Virginia City o Suicide Table
Suicide Gambling Table
The table originally brought to Virginia City in early 1860’s; by first owner “Black Jake”, had lost $70,000.00 in one evening and shot himself.
The second owner only ran the table for one night of play. He was unable to pay off his losses and one report states he committed suicide while another report said someone saved him the trouble of doing it himself.
The table was then stored for years because no one would ‘Deal’ on it. By the late 1890’s it came out of storage and was converted in to a ’21 Table’ and by that time the reputation of the table was forgotten ….until…..a half drunk miner stumbled into the saloon , gambled a gold ring against a $5 gold piece, and won. He played all night long…. and by morning had won over $86,000.00 in cash, a team of horses and an interest in a gold mine. Everything the owner of the table had in the world. That caused the 3rd suicide!

"If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe"
- Carl Sagen
I love this model of the planets. Notice the bottom picture how all the sizes of the planets in our solar system compare to the size of the sun.
In the middle picture you get another stark comparison of how the solid matter planets like earth are dwarfed in size to that of the gas giants.
It's amazing really to think how many things had to come together for the earth to exist. A spiraling black hole in the center of the galaxy to cause the orbit of large planetary masses and stellar debris. The massive size of Jupiter to deflect most of the stellar debris from Earth, the other once planet colliding into earth to create our moon and a stable orbit around the sun. The heavy metals such as Iron collecting together along with the chemical elements of water creating a rich mixture rarely found elsewhere in the universe so far. And all these materials gathering in just the right distance from the sun to allow life to flourish.
Also interesting is how our planet is rich in Iron and so are we. It's in our blood, it's why it's the color red and smells the way it does. It's amazing to think about it and make the connections.
image downloaded from the interwebs. I did not create this model.

Pike Place Market
Pike Place Market is a public market overlooking the Elliott Bay waterfront in Seattle, Washington, United States. The Market opened August 17, 1907, and is one of the oldest continually operated public farmers' markets in the United States. It is a place of business for many small farmers, craftspeople and merchants. Named after the central street, Pike Place runs northwest from Pike Street to Virginia Street, and remains one of Seattle's most popular tourist destinations.
The Market is built on the edge of a steep hill, and consists of several lower levels located below the main level. Each features a variety of unique shops. Antique dealers, comic book sellers, small family-owned restaurants, while the area contains one of the few remaining head shops left in Seattle. The upper street level contains fishmongers, fresh produce stands and craft stalls operating in the covered arcades. Local farmers and craftspeople sell year-round in the arcades from tables they rent from the Market on a daily basis, in accordance with the Market's mission and founding goal: allowing consumers to "Meet the Producer."
Pike Place Market is home to nearly 500 residents who live in 8 different buildings throughout the Market. Most of these buildings have been low income housing in the past, however, some of them no longer are, such as the Livingston Baker apartments. The Market is run by the quasi-government Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority (PDA). The Pike Place Market sees 10 million visitors annually.
new dining room table
i've been without a dining room table for nearly a year now, scanning my local antique and thrift stores for a danish modern style table within my budget, along with ebay. i've had these jens risom chairs for years, purchased for $13 apiece in an atlanta thrift store, but i only had three, so i was using them in my living room and was looking for a complete dining room set. just before christmas, i found an identical jens risom chair on ebay for only $25 and knew that i had to have it, since finding a solitary table was much easier.

OH look at that! A 365 before noon! That's a new record for me!
Well here we go, this is what I do when daddy leaves the house for work. I put on my prom dress and climb on his furniture (with a booster step, that thing is pretty tall!). I only had fourish hours of sleep soooo he'll forgive me if he finds out. I spent last night talking to my best friend and she always keeps me entertained until the wee hours (2am). I woke up this morning at 7ish to go to daddy's house. He made coffee (which I couldn't resist) and I had some of my favorite cereal...Lucky Charms...yumyum.
I also have a tasty little cupcake waiting for me with a little santa clause on it. I spent all of yesterday baking: two rum cakes and more than a dozen cupcakes, which is why yesterday's picture was so rushed! How am I even functioning right now?!
Today I haven't really done anything. I'll hopefully be sending my last college apps woohoo!! I only have Brown,

