Over the past few months, I have forwarded some inappropriate pictures and jokes to friends who I thought shared the same sense of humour.
Unfortunately, this was not the case and I seem to have upset quite a few people who have accused me of being sexist and shallow.
If you were one of these people, please accept my sincerest apologies. From now on I will only post or send email with a cultural or educational content such as old monuments, nature and other interesting topics.
Below is a picture of the Pont Neuf Bridge in Paris. It is the oldest bridge in Paris, took 26 years to build, and completed in 1604.
“Glengallan Homestead, built 1867-1868, is located on the southwestern slope of Mount Marshall at the mouth of a wide valley, running west from Cunningham’s Gap, near the junction of the Cunningham and New England Highways approximately 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) north of Warwick.
This valley was the original Darling Downs, discovered and named by explorer Allan Cunningham (1791-1839) in 1827 in honour of the Governor of New South Wales, Sir Ralph Darling (1775-1858), and the name Darling Downs was later used to identify the surrounding region of open rolling country with rich and deep soils. Cunningham found a gap in the dividing range, and the following year, while visiting Moreton Bay, he found a gap which he thought was the same one he had discovered previously, and which became known as Cunningham’s Gap.” Please go to Glengallan Homestead Wikipedia for the story.
