Which windmill Percy? I a curious.
Many windmills are crying out for qualified millers. I nearly took the course myself when my town re-built it's windmill, but they were so cliquey here I didn't bother in the end.

4pm is midnight here. I don't know where you live but if I ever make it back to the US it probably be a trip to the south for my Blues loving DH, so it is unlikely you will ever have to pay out the prize .
I'd love to spend my full 90 days in the US touring and seeing as much as I could, but I think we are probably sticking to Europe from now on.
If you make it over here let me know - I can get into Amsterdam fairly easily. I'll buy lunch .

9. You can go for lunch at this famous museum in Paris , but call ahead as it is only open to the public one day a week. Name the Museum.>

I would have gotten this right probably but I thought you meant the museum was only open one day a week - which sounded strange to me!

Great quiz percy.

Annhig - take your time - no pressure - this is for fun!

hetismij2.
I was in Kinderjik (spelling) last year with a tour guide from Delft, she lives in Delft,and she told me about Windmill problem.

I live in Canada....so chances are better that I would be in your area before you would be here.
Hmmmmm....lunch sound good.

Ah, maybe in Kinderdijk there is a waiting list for the mills. As I said many places are struggling to find millers. You have to have a qualification to operate the mills here.

Canada is a big country. Still on my wish list, though DH isn't so bothered having been to several places from Newfoundland to BC, and lots in between. That is a downside of a husband who travelled a lot for work.
