Went in to D.C. early this morning and couldn't find the Moai at American University. If it's inside their museum, that means the only one outside in North America is possibly at a cemetary in Glendale, CA. That may be out of my range.

I'm in the area right now (i.e. at work)... Lance, Bruce: anyone up for an early dinner?

Fair enough, Lance is Sugar-Daddying, and you are feeding chicken soup to the SMIB Tag computer support team...

As long as it looks like one, I think it'll work. There are some real ones at American University and at the Smithsonian, but I think they are all inside. People think they're valuable or something...

Thank Dana for the dam research, I went through it and I think her recommendation for Brighton is spot on.

I told her what you said and her response was "because it is." Then I told her what Bruce said and her response was "no sugar... Just daddy."

See you guys for raw fish this week.

I doubt that it is real, but there's a large Moai head outside overlooking the marina at the tiki bar. But it doesn't say if you can get a bike next to it?

Country Boy Market is across the street
2211 Randolph Rd

Are you sure you don't have a supercomputer hidden in your five car garage???