Gothic Coffee Table
American Gothic - 28/52
We spent a long weekend in Chicago, which meant a walk from the hotel to the Art Institute of Chicago. Not only is it one of the greatest art museums in the world - made even better with the recent addition of the modern wing - but it's also one of the most liberal art museums I've ever been to when it comes to letting visitors use their cameras. Basically, if it's part of their permanent collection you can fire away.
At the same time, I've never understood taking a photograph of a painting. Go in the gift shop and buy a coffee table book of the museum's collection if you want to look at the art you've just seen.
But I do think it's interesting to see people interacting with art. I especially liked this older couple sitting on a bench in front of Grant Wood's American Gothic. I thought they made for a nice juxtaposition with the couple in the painting.
I recently read that this painting was second only to the Mona Lisa for being the most recognized and reproduced work of art in the world. Which is nice, since Grant Wood is from my home state of Iowa, grew up about 20 miles away from where I grew up, and was a teacher at the University of Iowa.
BLUEBONNET BACK SEXY STYLE
As i said , this is an outfit that i wore for my art car parade, and the owner and desisigner of the bustle skirt used me as her model. Also you will see my first tattoo. This is in honor or 3 things. First and most important, celebrating my 4 years of being sober. Second, the butterfly is a painting my mom did and i had it copied in her honer. Last the moon is a sticker , the very first on my art car. I believe that tatoos must have meaning, otherwise you are following every one elses trails. I beat my own drum. Anyway the photos are the begining of my modeling carrer, plus i took these myself as i am doing photography shows, another great thing about houston....I am going to be in a coffee table book in december for one of my photos!!! I will post my grant submission photos soon!!! Also i chose this particular photo to show the bloming flowers along with the dead tree to show how life and death coexist in beauty

HOW TO MAKE A WOODEN PICNIC TABLE : THAKAT COFFEE TABLE : RECTANGULAR DINING ROOM TABLES.
How To Make A Wooden Picnic Table
my plan for today was to have a picnic of sorts. it was overcast and windy, a little gloomy, just beautiful all around. this is my kind of weather. since i ate church's chicken for the first time ever this week (persuaded by lawrence, despite my curiosity over how good food can be so cheap), that was what i exposed slo to today.
i've been informed that the church's on 7th is the place to go. i don't know if it actually makes a difference, but i do enjoy cruising through the east side. while we were waiting for our food to come out, a girl who was probably my age asked if i had a dollar so she could get some chicken. i told her i didn't have cash, at which point she offered to give me the cash she had ($3 and some change) if i would use my card. just last night i was ranting about what's so wrong with sharing the wealth, so i figured i'd practice what i preached. she got two of the same two-piece meals i'd gotten for her and her boyfriend. i asked if she wanted something to drink, but she just got water.
slo started talking about how nice i was being, in a...i don't know, skeptical or surprised tone. maybe it was her rainbow knee socks, but i told him i can't bitch about socialism haters and balk at losing $2. big deal.
my jungian collective unconscious radar pinged soon thereafter, as we sat on the i-35 frontage road. an old car in front of us sporting a 2004 bush sticker (of all things!) started yelling at the old panhandler there. when he finally hobbled over, i saw the woman driving hand him a $10 bill. i see panhandlers every day, and i never actually see anyone give them money, much less $10. i really believe jung was onto something.
i wanted to eat at bailey playground, but there were college kids playing volleyball by the tables. as we drove up shoal creek looking for a place to eat, we found this baseball field, which i didn't know existed. i'd forgotten the park in the distance even existed. i miss my old 'hood. if i had the money, i'd buy me a house in allandale.
old, deserted wooden bleachers built into the side of a steep hill, and beautiful green grass amidst the bare trees. what's more american than fried chicken and baseball? gorgeous solitude right along shoal creek for which i'm so very grateful. i love being outside and alone.
After two nights, there was a sunset as I drove the back roads of OhiO.
Just spent twenty minutes sipping tea, eavesdropping on the hotel counter girls. Dirty mouths they have! Scary, intimidating, brash talk....but when I went up to make conversation it turned to knitting, shopping, beach homes in Florida, design. This will never get tiring.
Yesterday I went to Shipshewana, home of some grand flea market that people flock to from around the midwest. Silly me thought it would offer something other than knockoff sunglasses, skin-so-soft and mesh bags....One really awesome part was inside this barn all of the auctioning went down. Groups gathered around the auctioneer, men sweating while hoisting up couches in the air for everyone to see, a wooden mallard that sold for sixty bucks, an awesome table for three.
As I was feeling like a disgusting, typical American tourist, I went to the museum to learn about the Amish and Mennonites. The people on my tour ran through it, didn't read a single display and seemed more intent on ordering some homemade pretzels and ice cream and of course cheddar cheese. I left feeling like a snobbish, more knowledgeble tourist, and after a picnic in the sun with my atlas and journal, I booked it out of town.
How I could be twenty five years old and not know the history of Christianity (at all) is disappointing. Another reason I travel alone: four hours in a museum, taking notes.

