Ian Anderson asked: >>I just found myself wondering, what is everyone else looking at when >>they look past their monitor or out their window? Now: Mostly pine trees and vultures. (Vultures that occasionally kamikaze into the office windows to jump start your heart and make your day more interesting. [I suppose I should really stop teasing them so, eh?]) Facing west, so the bright afternoon sun forces me to close my blinds. >>And what would you like to be looking at instead? Wanted: Hmmmm ... this being a family-oriented list I suppose a view of 'Hippy Hollow' would be out of the question. ;-P In that case I'd opt for a dramatic cliff-side ocean view with windows that actually open. Rocks, surf, salt air ... very nice. My 2¢, RonL.
