Martin's Castle was built 25 years ago by Lexington, Kentucky home builder, Rex Martin. He and his new bride honeymooned in Europe, where she fell in love with castles. Upon there return to Lexington he built her this replica of a castle, but they divorced before it's completion. No one has ever lived here - It's remained unsold and for sale - Price unknown.
With its dozen turrets, four corner towers and 12-foot walls, the castle is at once a forbidding sight and a vision of whimsy. Unruly bushes grow out of the western battlements, and white cattle graze in the surrounding pasture. Signs posted at the front and side gates to the property warn trespassers to stay away. But every day tourists including myself stop and pull out cameras to take snapshots of the unexpected sight among the rolling horse farms.
On my return trip to Atlanta this week I happened on some tires headed for Canada.
Titan Tire Corporation, a subsidiary of Titan International Inc., shipped its first giant 63-inch off-the-road (OTR) tire and wheel assemblies on July 29, 2008. These tires, each measuring nearly 14 feet tall and weighing approximately 12,500 pounds, are being shipped to Canada's oil sands for use in mining applications.

The roofers started at 8 AM and were finished at 6 PM. They left the dumpster overnight and allowed me to throw away any thing I wanted!
I took full at advantage of that situation and cleaned my garage/basement throwing away twelve years of stuff!
We love the new three tab shingles!
