My father's mother in the middle circa 1915. Two people have accused me of buying the frame and not taking out the picture that came with it.

Re: If you dare, post pictures you took

Does scanning count as taking a picture? If so this can fit here.

This is a North Korean propaganda pamphlet that was dropped on us in 1989 or 1990. Kim Il Sung was still alive at that time, and was trying to position Kim Jung Il as his successor.

I was in Suwon when this happened. They caught the wind right, and few weather baloons down where these would be dropped on us one night. The next morning, when they were scattered around, I was appointed to lead a group to police up the pamphlets and turn them in to be burned. It was illegal in Korea to be in possession of these, or so we were told - I never had that confirmed to me by anyone who I trusted to be in the know. Whether it was illegal or not, we were sent to gather these up and have them burned. Somehow, a couple of them got sent to my parents to keep as a souvenir, at least until I got to go there and collect one. They faded pretty quickly, but when I did get back, I laminated it so it would keep better as a souvenir. I still have it .



The man in the glasses on the pictures on the back is Kim Il Sung.



The tower in the picture is the Juche Tower in Pyeongyong. The front of the pamphet uses great, swelling and glowing words to talk about the philosophy that was founded by their great hero Kim Il Sung, and perfected by their Dear Leader Kim Jung Il, and how the Juche tower was built to forever symbolize this. It then launches into descriptions of the dimensions of the tower and the flame at the top. The laguage used is really over the top. Some of the back I have a little trouble reading because of the fading.

Whatever the intent of their advertising, I don't think any of us were really convinced of any great accomplishment or progress in North Korea, and I don't think it stirred any desire in any of us to join thier side or their cause

Re: If you dare, post pictures you took

These are some big Zucchinis. If anyone ever asks you if you've ever seen a big zucchini, and you're not sure what "Big" means when it comes to zucchinis, just remember these. These are in Shanghai.



(I'm having some "Great Firewall" problems tonight. My normal way of getting to where these pics are posted isn't working, so I'm posting these semi-blind. I can see that they're there and can get the URL, but I can't see them when I post them here ... and ... never mind. It's a mess to explain. I'll get an easier way figured out ... )

OMG, love it, it being a supermarket in another country. I always try to go to supermarket when time permits. I find it fascinating, so similar yet so different.

I know Mons is beer. What kind of bevs are to the right of it?

Re: If you dare, post pictures you took

LOL ... I didn't even notice that behind there . To the right, the first set of bottles (Square, green and yellow) are green tea with either lemon or lime in it. I also see bottles of orange juice, and I'm not sure what the dark colored liquid in the red bottles are. It probably some other kind of fruit juice.

EDIT: Looking again, if that dark liquid is the same thing as is in the boxes below it, it is tea ... but I'm trying to figure out what kind. The first character means "Icy" and the last character means "Tea" and the middle character looks kind of like "red" but it's not "red," so I don't really know what kind of tea.

Re: If you dare, post pictures you took

A coworker asked Mrs P for a picture of our track lights. I have no idea why. But in sticking with the theme of the thread.

Enjoyed watching these little guys at the local Duck Inn restaurant out the window at our dinner table. They were quite the dinner entertainment.
