Sedans, one of the list items, have sparked a surprising amount of discussion, mostly over how one defines them — pointing to the mix of international participants who have signed on.

We took a walk to visit some sheep at the end of the street. I like this treasure hunt.
Rounding out the update on “From Here to There”: a couple of submissions that have people checking “amateur painting” off the list:
