A beautiful day to be in the garden and having a few drinks with friends.
Some have lots of remotes in their living room. I have lots of keyboards.
The small town of Dolceacqua has been around since at least the 4th century BCE. The old town is fortified and has a remains of a fortress atop the hill which the town rests. There is also a large cathedral at its base. The old town is rather small and can be walked in about 30 minutes. However, the real beauty of the town is where it lies upon the adjacent river. It is a marvel to witness and only about 30 minutes from the French border.
A few weeks ago I went to Hampton Beach, NH, which is a very busy place during the Summer. It is a small town, but has a long beach and the roadway is lined with little shops selling food and little trinkets. What is unique is there is also a casino and several clubs that play live music. Spring will give way to Summer soon enough and the beach will be full again.
I bought Windows 8 on the day it was released, but had to wait a few days before installing the operating system. I have read reviews about Windows 8 and the new look and feel and Microsoft's attempt to combine the desktop and the portable market, whether it be a smartphone, tablet or something else. I have now had amble time to try to decode Windows 8 and I am not impressed at all.
Zagreb is a fascinating city that is split into upper and lower parts. The city is extremely walkable and has lots of modern amenities. The upper city contains the seat of power, which surrounds St. Mark's church. The lower city contains an amazing cathedral, open air markets and lots of cafes along with beautiful public squares. The lower part of the city is divided by the Sava river, with the old town on one side and the new town on the other. The new town is not as interesting, as it is more residential and contains large shopping malls and more modern buildings.
