The Dead Sea The one thing that I want to experience in my life that I have not already done is to swim in the Dead Sea. It is extremely fascinating to me that it takes no effort at all to float, due to the amount of salt in the water. The Dead Sea is the lowest elevation on land and is one of the saltiest bodies of water on our planet. It has about eight times more salt than our oceans. It is such a unique place that it has become a center for health and research.
Universal Symbol of Freedom It is always fun to come across photos from the past. Check out these images from the late 1800s of the construction of The Statue of Liberty. The Statue of Liberty Enlighting the World was a gift of friendship from the people of France to The Unitied States. Isn't it crazy to think what people built years ago without the tools we have today? (Not to mention what they use to build more than a 1,000 years ago.)
How far would you go to decorate if you were going to have a special party? Well, to celebrate The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and raise money for the York Minster Fund, the Lindum company installed 16,000 square feet of grass in York Minster Cathedral. Nine hundred guests gathered for this joyous event. How fun! It looks so cool.
We have come a long way with technology and everyday there is a new product that amazes me. The Iris, invented by Mimi Zou, is a camera that is controlled entirely by your eyes. To get the perfect zoom you can either squint or widen your eyes. When it is time to snap the image, just blink twice. It can even identify people! Pretty incredible!
