We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Wow. 400 tons of ice, and all for a project that's only going to last a few months. Now that's artistic dedication. I thought the "ice glasses" were a great touch. It would have been real easy to just shrug and use regular glassware -- people would have understood -- so going the extra mile was a class act. Thanks for the interesting post.
In other news, I've changed my domain. Could you please update your blogroll? Change "The Conundrum" to "Dr. Mercury" and the site address is:
But for God's Sake, keep it under "Eclectic", heh.
In yet other news, did everyone read the more-than-sobering article in OpinionJournal yesterday about the light bulbs? Hoo-boy, we're in for it now. You like your nice, soft, dim-able incandescent lights? Enjoy them while they last, folks.
Link to the OpinionJournal article and additional thoughts are here:
Like the light bulbs themselves, we are SO screwed.
Very cool. Didn't Superman have an ice palace? Might not be my first choice for a wedding but would like very much to visit. The thought of all that ice overhead is a little unnerving. Wonder how to engineer ice.
