They are some great photos. I especially like the Church of St Maccas.

I seriously did not notice that there. Is it up the drive behind the church, perhaps?

To me, it looks slightly Art Deco-ish.
Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Apparently it's some sort of downunder cult.  ;D

https://www.google.com/search?q=church+saint+maccas&client=firefox-b-1-m&sxsrf=ALeKk01EjW_0mJK3RJTgX1D8lP-9sjq1Ag:1621620788793&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiQ4M2YsNvwAhWOdd8KHc-mD-gQ_AUIBygC&biw=360&bih=517

Maccas is uniquely Australian nickname... So for one or two seconds there I thought there WAS a Saint Maccas. A rather weird saint, I say with yellow and red striped suit, red hair and nose.

Is there a relation to Saint Wendy perhaps?

Now I want to start a fast-food chain named "Burger Messiah."

We like to keep our names simple. We don't actually give people titles like Saint most of the time; we just state the bleeding obvious. That's why the rival to Maccas is called Hungry Jack's,  rather than being considered an edible monarch.[1]

[1] Actually it is because they weren't the first in Australia to call a restaurant BKing, so they had to find an alternate name.

I've read the story online. You guys missed out on having a hamburger mascot that looks like Holy Roman Emperor and King of Spain, Charles V (that's absolutely not missing out on anything, though).  ;D

Has anyone mentioned the Central Market in Budapest?  There are some excellent photographs on Wikipedia.  The place is well worth a visit, particularly for those interested in food!

Definitely on our wish list for travel, once of course one can travel without the current level of awfulness.

Interesting news report. I never knew about the timekeeping for ships (or that it was the oldest building on Brisbane).

That's an awesome building.

Here's another converted building. A converted carriage house, formerly owned by Jehova's Witnesses in Brooklyn Heights, NYC, was sold for $9.95 million


Converted old firehouse in Atlantic City, New Jersey, is offered for office space.

That is a very interesting film. I was surprised at the number of people on bicycles. Not something you tend to see in Hollywood movies. I wonder, was this more a French or Parisian thing or were bicycles quite popular on the streets of British/Italian/American cities as well?

I realise that a lot of work has been done on the film but I was also surprised at its resolution, frame rate and how stead the shots were.
