    Beautiful markets on the east (??) side of old-town (can't miss it when coming from the port)

    Warning: Don't engage the "Players" who lurk around the port, bus- and train-station (which are next to each other).
    If you want to take a taxi, ask beforehand, what the total costs are going to be (guesstimated of course)

    How i know that?
    Nutshell: Split is in my "frontyard".... I "hail" from those shores (better said: my family has its roots there some 20 miles out of Split)

    "Dubrovnik, Croatia" --> you do know, that a lot of scenes for "Game of Thrones" were filmed in Dubrovnik?
    Thanks I'll rely that info to my daughter.

    Would really like to know her thoughts/opinion, specifically Split

    Don't forget to notify the TV-Stations then.
    Would be a "blazing" Episode of Border Patrol USA....

    Hurricanes have quieted down a bit. Early in the season, though. We've had a Beryl of fun, but nothing on the horizon at this point.

    I saw a mallard with two fuzzy ducklings today. The reason that's noteworthy is that they should all have finished with nesting a long time back. I think everything generally hatches out in May, perhaps even early May.

    Those ducklings were certainly aging well.

    Went to order some stuff from Amazon UK today. Found that the minimum order value for free delivery is now £35. Ouch! Not that long ago the minimum value for free delivery was £20, then it went to £25 and now £35. When I first started to use Amazon way back when there was no minimum value for free delivery. There're trying to get every user to sign up to Prime which apart from the video service gives free next day delivery. I don't mind waiting a few days for free delivery but IMO this is bordering on extortion - get Prime or else!

    That is what prime essentially is: prepaid shipping.

    Re: Post Race!

    The National Anthem was sung a day ago at the Home Run Derby. I transcribed it exactly as performed:

    Ho, say can you see...
    By the Don's early lie,
    What so prow-hdly we hell...
    By the twilight's lass gleam-hmm,
    Hoop bripe stripes whom bripes star...,
    Thru the perulous fife,
    Oh the ramparts we wahs (asah),
    Were so gallant-ly stream-hmm,
    And the rockets red glare...
    The bombs bursting iyn air...
    Gave prue to the lice,
    That our plag was still there......
    Oh, say does dat Star-Spangled Banner-yeaht wehlyeeve...
    Or the land of the free-he-e-e-e-eee,
    Hanah ho-ome of the prave?
    I was gonna post a video of the performance, but I felt bad for the singer.

    That song is a bit of a mess to begin with. We swiped the tune from an English drinking song, one of the notes can't be reached by the average human, and it commemorates a particularly stupid battle in a particularly stupid war. We have far better songs, written by Americans about broader, more national, subjects, and which can actually be sung by the average person.

    On the other hand, the Star Spangled Banner has some epic failures. Perhaps a song that is easier to sing wouldn't have quite so many.
