Babylonian tale of round ark draws wrath from some Christian circles
Fri Jan 31, 2014
Check out the details of the excavation of the Sumerian city of Ur, supposedly the home territory of the tribe of Abraham. At about the 4,500 year strata there is about an 18 ft deposit of silt under which lies more building activity. Definitly a large flood of some type. I think the legend of the f …

To burn less money, consider heating with wood
Wed Dec 11, 2013
I cut down 10 dead elms (Dutch Elm is sweeping our woods again). It took about 8 hours to drop them, buck them up and haul them to the house and 4 hours with a splitter to get enough to last the winter. So at $20/hour I spent about $400 in "time" and I will save about $800 on heating (Minnesota …
Stranded whales spotted disappointingly closer to shore
Fri Dec 6, 2013
There is something out there they don't like. Great Whites, submarines - who knows. I don't think they are dissoriented - they are coming in for a reason. Taking their chances in shallow water is better than going in the deep.
10,000-year-old house among amazing finds unearthed in Israel
