Santa Sighting

While driving in Minnesota to our Christmas Eve destination, we not only saw Santa, but followed him, and took a picture of the elusive gifter. He was driving a car with Minnesota plates, which looked to be fully loaded. He was not speeding, swerving, or distracted. That's all from here. Back to you, Dick!

A rare self-portrait of Uncle Johnnny in this ornamental Christmas ornament. These types of pictures always remind me of MCEscher holding a mirror ball.

Oh Christmas Tree

The perfect Christmas tree?
All Christmas trees are perfect!
~Charles N. Barnard

Unfortunately, this quote was only talking about "real" Christmas trees. Artificial trees are made with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) which is one of the most environmentally unfriendly forms of non-renewable, petroleum-derived plastic. Several known carcinogens are generated during the production of PVC. "Fake" trees contain lead and other additives designed to make the otherwise rigid PVC more pliable. Many of these additives have been linked to liver, kidney, neurological and reproductive system damage in lab animal studies. Fake trees shed lead-laced dust, which covers branches or showers gifts and the floor below the tree. In toxic fake tree homes, avoid inhaling any dust from these lead-laced PVC death factories, which must then be stored in the toxic home yearound. Merry Christmas.

Explosive Design

This is a Dutch architect's design for a possible pair of buildings in South Korea. How could anyone find anything controversial about this look? It certainly is a conversation starter. However, most conversations would probably end up thumbs down on this one. Sorry. Back to the drawing board. How about a building shaped like a mushroom cloud?
