Afternoon Delight


For those who came to our containers sales do remember our greenhouse a few years ago. it was use as a storage of packing materials, lawnmower, garden tools and junk. Last spring I wanted to empty it and make it into a sun room, a space to chill out with a glass of wine and a snack in the late afternoon and evenings.  Often we take our friends for appetizers before dinner into our "Orangerie" to use the french term

Traditional anduze pots from Anduze South France with olive trees

The lamps I made with a pair of 1930's Belgian garden urns

The small early 1900 french iron bed i convert into a petite banquette and pillow I made out of old linen.



19th century store counter in original paint found in Lyon, France 
Some of the item are still available check our website.

They will readily admit I closed casinos... , the SUndowner, the Silver Club in Sparks, but they won't admit I am responsible for Silver Legacy.
Or putting the railroad underground so it doesn't have to blow its horn everyday at 3am through downtown Reno.
You don't admit the Silver Club despite the connection to the Hells Angel's murder at JohnAsquaga's Nugget?
You don't admit I built the Fremont Steet Experience in Vegas? "you did a lot there." How about free tickets for Santana?
I was standing out front of the motherfucking Mandalay Bay event center looking for a ticket to the riddick Bowe/Holyfield fight and couldn't get in.
Don't forget the other obvious Vegas development::::Danny Gans at the Rio in Vegas. Anyways, he went to the Bellagio because of me and allowed to die, thereby alleviating the real of incurring further evil.
How about Brokeback Mountain? They allowed the same tactic to be employed after the BAtman movie people praised so strongly.
Did you know Steve Jobs was a Posevelski clue??? How about that for mover and shaker??
I think I built both separate parking garages at my two favorite casinos, a clue due to the connection:::Binion's Horseshoe (Rounders, poker) and CalNeva Reno. "One of them is mad." Learned a lesson:::Don't do what you're told. What the gods tell you is temptation, a test of your worthiness. You have accepted responsibility and will be judged for what's been entrusted to you, professionally, family, etc.

Fuck Ahmen and all his fucking friends for tormennting me maliciously this morning.
