one of my favourite questions to all the kids that were always at our house was, where would you get water if there was an earthquake and it stopped coming out of the tap?

.

One of my favourite questions to ask the kids that were always at our house was: "Hey, do you all want to skip school tomorrow and go to Walt Disney World?"

.

Funny... they were never at a complete loss for an answer.

.

The closest Walt Disney World is 183 miles away. No problem for a family sedan with a full tank of gasoline (or a rented minivan if there were too many kids).

.

TOP OF THE PAGE: It only seems fitting for me to treat everyone to a HURRICANE!

.

.

Enjoy!

Just give me a straight rum.  Hurricanes are pretty sweet for me!

Absolutely! I just hope you like spicy foods!

Spicy food washed down with nectar from the local grapes, trains, and side visits to the Spanish and Portuguese Air Force museums, what’s not to like about that!!!DinnerBig Smile

Well then. If no one has any objections I will provide ample Spanish information of interest in September's diner!

I'm beginning to realize that Windows 10 and sound decoders have a lot in common. There are so many things you have to change in order to get them to work the way you want.

I know it is not actually part of Spain, but Gibralter once had an extensive rail network to serve the waterfront.

.

There were lots of tunnels and interesting trackwork to gain the elevation from the waterfront to the top of the rock. I do not know much about it. These rail networks have only been mentioned in passing in histories that I have read.

    — and I'll open the diner since I'm usually up 'til the wee hours of the morning.

See you in September!

Since the song is now worming into my brain I'll share it with the rest of the Diner!

I picked this version since there's a railroad scene at 0:35. Enjoy!

Regards, Ed

Thanks Ed.

I have never opened the diner, and I never intend to. I am more of a Weekend Photo Fun opening kind of person.
