I would love for you to win something you love so much. :)
Oh, that's right! I think decanters tend to be lovely. So, if someone does want to set up for a party with drinks in the main living space, there is even a decanter in the UO, just not with heavy emphasis on drinking. Nice balance this year, from my perspective.
I just realized something I have been subliminally enjoying about this UO--there is no area devoted to drinking. In past UOs, I found it so odd that with very little floor space, some of it would be devoted to furniture designed to facilitate drinking. Here we have way more space than we have ever seen before, yet it is a place that welcomes me to feel relaxed in my own skin. I don't really know how to express that, but it is so nice.
Anyone wanting a permanent bar could easily virtually design that in their own minds as desired. :)
No, that's just to make it easy for you to go back to see the GHs they already built. When they started the Smart Homes, they said that replaced the GHs.
I wouldn't be surprised. :-D
Omen? I DVR'ed the UO special. After watching it, I was unable to delete it. I have checked the settings and tried to delete it in every possible way because I need the space, but it just won't delete. Maybe this UO is meant to be in my life forever. :)
For the Boston UO, I went to Google Earth street view and figured out how to walk around and see the neighborhood. If I can do it, you can do it! Put the address of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel into the search bar and take it from there. :)
If you have never done Google Earth before, it will take a little time for it to load on to your computer. Once you have it, it is surprisingly handy.
I don't think that area is accessible?
Hey, look, Virginia put this info into a new blog. Seriously, all she has to do is copy you and we will have great blogs.
I actually like that part.
When I was a kid, there weren't as many roads and bridges, and I loved when we had to take a ferry to get somewhere and then drive on. I have happy memories of watching the scenery go by, moving at a majestic pace, the bustle of the off loading. They were mini-adventures in a calmer time.
Also, it keeps development down on the island and makes it easier for the island's culture and charm to survive.
grswla is right, we can't afford it anyway. But I like the dream of riding on the ferry. :)
