That island looks like a great place to kick back and have a beer. Nice hint, BTW.

It seems to be time for another hint from the perpetrator of this puzzle.

BTW, what happened to the picture?

The url of the picture is:
http://www.whitehousemuseum.org/images/white-house-south-face-c1870.jpg

It looks like that site, www.whitehousemuseum.org is down for the time being.
Google still had a smaller version of the picture, so I copied it to the Zone's gallery here:

I believe that we have established that the picture is of the White House c. 1870 and that "what happened" occurred between the end of the Civil war and the building of the wings.

wagga made a post about the sesquicentennial of the Civil War and this was the sesquicentennial puzzle -- seemed relevant at the time, but the Civil War did not end in the White House.

Harvey,

It was great to meet you too. That was quite a party. I thought of posting a puzzle here, but the Baldy area has been featured before.

For those not in on the secret, the occasion was Shindig 300.

There are alternatives to potatoes, but one has to populate the plane somehow!

156: What do those spuds have to do with this guy and my laptop?


No spuds were harmed during the test, although they've probably since been eaten.

You can tell the difference, though, real passengers take their jackets off and stow them in the overhead lockers.

Answer: What In The World Happened Here? XXXX CLV (155):

This is a new light-hearted puzzle to make up for the black mystery that is CLIV (154). As far as we know, no one named CLIVe was murdered in that building, though.



A brewer in Queensland, Australia leased a Barrier Reef island named Pumpkin Island and renamed it "XXXX" Island.

Purchasers of XXXX beer might find a ticket in the slabbie that entitles them & 3 mates to a short sweet holiday.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports on this bogan paradise. You can go there if you are over 18.

PS: My brother informs me that the brew is named "XXXX" because Queenslanders can't spell "beer".

These are the Fourex Angels, but the beer is rubbish.

Now that this one is out of the bag, here is a report from The Register.

Warning: The embedded video contains science & math. And the comments contain puns...

Finally, the Wi-Fi-exposed spuds were donated to a food bank after testing.

Wait, what? In 1955 the area code didn't matter? No matter where you were you got CONAD? Something besides the typesetting is wrong here.
