and developed a deep appreciation for industrial design from that

collections get a proper display you'll just have to put up with
the old content to the right. Until then, I'll do my best to throw
out a random pic or thought here on the homepage as time permits,
as I transition from the old Eldo-centric site to the eclectic
Since I don't have my act together in presenting "the lodge"
in some sort of rational form, I'll have to rely on this photo-blog..."New
Year's" lodge construction.)
