Subject: The Falkirk Wheel (Canal Boating in Scotland)
Hi all,

In last Saturday's Wall Street Journal there was an article about a fascinating device that was built in Falkirk, Scotland to serve as a boat lift to connect a couple of canals. Eleven locks were replaced by this space age/modernistic sculpture called the Falkirk Wheel.

If you want to see something truly amazing go to or for an animation of the wheel in action try

I've got to get up there to see this thing in action!
