In recent years, architecture has seen a flurry of offbeat yet beautiful abodes with designs based on the world around us. | By Sara Carpenter, BobVila.com
Whether it's a hike in the woods, a night beneath the stars, or a sunny day at the beach, natural inspirations are creeping more and more into residential architecture. Intended to be in sync with their surroundings, these homes may appear out of the ordinary, but their designs are based on common features of the great outdoors like mushrooms and seashells. Click through to see a dozen stunning examples of organic architecture from yesterday and today.
He Is Risen!: I have to sit here and wonder just how any American with any self respect could even consider casting a vote for Clinton. Now understand first that I was never a huge fan of Donald Trump either. I did enjoy that he was/is saying what needs to be said about our government and the people running it. However, when compared to Clinton he is head and shoulders above her as a possible choice. He doesn't run a foundation which is nothing more than a money laundering operation to funnel illegal campaign contributions to her (although not charged yet the evidence is mounting to unequivocally prove this fact). He didn't fail miserably in leadership regarding the Benghazi attack and then attempt to cover up his failure by lying to the victims and the public about the cause. He didn't run a "pay to play" scam while Secretary of State, forcing people to donate to that illegal foundation in order to receive her approval for US government deals. He didn't set up and run an illegal private email server which handled classified information up to and including top secret/special access documents. He didn't then attempt to wipe that server within hours of its disclosure destroying more than 33,000 emails. He didn't lie repeatedly about that server and it's use. He wasn't protected by the president and the attorney general from prosecution for the federal laws broken with those actions, which by the way, would have landed ANY other person in prison for a very very long time. He didn't rig the Democratic primary election and then immediately hire the disgraced head of that committee. There is not one redeeming quality that one can talk about when speaking of Hillary Clinton, so again I wonder why could anyone consider voting for her? Hillary Clinton, in a just world, would be in prison and not running for the president of the United States!
