    We are in the same time zone, so me thinks it would be.
    The Fixed Time World Clock - and yes, Philadelphia is the same, Don.:thumbup:

    Hey, a coffee cup (especially if it's an Anthora cup) and a piece of toast would be just fine.

    i have one in glazed stoneware hand painted handle-less "mug" to simulate that iconic paper cup made by "mud" a ny based ceramic studio , wish i knew where its gone to .....

    the new ones are printed ..sadly


    i didnt know it had a proper name , in ny we simply refered to it as "that ubiquitous blue and white paper cup that every Greek greasy spoon diner seems to use" .... or something to that effect

    MU-43.com members photos!

    Lisa, thanks for this entry of yours - it's very endearing. Sorry I'm a bit slow in finding this thread again.

    Well they're have not finished yet but look at this photo I found From Many Instants, a Moment - Lens Blog - NYTimes.com number 4 - I know someone here on our forum posted this because I saw it here first!:biggrin: There may well be more, but I just was trying to check up on where the project stood and found the latest entry in the Lens Blog from yesterday.

    If anyone else recognizes this photo - it would be fun to know who took it. The caption reads that it was taken by someone in Sheffield, England and the photographer wrote "I wasn't sure what I will take a picture of so I just sat on a bench and then this family took my attention." Who took this photo?

    And here's another from one of our members: #7 the closeup of the praying mantis! I recognized this one too! And I believe a third #8. And a fourth #10 from Miami... These are either from members here or from some people I have as contacts on Flickr. Maybe I'm getting carried away but I am pretty sure I've seen at least two of these photos here.:popcorm2:
