Visitin' with me Mum and the Fam and all​
me friends from University, I am happy!

Bloody well, let's start off with some snaps​
from the past! 'Ere I am at the tender age​
of 43, with me whole life ahead of me!​

PESTO "PREBYS" FARNSWORTH III, circa 1843​

This is me on me first penny farthing at me first​
job, me services provided to the neighbor'ood​
courtesy of KNOWITALL MOBILE & Co., where I​
was to ride around town and greet people for​
a shilling, then tell everyone how wrong they were​
on any and every conceivable topic known to man!​

KNOWITALL MOBILE & Co., 1881​

'Ere's me with me Lads ridin' through London​

PESTO ON HOLIDAY!
MY BLOODY ROLLICKING GOOD TIME!

Afternoon, my American Lads!​
Today I'm in one of me favorite architectural cities, Berlin!​
The beer is, of course, to die for, and what do you know -​
I've found meself on top of a traffic signal directional post​
taking pictures of what the young people call Love Parade!

I took this picture below because of the atmosphere in it,​
but also because of the sign that directs one to, say it with me,​
POTSDAMER PLATZ! One of me all time favorite town squares!



It would do one good, and I'm speaking to you, Los Angeleeez,​
to mirror your architectural style after Berlin's Potsdamer Platz!

Ere's another of me pics to illustrate the point!​
Till I teach again,
Pesto!​

(ps: Spend anymore time 'ere with me Wife,
and she may end up in the pudding club!
Know what I mean! Penny for a gumball?
Bob's your Uncle? No? ............. bugger.)

Hey, I had no idea this thread was here until today. If you're still bored, you might want to toss in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Istanbul and central Frankfurt (excluding the financial district) among my favorite cities. Walkable, organic, diverse, eye-catching with a deep respect for architectural style and human size (practically no skyscrapers).

You catch the look of Potsdamer Platz but you have to add about 10 large eating/drinking areas on the inside and others facing the sidewalk on the outside. The dome pulls it all together (like Lebowski's rug) and creates a sense of being somewhere. It has its faults and some differences due to frequent cold and rainy weather, but you don't need to include them.

It will be interesting to compare it to Fig from Olympic to Pico in a few years. That area can still be made a gem, but it will require work from what is proposed now.

I call bullshit, Pest!
These entries were posted to your website WHILE you were
on vacation. Check the dates. I merely re-posted them here.
