Greetings, Earthling...take me to your Neighbors!

Intergalactic market?
Imagine the cost of the relo!
Actually, it's one of only about a hundred surviving, (give or take a few),
futuristic pre-fab plastic reinforced homes imagined and materialized by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen in 1968, mostly for use as a camping retreat or holiday home.
It could be easily transported by helicopter or shipped on a truck, sleeps eight, has a full bathroom and central fireplace, and great views, - depending on where you are dropped off.
And get this - the reason it didn't take off was due to high oil prices in the 70s...
With oil prices topping 90.00 a barrel this week,
no doubt it would have an out-of-this-world price tag.
(BTW, I think pink flamingos were invented in
the U.S. in Leominster, Massachusetts-the good ol' USA!)
It's Friday, so watch this Futuro video mix from YouTube and
celebrate the past in the future!
Love Your Neighbor -Pink or Green!
