Very entertaining (and informative)Kelley! Am envious that you were able to meet Garnet-David in person, and hear his music. Now if you had met our wonderful Whirling Betty, I just don't know if I could stand it at all. :)

Ciao...

Darn you Kelley! I logged on to ask you a question and by the time I read your new post ..... what question? I had to follow my own advice and log off and think of something totally different till the darn question came back. By the way what did Horus look like? is he a half man half beast? Any way the question was... ta da... did you see the program where they re-constructed the whole of Stonehenge (oriented to the original alignment with the heavens). Verrrryy interesting.

Thanks for dropping in. Every time you do, I always link back and find myself absorbed in your writing.

Add Liz, David, Betty, and all their favorites and wow, I could blog away an entire day!

Not that that is a bad thing. Actually, its rather amazing. For the first time in human history, regualr people can communicate their thoughts to the entire world without any form of "gatekeeper" to censor the content.

Its revolutiionary. And Im glad to be a part of it.

Firedawg, you are such a card!

I dont know what Horis looked like, but I am guessing that there are several versions.

And no I did not see the Stonehedge program, but I will look for it on cable and think of you when I record it!

Thanks.
