Apologies to the list for a quasi-off topic post, but I have seen an
advert in the Seattle Times classifieds for a World War II Barrage
Balloon, in it's original packing...$500.00

My wife just can't see the utility of owning your very own barrage
balloon, so I guess I'm out, but it would make one swell attention
getter at an MV meet! Among the knowledgeable listers, what were they
filled with? I would guess it might be pretty pricey to buy enough
helium to fill a barrage balloon, not to mention I would worry my two
year old would inadvertently get carried aloft...

Anyway, if anyone needs protection against aerial attack, I can call and
get more info.
