There’s this building in Terrell, where I live, that is currently being remodeled. The building used to have plain stucco on the front and it appeared that someone was really covering up the architectural detail of the building itself.
The first thing that was done was the stucco was removed and a beautiful building was revealed.
Here’s the window arch.
The building to the left essentially looked like this building before.
Small flowers in between the first and second floors.
Honestly, I wonder how a city could allow someone to cover up a building like this. It simply doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. Here are a two more.
This is what I do with my Saturday mornings.
I also caught an amazing sunrise while taking pictures of the building. The south side of Terrell is supposed to be the “bad” side of the tracks (yes, literally, there are railroad tracks that divide the town). Anyway, here’s a couple pictures of the sunrise yesterday morning.
John Mayer, singer and songwriter, has a blog.
Last week I told everyone how great Google Reader was, but then I failed to tell everyone that you need a gmail account. If you need one, let me know.
Lifehacker had a small article about Google Educator, which are Google tools that can be used in the classroom. I wonder if administrators would actually allow students to use Google products for the classroom. It’s really not a bad idea, kids don’t need a computer, they can go to any computer to write their paper. They don’t need a disk to save their work. Google has kids addicted to Google products at an early age and has customers for life. Everybody wins.
Zoho has the same type of products and may be even better than Google. Products for both include word processor, spreadsheet, presentation tools, calendars, etc.
Want to play any Nintendo NES game? Okay. By the way, this includes Tecmo Bowl (via Lifehacker).
This is really for the ladies, but I couldn’t believe that someone actually started a website solely about seating. Simple Seating is currently closed, but should open sometime this month, thus, if you’re planning a wedding or other party then this might be a good place to start.
