Are any of you fine folks familiar with this house in Grand Rapids?

GRAND RAPIDS -- In 1907, the Ladies Home Journal published the plans for Frank Lloyd Wright's ``Fireproof House for $5,000.'' Eight years later, architects Osgood and Osgood built the house, with slight changes.

Not only is the Meyer May House a good source of information about FLW in Grand Rapids, the owners of the Amberg House by Marian Mahony are very involved as well. In all the years the Conservancy has been around, I have never heard anything about a knock-off of the Fireproof House in GR, but if anyone would know, they would. I suspect it is not readily evident in a drive-by that it is related to FLW's work, being brick.

And unsurprisingly, Tamiflu DOES NOT PROTECT AGAINST BIRD FLU! NOR CAN IT POSSIBLY PROTECT YOU AGAINST ANYTHING AFTER YOU STOP TAKING IT.
