I always think quirky houses are fun and different... I know my daughter would love to live here!
I also got a nice email from a master gingerbread-house maker and he said he was going to use this house and my previous picture of it for a model for his upcoming holiday creation.... so I will post a link here when it is done!

Daily Photo - The Chemical Pool
I was driving from Tampa, Florida up to Washington, DC. Along the way, about halfway through North Carolina, near a little town called Rowland, I found an abandoned motel. It was called the "Family Inns of America".
It looked like every roadside hotel you've ever seen, except it looked like it had run through about 20 different horror movies. Every room was completely gutted and scary, almost all the windows were broken, and the playground was rusted and creaked. I jumped out of the car with Ethan and we walked around, exploring the place. At one point, we found a bunch of old pink insulation pouring out of a split wall. My son had never seen insulation before and he asked what it was. I said, "I think it's a pig skin." That freaked him out big time. Oh yeah.
We stopped momentarily at the central pool, located right in the middle of the dilapidated complex.
Golden Ratio Video
Some of you that have heard me speak (or maybe from the Google Speech) know that I rant on and on about Composition, Phi, and the Golden Ratio. One of my New Zealander friends sent me this beautiful video below about numbers, math, Fibonacci, Phi, and all that good stuff.

This has the most intricate stone carving of any pulpit I have ever seen. You might want to zoom into the large version to see it in detail.

The LA nights tend to get a little cool, so there is nothing like an open pit fire to take the chill away. This is the hotel I stayed at in LA called the Custom Hotel (Stuck in Custom Hotel? Too easy!). I found it on this cool new boutique hotel site called TabletHotels.com. The site has the tagline "Hotels for Global Nomads", and aren't we all?
It's right by LAX and surprisingly inexpensive. They have this trendy club and bar (upstairs there) by the pool...
