Interesting. Could also have something to do with people not being tied to a particular area perhaps, as Otis suggests has been the case in Poland. In any event, regional accents are quite common here. Even a place like the Pittsburgh/Western Pennsylvania area has its own bizarre lingo and accent.

Virginia is full of 'em.
People in far southwestern VA have a very bizzare accent. Practically indiscernable to me. Then you have the slow drawl here close to the West Virginia border. People from northern VA over-pronounce their o's. I could go on.

Perhaps I'm wrong and the US can match England for accent variety - at least per capita, if not per mile.

Btw, didn't mean to be hard on all folks with a broad Australian accent. Far from it, it just annoys me that too many people try to imitate it and adopt it and/or wear it like a badge. They think it makes them more Australian.

Let's put the accent back on photos and let me share some images from a fancy dress party I was at recently . I donned clerical garb to , fleetingly, give in to my mother's wish to have a priest in the family -

I'm guessing from the group photo that it was a competition to see who could most look like a paedaphile.

Have you got any good willy photos?

John, you're a little too realistic as a priest. :lol: Maybe you really can convince your mom. ;-)

By the way john, I'd like to compliment you on your willy photos. :lol:

A few shots from my recent trip to Boston...

Me and the kids at Border Cafe in Harvard Square. Kieran just got himself a Magic 8 Ball and was asking it questions non-stop until we got home. He had to get his sister to read the responses...

One more - not for the squeamish...

Me and my sis Jen at the wedding reception. Not sure how much I'd had to drink, but it must have been a lot!

Accompanying are the few decent shots my camera got of the great weekend I just spent in Nice, France. The first one shows fellow book club members Tessa and Maureen trying to spot clothes shops they didn't
visit.

Image


Then you see the beach front under some fabulous clouds , followed by some views of the old town , taken while T.& M. looked at clothes and I ate cake.

None of the photos I have of the apartment do it justice. It was correctly judged that it wasn't big enough for my ego so I was , for the first night, booked into nearby seminary , where I posed , suitably
contrite.

Offering basic, clean accommodation it also boasts, as my last photo shows, stunning sea views.

Foodwise , I'm still trying the get over the excellence of the meal we had at Baud et Millet 29, rue Benoît-Bunico. It doesn't seem to have a
website but this comment tell it all -

A few more photos from my Chicago trip have just reached me-

My interest in this is/was, obviously, purely academic.

Excellent pictures John. Nice is great - though I almost destroyed the rental car there. Agree about Grant Wood - and it doesn't end with American Gothic; I saw an exhibit in Worcester, Mass a few years ago and was hugely impressed.

Wow, that's gorgeous. I really do hope to travel like you do someday, John. It must be great.

Outstanding photos, John. I love your profile of looking at American Gothic. It makes for a noteworthy photo.

Not to mention the view from the apartment in Nice.

Thanks for bringing them to the board. Your photo contributions are as worthy as your musical contributions.

Wow, great photo. Reminds me of the Catskills, with the way the mountains just gently recede off into the distance.


...or the German romantic painter Casper David Friedrich (one of my faves). Here's what oily would have looked like in the 1800s...

It's either because I eat meat or his festering hillbilly bias.
