Still Alive and Kicking

But the computer wasn't!  We got moved into the new house and the old iMac promptly died, leaving us computerless more or less for the last two weeks.  In addition the hard drive could not be salvaged so we lost everything and I'm still downloading all of my stored photos off of Flickr - time consuming when there are 10,000+ of them! :)

In the meantime a photo of the Asian gardens - new at the Jacksonville Zoo - to help keep us all calm and relaxed.

EPCOT: Part 7 - World Showcase: Canada

One of the prettier pavilions in the EPCOT World Showcase is the first one you come across if you turn right upon leaving Future World: Canada.

Featuring a beautiful garden, a mountain, waterfall, rapids/creek, Quebecian castle, Yukon lodge, totem poles... all sorts of treats for the eyes.

And for many it would not be Canada without Moosehead lager.  I just liked the way the sunlight was shining through it, though I have had it in cheddar cheese soup at the Canadian restaurant "Le Cellier" it is gooooooooooood stuff.

EPCOT: Part 5 - Spaceship Earth the Ride

One of our favorite rides in EPCOT is inside the giant golf ball, Spaceship Earth.  A history of communication from the cave men up to modern interactive computers.  Slow, relaxing, interesting, informative, and a great way to stretch the back a little (on the way back down) after walking around all day! :)
