artificial palm trees..

There seems to be a disturbing trend in my vicinity...artificial palms OUTDOORS> And not the silk kind (not that it would be any better). They are large metal ones & each leaf is huge solid metal painted green, the trunk is also metal & painted brown, it mimicks the look of a real palm...I'm at a loss..is there something I missed recently? They look absolutely ridiculous- they are as big as real ones too! In the winter with snow all around...has anyone else seen them in their neck of the woods or did I just luck out?

He does have an ego as big as all outdoors, doesn't he. Pretty soon his hair is going to match his ego.

How can he look in the mirror and think his hair looks good?! Although on the other hand, maybe it's all part of a clever marketing plan -- the worse his hair look, the more people talk about it, and the more he's in the minds of the general public.....

There is such a thing as divine retribution, and Donald's hair is God's little crack me up.

I just want the opportunity to right that lid- for FREEEEE!!! Do you think he'd let me if I wrote that to him? DH thought I was nuts when I told him:) It really pains me....his hair...

Money definitely does not always equal taste.

Sometimes just for fun, I look through the MLS listings for houses over $1,000,000. Not that I'll ever be able to afford one, but it's nice to dream :)

Some of these huge & expensive homes are just horribly decorated. And lots have really crappy kitchens.

It's sort of like Donald Trump's hair -- is that the best that can be done with all that money?!

I guess I will be returning mine then...
Seriously, have been contemplating getting fake mini trees to block out landlord peeking...I kill everything alive anyway. I'm in the process of killing off landlord's ugly plant that he left here as a "welcoming gift". Yeah right, it's in there all the spiders live. I've trapped it in a room with no light hoping it will die a slow and painful plant death.

In the Vicinity of Howard and Cabana, there's a store that sells pool supplies. I can't explain it either. Are they left over props from Gilligan's Island? go figure.

they really are enough to drive one to drink...I mean really??? We aren't in the tropics, this is land of the pine trees!! I will try to take a pic. It shouldn't be hard the one house has them lining the driveway on one side...this is waterfront house with property taxes equivalent to my mortgage...then the other day I saw one peeking out from another ones yard! That's when I started to worry....:(
