Danger in Halicarnassus.  Turkey, 1986.  Damn that's a long time ago.

My Pix

Its been a long time, almost a year since I last posted a photo. Last Christmas (09), I scanned everything left from Greece, intending to finish all the Greek photos and post them by end of spring.  Two things happened to thwart my purpose.  First is I was sick enough through the spring, summer and fall that there was no energy for such persuits.  Second, I was unhappy with the scans and due to the first reason, unable and unwilling to re-scan.  Fortunately, I've had more energy since December.  Also, I figured out a better way to scan and work on the photos.  So here is the first of the last batch of Greek photos from 1986.

This one is taken on Paros.

Another Interesting Map

Map of ancestry by county, US Census 2000


The scientists have managed to re-create what this creature sounded like as they found intact skulls.  Imagine hearing this in a dark Late Cretaceous forest.
