We are in the process of designing and quoting out custom bookcases for our living room and have some wide spans to cover but nothing like the width in the first picture. How in the world are those shelves supported? The unbroken horizontal lines are lovely, but it almost seems impossible with that many pounds of books.

I was at Target this morning to buy bubble bath for my kid--and to gawk at the rabid Missoni fans. I got there about an hour and a half after opening, and it was pretty bare. A few women's clothing items in XL and XXL, some shoes, PJs, and accessories. The housewares were gone. There were two women who had obviously grabbed everything they could get their hands on and were sorting their COMPLETELY full carts and deciding what to keep. Really?!

My house has a fallout shelter, but it isn't underground. I like to think that the Cold War era owners had the best intentions but a total lack of funds for burrowing into Tennesse limestone. It is cinderblock and poured concrete - 36 inches thick both ceilings and walls (not sure about the floor). It has air vents in the ceiling and a long entrance hallway that turns a corner into the actual 6' by 8' room (because gamma rays can't turn corners, duh). When we bought the house, the inspector mused that it would require a wrecking ball if we ever wanted to take it down. We keep our mower and tools in there. And it's the best tornado shelter I've ever seen above ground!
