Working Windmill. Did you know: If the sails of the windmill are left in a "+" position, the miller is away temporarily. If they are left in an "x" position, he is away indefinitely.

A fine clear image - looks like it was a wonderful day - the x + thing is an invite to thieves.

No, I didn't know that! Where is this windmill?

The windmill is in Holland, Michigan.

Ian, true, true ... hmmm so maybe I won't put a windmill in our front yard...Instant Messenger "away" messages are so much easier and private. Another trivia fact: Windmills were built in the Netherlands primarily to pump water out of Holland, which like New Orleans, lies below sea level.

That's fantastic information about windmills. Where did you take this?
