In A Roundabout Way

Recently a busy country intersection near me has been transformed from a 4 way stop to a roundabout. I'm liking it.
* Traffic is no longer backed up at the intersection
* You should only need to be concerned with traffic on your left rather than left, right and across
* If the area looses problem, because there are no lights that need to be functioning for the smooth flow of traffic.
* Roundabouts are common in Europe and you know how much I like Europe

It amazing though how many people do not know what to do when they get to one.

Photo Flashback - Who is this young man?

I'm looking through old slides from the late 70s and come across this photo. I looked like this at one time? We've got some serious hair going here. The mustache is a constant over the years although the shape and color have changed over the years. This happened to be one of my experimental photos using an orange juice container with both ends cut out and then the inside lined with aluminum foil to provide that fuzzy circle effect. This also was when I was going by Harry. Times sure change a person.
