Traveler Explores Chicago's Field Museum 12/5/09

We had some time off during the day, so I took the Girls into Chicago to the Field Museum.

This is Sue, a T-Rex. Sue is famous, just like me. While I am known for my cuteness and insight, she is famous for being the most complete and best preserved T-Rex skeleton ever found!

The Girls insisted in going to watch a 3D movie about Egypt, but Sally forgot to get me some 3D glasses of my own. Now I have a headache...

Back outside, I checked out an early horse skeleton. Looks a lot like Charlie...

These are the Man Eating Lions of Tsavo! These two mane less male lions killed approx 35 people in 1898 in Kenya! "Oh Sally, come on over here for a moment. I have something I would like you to see. Here kitty, kitty, kitty ..."

After Sally didn't show up, I headed off on my own to discover more cool things in the museum. This is a Crow headdress. How beautiful!

The Field Museum has a large collection of authentic Indian clothes. "Excuse me sir, is that horse hair or human hair hanging from that shirt?"

This is my favorite part of the museum...

Look at this beautiful dress- those are Elk teeth used as decorations.

This is a huge Bison, as you already know, they were extremely important to the Native Americans.

Later that night, it was off to work. I manned the beaded horseshoe area of the table. We have made almost $500.00 for the Shiloh Horses so far with the shoes.

Joe and I stood by as Tony's Security while he signed. Tony and I worked and signed for five hours straight last night!

During my break (and after I briefed Joe about security protocol), I met a new friend. This is Domo and he lives in the theater's limo where he brings Good Luck.

We rested and chatted a bit by the fire...


But, it was a long, long day and I was tired. So were Jill's feet, so I guarded her shoes until we were ready to go home...

If those clothes belonged to a plains indian, I dare bet it's human hair. Love the pics of the clothes, btw!
And another Domo! How cool!

Podcast 010. James Ladyman's inaugural lecture. There is no doubt that in the history of physics there has been great progress in finding increasingly accurate descriptions of the phenomena we observe, and in the manipulation of physical systems in experiment and technology. Physics is often thought also to tell us about the most fundamental nature of reality, for example, about the true nature of material things and the unobservable causes of the phenomena, space and time, causation and the laws that govern the universe. However, there are grounds for scepticism about whether current physics should be trusted to answer metaphysical questions. There have been very successful theories in the past, such as Newtonian mechanics, optical ether theories of light, classical electromagnetism and others that are according to our best current theories largely wrong in their metaphysical implications despite being approximately empirically adequate to an excellent degree. Sir James Jeans said in 1942, "physics and philosophy are at most a few thousand years old, but probably have lives of thousands of millions of years stretching away in front of them. They are only just beginning to get under way, and we are still, in Newton’s words, like children playing with pebbles on the sea-shore, while the great ocean of truth rolls, unexplored, beyond our reach." Do we have reason to be more confident now than he was then? (Download this podcast directly from here or subscribe by following the instructions on the right.)

I like the fact that alex cannot keep a secret from tim because right there is true friends. I like the fact that saimon is trying his best to give advise to alex when alex needs help. I think that it’s nice for tim to stand up for alex in the first place but, I hate it when tim just turn his back on alex and take stacy’s side. Now that makes me think stacy is a very bad person.

Now in the mere exaggeration of the prevailing character of these features, and of the expression they were wont to convey, lay so much of change that I doubted to whom I spoke. The now ghastly pallor of the skin, and the now miraculous lustre of the eve, above all things startled and even awed me. The silken hair, too, had been suffered to grow all unheeded, and as, in its wild gossamer texture, it floated rather than fell about the face, I could not, even with effort, connect its Arabesque expression with any idea of simple humanity.

Lastly, remember it is important to have fun because that is what all these parties are supposed to be. By now, the notion might have become a trifle more clear for you on what it takes to make a party entertaining.

St Nicholas is the Anglican parish church of Blakeney, Norfolk, in the deanery of Holt and the Diocese of Norwich. It stands just inland from, and about 30 m (100 ft) above, the small port. Of the original 13th-century building only the chancel remains, the rest having been rebuilt in the prosperous 15th century; the chancel may have survived owing to its link to the nearby friary. Unusual architectural features include a second tower, used as a beacon, at its east end, a stepped seven-light window in the chancel, and a hammerbeam roof in the nave. Much of the original church furniture was lost in the Reformation, but a late-Victorian restoration recreated something of the original appearance, as well as repairing and refacing the building. Nine Arts and Crafts windows by James Powell and Sons are featured on the east and south sides of the church, and the north porch has two modern blue-themed windows.rental accommodation hervey bayAcura AC Compressor

As mentioned above, substitution is not automatically recursive. So if a substituted template has code containing transclusions of other templates and parser functions, that code will be copied "as is" into the resulting wikitext – the transcluded items will not themselves be substituted.

Following the Greek root of the name cillia , the singular form is protozoon. Its use has, however, partially been replaced by the word protozoan, which was originally only used as an adjective. In the same manner the plural form protozoans is sometimes being used instead of protozoa.
