Well I did find that some smart people do live around here...this is one of the best billboards I have ever seen and its right down town!!! If you can't see it very well let me know I will send you the full size one...I laughed out loud on the street and looked like a mad man.
Here is a picture of the Greek Orthodox church here in Manchester...not nearly as impressive in this picture as it is in real life...a very unique building...and it is graced with the name of not only my favorite kind of whiskey that I like to share with Larry but one of my good friends.
If you can't read it and you don't know me it does say St. George. Miss you guys (Larry and George)
One of the first things I did when I got to Manchester was to go to the library and find out what I needed to do to get a card...on my way back I saw this statue and the side I was walking up to was a someone caped and hooded...that picture didn't come out but these did.The crazy thing was this was homeless/student park central and the fertilizer just to the right of the next picture was on fire and I had to put it out because nobody else seemed to care or want to do anything...I saw FLAMES...and kids were playing right by it...odd.

The real funny thing is that the whole basement is painted in New England Patriots colors and there is a urinal in the bathroom...don't think that's going to find much use. The good thing is I was so tired from my flight that I fell asleep as soon as I got here at midnight and woke up at seven so I am already used to the time change. The next day Margaret and I got up early because Margaret had a savate match (french kick boxing). I would show you a picture of Margaret but due to the nasty french outfit you have to wear in this sport (almost full body spandex) Margaret would kill me if I put that picture on the Internet but I do have some of the guys fighting for you.
Then that night we drove about an hour away and watched two of Margarets gym members in some boxing matches, one at heavy weight and the other super heavy weight...sadly they didn't win :(
Today I went and took a walk around town to get an idea of where stuff is and how long its going to take me to walk around everywhere. I found that it takes me about an hour for me to walk from home to the university which is downtown. I also witnessed some really interesting sites. These first two pictures are for you if anyone tells you Manchester is as nice as SB.
Nice town...caring...see the charity? How about the crack pipe?
I found what appears to be the lamest park...EVER. I see how the rough streets of Manchester look like the war in Iraq...and trust me I know this is in bad taste but the picture turned out so well I had to. and I guess the city of Manchester decided to save money by laying off the public works people in town and removing all the trash cans so they didn't have to have someone empty them.But at least I have this great way to remind me where the people I love are...I hope life is great in Cali cuz its looking grim here...not the New England I was hoping for.
