The Byron poem was drilled into me at school but I had to consult my trusty Oxford Quotations to get the verse construction correct.

Paulette - The cliff dwellings out here are amazing! I've only seen one so far but the complexity and scale of the structures is fascinating. Bandelier National Monument is right down the road from me. Petroglyph Nat. Monument is next on my list...it's down near Albuquerque.

Yes, Bandlier is where my friends visited. They'll enjoy seeing the link.I couldn't remember the name of the park. Also the name of the inhabitants were the Anasazi. This earth is truly filled with places of fascination.

My apologies for the incorrect attribution. Like Claire, I was amazed by your command of poetry.

Claire,
I enjoyed seeing a kachina doll collection at the Heard. I had forgotten all about them.Going to look them up online.

I'm going on an archeological "dig" into my storage room. If I'm not back in a couple of days, will you please alert the authorities so they can mount a rescue.

Thank you,
Margaret

Hi all, I just saw an ad for a program about the assassination of King Tut on the Discovery Channel and thought you might be interested.

http://www.exn.ca/Stories/2002/09/23/53.asp

The date and time is for the broadcast in Canada - don't know when it will be aired in the US or elsewhere.

Take care,
Margaret

I'll look out for the program. By the way, I saw a report on CNN that the robot used in the Great Pyramid for that tv special located two more undiscovered doors. Apparently one was in the northern shaft and I don't remember where the other one was.When I find the link to the story I'll post it.

Hope that your'e seeing the light of day with your storage room project. Actually I've had ( what I call) my junk room in much more chaotic condition. Here in Florida my laundry room is my designated "junk room" where I can leave a mess when I'm working on some project. In addition to being the catchall for items temporarily(which can stretch to years)in transit, it functions as a sewing room, painting room,woodworking room(minor projects) as well as of course the laundry and ironing(rarely) area. It's really not a large room(also windowless) and I often think about how unwisely we use the space in our house.

Still hitting 90 every afternoon down here with high humidity also. Probably the effect of the hurricanes in the atmosphere. Anyway, being stuck in,I get alot of stuff done that I wouldn't otherwise.

Paulette

RE: storage room project

I was lucky when I ventured into the storage room. I was looking for some sewing supplies and they were in a bin near the front so I didn't have to go too far into the mess.

My laptop has a DVD player on it and I know there is a cable to hook it up to the tv and I'm afraid it's waaaaayyyy in the back. I'm debating whether it's worth digging for or should I just got down to "Krazy Kiley's Electronic Store" and by a DVD player for $50

I look forward to hearing more about the robot in the pyramid. I'll take a look too and see if I can find anything.

Take care,
Margaret
