    1. Oh, yes, the old tower is what we had in the small Minnesota town we grew up in. I know they are not as efficient but I still prefer them.

  2. Interesting to see. We don't have anything like that in UK. I come from a city called Carlisle in the North West of England, near our Lake District.

  3. This Carlisle is named after Carlisle, Pennsylvania, which was named after Carlisle in Cumbria...your city?

    1. Yes, that's the one. It's only about 15 miles from the Scottish border. The first large village/small town over the border is Gretna Green, where for years eloping young couples went to be married, without their parents permission (often the parent's were in hot pursuit, trying to stop the marriage).

    2. Interesting how folks named towns for the ones they left behind.
      Nice to hear from you.
