I mean, I got the certificate for this when I bought my home, and....what happens next? Doesn't pretty much every house in Duluth qualify? None of you has come forward yet with an excessive amount of fanfare and congratulations for my home being a part of this. I want more out of the DPA I guess is what I'm saying. Cake or something. A commemorative coin perhaps.

H-dog, While I certainly appreciate your sense of writing-style, as well as your attempts at humor (as "dry" and/or "ironic" and/or "colorful" as it may be), I might recommend a slightly more restrained and parsed commenting presence, lest you become, well...

Wigger please! Why do you suppose I do it? It's the melba toast factor Victorious. I gotta be me. I recommend to you your days are numbered. Go back to your data processing or whatever, and breathe a sigh of relief, I'll be gone soon enough and then you'll miss poor Herzog. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XU1MAokrrUk

I did this for my parent's house. Got a wood plague to put outside, and some type of certificate (if I recall correctly).

"plaque" not "plague", but given how sick I've been lately, plague is more appropriate...

You gotta be you, H, but do we all have to suffer while you're (apparently) off your meds? You are starting to come off as a troll. If your house received a centennial certificate, then the fanfare came before you owned it. The DPA is a self-funded volunteer organization, not a city entity. If you want more out of them, become a member and ask "How can I help?"

To clarify, If the house came with a certificate when you bought it.... And I realize that in the last two days, I may be coming off as a troll. Apologies.

The Baghdad Preservation Alliance During the shock and awe of Operation Iraqi Freedom, handing out commemorative stickers, coins and certificates from my organization the 'Baghdad Preservation Alliance' would've made all the difference. By endearing us to the locals with slogans like 'Standing in the remains of where your home once stood is a valuable reminder it was just a material object preventing you from discovering the rest of the world' or 'Your once beautiful city in ruins doesn't have to be a negative thing, go out and find yourself,' they would've known the depth of our love. The official chocolate coin even had a beautiful golden wrapper with smiling portraits of George H.W. Bush Senior and George W Bush Junior on either side to help tell them apart, and commemorating our years of contributions to their prosperity. Eleven trillion dollars of hard earned tax payer dollars invested there? Priceless.

Heh, data processing. If only my profession were that non-adventurous.

Upon further thought, my job duties entail full-time processing of data in order to not die. So...yeah.
