y'all come on in folks Starting up our new one, well on our way to 1000....celebration time then. https://goo.gl/images/sgnK2Z Someone pls post the pic if ya can..it's a little garden corner. Sun - we lived in india till I was around 18.. I came here because someone got me a job and we really needed the money. I had to drop,out of college. I may hv been given short shrift on a lot of things but where I grew up? Oh, boy did I luck out. It was beautiful. If you google Dr Grahams Homes School, and press images the whole school comes up. It was more like a village and it's said it is only two of the kind in india which is spread across a whole estate with buildings allocated all over for hospital, clothiers, church, science lab, swimming pool and of course an English cottage like house for housing kids...20 of them with its own tool shed, kitchen, garden.I was a boarder for three years and the hall of our cottage was so narrow, two very slim,people could fit in only, it was all made of wood and I have no idea how no fire caught.. Our grade six classroom was located on the edge of the mountain facing the mt. Kanchenjunga and it was a sight to see them the windows in the winter..especially sunset with red staining the entire scene. I love the image of you in yr flowery dress and woven bag..very holiday. I'm sure you have a pair of strappy sandals to complete the outfit? That man with the great attitude, he had kind of enough I think, his house was average, with an upstairs and terrace, downstairs, kitchen.. they were basically farmers generation, they had land to build on...they had the basics, gas cylinder, TV, fan, a little three wheeler to ride around with his family, all necessary furniture, sent their kids to school...which is why I was so impressed at his stoic acceptance of different living method. Granni - I always pray I get science and mathematics brains too if come back again in another lifetime..I feel life gets so much easier if one is adept at those practical things..I am a duffer in those. Mikie - in our language condo means bum (anatomy) so condo Ville?...... I'm glad you feel a little better. Julie - thank you for posting the picture of my school and the Internet garden picture. In the picture on the right side of the big field looking into greenery is where the 6th grade classes were. As you can see, it just perches on top of the hill and looks out over to the mountains and the river Teesta below. On the other side of the river valley is perched the town of Darjeeling..tea capital of the world once.I also need to clean my fridge but then I need to do so much else...vexation, vexation..I'm thrilled Lyndsey has success with muscle testing. It must make things so much easier.