Holy Trinity Church, Skipton, England - July 2005
Holy Trinity Church, Skipton
This ancient church has been here at the top of the High Street for centuries, welcoming local people as well as folk from all over the world. It is a place where many have spent much time looking, wondering, soaking up its atmosphere, worshipping, being still and quiet. It is the home of a large and vibrant Christian family where many, each in their own way, have found God.
If you are in ever Skipton, come and see us - We hope you enjoy your visit to our church - and find something special here too.
A Brief History
The first church was built in the early 1100's, possibly made of wood. It was near where the tower now stands. Another church was built about 1300 with help from the monks at Bolton Priory. It was extended further eastwards towards the end of the 1400's, probably helped by a gift from Richard III.
The tower was damaged during the Civil War, but it was restored in the 1650's (along with some of the windows too) by Lady Anne Clifford from the castle next door. The tower suffered again in 1853 - this time from lightning. It and the roof were repaired soon afterwards.
At about the same time gas lighting was fitted in the church: this made the church warmer and that caused an unbearable smell from the burial vaults (!) so 30 centimetres of concrete had to be put on the floor.
There used to be galleries with seats to fit everyone in, and the pews used to be box pews, but the galleries came down in 1909 and the pews were replaced by the present oak ones with their little doors.
Lightning never strikes twice they say... well it did at Holy Trinity! In 1925 it caused a fire which completely destroyed the organ.
Recent work has included the development of the Lady Chapel and the extension of the Vestry Rooms (our church hall) in 1979; very recently, the Prayer Corner has been established in the north-east corner of the church for personal, quiet prayer.
Points of special interest to you
1 The Font
For 700 years, the beginning of a Christian's journey and the beginning of your journey today.
2 The Green Man
Amongst the faces on the pillars and roof bosses, you'll find a pagan symbol in our Christian building!
3 The A.P. window
Look to the right to see Lady Anne Clifford's devotion to Holy Trinity during the period of the Civil War.
4 The Screen
This beautiful oak screen is over 450 years old. When it was new it was probably painted.
5 The Sedillia
Three seats in the wall. Here sat the priests in mediaeval times. It was probably once near the main altax.
6 The Lady Chapel
Here you see the magnificent tomb of George Clifford - a reminder of Holy Trinity's links with Skipton Castle. The aumbry light in the corner reminds us of the presence of Christ in the bread and wine of Holy Communion.
7 The High Altar
A reminder of the table of the Last Supper. The colour of the frontal changes with the Church's seasons.
8 The Dole Board
This lists gifts for the community. This is still part of our mission today.
9 The Prayer Corner
A place where you can pray quietly and be with God in peace.
10 The Anchorite's Cell
Someone probably lived here alone in mediaeval times, right next to the church and spent their life in prayer.
11 Honeypot and the Refectory (on Fridays and Saturdays)
To feed the body after refreshment of the spirit!
You will find our History of the Parish Church (price ?1) a valuable souvenir of your visit.

