Thank you for preserving it this way at least. Marilyn

I thought it important to do so, Marilyn. And I have an image from the church towerr of it as well, deliberately. I had an in-depth conversation about it re the different viewpoints on its destruction or preservation with a former President and therefore former resident. For him there was no question. It is termite ridden, utterly.

But it design is similar to the Royal Palace in many ways and intents, so it will be interesting to see what design is used for the new residence when that is decided.

Thanks for your real interest and encouragement, Marilyn.
