He’s Baaack . . .

It’s true, despite the better wishes of the Unites States Customs Department, I’m back from Africa and now here in the U.S. Remember that sinking feeling you had as a kid after leaving an amusement park, your mind dwelling on all those rides that you missed out on and couldn’t wait to come back and […]

Tower of Pisa Is No Longer The Leaniest

Monday, September 14, 2009

The famous Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy may have finally met its match. For years, the citizens of Bedam, Holland claimed their Tower of Walfridus, in Bedam, Holland, had more tilt.
