At another forum that I'm a part-time participant at there is a tradition of posting scantily clad women whenever you reach certain posting milestones. I don't know why, that's just the tradition. I didn't think that'd go over too well here, so instead of "hot womenz" I bring you some of my favorite pictures of church architecture...







And for a modern Church, here's St. Innocent Mission (OCA) in Macon Georgia...

I had to post on this forum for 7 years to get to 5,000 posts... and then it took me only a little over 2 months to get to 6,000.  :angel:

Very nice. I do like the last one. I think it is great that they built a Georgian style church in the state of Georgia; seems appropriate.

Congrats on 5000+ posts, Asteriktos! And I too had noticed Αριστοκλής' silence of late and hope that he is okay.

Everyone certainly has differing tastes, and it's interesting that you find these buildings attractive, because I find them rather cold, ominous and barn-like.

Indeed we differ! I saw firm, clean lines, an imposing structure that has strong rock-like characteristics. Even the smaller one is a model of simplicity.

LOL. I know-I'm sure I'm the odd one out! I prefer the fairytale-like wooden churches of the Carpathians and the gold cupolas and fanciful designs of the churches of the  Slavic countries to these structures which appear to me ominous and forbidding.

Hey, I was in 10th place before the OP stormed out of nowhere and reclaimed his spot.  Now I'm trying to slow down my posting average to 8, maybe 7 posts per day.

With his 500 post per month average, he'll be with the leaders in no time.  ;D
