    Film wreath at George Eastman House

    I was at the George Eastman House this afternoon and they are having a holiday wreath display and auction to benefit restoration projects; the Eastman Kodak entry is made of film and film cassette parts. Though you might be interested is seeing it. (By the way, I did get to see holmburgers briefly.)

    That wreath says it all about attitudes to Kodak and from the heart (of those that made it).

    I visited GEH 2003 or 4 and was expecting something quite different, perhaps because of the way we see the US as a cultureless brash society from Europe. Instead I found a wonderful museum and Institite, I walked down the street to get there and fell into conversation with another walker who said instantly you're European On asking why he said you're walking, he was Italian and working at GEH on the music archives - something few know about.

    Luckily GEH isn't Kodak.

    In case the text under the wreath belongs to it, I'm curious about what it says.

    It's the paper that people write down their bid on. The opening bid was $25 and it think it was up to about $40.
