Although the passageway doesn't completely reflect Borglum's vision because it's missing some ornamental designs, he can rest easy knowing that the aliens that visit our planet 10,000 years from now will know who Teddy Roosevelt was.carved into the side of Mountain Rushmore in the  

Local historian Doane Robinson came up with the idea for Mount Rushmore in 1923 in order to promote tourism in South Dakota.


Carving of Mount Rushmore was started on October 4, 1927 by Gutzon Borglum, a famous Dutch-American sculptor who was selected for the Mount Rushmore project.



At his death in March 1941 his son, Lincoln Borglum, continued the work and it was completed later that year on October 31, 1941.







Initially, it was planned for the figures to be carved from head to waist, but a shortage in funding didn’t allow for this.

The vestal virgins were girls ????? for a period of 30 years. In the first ten years they learned their duties, in the second ten they practiced them, and during the third they instructed the services. Beside tending the sacred fires, the vestals offered sacrifice and poured on the alter ????? of wine and oil. They occupied seats of honor at public games.

If a vestal virgin broke her vow of virginity, she was sentenced to death. However, because there was a rule that nobody could spill the blood of a vestal virgin, the Romans circumvented this by sending them to a room.

was an American children’s author, editor, and philanthropist.
She was married to fellow author Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.

To make sure the loser wasn’t pretending to be dead, an attendant dressed as Mercury would touch him with his hot iron wand. Another attendant, dressed as Charon, would hit him with a mallet.
Oh. How exciting, eh?

Reminded me of the time several years ago I had told one of the resident here to come look at the lady who seemed to be confused, walking around the bench over and over.He said she is like that because of the electric shock treatment she had received and then he goes, “Don’t ever let anyone touch your mind”

Not liking how there’s laws  allowing family members and whoever forcing adults into treatment like electroshock therapy, medication and lobotomies.

In the year of > 1765.
Look at the picture #16 and #17 of the fireplace!  
Picture #18, love the window and the doorway. Perfect fit!
Picture #33 of the kitchen, rather disappointing. The cupboards and the counter tops not too impressive and the light fixture. Nope, it all sucks.
Picture #44, bedroom. Look at the door on the wall. Narrow and there’s a step up? Closet? Another room? Or stairs leading up to another part of the house? It’s the same with picture #47.
Love it! They don’t make houses like this nowadays, eh?Back to the year 1765.
