So is it State Capitol or State Capital? I’m sure my mother (if she reads this blog) will be sending me an email immediately to correct me. As luck would have it, a friend on Google Talk just sent me this link from Grammarist. Capitol it is, then.
Sunday was an unusually bright and beautiful day in Washington State so a few of us took a quick trip down to Olympia, WA to see the State Capitol. They have an interactive online tour of the building here and guided tours at the capitol during visiting hours.
The building just completed an extensive cleaning process so it was a great time for me to visit the capitol. This was really a spectacular place, filled with Tiffany chandeliers, giant sculptures and Alaskan marble. For weights, materials and comparison data, the state has some valuable information on their government site. What was most surprising for me to learn, as a Washington State resident, was the fact that the capitol is supported by our state lumber industry and not my tax dollars.
I had some issues once again with loose rolls in my Zero Image, but a friend believes he has a solution for me. I’ll let you know how it goes.
