Not just the pond; people don't seem to realize that many US colleges have the same acronyms as well. Whicn U of M were you talking about? The one in Michigan, or the one that hosted Unicon VII?

Better to use the post count; you can set your browser to view different numbers of posts per page. Mine is set at 50.

Have you tried Googling "DIA"? Defense Intelligence Agency is on the first page, but Detroit Institute of arts came up for me on the second.

Anyway, sorry about the threadjack. It indeed is a cool place; when I was a kid my family went to see classic old movies at the theater in the back, and in 1979-81 I went to the art school that's behind the museum.

I had that happen to me too. There was a whole group of them on the bicycle path here in the forest. I figured if they would just lay there, I could ride in between, but one cow was very panicked and jumped up and crossed right in front of my uni, making me upd. There rest of the way I walked quietly passed them. Only the bull kept its ground and wouldn't move.

Couple of photos from my trip out today. Nothing fancy, just a few dirt tracks

The last one is of particular interest as it's part of a new cycle track that links the pub across the road from me to an older bike path that takes me all the way to the next town without going on any roads. The older path is awesome but it, rather pointlessly, means riding on about a mile of main road to get onto it, so the new bit opened here now allows me to get on it without any roads!

My 11-year-old rides a giraffe for the first time (he's been riding since he was 7), and my 6-year-old is still learning to ride (he likes to hold the bike rack on my car when practicing).
