I'm so happy for you!!!! We close on our new house in Nashville (Brentwood) on November 15th... slim pickens in THAT area. We settled on a contemporary that has "Lloyd Wrightian" overtones.... built in 1964. That said, I can't believe we're leaving our California Ranch-style Rambler. Best ...

We're very interested (we're relocating to Nashville).... but I'm betting you'll be long gone by the time we get there! DH is doing research there in two weeks and we certainly haven't seen anything close to what we have now, until we build... or stumble on something unusual like your property. It's...

Too working class, maybe? TD isn't my favorite Bond, either - or is it you are saying he's the one you really prefer? Clive Owen just looked really smooooooth in the "Second Sight" series on BBC America. SDR suggested Michael Caine - but I'm thinking he might break a hip. For the love of Pete, can't...

Too true (nice friend) and my parents owned a frame shop and gallery - and I worked there, too! Parallel universes...

Touch up a Nelson Bench?

Quick question for you afficionados... I just received a George Nelson Bench. It's a 5' all black version with the "George Nelson by Herman Miller" ellipsis tag embedded into the underneath surface. It's very sturdy and heavy - no stress or torque damage. The surfaces, however, have a few (very few)...

What a great idea... <<<hand to head>>> We have these large mini-louvered doors that just don't "fit". I'd look at them, right there at the front door and think, "Something's just not right, here, and I can't put my finger on it...." Since the house is an Asian inspired Ranch style, this makes sense...

Minx, you are dead on.... Clive Owen - white hot.

I mean, how many films can have Ewan MacGregor as the protagonist? Alan Cummings, sexy, but tres` fey. Russell Crowe, a bit fleshy and coarse - in the Timothy Dalton vein;... and any American - blasphemy!

Clive Owen. Definitely.

JMHO.
