how  could I forget?

No problem at all, Dave !

I know you are busy organising this get-together, it's time consuming and in addition, you have to manage your exhibition... ;)

So, now, I just sent my contribution via Paypal.

Cheers, Francis.

Nice action, Bent. Looks pretty cold.
It was -10 centigrade, but nearly no wind, so it was ok.

Some of the results that we see from architects are simply "because they can", without regard to taste. That has been confirmed to me by a successful architect that we both know....

Here in Arizona, we have examples from Frank Lloyd Wright. an architect that has enjoyed many accolades over some of his designs. While I have nothing against Wright, his design of the Gammage Auditorium is a yawner IMO. I don't see anything particularly wrong with it, except that I don't like that look.  ;)

Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the most famous foreign architect in Japan due to his design for the (now demolished) Imperial Hotel.  Its design was not bad, but the Gammage Auditorium looks like a not-so-nice copy of Colosseo in Rome...

Yes, I definitely want to come.
However, I need to know whether I am allowed to stay with my van in the premises or be charged separately ?

I'm so sorry, Francis - how  could I forget?  I am sure your van will be ok in the grounds of the lodge - we will have quite a few vehicles there. I will add you to the list immediately, and then if our one "maybe" becomes definite, then we have filled our max. of 14 places. My feeling now about payments is that everyone should pay the same and if they want to make some different arrangements, that is their decision. Already there are many differences in what people are planning - Bent and Gunver will arrive two days late; Bruno is thinking of bringing a tent, also Robert; some single men will get a room alone, some will have to share; 2 will have to sleep on settees in the main room; 3 will have to occupy a large residential caravan which is more expensive per person but will separate these three from the group to some extent; who could work out what is fair to every person? Better just all pay the same.

However, if the participants think fairer individual shares can be calculated I will go along with whatever the group decide. And in any case I am intending that we will have a final adjustment of payments after we are all in the lodge - by that time I will have paid advances of over £640 to the owners and I wll want to get my money back.   ;)

I feel I hardly had enough time and I’m inspired to return more often.

Your return shall be welcomed at any time.

More concrete. This is the last of 12 large concrete pours (around 30,000 cubic meters total). Typically a concrete pump is used to deliver the concrete where it is needed (see operator on right side of photo), but it is all manual from that point onward.