The Free Church of Saint Mary-The-Virgin
133-145 West 46th Street, Midtown Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States
The Free Church of Saint Mary-the-Virgin complex, including the church, Clergy House, Mission House, Rectory and Lady Chapel, was designed by Pierre L. LeBrun of Napoleon LeBrun & Sons in 1894. The church, long a center of Anglo-Catholic worship, is a physical realization of the tenets of the Oxford Movement which sought to better the lives of the urban poor through nursing care, inspirational activity and the ritual of the Pre-Reformation Church in England. Built in 1895 to make full use of an irregular site, St. Mary's was designed both to realize the programmatic goals of its trustees and to evoke, in the church and Lady Chapel, the 13th- century French Gothic Style. The Clergy and Mission Houses, and the Rectory were cast in the 14th-century French Gothic style. The result is one of the finest Gothic-inspired designs of New York's late 19th century. The steel frame construction of the church can be said to have made the building the first of its kind and size in the world, thus redefining the conventional methods of church construction. Among the building's several specific Anglo-Catholic characteristics are the subjects selected for the sculptures of J. Massey Rhind whose academic naturalism complements
Above the church's side aisles and ambulatory the exterior walls of the clerestory (Plate 15), partially visible from both West 46th and 47th Streets, are faced with limestone. On both sides of the clerestory (east and west) eight out of nine panelled bays, separated by minimal and token buttressing, contain the tall, two-light windows of plate tracery with drip moldings. The windows are filled with leaded glass in geometric patterns, manufactured by Arnold & Locke. The steep saddleback roof is slate-covered. A fleche of pressed copper rises from the ridge line between bays eight and nine (containing the bell brought from West 45th Street). Though visible from West 46th Street, the fleche is seen best from West 47th Street where it is the terminal feature above the church's five apse windows and steep roof. Only the center three of these five windows contain the glass specifically projected for them and manufactured by C. F. Kempe & Co., Ltd., London.
Like the Clergy and Mission Houses on West 46th Street, the Rectory at 144 West 47th Street (Plate 8) is of orange Tiffany brick on a granite base with a limestone water table. The keyed and ornamental door and window surrounds, sills, stringcourses, and drip moldings are limestone. The Rectory entrance has its original bluestone stoop and basement areaway. The double doors with their brass fittings are of paneled oak, two over two, with a transom of plate glass above. The Rectory shelters the sacristy and vestry rooms, as well as the living quarters of the rector and his family. Windows containing one-over-one wood sash some with leaded glass in a geometric pattern, are capped by drip moldings with foliate stops. Of special interest is the bow window at the second story set within splayed reveals. The lintel is an iron "I" beam decorated with five iron rosettes, while the casing is of wood as are the two narrow shafts at the angles of the bow, and the drip molding carries an ornamental finial. The gable coping, chimney and chimney pots are terra cotta. The eastern end of the slate covered roof is broached, its hip adorned with a pressed copper finial.

