  1. Baristanet – you might want to add that Frank Lloyd Wright mini-masterpiece in Glen Ridge currently for sale. The lovely and gracious owners opened their home to the public today, and it was wonderful. No ‘chef’s kitchen’ , no ‘zen spa master bath’, no ‘media center’, no elaborate wiring, no storage for useless junk. Just brilliant, visionary, wholesome excellence, laden with craftsmanship, harmony and repose, of the kind that compels visitors to speak in hushed tones, and marvel at what we’ve lost as a culture, which, by the way, has sadly morphed into a vulgar and distended Drumpfian version of conspicuous consumption, replete with excessive debt spending, and low morals of the kind that would appeal to televangelists. Drumpf would never relieve himself in this Wright masterwork, no matter how full his bladder might be, even if said organ was loaded to the gills with Diet Coke, for, lo, the toilets are not gilded with gold leaf. I can see Drumpf hopping, dancing and jumping in the backyard, hoping for the nearest Chick-fil-a restroom, hundreds of miles away, but, having found none, availing himself to the in-ground pool instead, for fear of soiling his ill-fitting, off-the-rack suit.

  2. The Frank Lloyd House is magnificent…a masterpiece…. there were hundreds of visitors on Saturday. Thank you Baristanet… such an amazing opportunity!
