    Very interesting that they have to credit a photographer for taking a photo of a photo.

  2. I have never heard the term glamor-puss. 

    “a glamour girl/puss  (British & Australian) also a glamor girl/puss (American & Australian)a sexually attractive woman who is very interested in her clothes and appearance His name was always linked to some glamor girl. I think she sees herself as a bit of a glamour puss with her high heels and her blonde hair.See also: girl”

    Well there goes my theory about all New Yorkers being dickheads.

      Except for Resta himself, whose pride over his wife’s ‘real jaguar’ stole – ‘not the stuff they have today’ – puts him square in that category AFAIC.

    There’s a wonderful installation at the Tate Modern Gallery in London, a large chest of drawers, chock full of the artifacts found when the building was being renovated.

    One drawer contains IDs, another old soda bottle tops, another wallets, belts, shoes, etc.  What most would call trash became, in the Tate Gallery, modern archeological artifacts.

    Here it is!  Tate Thames Dig.

    When our 1902 late Victorian Atlanta house was renovated back in the 1990′s, a lot of stuff turned up in the woodwork — photos of the original owner, his wife and family, various antique post cards, his spectacles, his original door key.

    Now I’m wondering how much of the crap I’ve lost over the years is inside a wall somewhere.

    And how does it get there without whacking great holes everywhere? I’m blaming El Nino.
