The road to Daytona 1-28-12 Architecture 101

Back in the 1960's a fellow named Peter Blake wrote a book entitled 
'God Own Junkyard' I read it. 

Here is a little background on this ol' boy.  
I am an architect, educated at THE University of Florida.  A Student of Robert C. Broward in Jacksonville, Florida.  Bob was just inducted into the Florida Artist Hall of Fame, actually next Monday February 6, 2012.  
All those years ago I never would have guessed this would have come to pass.  Butte, You had to be there. 
Yet never the less Bob was and still is a prime influence upon my understand and appreciation of Architecture.  Now again Bob would, or does spell the word with both a capital A and a small a.  
but i digress, I was talking about Peter Blake and God's Own...
So here I am driving along on Saturday morning, last, going to the 50th Daytona 24, yeah buddy, R&R and had just arrived on the outskirts of Orlando, north of Mickeys House, south of Daytona.  I drift past this little Gem and hit the breaks and wandered around a god forsaken neighborhood thinking a series of right hand turns would bring me back.  all the right hand tums were dead end, but I did it. Got back to Sangrala.  No, wait a minute that's La Sangra.  
What the hell is wrong with this picture?  I could feel Bob in my soul.  
That is when I knew I was headed for hell. 

For the of the Aarchitecture was just too sweet for the architect/photographer to not want to record. 

Let's roll Tiger, Mr. Charleston is waiting.

What Fresh Hell 1/24/12 Newt

Yeah Buddy, bend over, grab the edge of the bed, and take it like a good wife has been told to, by the Pope.  
Get ready to be lied to and cheated on as well.  
He is a historian and enjoys repeating history and screwing strange.

And then I thought of this Juxtaposition. Newt is a Reaganite.  Beware the ides of march with a bad moon risin'. Is this the voodoo economics they spoke of?

What Fresh Hell 1/16/12 Militaryindustryistan


A little talked about country that is Steady Draining the U$ Treasury.  

With enactment of the sixth FY2011 Continuing Resolution through March 18, 2011, (H.J.Res. 48/P.L. 112-6) Congress has approved a total of $1.283 trillion for military operations, base security, reconstruction, foreign aid, embassy costs, and veterans’ health care for the three operations initiated since the 9/11 attacks:
Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) Afghanistan and other counter terror operations;
Operation Noble Eagle (ONE), providing enhanced security at military bases;
and  Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). This estimate assumes that the current CR level continues through the rest of the year and that agencies allocate reductions proportionately.

Of this $1.283 trillion total, CRS estimates that Iraq will receive about $806 billion (63%),
OEF $444  billion (35%) and enhanced base security about $29 billion (2%),
with about $5 billion that CRS cannot allocate (1/2%).
About 94% of the funds are for DOD, 5% for foreign aid programs and diplomatic operations,
and 1% for medical care for veterans. 

as you can see Militaryindustryistan is an IsLand in the Stream.
