Melenos Lindos Hotel - Greece

Enviably located on the edge of Lindos Acropolis on Rhodes Island, Melenos Lindos Hotel is actually a cluster of whitewashed buildings, gardens and terraces connected by walkways and staircases. Designed with great respect for the local architecture and environment, the hotel features carved sand-stone, elaborate woodwork, and vivid mosaics to give the impression of a 17th century Lindian village. Individually decorated, the 12 suites are lovingly furnished in a traditional 17th century style with plush bedding, hand-painted ceilings, and fabulous hand-crafted furnishings created in workshops across Turkey and Morocco. Exquisite Greek and Asian dishes can be enjoyed in various dining venues throughout the property, from the intimate Fouli Restaurant to the stunning rooftop terrace overlooking the Aegean Sea.

Any painting that can be earnestly titled Man with Cat is good in my books, dear reader.
Add to that the fact that thisportrait of Henry Sturgis Drinker by that title was painted in 1898 by his sister-in-law Cecilia Beaux—a woman of whom the Smithsonian American Art Museum writes: “Beaux was a fiercely independent woman who lived well, kept handsome lovers, and had a will of iron. At a time when few women could, she carved out a career for herself as a portraitist, and was thought to rival John Singer Sargent”—and I just might have a new favorite painting.

Cecilia Beaux. Very cool lady. 
More women artists.

I have seen Clueless so many times and it just hit me that when Tai asked for a herbal refreshment she meant weed so when they said coke, they meant cocaine.It was so fucking obvious I just never thought about it.