Rectangular Training Table
The vatican museum from the top. It is the large building with the central courtyard. the rectangular building in front of it is the Sistene Chapel.
11/22/2004 - Monday: in Rome Roma, the Vatican, train to Florence Firenze
Left hotel a bit late...not too bad. Tried to get on the subway but there was a line up the stairs. We were going to take a bus, but then we got a cab. 10 euros to take a cab two metro stops...I sort of think that wasn't strictly kosher...but maybe it was. it was still fun. We got to go under a tunnel that we saw yesterday during our ordeal march of being lost.
the idea was to catch the capucin crypts on the way to the vatican. But they were closed...still. so we slipped down back into the subway. We had used our single use tickets when we were turned back by the line at the Termini station, but we decided that the moral constraints were met, so we slipped through and re-used the tickets to get to the vatican. AFter all, we had gone through the gate, but we hadn't gotten on a train...
so the train left at 4:48ish, maybe 4:47...basically right on time ...
Off we rushed to the Vatican museum. We arrived at 10:00...and the english tour was at 10:30, so just enough time to get oriented and rest a bit before the ordeal by marbel floor!
We had a nice tour guide. First she showed us a sort of parchement view of the sistine chapel-two rulls of text and pictures with details of the different scenes. She would wind it down to get the next view.
This was fascinating...I am phenomenally underinformed of art and cultural matters...it is almost a cliche to say that, but egads it it true.
on the other hand, there are things we know today that were unknown 200 years ago. Amazingly...apparantly the whole forum area was under dirt until 18-something. So much dirt that only the tops of the columns were exposed. and even now much remains.
The archeologists cringe over the techniques used to clear what is now exposed. There have been several recent archeological 'campaigns' among the ruins of palatine hill that have excavated pre-roman huts. one of the write ups discussed the findings of 27 flakes of flint, indicating tool maing. So infering thngs based on bits of things found...which is the whole point of archeology.
And it made me realize that they are not done excavating Rome Roma...an odd thing to realize, since only a moment's consideration would reveal how obvious that is! There are Indian mounds that the archeologists are intentionally leaving alone for now, with the expressed plan of letting future archeologists examine them when they have better techniques.
my ears are popping...and the gps lost its lock...I then look out and realize we are going through a tunnel. ah...sense is made.
maybe...perhaps it wasn't a tunnel...I can't tell. several more episodes of pressure changes are occuring.
There are sliding head rests on the cabin walls in back of the seats. they are padded and have vertical supports so that you can lean on them to sleep without falling into the window, or onto your neighbor. they slide up and down to allow you to adjust to your preferences.
We didn't see the capucini crypt, because it was closed, and it was getting dark as we got on the train, but we are doing pretty well.
The vatican tour took two hours...and it seemed that we were moving much of the time. they have these slick radio receivors so you can hear the tour guide even if you are in the next room back.
I had a strong response to a tapestry depicting the slaughter of the chilidren by herod. One baby is being held, barely, by its mother and a soldier has a dagger to the child's heart. The baby is about to die. Other mother's are using their bodies to shield their infants. it is truly horrible.
damn! the pressure changes are really frequent, and amazingly annoying.
I downloaded a bunch of stuff from 'hex'-a friend of Jo and Schuyler's. I'm reading
how to build a reality that doesn't fall apart two days later...file:///Users/admin/wa/web/downlode.org/etext/how_to_build.html
I'm on the train...fighting sleep. I need to pee, but to do that I worry I'll have to wake the gentleman seated in front of the door to our compartment.
passing through orte...at 5:27:00---possibly even got a track point. I had a signal for a moment.
well..more than a moment, but not too long. there is crying in the hall....
The GPS showed us going 115 mph, for a bit. not just one observation. interesting. fast.
The hall of maps was cool because I realized it was, or could have been, not about art and instead was about the simple matter of managing an empire.
I enjoyed the museum, duh, and the Sistine chapel...and then we climbed the dome! I loved that! I truly loved it. We got to the top and I could see radio vatican and the quiet parts of the vatican and various 'stuff.' I don't know why, but seeing vatican radi
Colony Farm Bunkhouse - 1908
Description of Historic Place:
The Colony Farm Bunkhouse is a one-storey wood-frame rectangular-plan building with regular fenestration, located adjacent to the main north-south axis, Colony Farm Road, at Colony Farm in Coquitlam. The house sits perpendicular to the road, with the front facing towards Lougheed Highway. This is one of two original buildings remaining at Colony Farm, the other being the Manager's Residence; both are located across from the original Village Green that was a central grassed feature of the site.
Heritage Value of Historic Place:
The Colony Farm Bunkhouse is valued as one of the original buildings constructed for the Coquitlam Hospital for the Mind (now known as Riverview Hospital), for its ties to the province's psychiatric health initiatives and as part of a model farm developed by the province. Colony Farm was purchased by the province in 1904 as the location for a new psychiatric facility to relieve the overcrowding at the original lunatic asylum in New Westminster. The lowlands of the farm were developed to provide opportunities for the inmates to work in a healthy, supervised setting and also to provide food supplies for the hospital complex. Upland from the farm, a campus of buildings for chronic patients was designed, based on the best and most humane practices of the time. The complex, which came to be known as Essondale after the Secretary of Health, Henry Esson Young, strived for self-sufficiency while providing occupational training for the mentally ill. Opened in 1910, the facilities at Colony Farm were conceived as more than just an adjunct to the mental institution, but rather as a provincial demonstration farm with high quality farm and living quarters, ultra modern farm equipment and pristine grounds.
The farm was partly staffed by patients, who were paid a small salary to work and live at the farm. The Bunkhouse was originally constructed as a Pump House; one of the two earliest buildings constructed at the farm; the other being the Engineer's House (now demolished).Visible from the entranceway to the farm, the one-storey Pump House had a central three-storey water tower that served as one of the landmarks in the initial development of the farm, along with the Arena and the Workers’ Cottage. A coal-fired, steam-driven water pump propelled over 492,000 litres of water into the tower on a daily basis from three sand points, 5.5 meters deep. The water was used both for farm purposes and for the site’s fire protection system. The water tower was not used for long as the sand points silted up, and the farm site was connected to the New Westminster water system. Rooms for workers were located on each side of the pumping tower. During the farm's period of decline after the end of the Second World War, many buildings were deconstructed or demolished.
In the 1930s, the tower was removed and the structure was re-roofed and re-sided. The existing rooms, shared bathroom, kitchen pump pit, windows and doorways were retained, but the remainder of the interior was demised to allow for more rooms for use as a bunkhouse.
Additionally, the Colony Farm Bunkhouse is significant as part of the original grand plan of the Essondale complex. The original 1908 competition for the design was won by Victoria architect J.C.M. Keith, but its initial phases were executed by prominent architect Henry Sandham Griffith (1865-1943) who was also responsible for the design of the West Lawn building, which still exists uphill from Colony Farm. Significantly, the original marble showers and mosaic tiled bathroom floors, imported from Italy, match those in the West Lawn building. The Bunkhouse and the West Lawn building are the two oldest surviving structures from the original Essondale complex, and the Bunkhouse is the oldest building that survives from the establishment of Colony Farm.
Key elements that define the heritage character of the Colony Farm Bunkhouse include its:
- setting within historic Colony Farm, adjacent to the Colony Farm Manager's Residence and across from the Village Green
- orientation, facing Lougheed Highway and east of Colony Farm Road
- vernacular functional design as expressed by its modest one-storey wood-frame structure, with low-pitched hipped roof
- substantial cement foundation that reflects the original location of the central tower
- wood-frame construction, with wooden drop siding (over the original wooden siding), corner boards, water table boards and cedar shingle roof
- regular fenestration including double-hung, 6-over-i wooden sash windows
- interior details such as high ceilings, wooden window and door frames, cast iron radiators, marble shower stalls and ceramic tiles in the bathroom

