Architects and Knights Templar – Astorga to Ponferrada

Start by doing what is necessary; then do what is possible; then suddenly you are doing the impossible. Saint Francis of Assisi

We have had a great week of walking and touring.  A little less rain and many interesting places to visit, most notably in Astorga and Panferrada.  Astorga was a great stop for us as we were again surrounded by great architecture including the Bishop’s Palace designed by the famous Spanish Architect Antonini Gaudi.

We stayed the night at the Astur Plaza Hotel on Plaza Mayor.

Cool spot outside our hotel.

We spent a little time exploring after our arrival and visited the cathedral ……

This quote reminded us of Ponferrada, Spain which was home to the Knights Templar Castle.

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  35. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  37. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  38. I are asking for my mother. The lady doesn’t necessarily make money away them, her purpose is to use her blog (once popular) and use it as references to possibly help her get a newspaper article. She has a title for one called “Answers to Life’s Problems”. Exactly where can the girl post websites and they gain popularity? She published it currently on WordPress but you will find 3 mil people posting blogs hers gets lost in the mix. Any suggestions?.

  39. I have a degree in psychology, which I have found to be useless. And I am planning on returning to college and getting a Masters in Creative Composing, because I enjoy writing and would love to find out more techniques to make myself a better writer. I am concerned, however , this degree is not going to open up many doors when it comes to the job market (just because my mindset degree is unsucssesful to do). Any thoughts? Thank you..

  40. In Opera I normally use right-click > “Open in new tab” when browsing web pages. This can also be done when simply clicking a save… Is there any way to obtain Firefox to do this automatically (by default) when left-clicking a bookmark rather than having to the actual right click?.

  41. Whenever I actually open opera, it instantly crashes. I have tried starting it in safe setting and still it will not work. We even attempted changing my homepage. When my friends give me a hyperlink in my msn messenger, it opens up opera and functions fine, I am able to browse the internet normally. What do I do? We already un-installed and reinstalled it..

  44. For my Creative Composing class we have to write a brief story, I truly want to write some thing along the lines of Columbine, but I’m worried about the reaction of my teacher.
