    Re: Double triangles and signature

    Not quite sure what castle like means. 
    In my case, thick stone walls, 4 storeys high, old - true./ large - no 
    (I only have a 4 m street façade)
    
    For those of you familiar with the story of <<Tarzan>>, and think of 
    castles, I suggest you visit Greystoke Castle, its foot print is 
    sufficient for a two car garage, but is 3 stories high. I use this as a 
    comparrison for those who have never seen a real castle. In the remake 
    of the film a few years back, they used the real Roxburgh Castle as 
    Greystoke, of which two of such would fit in Roxgburgh´s great hall. 
    When they did the most recent Mary Queen of Scots film, they could not 
    use the contemporary parts of Hollyrood, as the rooms were too small to 
    have cameras, lights, and action. In the earlier (Hepburn) black and 
    white version, the grand stair case of Holyrood (should have been a 
    spiral too narrow for two to pass), would have put Buckingham Palace to 
    shame, not to mention all those actors running around in modern 
    military kilts and sets.
