Coolest House that Floats

The coolest house in the world that floats you believe it or not......Forget what you thought you knew about architecture, because this house will blow your mind; the layout of the house, the views and the sheer architectural artistry and imagination which made it come to life.The Wilkinson Residence, designed by architect Robert Harvey Oshatz, is a one of a kind piece of architectural art. Located in Portland, Oregon, this house architecture design and location bring the main level of the house into the tree canopy to evoke the feeling of being in a tree house. I call it, the house that flows.
The client asked for a house that not only became a part of the natural landscape but, also addressed the flow of music. This unique design uses a natural wood ceiling which floats on curving laminated wood beams and glass walls.
I love how the spaces in this amazing house flow inside and out - One has to actually stroll through the house to capture it’s complexities and it’s connection to the exterior; it seems as if the house almost wraps itself around you.

Airline Humor


The Three Worst Things to Hear in a Cockpit:
1. OH Sh#t!
2. I have an Idea!
3. Hey, Watch this!

Ten Ways To Tell If Your Pilot is on Drugs:
1. All the in-flight meals are missing their dessert squares.
2. In between "May I" and "have your attention" there's a 45-minute pause.
3. He's constantly yelling, "Take that, Red Baron!"
4. Shuttle from Newyork to Boston includes stopover in Colombia.
5. His copilot: Robert Downey Jr.
6. For the last hour, he's been riding the beverage cart like a rodeo cowboy.
7. Keeps coming on the P.A. to point out clouds that look like his old highschool teachers.
8. His wings are pinned to his bare chest.
9. When you fly over International Date Line, he yells, "Dude! We're, like, time traveling!"
10. When he exhales, the oxygen masks drop.

Murphy Laws For Frequent Flyers:
No flight ever leaves on time unless you are running late and need the delay to make the flight.
If you are running late for a flight, it will depart from the farthest gate within the terminal.
If you arrive very early for a flight, it inevitably will be delayed.
Flights never leave from Gate #1 at any terminal in the world.
If you must work on your flight, you will experience turbulence as soon as you touch pen to paper.
Only passengers seated in window seats ever have to get up to go to the lavatory.
The crying baby on board your flight is always seated next to you.
The best-looking woman on your flight is never seated next to you.
The less carry-on luggage space available on an aircraft, the more carry-on luggage passengers will bring aboard.

Flight Crew Code Words:
Blue ice = frozen toilet water
Choppy Air = severe turbulence
Hockey Puck = tasteless deli sandwich
Jetbag = very senior flight attendant
New Arrival Time = late!
NFR = 'Nother 'Friggin Runner (passenger arriving late)
Refrigerator = carry-on piece too large for overhead bin
Restricted Visibility = a white out or bad fog
Self-loading cargo = passengers
Showers = severe thunderstorm
Slam Dunk = very hard landing
Slider = tasteless breakfest omelet
