it is nice to be remembered that it is not all that way. Here I get to see beautiful pictures of flowers, sunsets, animals, night skies, cities and landscapes. What's not to like!? I thank you all for sharing your pictures. You make my day a better day! e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

hogman72664: Living my daily life with people in need of constant medical treatment I couldn't agree with you more. These people are awesome, all the training, dedication and then faced with being over worked and under paid and yet they still continue to give their best. I admire those that choose that profession so much. Great news about your brother as well. :):)
_marisol: Great to hear your brother is recovering! This job can be hard, both mentally and physically, or it depends a bit on what´s your department in the hospital. I mean working in the ER can be really stressful and hard, you give your everything and yet you should take sh*t from the...I put it in this way, an ungrateful customer, most often intoxicated or mentally deranged (+ some people who come from another culture). I was more than happy when I was transferred from the ER to the operating room, it´s a quiet and peaceful place to work but your responsibility is huge. Do you have anything in your mind you´re going to specialize in? Personally, pediatrics could´ve been mentally too much for me. I really respect docs and nurses who work with children. Wish you success in your studies! 👍
hogman72664: Well according to Trinity House (yep I'm a lighthouse nerd) they are painted different colours according to the background, so a lighthouse against a dark backgound is nearly always white but sometimes they will add red stripes to help with identification, this happens when there are more than one lighthouse along the coast. If they are in close proximity to other lighthouses they will also have differing flash patterns. Then on top of this the curvature of the earth is also a factor and therefore lighthouses on top of cliffs are usually shorter than those nearer the sea (like on a pier). As for the smell, I remember it clearly. Lovely to see these reminders of a great part of our country, thank you.
