Zibi, please. I don`t know what to say. :):)

But yes, when it comes to do small repairs at home, I can manage. :):):)

Far too easy.

You are too intelligent. :):):)

Do they have Home Depot in your town?

What is that?

What is that?

They are a US Chain (with locations in Canada) of home improvement stores. They sponsor an Orange Car in Nascar.

They often race against a competing Blue Car.

Blue Car

I myself prefer the blue car and the blue company. They have a better product variety, and their stores are newer.

Yes, many in Poland but their name is Castorama, German origin. I bought this stuff there, at an outlet near me:

Hey, Mr Professor Shawn, you force me to do a lot of googling! Aren`t you too demanding for our capabilities??? That is unfair.... ::):):)

I am not forcing you, it is a choice you make. Shouldn't you be fixing the ceiling before the best woman in the world gets on your case?

This should be an easy one for a History Buff like yourself. It is in Poland, not Lithuania or Litwa.

It is a pleasant choice and joyful enforcement! Thanks for everything! :)

Ok, let`s use Sherlock Holmes` deduction method. What can we see on the bell? A guy`s head wearing a beret... below, the sign of Fighting Poland and Cross of Valour. Hmmm......

Hint: his name is Tony.

No need for it. I had already guessed the bell image presents one of the guys who started Warsaw Uprising. His beret gave it away, also depicted in my favourite rock clip about the Rising, at 2:37:

So where is the bell?

That is a piece of cake:

typing dzwon antoni chruściel costs 2 seconds

and here you are:
monter.przeworsk.com.pl/node/32

Final answer is: Museum of Warsaw Uprising, bell image in honour to Antoni Chruściel, commander in Warsaw Uprising.

Can I get a point????

You get a point.

Edit: make that two points because you found the photo upon which image on the bell was created!

When/where can you meet such pretty ladies in Krakow?

Based on a review of the picture, one can find a person dressed in a German uniform behind the couple walking away from the photographer and could then surmise that she was a part of a re-enactment, as there are likely no longer active German forces garrisoned in Krakow. If one were to google re-enactments taking place in Krakow, one would find a picture dated June 26th, 2010.

One could assume then that the re-enactment takes place annually on the last weekend in June as part of the Aircraft Picknick, in Krakow.

Ergo, she would be a participant in a re-enactment of the invasion of Poland.

Yes! Point.

If you say so. I am not such an expert.

So, let`s see more re-enactment groups from today - guess times, nationalities, units. Or whatever you can :

guess times, nationalities, units. Or whatever you can

you said yesterday you could see planes from where you live and that you wouldn't probably go. So my guess is they were taken some time today. Their nationality would likely be Polish, and they are young people.

We went after all.

So my guess is they were taken some time today.

I just said it, You can see the freshest photos from 9th Air Picnic in Krakow.

Their nationality would likely be Polish, and they are young people.

We are talking about re-enactment group.

So, let`s see more re-enactment groups from today - guess times, nationalities, units. Or whatever you can :

So, which period and where?
