Going Back to the Stone Age Cave House



Tim said...
I saw this on another blog and it had some details:
It has about 16,000 square feet, is in a small city, and has a stage where many artists performed--including Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band.


Jim Cook has preserved the club's unique find - a golf ball embedded inside the trunk of a tree.
The tree had apparently grown around the ball which had probably been lodged in its branches many years ago.
It was discovered when Richard Mitchell, greens keeper at the Eaton club in Norwich, felled the conifer and cut it into pieces, only to find the ball perfectly encased in the wood.
Club manager Peter Johns said: "It's an incredible find.

Once I have seen rifle caught in tree, in WWII museum somewhere in europe, but it was visible from outside without cutting...

I Shared Everything With Jealous Chimpanzee

Travis the chimpanzee's relationship with his owner was closer than those of some married couples.
Sandra Herold of Stamford, Connecticut gave him the finest food, and wine in long-stemmed glasses. They took baths together and cuddled in the bed they shared. Travis brushed the lonely widow's hair each night and pined for her when she was away.
If I left the house alone, Travis would give me a kiss.
"If I left with someone Travis would get upset,"
Herold said Wednesday.
Experts say the unusually human relationship would have been confusing for any animal. It may have also played a role in Travis' savage attack Monday on Herold's friend, 55-year-old Charla Nash of Stamford.

I'll have to try that on the Schuylkill.

"And I have one big advantage over other mechanics - I can repair cars in the dark."

Giant rat caught in China

A giant rat with one-inch-long teeth has been caught in the southern Chinese province of Fujian.
The rat, which weighed six pounds and had a 12-inch tail, was caught at the weekend in a residential area of Fuzhou, a city of six million people on China's south coast.
The ratcatcher, who was only named as Mr Xian, said he swooped for the rodent after seeing a big crowd of people surrounding it on the street.
He told local Chinese newspapers that he thought the rat might be a valuable specimen, or a rare species, and had to muster up his courage before grabbing its tail and picking it up by the scruff of its neck.
"I did it, I caught a rat the size of a cat!" he shouted out afterwards, according to the reports. Mr Xian is believed to still be in possession of the animal, after stuffing into a bag and departing the scene.
