True, but it is not an observatory. There are, at least, five in NJ. http://www.go-astronomy.com/observat...e.php?State=NJ

Roger.
I ask because I get this when I look up the true meaning of the word:

observatory

/əbˈzərvəˌtrē/



Noun


1.A room or building housing a telescope or other scientific equipment for the study of natural phenomena.
2.A position or building affording an extensive view



I was thinking # 2

Observing from fire tower

OK, how about this, a fire tower or such is acceptable IF you also include a picture (from inside the room) of sighting equipment in the room at the top.

No bike needed for the equipment shot. Your bike only needs be in the outside shot of the tower.

I have no issue with pot stirring (I have done PLENTY!), but have been slacking in the department lately .

1 - Bee hives, the type bee keepers use. I am sure we have all seen them around.




2 - A "wrong way" or "do not enter" road sign



3 - An American Legion post.



4 - A truck scale / weigh station .



5 - An Observatory.



For clarification --observatory /əbˈzərvəˌtrē/
Noun - A room or building housing a telescope or other scientific equipment for the study of natural phenomena.

6 - A Motel 6



7 - A make of car that is no longer made. Such as AMC, Chrysler, Mercury........ A twofer




File photo item, as it is spring now, is a packet of seeds.

I don't think his list was meant to be all inclusive. JJ would have been fine.

The next 7

We riding Flugistanis celebrate the onset of April as the time when we can start regularly riding w/o electrics- as I did for the first time this year.

But people celebrate all sorts of things in April-- so celebrate with them and pick out 7 themes to creatively tag from these monthly and weekly observances.

Month:

National Humor Month
International Guitar Month
Keep America Beautiful Month
Lawn and Garden Month
National Poetry Month
National Pecan Month
National Welding Month
Records and Information Management Month
Stress Awareness Month
Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Weekly Celebrations:

Week 1 Library Week
Week 1 Read a Road Map Week.
Week 2 Garden Week
Week 3 Organize Your Files Week
Week 3 Medical Labs Week
Week 4 Administrative Assistants Week
Week 4 National Karaoke Week


Glove on the left side mirror is fine for the anti-file.
