TRIVIAL PURSUIT

Things I've learned from reading Smithsonian magazine today:
  • Every year the U.S. Federal government holds a Federal Duck Stamp contest for painters

  • The Tour de France turned 100 this year

  • Mummified pharaohs in ancient Egypt protected their toes with thimbles of gold

  • Robert E. Lee had tiny feet that he loved his children to tickle (not sure I wanted to know this)

  • Standing water in containers as small as a child's beach bucket or plastic car is enough to provide a breeding ground for mosquitoes

  • I have no desire, whatsoever, to ever visit Korea
Got some helpful advice from thesidhe (thanks!) and realize I need to hit the craft stores again for better glue and fixative. Then made the sad discovery last night that all my old tubes of watercolor paint and several ink jars have completely dried up due to years of neglect, so add that to the shopping list. Page 1 is nearly complete so after the current bout with glue dries I'll do some scanning and see what you all think. :)
