Shoot Three - "The Louvre"

Belgium - as in waffles, beers, chocolates! Well done Peyton, Milt, Elaine, Mike Di., Joani, Michelle, and Doris!

"Winged Victory"

Similar to Versailles, where does one begin to see what's in this larger than life art museum? We focused on three major works of art and then wandered through the hallways to see its vast array of offerings!

Oh, the Big Three were the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, and Winged Victory! Finding them in this huge museum was not a problem - just look for the crowds! Wherever they gathered, there had to be a masterpiece!

Getting Older?

Where in the World?

Here are some interesting facts about various countries of the world. Just where would I be?

It is about the same size as the state of California.

Has over 32 million people living as of July 2013.

Its capital city is Rabat, but not its largest city.

Their official languages are Berber and Arabic.

For currency they use the Dirham.

Many of its cities commonly have mosques with beautiful towers called minarets, market areas called bazaars, old medieval sections called medinas and old fortresses called kasbahs.

Its most popular sport is football (soccer), its national team became the first African and Arab country to make to the 2nd round of a World Cup when they did so in 1986.

The university called al-Qarawiyin was founded in the city of Fes in 859 as a madrasa (an Arabic educational institution) and is considered by some to be the oldest university in the world.

Interesting Fact. . .

Experience is something you don't get until 
just after you need it.

Leaving on a humorous note, I hope!

Just grant me the senility
to forget the people I never liked,
the good fortune to remember the ones I do, and

the eyesight to tell the difference.
