Guessed,

Didn't know what you were talking about, so did a Google search. I've certainly heard of "Chicago" but never knew they originally called themselves "CTA" -- so I've learned somethin' today.

Meanwhile, am hoping to persuade Sven to go to Aberyst with me... (via the ferry)

Surely you were jesting at not Knowing about the band formerly known as Chicago Transit Authority or was this oblique critique?

Dare I bring in a note of Music with Chicago Transit Authority

Guessed, am puzzled... what's the connection between the CTA and music? (You weren't thinking of the MTA --
"He may ride forever neath the streets of Boston" -- were you?)

Gray D, if you're thinking along those lines, I suggest "Daggers" (i.e. Dagenham) Station -- via the Thatcher Connection.

note for non-UK residents: "Daggers" was the nickname for Maggie Thatcher (towards the end of her "reign")
cos Dagenham is "just two stops short of Barking!"
)


On to the serious business at hand...
          taking advantage of the provisional Rover stipulations:

Isidis Planitia (via the "Beagle" Line extension)

...gee, it's dark down here...

I have been lucky enough to enjoy many trips on the underground with the beautiful Samantha, but one of my favorite memories was a southbound journey on the Northern Line. It was a beautiful sunny day and one minute we were streaking and flashing out of Golders Green and then I was shooting into that dark deep mysterious portal that leads to Hampstead and onwards to

Belsize Park.
