1. we no longer burn candels in the cathedral here
because the wax nearly ruined my ceiling paintings.
so it is with cooking by anyone in the GROVE ARCADE.

2. acid rain is dissolving the great pyramids.
so it is at the GROVE ARCADE with coal burning at progress energy and duke energy and AEP AND TVA.

SIDE NOTE. the beautiful Lake Katherine at Reynolda in Winston Salem was ruined
by all the mud run off from the RJR headquarters built on Cherry Marshall street.

so..kick out the cookers
cork the coalers.
