Solomon's Castle

Solomon's Castle, Ona Florida
Useless Trivia from MS.... Jennifer Anniston net worth is 150 Million... Celine Dion net worth 650 Million

Our pool temp is at 75 degrees but when I get in and the air temp is 68 it feels warm. If the air temp is 87 it feels cold... I DID say useless trivia...


stain glass windows
Photo's today from my 2006 archives... the first time I visited Solomon's Castle.  the castle is 12,000 sq feet and the artist built it himself, every piece of it, designed and built, the outside covering is discarded printing plates from a newspaper. CLICK Here to see my other 10 posts on this castles.
Solomon's Castle covers 12,000 square feet and stands (at the moment) three stories high. It's impossible to photograph in the blinding Florida sun, as Solomon has covered every exterior surface with discarded aluminum printing plates. - See more at: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2059#sthash.X1VMzdD2.dpuf

PS...I was here earlier after I read your comment about the Palm Tree House.

Curious...searching Google...and came up with this one. Is this the one you refer to?

very cool castle! I wish we had visited there before moving. thanks for the link, I'll be checking it out.
I would have never guessed there was that much difference in those ladies worth. I just found out that the wealthiest man in NC lives here in Cary. He is a co-founder of SAS Institute and is worth 8.1 billion! He's also the 60th wealthiest man in the U.S.. From what I've read the company is very good to their employees.

MS is priceless!

That is quite a castle. You, Miss MS, have the neatest posts! I like the quote and the ladies net worth...all I can think of to say is "wow". Even if Anniston is lagging behind, I can't feel too sorry for her. lol!

Hi Sandra, I wonder how many millions it cost to built a castle like Solomon's! Those psychiatrist's are smart!
Enjoy your day!

Rebecca said...

Psychiatrists...haha. Love the castle.

A good way to start the day is to read your post for a laugh. The castle is intriguing.

a bizarre kinda place.

EG CameraGirl said...

Oh my! The owner has spooky tastes! If Jennifer Anniston is worth so much, why is she still in photos for cosmetics? For sure she doesn't need the money!

That's quite a collection of tidbits and images. Love that mural!
