With all the talk of bling vs. no bling, I thought it would be fun to compare the castle.
Now, granted, this particular comparison isn't *exactly* fair because the "then" picture was taken when the castle was BADLY in need of painting and was taken from the side (don't let the absence of Walt in the image bias you, LOL)
Personally, there is *some* of the bling I like, some I don't. But as a traditionalist, I will be happy to have our old castle back (but still with fresh paint job, and perhaps just a touch of the bling, but nix the gold drapes across the turrets, sheesh!)
If nothing else, this side-by-side (up and down?) comparison should be interesting to people who've been wondering how big a change it really is.
