You too have a great weekend!

Feels like a leap of faith, this construction, but as you say, it'll probably outlive us all

Andy Rodker club has replied to Rabbitroundtheworld club
Yes, it's amazing that someone in the 15th century said, 'I know, let's build a hunting lodge in the most ridiculous place we can think of! Yes!!! Carn Brae, you know, those perilous looking rocks on the top!'
'Yeah! What a brilliant idea, O Wise One!'
And yet it worked!
