Out my back door and about a mile down the road is Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Phipps is a steel and glass Victorian greenhouse that has been open to the public since 1893. Recently, President Obama and the First Lady hosted a reception for the G-20 leaders at Phipps. This is a must see if you are ever in Pittsburgh.

Why, I remember when Tom rode a trolley to work and we heat our house with a coal furnace... Ok, I don't actually remember that, but here is the door that used to lead to a coal bin in our basement. The coal which would have then been used to heat our home and cook our food. Ahhh... memories... Soot and memories...
