Golden Miles' Dad, if you get that one before 12pm tomorrow I would not be impressed but I would name you as the "GR's Famous Architect!!"

And continue to challenge you/others if I may... But so far in my book you are the GOLDEN one!!

Night night for now.

did you know that the actual big ben bell is a rather inferior quality.

it cracked when first installed due to the clanger being too heavy as well. it had to have a section removed to stop the crack spreading.

a well made correctly tuned bell is a work of art and they still use the same methods now as 100's of years ago. albeit with the aid of technology.

Are you talking about the new one posted tonight or the one that no one could guess, the SACRE COEUR?

Honestly, Neither of them. The Statue is really difficult when you think of how many millions of churches there are with Marble statues identical to that.

But oh, well, this is still fun! So i'm going to put up my own... I'll toss you an easy one to start with.
