    Thanks Matt, I will go and have a look. I hope it still functions as a village pub as well as a smart restaurant.

    I've learned that just because a house appraisal comes back positive and supports the deal, doesn't mean a bank will approve a loan. I have two options right now for the purchase of the geodesic dome house:

    * Umpqua bank in the 11th hour saying they'll take the appraisal at face value without further comps, but there are many questions there (seems a little fishy).
    * A "portfolio" loan that has all kins of requirements, including a $117K downpayment.

    That first one just came up this morning.

    As one who often gives thought, in otherwise quiet moments, to the progressive nature of tinnitus, you have my gratitude and appreciation. Geek on, good buddy.

    I just finished “How the word is passed” by Clint Smith

    Holy crap. I learned and felt and reflected. I’ve read lots on our racial history and racialized reality. This book is different. It’s Kendi’s “Stamped” combined with Coates’ “Between”. A damned good read.

    1. The Frank Lloyd Wright living room at the Met Museum is from a house that was on the shore of Lake Minnetonka. Francis Little commissioned the house from Wright in the 1910s. When he died his wife declined to live there by herself (250' of lakeshore frontage) and passed it on to her daughter and son-in-law. Time passed. The daughter and son-in-law grew tired of the expense of maintaining a near-landmark house and the growing nuisance of uninvited architects and tourists. A local group of Wright enthusiasts contacted the Met, which bought the house in 1972. Fast forward. The 55' living room opened at the Met in 1985. The Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Allentown (PA) Art Museum each have one of the other rooms.

    Levolour blinds use internal cable routing, make sure the internal cable guides are aligned with the top rail cable holes,
    if not you have one way (up only) blinds.The Zinn book didn't cover this, so I had the blinds on and off the
    window a few times.
