I do believe I know where that pig is (was). It's in the "Pacific Place" shopping center in downtown Seattle.

Every year the city does a thing called "Pigs on Parade", I think it's some sort of benefit for the Pike Place Market. There are dozens of pigs scattered around the city.

PJ, you don't get out of it quite that easy - it is indeed an aluminum plate. Neener

We visited our friends in RB who lost their home I referred to in the fire thread. This is what's left of their 1910 Steinway M(?):



The metal bits in the upper right are what's left of the stairway railing the piano sat under.

It is. they had no warning the fire was coming, literally just happened to wake up as the fire was approaching at about 2:00am Tuesday. They had enough time to leave with four photo albums and the clothes on their backs.

They live in a really nice neighborhood - large homes on large lots. Every house surrounding them was virtually untouched. The fire either jumped to get them, or a narrow finger reached their house through the brush, it's hard to say.

I'm going up to help sift rubble as soon as Altoid's back in school.

That "Cat Piano" picture is ALL over the 'net - but where on earth did you find an ANIMATED version?!? That's a new one on me. Good find!

Now someone just needs to add the act chorus from the "Meow Mix" ad.

I suppose this has been posted before, but I actually got to see it when I stayed at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis this weekend: Francis Scott Key's Knabe.







It's on the mezzanine balcony overlooking the lobby. No one is allowed to play it, of course. In the lobby, they have a Yamaha grand that is either playing itself or in the eveining has someone live tickling its keys. I snuck to try a Young Chang grand in the ballroom on the top floor. My God what an awful piano. Talk about PSOs!

After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF.
