Bunny walked into the Computer Room bearing a copy of the The Transylvania Times.
“Do you know what's open in Brevard?”
“No,” I said.
“The Aluminium Christmas Tree Exhibit!”
showing me the lead article in section B of the paper.
it's that time of year again,
when the Aluminum Tree & Æsthetically Challenged Seasonal Ornament Museum and Research Center
is open to the public.
I first came across this wonderful exhibit fourteen years ago,
and at the time,
I mentioned that my only exposure to aluminum Christmas trees was “A Charlies Brown Christmas.”
What I didn't mention in that post was that I thought aluminum Christmas trees were tall aluminum cones—the reality
was a bit different:
(Note: Bunny and I actually saw the exhibit back in December of 2012,
but I did not blog about it then—perhaps I was being lazy or something)
I was mildly disappointed they were not the large cones of painted aluminum,
but they're cool nonetheless.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the

using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
