Congratulations Malcolm. You are correct on 2 of your 2 answers. But you didn't answer the one concerning the depot.

And t12, your answer "HUB" is wrong. Think real hard and try again.

And congratulations to you Lynn. "Photographed" is correct.

And by the way, I liked the other color much better than the one they're painting it now. The other one was beautiful but the new one just doesn't appeal to me. Why fix something that ain't broke? Then on the other hand I'm sure there are those that feel the new color looks better. You know the old saying about opinions.
