The most notable of these museums is Musee de l 'Armee: the army museum. This museum was opened in 1905 to the public and is housed on an entire wing of the building.

St helenas cathedral Amongst The best of cathedrals in the U.S and in the world, St Helenas Cathedral stands glorious and tall Above montana's capitol, despite wars, earthquakes and planes flying through the great spires. It is the christian pride of Montana. I personally have never been in any other cathedral, but from the pictures that i've seen, what St. Helena's Cathedral lacks in height, it certainly makes up for in Color and creative architecture. Built in 1908 under the supervision of Bishop John Carroll, the grand cathedral wasn't always as bright and colorful as I remarked earlier. With the stain glass windows that were buried somewhere in europe to escape ww2, the cathedral had lost its famous hue.
Vinoy Place Condominium Association is a luxury high rise property with the goal of being the premier property of downtown St. Petersburg. With 102 condo units valued over $500 per square foot and an annual budget of over 1.5 million it is critical that Vinoy Place operates at a highly effective level. From my observations of the Vinoy Place entities I do believe they achieve this goal. What I saw was an extremely strong board of directors who pay attention to detail, understand their roles, and ensure they fulfil their fiduciary duties to the association. The highly intelligent and qualified board oversees a strong manager, Jill Silverman, who is highly praised by them.
He was remarkably well received by everyone, which is why the decision to have Washington be our first president was unanimous; a decision that will make him go down in history as one of the most beloved and incorruptible leaders in the new world. George Washington was very great and important man with an incorruptible and exceptional character. George Washington was not particularly gifted in any one area. He had very limited education, and possessed no real intellectual talent. “That he was too illiterate unlearned, unread for his station and reputation is equally past dispute.” (Page 3) At the time, one didn’t have
The only thing that anyone knew for sure about Gatsby, was that he was rich. He threw the most extravagant parties that all of New York attended. His house is a castle and Nick describes it when he first sees the Gatsby mansion. “The one to my right was a colossal affair by any standard- it was a factual imitation of some Hotel de Ville in Normandy, with a tower on one side, spanking new under a thin beard of raw ivy, and a marble swimming pool, and more than forty acres of lawn and garden. It was Gatsby’s mansion,” (5).
In his memoir, “The Truth About the Titanic,” survivor Colonel Archibald Gracie made note of “the pleasure and comfort which all of us enjoyed upon this floating palace…with its extraordinary provisions for such purposes.” Indeed, the $7.5 million Titanic was the floating equivalent of a four-star luxury hotel, equipped with intricate Edwardian gadgetry and posh conveniences. Beyond that, the 46, 328-ton liner—whose 882 feet 9 inch length, the New York Times calculated, was the equivalent of more than four city blocks—also represented the cutting edge in transportation technology and design. “She was the latest thing in the art of shipbuilding,” White Star chairman and managing director J. Bruce Ismay testified in a U.S. Senate inquiry into the Titanic’s demise. “Absolutely no money was spared in her construction.” The Titanic—like its sister ship, the Olympic—was designed to compete with the Cunard liners Lusitania and Mauretania, which had set the speed standard for crossing the Atlantic a few years before. To that end, the Titanic incorporated the latest advances in power plant and propulsion systems.
