Thanks for that example !

The posts are written assuming that they will be read on a PC or laptop screen.

It is actually sometimes the case that your texts are difficult to read due to the chosen font format - even on the PC/laptop. Please don't misunderstand: we absolutely want to read what you write, but without having to put on our reading glasses :lol:

Quote of the Day - 3rd August:

Quote of the Day - 3rd August - 001.jpg

He designed more than 1,000 structures over a creative period of 70 years.
He played a key role in the architectural movements of the twentieth century, influencing architects worldwide through his works & hundreds of apprentices in his Taliesin Fellowship.
He believed in designing in harmony with humanity & the environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture.
This philosophy was exemplified in Fallingwater (1935), which has been called
"the best all-time work of American architecture".
