I agree, Downonthefarm. I'd looked at the room accommodations at the Coeur d'Alene Resort. As long as I had a lake view room, I think I could handle several days there while checking out what the city has to offer.

Would you stay here when planning a visit to the Blog Cabin in Coeur d'Alene? http://www.hauntedrooms.com/the-bates-motel-coeur...

All things considered, I'm a fan of custom-fitted shades. Then again, I can easily be won over by tasteful fixed drapery panels. Or maybe a careful pairing of the two, for when it comes to the desert lifestyle, wise material and fabric choices made for the shade to screen out the sun's heat and damaging rays is a must.

By the way, clothes may not make the man, but like any artwork from the classics to modern, choosing the right frame can definitely add interest to the subject. ^_^ http://blog.hgtvremodels.com/2014/10/28/windows-b...

When it comes to old bones, the Sedlec Ossuary in the Czech Republic is really bizarre. The small chapel is estimated to contain the skeletons and skulls of something like 40,000 to 70,000 people.

Creepier yet? Many of the bones have been arranged in "artistic" style as chandeliers, garlands, cornices, moldings and various other decorative forms -- all in apparent tribute to the human fascination with human skeletal remains.

Done it once, thanks. That was enough, and while I'm still among the living, I've no plans to head back in that direction anytime soon! http://blog.travelchannel.com/the-traveling-type/...

Smart planes are good. Sleeker, more fuel efficient is good. Lower fares as a result? I'm not going to hold my breath! http://blog.travelchannel.com/the-traveling-type/...

Could it be that we'll be seeing this 'early' model running around the grounds during the Blog Cabin renovation, compliments of Laurie? http://www.dinosaurcollectorsitea.com/CSafari_fil...

Maybe not, Eugenia, if it was carefully sited, framed out and built as a guest room, with stairs to a side entryway and large picture windows.

This is something similar, in Canakkale, Turkey. Larger than life and great fun to climb up. I've done it myself a few years ago! http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/35/58/87/3...

You name the sides, Sheri, and Coop's Pancake Palace has got 'em -- ham, eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, cottage cheese, stir-fried tofu, fresh fruit, even bison burgers if you're up for it! ^_^

As MaineBlkBear asks, "when is the reveal of this beautiful Dream Home?" I'm inspired to respond:

Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day. I've got a wonderful feeling, a Dream Home reveal's soon to be coming our way -- when the frost is on the pumpkin!

And in the words of James Whitcomb Riley, who answers much more eloquently... (I hope he will excuse my edits for the sake of blog brevity.)

When The Frost Is On The Punkin

They's something kinda' hearty-like about the atmusfere
When the heat of summer's over and the coolin' fall is here
For it sets my hart a-clickin' like the tickin' of a clock,
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock!

The husky, rusty russel of the tossels of the corn,
And the raspin' of the tangled leaves, as golden as the morn,
The strawstack in the medder, and the reaper in the shed;
The hosses in theyr stalls below -- the clover overhead!

Then yer apples all is gethered, and the ones a feller keeps
Is poured around the celler-floor in red and yeller heaps;
And yer cider-makin' 's over, and yer wimmern-folks is through
With their mince and apple-butter, and theyr souse and saussage too!

Of course we miss the flowers, and the blossums on the trees,
And the mumble of the hummin'-birds and buzzin' of the bees;
But the air's so appetizin' and the landscape through the haze
Of a crisp and sunny morning of the airly autumn days!

O, it's then's the times a feller is a-feelin' at his best
With the risin' sun to greet him from a night of peaceful rest,
Tis a pictur' that no painter has the colorin' to mock --
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock!
