What? Was that too much? Would you have preferred if I asked if it got a bit cool?

Hi Rod
At times like this I am truly blessed. Last night I was unhappy that my team is out of the World Cup. this morning I'm pleased that my team has won and is now standing a chance to win the World Cup. It pays to have dual citizenship!

Kind regards,
Mark



Sorry to say, but I hope your team retires from the world cup with the honourable position of 2nd, behind mine! (Who sent your other team home.)

I guess this is proof that you guys up-over indeed cannot be down-under. Unless the Netherlands have moved down. Or was that up?

Anyways...

That's nothing - in Germany we construct bridges for canals to cross rivers

I have been waiting for the announcement of the k3 for some time.Now that the camera is out and seeing the pics and seeing "ricoh on the back of the screen turns me off.Only a matter of time before we see Ricoh on the front of the camera.I think ricoh just shot themselves in the foot.My reasoning behind this is I make a living in photography.I shoot lots of weddings and It seems more people ask on what camera I'am using.I have had quite a few people turn me down because I shoot with pentax.They just know canon and nikon.I l was turned down on other major sporting events because I shoot with Pentax.This all happened a few years back and I will admit that some people are starting to recognize that pentax can keep up with the big guys.If Ricoh puts their name in front of the camera I feel it will throw them back to the dark ages..I'am quite happy with my k5s and all my pentax glass and will continue to shoot pentax,but hesitating to by new equiptment because of this matter.I do also own nikon and canon slr's but I'am a pentaxian and as long as it says Pentax on the front of the camera I'am happy.

Mod disclaimer: this thread has turned into a humorous discussion and it no longer reflects facts about the Pentax K-3 DSLR. Enter and post at your own risk, and have fun!
i want to buy it.

In the dry lands east of here irrigation canals frequently bridge all sorts of things, though the hociR might wish otherwise.

A genetic drive to engineer and the need for an outlet? Germans don't need excuses to build, design or construct stuff

Been crossing rives with canals since 1823 here in Rochester, NY. This is the Eire Canal crossing the Genesee river. The bridge is still in use today but now carries motor vehicles.

Is that close to E Main St, or the library or Court St?


I feel I remember seeing a bridge like that in that area when I was there 10 years ago.

Grant Elliot would think the same, Mark.

He must also be grateful for the gift-wrapped length ball Dale Steyn sent down, with accompanying card saying "Please despatch me into the crowd".

A wonderful game. Hope that in years to come it's seen as that, not just remembered as a heartbreaker.

The aqueduct is now the Court Street Bridge. The traffic deck on the present bridge covers an old abandoned subway track which is still there. The subway track is actually the bottom of he old canal bed.
