    This was taken at 4:15 pm Tuesday 22nd Feb 2005. Out of my 6th floor office window. It shows the mountains of southern Argyllshire, Scotland.

    Outside Temp: 2C (-2 windchill)

    This is what keeps me on the during the winter and is my main inspiration.

    Post your office/workplace view.

    Nice view, I would post mine but it's a blank wall, off-white colour so not much point. I do have a skylight, but all I can see up there today is blue.

    Out of my office window,,,,,, is the Tennessee Titans training field & center. (That's an American pro-football team). Not much to look at, but sometimes their mascot comes over to our office and stirs up trouble.

    Hey Mountain Pro, do you live in a postal card?

    My view it´s not bad at all, but Scotland must be a great place to ride (on the road, please let those mountains grow slowly in peace :p )

    Not a bad guess, its the the north Arran range, Isle of Arran. The mountains are Goat Fell, Cir Mhor and Caisteal Abhail.

    Its a great ride if your into road or mtb cycling.

    I don't fancy being called Carolina Panther, is she a juicer?
    How are those straw bales stacking up, no wonder you sold me those two cows and the donkey.

    You see, thats the beauty of living in Scotland...me and 12,000 others in my town have a view like that. If you live on the west coast you will have a mountain view of some kind. We dont pay that much extra for it. Scenes like this come as standard in Scotland.
