*breathes deeply*

Thanks to a link by hysterium I now know that my hometown of Merced is the 7th most polluted metropolitan area in the American Lung Association's State of the Air 2003 report. I laugh at this because of how true it is. Hell, the entire Central Valley of California needs to be in it. When travelling to Merced from here in Barstow I have to go through the Tehachipi Mountains and when coming down from the mountains into the valley you can see a very ominous smothering brown/black layer of smog you have to travel down into. Look at the cities listed #2, #3, #4 and #6. Those are also in the Central Valley. Air quality is one of the very few good things about moving here to Barstow.

inflatable Church

The world's one and only inflatable church is here to allow couples to get married wherever their hearts desire. This fantastic air filled building is 47ft long by 25ft wide & 47ft high. The attention to detail is heavenly complete with plastic "stained glass" windows and airbrush artwork which replicates the traditional church. Inside it has an inflatable organ, altar, pulpit, pews, candles and a gold cross. Even the doors are flanked by air-filled angels. The church can be built in three hours and dis-assembled in less than two.

You know, for some reason I would have thought it would have been a Californian-based company that would have come up with this kind of idea.
