Is "ding ding ding" really an enhancement?

Please recommend music which would be noticeably worse off without a triangle. I have attended the symphony eight times per year for the past five years, and I've only been thoroughly annoyed by the triangle once*, but I'd like to develop appreciation rather than tolerance and befuddlement.

Where should I go, within a 2 hour drive of Durham, NC?

Where should I go next weekend? I live in Durham, NC and would like to keep the drive under two hours. Key points would include: really great B&B or eco-hotel (treehouse? massive windows looking outside?), great walks or cute town nearby, a body of water (lake, ocean, inlet) or nice woods, clean lines rather than frilly, or luxurious rather than old-lady-B&B. It would be great if you could recommend a specific place (Asheville is too far away for this weekend), or better yet, a specific hotel/B&B/inn. Pretend that money is no object, but I'd like to keep this under $200 a night (less is better) if possible; if a really unique place came up, I'd splurge. [more inside]

I need a good photo or surface map of the Bermuda triangle--one that will print well on A4.

I need a photo or map of the Bermuda trangle area, preferably a physical (rather than political map), if satellite photos can't be found. I need it at a decent resolution, too. Something that could be printed on A4 without looking too mucky.

Are there any sites that can output a specified area of Earth surface at a decent resolution?
