    I hope everything turns out well for your parrot. Watching angeleyedboidan on YouTube, I've learned that parrots (in that case, a peach-colored Cockatoo named Max) are basically people with feathers. Your parrot is lucky to have such a wonderful human.

    I've been actually READING that cotedetexas article, and am somewhat less impressed. The Author's command of English is somewhat less than stellar. Even her descriptions of certain elements are lacking. She does, however, notice that much of the Bradlee's "restoration" fails to be true to the original. The porch columns have been butchered, and the balustrade is cheap and wrong. Apparently, the Bradlees had less money than one would expect. Not surprising. The "Son of Architectural Digest" married a Hattiesburg, Mississippi developer's daughter, and it appears HE was the one who married money. New Yorkers frequently have less money than you'd think.

    I just found a new source on Grey Gardens. This is from a Texas decorator. These days, they're a lot smarter than New York decorators (New Yorkers seem, these days, to be a bunch of not-very-bright little conformists), and this one seems to have a lot of insight regarding the house.

    Thank you! We've just witnessed the most massive and most ruthless propaganda campaign within our lifetimes - perhaps the biggest one since the "Holy Inquisition" and the mandatory brainwashing by the Third Reich (and Stalinist Russia, and Mao's "Cultural Revolution"). Yet the intended victim of that campaign STILL managed to prevail. If that's not a mandate, I don't know what is.

    Come to think of it the propaganda campaigns of "The Church", Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini and Mao, were each conducted by a single party, in complete control of the populace. In the recent election, villains of BOTH parties rallied against Trump. So, possibly, we've just seen the most massive smear campaign, ever, in the history of Humanity.

    Still, somehow, our boy prevailed.

    I've asked you before, I think, but have you seen Babette's Feast? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvNifgj_dv4 It's set in Jutland (part of Denmark that juts into the sea), but might as well be Norway, given the earnestness of the populace.

    Yes. When you were describing the whole Malawi initiative, the FIRST thing that popped into my mind was, "Those must be the NORWEGIAN cousins, and this is a perfect example of Suicidal Altruism."

    If only the world had a couple billion MORE suicidally altruistic Norsemen, and about FOUR billion FEWER 'others', we wouldn't be on a dying planet. We need MORE people who're too good for their own good. The whole of humanity would be planting trees and saving endangered species, rather than figuring-out how to cheat, enslave, and slaughter each other.

    I just googled 'Crazy River'. Crazy is RIGHT! But who knew there was STILL, anywhere in the world, an unexplored river? In any event, I hope your cousins do not succeed in guilting you into destroying your health, in some sweltering hellhole. That is exactly what happens to a great many people who go to such places.

    Happy New Year, Seadory! Thank you for that talismanic gesture! Have you seen the posts from gullibles, asking how to AVOID the snakes and alligators in Mississippi? It's WORKING!!! (they're not properly fearful of the baby-snatching Boars, though... yet... more propaganda needed...)

    No, that's traditional 'wainscoting', I think. That's a higher-quality Flag Dance video than I've seen, before. You can see all the work that Jackie's team did, to clean-up the place (however temporarily). I was re-reading an old article, and had missed that Edie climbed up a Catalpa tree, and set fire TO HER OWN HAIR. That (and not the supposed Alopecia) was why she was bald. And I'd missed that she'd had proposals from Howard Hughes (now THAT would have been her perfect match!!!), and J. Paul Getty.
