Wirra Willa is a tiny, tranquil pavilion located in Somersby, NSW, Australia, on an 80-acre property that formerly operated as a citrus fruit orchard. Designed by architect Matthew Woodward for his father, the pavilion is only 72 square meters (775 sq.ft) in size and it is surrounded by a 36 ...

Mexican Urban Retreat

If I somehow ended up living in Mexico City, find me a place like this.

We had forgotten how beautiful grey concrete can be until we saw what Ezequiel Farca had done with a 1970s residence in Mexico City. At the same time, we were also reminded of how much we love Farca's elegant work in general. To start with, the Barrancas House in Mexico City had a lot going for ...

I applaud modern energy innovations. That said, will this be remembered as one of the silliest technical ideas in the field of electric vehicles?

Update on That Train Full of Gold

A couple weeks ago heard about the Nazi Train of Gold found by two guys in Poland: https://goo.gl/rLhhMO

Well, after probing the location with radar, Polish officials are now "99%" sure that they've located the train.

"[Deputy Culture Minister Piotr Zuchowski] said images appeared to show a train equipped with gun turrets. Local legend says a Nazi train filled with gold, gems and guns went missing near the city in 1945. Mr Zuchowski called the latest evidence an 'exceptional' discovery. He did not reveal the location of the find but said he personally hoped that it would bring to light looted art and Nazi archives."

That's a giant starting gun for the world's treasure hunters. But how on earth do you keep away those weekend Nicolas Cages?

"In a statement earlier this week, Mr Zuchowski warned the public to stop searching for the train until official procedures to secure the find were completed. He said there could be 'hazardous substances' and there was a 'huge probability that the train is booby-trapped'."

Meh, maybe. How bad do you want the gold?

A Polish official says ground-penetrating radar appears to confirm rumours of a Nazi train, believed to be carrying gold, buried near the city of Walbrzych.

Yep, these are gas station sandwiches. A "Kielbasa Ruben Blitz"? Gotta give them points for trying.

Outraged Over Cecil? Then Let's Talk About Zimbabwe

When we're ready to ask what caused the death of Cecil the Lion, CNN opinion writer Frida Ghitis suggests we consider plight of the people of Zimbabwe:

"Some note that if we're suddenly looking at Zimbabwe, now would be a fine time to gaze beyond the fate of a lion. The country is a showcase of misrule by a president who has held power for 28 years, destroying the country's economic base and spurring the kind of hopelessness, hunger and poverty that, among other things, leads to poaching wild animals."

Her take on the subject is worth a full read.

#cecilthelion   #zimbabwe  
What about concern for human suffering in Zimbabwe, Syria, and among refugees the world over? Compassion only for a lion is too little.

These are your guys for critters like Moles, Birds, Bats, Raccoons, Squirrels, Chipmunks, Skunks, Groundhogs and Opossums. I heard what sounded like a chipmunk in our kitchen exhaust vent. Called at 11:30am on a Saturday, and Chris was out to my place within an hour. (For course, this may not always be possible.) Before he even started he said "That's not a chipmunk, sounds more like a bird" -- and he was right. Gained access to the bird without damaging or altering our duct work, released the bird outside, and restored the vent cover. Also did excellent installation of a vent screen to prevent re-entry. Price was about in the range I expected, perhaps a bit on the high side. But of the two others place I called first, one was closed and the other charged "emergency" rates on the weekends. So they were the lowest of those I found on a Saturday. Highly recommended.

Of all the sushi places in Central Ohio - and I've been to a lot of them - Mr. Sushi is in the top tier. Gotta award that 5 stars.

My wife and I stayed at the Porch House several years ago for a perfect getaway overnight. We are not big on the social aspect of B&B's, and that wasn't a problem as the house served as our home base for our busy schedule. We didn't want to miss out on the delicious breakfast, though, and it was fun to meet the other guests (briefly) before heading out. Location is perfect for bike treks (right on the bike trail access) or walking to dinner in town. Less than 2 blocks from most things, a little more for Denison events. Highly recommended.
