Who is that Guy at the Top of the Page?

It’s Vulcan.  

I am from Birmingham, Alabama and the statue is part of local lore.  He is located on Red Mountain which divides the downtown area with the southern suburbs.  The big joke is since he faces downtown his rear end is what you see when you are in Homewood just south of Red Mountain.  

Why is he up there?

I was inspired by Scott Guthrie’s Blog which has an image of a notable piece of skyline from Seattle.  It seemed appropriate to use a notable piece of skyline from my home town.  

Note: I realize if I change the theme of the blog this post might not make sense.  I promise to keep a picture of him around if that happens.
