Sex wins!
Quote:MADRID, June 9 (UPI) -- The Spanish parliament lifted a ban on advertising sexual services in print ads and online because of the economic recession.
Imagine that in a country so Roman Catholic as Spain... Big Grin

I think I may go to Spain soon. Anything that puts a thumb in the eye of the Catholic Church you have to love.

History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a
free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance, of which their
political as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their
own purpose. ~ Thomas Jefferson

You'll love the churches converted to posh apartment buildings. Big Grin More everyday in Europe.

Beautiful, characteristic, imposing, sometimes centuries old churches that have never been in better condition, on the outside! Very spacious luxury 21st century apartments with all the modcons, including elevators, on the inside.

RE: Sex wins!
Sex always wins.

Also I would love to live in an old church. I hate church itself but the buildings sometimes have really nice architectural details. There is this one church in the last city I lived in that was fairly new but didn't look like it. They went old school with the design, and it was gorgeous. I had to go inside just once. My skin burned a little but that is to be expected.

I loved the old ones in the UK too. York was great. The stained glass knocked my socks off. The stone carving was out of this world. I carve wood and stone and loved it. I was in love with the craftsmanship and detail work. It must have took years on one piece of a stone.

I hate seeing some of the old stonework crumbling though Sad The really old statues on some of the cathedrals are just stumps when they must have been totally amazing when they were first carved.

Yes, it's distressing; pollution has really taken it's toll on amazing works of craftsmanship and art. There are entire ruins in Greece that have been all but obliterated by acid rain and pollution. Rome has attempted to restore some of their treasures and they've even moved some indoors to climate controlled environments.
There's a lot of damage to deal with, especially in the larger metropolitan cities.

Art is indeed transitory. Shy

There - there, it'll be ok; you'll be long dead before any of them are completely gone. Sleepy


Undecided That's ok, right?
