jewelry, photo, st. augustine, stand -

I was looking for something new to rant about so I settled on this display stand. All the jewelries shown there look pretty unique. I cannot say if they are valuable not.

Modern builders need to take lessons from the past. Most buildings made after the years 1900s have fallen already. A good portion were destroyed by man's hands, but the rest have pretty much fallen on their own.  There has been a disassociation between architects and physicist. Now people who design most buildings focus too much on the look and not whether they are...
