    Anyone heard of The Wiggles - remember Dorothy the Dinosaur. I see copyright litigation in the future.

    As for the anti-yard glurge campaingers on Cyburbia - the people of America have spoken:

    She recalled another neighbor who got a letter from the commission scolding him for tacky yard decorations.
    Spoiled sports.

    I love it. Some day I am going to operate a web site devoted to spite houses.

    The fact that an ordinary 50 year old house is subject to historical review says a lot about Atlanta, and even more about Gen. Sherman
    She has been a bad girl, she is like a chemical, though you try and stop it she is like a narcotic.

    Historical preservation loopholes for those that can truly annoy! Seems like they screwed up the text of thier historical area draft. You can control the stoop shape but not the color of the house? OOPS!

    ...and such a lovely shade of green for that house, which should result in a substantial increase in neighborhood property values ...NOT!!!

    I love it. Houses should be more unique, too many restrictions lead to boring neighborhoods. Now the neighborhood has a little more character.

    You can try and fight city hall, but I guess you can't fight the grocery baggers union.
    A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."
