I don't think I can decypher Harvey's line.

...and I'd sure like to know how Harvey even knew the answer so quickly.

Steve, Lady Churchill was a Clementine, but Winston called her Clemmie. My Clemmie is a Clemmie. While I sorta recognized the building she knew what happened there even if the Nazis did not.

Hmmm... I have an odd feeling there is something dubious about that.

They award National Register of Historic Places status to just about any old trashy place.

I'm glad to be able to affirm that our Fresno boys are on top of things. It was, after all, the world's first.

I must say, there was an oddly familiar look to that picture.

While I am not up on history, I suppose it was in the news a while back, and I do try to keep with the news. It surprised me when my first Google try found the same picture in the first hit. cool

My search: Fresno Historic Landfill

The funny story is that the place made it on the historic registry, and then was immediately ridiculed, since it is also a Superfund site.

My family being from Fresno I actually recognized it but wasn't sure.Near Jensen. I like how they always put a park,golf course,housing tract on or near a dump.

LI (51) - the newest one

I guess the water from HH does not go there.

I wonder what those white specks are on the shore opposite the town? Salt? Snow? Guano?.... hmmm, South America somewhere?
