> Hola Sterling!, List!

> and shameless marketing,,
> How about adding some "vision" to your plan? Instead of a mere ten degree
> single "moon" standard Missouri position, I propose we put the hotel
> instead at
> the metastable center of gravity of the two body system. Now you get to
> be in
> the middle of two irregular shaped planetoids, both tumbling around you
> FILLING 20 DEGREES OF ARC EACH, for double the pleasure. That would be
> forty full
> moons in apparent diameter a piece, under continuoius view.
> Promo: Your glass house awaits you! Be naughty and indulge your seetheart
