What happened to our beautiful blue water and "Sploofus Island" picture at the top of the screen? Can't say for sure if it's been back since the maintenance or not. I thought it was beautiful and miss it very much. Will it be back, Justin????? I hope so!

Looked like what I look out at here on my island.

This was SO COOL!!!

Surrounded Islands, Biscayne Bay, Miami, Florida, 1980-83
Christo and Jeanne-Claude
On May 7, 1983 the installation of Surrounded Islands was completed. In Biscayne Bay, between the city of Miami, North Miami, the Village of Miami Shores and Miami Beach, 11 of the islands situated in the area of Bakers Haulover Cut, Broad Causeway, 79th Street Causeway, Julia Tuttle Causeway, and Venetian Causeway were surrounded with 585,000 square meters (6.5 million square feet) of pink woven polypropylene fabric covering the surface of the water, floating and extending out 61 meters (200 feet) from each island into the Bay. The fabric was sewn into 79 patterns to follow the contours of the 11 islands.
For 2 weeks Surrounded Islands spreading over 11.3 kilometers (7 miles) was seen, approached and enjoyed by the public, from the causeways, the land, the water and the air. The luminous pink color of the shiny fabric was in harmony with the tropical vegetation of the uninhabited verdant island, the light of the Miami sky and the colors of the shallow waters of Biscayne Bay

Just "rescued" the framed poster I have from my ruins

The Island WAS beautiful and peaceful, Justin. Any chance it's coming back?

I'd love to see the island come back looked so peacful and relaxing. But if not an island a mountain scene would be just as nice...Anyway that would be peaceful really.

Who has a problem with redheads?

Awww man?! You want the island instead of the catchy "BRAIN FOOD ...MMM GOOD!" tag line?

OK, you got it.

But - you will only see the island when you are logged in. I want to keep the tag line in place for newcomers who are browsing the site and have not yet joined.

Thanks so much Justin! That picture really meant a lot to me. I thought it was beautiful, and it could surely let your mind wander into the far blue yonder, especially how it seemed to fade into a sunset. Thank you ever so much!!! (

Maybe it can be progressive.
non-member -- brain food
silver -- island
gold -- island and a condo or something
platinum -- island and cabanapersons
titanium -- never mind, we could never believe it

'Island with condo' is a regression!

For titanium, I want an ACTUAL cabana boy to stand by my computer and feed me bonbons (in between word rounds)
