  1. I went to the Liberace Museum many years ago, not because I am a big Liberace fan (who isn’t?), but to see one of Chopin’s old pianos that Liberace owned. I got lost getting there – walked around in the blazing desert sun for over an hour. When I got there, they wanted $15 to get in. Screw that. It was nice and cool & dark but I turned around & headed back outside.

  2. Thanks for the link to the Meis article. That is probably the most successful international style housing project ever. I went and looked at it on google maps streetview and it looks gorgeous (mostly because of the landscaping, but still..)
