The Milan's cathedral: Il Duomo

Started in the 14th century and still under construction after over 500 years, remember this 12 days from now.

God bless us all.

That is a beautiful cathedral but to be honest I find more peace on a pristine body of water at sunrise or a crisp fall day in the woods. Now I'm not against churches I sing in the choir and spend probably 5 hours a week in one. I just feel a lot more spirtual in the outdoors.

What ever works for you is what works for you. I'll agree that watching the sunrise over a flock of decoys, or the smell of a bon fire on a cool autum evening, or sitting on the ice watching the sunset with a line in the water is about as close to Heaven on Earth a guy can get.

Valv, when I was in the Navy and travelling all over the place, I saw this cathedreal. It's awe inspiring to say the least.

I don't understand the 12 days from now thing. Please explain.

9-11? Sadly, I had to think about it for a while. "Never forget".

I agree Val, we saw the Duomo and a number of other cathedrals of equal majesty when we were in Europe last year. They truly are amazing buildings. Its hard to even comprehend all of the history that has happened in and around many of these beautiful churches.

    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
