The Family Biz

There's a nice little article in the Daily Gazette (the paper of record for Schenectady, NY) about the architecture of the Bond Funeral Home, an establishment built by Westinghouse, bought by my great grandfather, then run by grandfather, and then by my uncle.

See it here.

Also, see the little sidebar (which looks like an advertisement) for a small photo gallery. It really is a beautiful building, one I was always fascinated with when I was young. My exposure at such a young age to embalmed dead bodies might help explain much of my morbidity.

On another note, a discovery at my brother's urging may have validated the Holy Hand Grenade segment from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I'm not sure if this makes the segment more funny or less. Ah, religious violence...