One for a Furry Saturday too. Hannah is good at making room for herself next to whatever I am doing. With the new (yay!) wifi in this home (yay!) Hannah and I have many places to spend time catching up on the computer. Her tail is very ornamental, I think.
Some of you asked questions about her yesterday. Here's a little report:
Thank you everybody! Hannah is indeed very cuddly and wants to be on me or leaning against me whenever I sit or lie down. I welcome this. Her former owner has a wonderful, expansive personality so I hoped Hannah would have some of this too. I first thought she might be goofy when she showed me how she likes to drink water, by dipping in her paw and licking it. And then yesterday she was very funny and playful. She chased a string that I pulled round the cottage. She attacked little pieces of wood on the floor. She made me laugh later when I sat on the floor and threw the I Ching coins - and when I tied the coins again with a long red ribbon and put in on the floor beside me Hannah took it and pulled it around and batted it with her feet and even took it inside a paper bag that was on the floor. She is used to being an indoor-outdoor cat and misses going outdoors. She often sits by the door and asks to go out. I think today I will let her try it. I think the yard will be a nice place for her.

Very Large Coffee Table
-A Coffee time-
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an emphatic "yes." The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed. Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.
The golf balls are the important things. Your family, your children,your faith, your health, your friends, and your favourite passions. Things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter. Your job, your house, and your car.
The sand is everything else. The small stuff. "If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter.Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."

My Craig-Foo is VERY STRONG!
So... I've always had pretty good luck with craigslist. And today was just another example of that. The show in the blackbox needs a coffee table and while we have one in stock, we wanted something in a fancier style for this show. So I popped online and found this one. It's broken, but easy to fix, has a glass top, and even is on cute little metal casters already. And it was FREE! Which was exactly what we wanted to spend.
And Mel and I also found on craigslist... a lovely large-table-with-comfy-chairs dining room set for our apartment for only $25. Finally, the really sketchy uncomfortable can't-sit-in-them chairs have been banished to the basement!
